I just searched for the headline to find the article, then copy and pasted the url. I'm on a desktop though, and things are slightly different on mobile.

 

These might help if you're on mobile or a tablet though:

one not connected and one connected with vpns and fake emails

i picked up a 13inch old refurbed dell for 90 quid

Yeah kinda figured that every time I update any gear I have it gets more and more problematic. Only want this for games and films I already own. Seems pointless connecting to internet.

A new Boston Dynamics demoralization ritual just dropped.

 

 

 

They're becoming too agile. We have to stop these monstrosities taking what jobs are left before they add aimbots and turrets. Soon we're going to need our own based Tay Tweets bots to defend ourselves against the globohomo bots.

 

Some say some parts are CGI and meant to demoralize. Might be true, but I don't think we should trust our overlords regardless.

Think that’s pretty much the end of us

i dunno if they actually need weapons, they could probably just break your neck or spine if you couldn't out run the killer bots.

How to delete your accounts on Big Tech Platforms: https://justdeleteme.xyz/

Prism Break: https://prism-break.org/


Social Media Alternatives:

Instead of Twitter or Facebook, use a Pleroma/Mastodon (Decentralized) instance:

Decentralized (Federated):

Normal or Cucked Federated Servers:

Federation Software for Self-Hosters (click me):

Centralized:

Instead of reddit, use one of the following:

Instead of Instagram, use PixelFed:

Instead of tumblr or wordpress, use Pocketnet:


Messenger/Communication/Email Alternatives:

Text-based Messaging:

Never use garbage like Whatsapp, Skype, Snapchat, SMS or Discord. Nothing you do on those applications is private. Telegram isn't much better.

Always favor applications that have strong encryption, an open source code and run on a decentralized network.

Great tier:

  • Jami: https://jami.net/ (Peer-to-peer, open source, easy to use, strong encryption, multi-platform, great choice) (use it with a VPN, Orbot or a DHT Proxy)
  • Briar: https://briarproject.org/ (Peer-to-peer, even more secure than Jami, maximum privacy, routed through Tor, Android only)
  • Session: https://getsession.org/ (Decentralized servers, open source, strong encryption, very secure)
  • XMPP: https://xmpp.org/ (Galaxy-brained choice if you self-host)
  • For XMPP Server Software, consider Prosody (Guide) or ejabberd
  • For XMPP Client Software (apps), consider Conversations (Android), Gajim (Windows/Linux Desktop) or God forbid, Siskin (iOS) (Make your iPhone-using family & friends use Siskin or ChatSecure)

Okay tier:

Who needs the internet for chatting?

More information:

Chat Servers:

Never use garbage like Discord under any circumstance, and more importantly, NEVER DOWNLOAD THE APP. It's spyware and fiercely pro-censorship.

Consider the following alternatives for privacy, security and decentralization):

Video Conferencing:

Email:

It should go without saying but never use Gmail, Outlook/Hotmail, Yahoomail, Yandex or any of those other big-name Email providers. They can see your emails, and will look through them if they ever need to.

For unimportant things like forum registrations, consider free, disposable email services like Mailinator or MailDrop, or temporary email services like MinuteInbox or 10MinuteMail.

For more important exchanges, consider one of the smaller, privacy-focused providers below, and if you can, use email encryption software like GPG.

Email Clients:

Never use Outlook Express/Windows Live Mail, and try to avoid Mozilla Thunderbird. Consider:


Fixing your Internet:

Browsers

The Best Choice for the future:

  • Web Browser: https://git.nuegia.net/webbrowser.git/ (Fork of Pale Moon)
  • Why? Because it doesn't depend on Google or Mozilla for updates. With Google and Mozilla growing increasingly anti-freedom, forks based on Chromium and Firefox become increasingly difficult to manage.
  • Pale Moon? The developers are complete shitheads. They are also growing increasingly anti-freedom.

Instead of Google Chrome/Opera, use Ungoogled Chromium:

Prefer Firefox? It's spyware by default, but you can mitigate it in the settings and the about:config page. Make sure you read these articles:

Alternatively, you could download a hardened user.js or LibreWolf, a fork of Firefox without the spyware. Don't get Waterfox, it's trash.

Tor Browser: https://www.torproject.org/ (Excellent privacy, not every site will work, but a great option to have)

Further reading:

Essential Browser addons:

Instead of Google Services(drive, account, etc), use Disroot or Librem One:

Search Engines:

Never use Google, Bing, Yahoo or Yandex.

Whatever you choose, make sure to set it as your default search engine in your browser's settings.

The Best options:

The rest:

Instead of Wikipedia, use Infogalactic, Everipedia and Citizendium:

Instead of Youtube, use Freetube, Invidious, BitTube, Lbry/Odysee, DTube, PeerTube and Bitchute:

Decentralized (Federated):

Instead of Amazon, support small, local businesses.

Instead of Ebay, use OpenBazaar:

Instead of Twitch, use DLive or Trovo:

Movies/TV/Media Streaming:

Never pay for any subscription-based service like Netflix, Prime Video, Hulu, HBO Max or any of that crap.

Self-host your own Media-Streaming server using Jellyfin, Plex or whatever server software you like:

Combine it with Sonarr, Radarr, Jackett and Deluge so you can fetch any Movie/TV show you want:

Setup Guides:

Instead of Spotify, use Funkwhale or Soulseek:

Instead of uTorrent, use Deluge, Transmission or ruTorrent:

DNS:

Never ever use your default DNS, Google DNS or Cloudflare DNS.

Always use a secure, encrypted DNS protocol like DNS-over-TLS or DNS-over-HTTPS.

Make sure whichever DNS provider you choose records no-logs, and doesn't censor. (read the privacy policy)

If you don't set up your own Pi-hole, consider a provider with built-in adblocking.

https://wiki.lelux.fi/dns/resolvers/

https://www.privacytools.io/providers/dns/

Some good options:

Domains/Hosting:

Never use garbage like Godaddy, Bluehost or Google Domains. They are all pro-censorship and anti-freedom.

Consider Epik as your Domain Registrar. They fight strongly free speech and provide excellent service:

And read this Guide on how to host a website securely and correctly:

Self-Hosting Software:

VPN:

There is a lot of debate regarding whether or not most people need a VPN, particularly with the increased adoption of the https protocol.

If you decide to buy a VPN subscription, make sure it meets the following criteria:

  • Based outside of 14-eyes jurisdiction (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Five_Eyes)
  • Has a strict no-logging policy
  • Has a built-in killswitch
  • Has strong encryption (EG- OpenVPN with SHA-256) and PFS
  • Allows torrenting
  • Allows crypto payments

Instead of fiat/paypal, use decentralized cryptocurrencies. Even better, use anonymous cryptocurrencies like Monero, and anonymous P2P exchanges like Bisq:

All joking aside. Are these all things you use yourself? Guess I’m wondering how much I can trust these sources/ downloads. I know that your well up on this stuff. I’m definitely not. Use my laptop just for steam.have an old pad I use to talk on hear which doesn’t get used for anything else either.  Haven’t removed any preinstalled content or files for fear of screwing the performance. When I’ve tried with previous pcs I’ve ended in a rabbit hole of problems.

Anyway I would certainly trust your links over Google recommendations.
