So I want to use pgp for pass, for a clear riseup mail account and for a onion mail service but I don't want subkeys. Should I go for seperate gnupgp instances or what.

I don't think there would be another way to do it.

Anonymous 07/09/2017 (Sun) 20:45:36 [Preview] No. 9209 del
It shouldn't be too hard. Just make some aliases, add some environment variables for pass and you're pretty much done.

Is there an email alternative that isn't shit ?

i2p-bote - hard to install for normies
retroshare - all that qt and social stuff bloat
bitmessage - both stable and trunk send my cpu to hell for some reason

Plus none of these have a decent command line interface.

This is nice and sleek. I really enjoy this and so do the masses. This is a great browser because when you press escape it opens another window.It has a detailed list of privacy settings.You cant change anything but it lists what is out of your hands. It tells me who I am.I've got nothing to hide. The fake news blocker is crutial for staying informed. What more do you need? This is evolution. From text to symbolic icons.No more primitive text we are one step closer to the cosmos.

Deleting Old Accounts Anonymous 07/09/2017 (Sun) 20:37:43 [Preview] No. 9169 [Reply]
What's the best way to go about deleting old accounts on websites I no longer use? I don't want my info available if these websites get hacked. A lot of sites don't have the option to delete your account yourself. Should I email their support and ask them to delete my account? That will leave an email record if their email ever gets hacked. Should I just leave these sites alone and hope for the best?

If you decide to delete an account that belongs to you on a website, know that the data that is linked to your account may still exist on the host's databases. It is a good idea to read the website's Terms Of Service to know what will happen when you use their services. On websites that allow you to delete your account with a few steps, you should delete all your data on the account and then delete the account without attempting to log into it again. If the website does not allow you to delete your account, then you should attempt to delete all the data linked with the account, change the password to a long string of random letters, numbers, and symbols, and never log in to the account again.

From this point forward, it is recommended that you should learn about the website hosting the services you plan to use and remembering that you should NOT upload your personal information onto the internet.

I couldn't delete my Stormfront account as well and mods refuse to do so.
Just click on username, slam your keyboard, change your email to 10minutemail.net address, slam the keyboard in the url bar, copy it in password field and click save.
Remove all unwanted posts if you can.

Important Information Anonymous 07/09/2017 (Sun) 20:34:00 [Preview] No. 9150 [Reply]
A few of my posts on other imageboards were strangely deleted for "breaking the rules", so I am afraid that they may be compromised.

But listen to this advice:
Unless you can fully Audit software yourself, you should assume that it is doing work behind your back. Many audits on the can be faked, and what is the chance that you will attempt to confirm that it is fake? 99% of people do not have the time or knowledge to audit something as large as a linux system.

If you are truly paranoid, you should drop computers completely or start coding your own programs.

It's possible I deleted your post on 8/tech/ because I thought it was bad bait. If so, I'm very sorry. This thread looks fine.

Dude, in future, lead with an image like that. It's really good.

The 8ch/tech mods are the same as here but it's much slower here so not as much gets deleted. They tend to be a little twitchy on the delete button because that's the way the BO wants it, and many agree they don't want another /g which slid badly under zero moderation for years on 4chan.

>This board is badly moderated in my opinion.

Your opinion + $3 will get you a cup of coffee.

Besides, what you go on to describe isn't shitty moderation, but a shitty userbase. And the userbase of every imageboard I'm aware of at the moment is fucking garbage. I suppose a moderator could delete posts by shitty users, but if they did that, the board would be left with nothing but a handful of posts I made months ago before I stopped coming here regularly. Unfortunately, there were only ever 2-3 good posters here. I was, by far, the best, and I'm not even that great.

As for your OP, what you're saying is mostly true, but it's not particularly interesting. Yes, you have to audit programs or write them yourself in order to trust that there's no malicious intent in them. But, as the poster who posted the pdf on the "Trusting Trust" attack points out, that's not enough. Here's where it gets even more fucked up: there is a mitigation for the "Trusting Trust" attack. It's called "diverse double compiling". You can look up the guy who came up with it for his Ph.D. dissertation. Name's Wheeler.

The thing is, it doesn't matter. So you know your compiler isn't compromised. Fine. What about the silicon you're running it on? Who audited that? Got an electron microscope and the semiconductor engineering chops to do it yourself?

You can stop using computers, personally, if you want. You're still in them. Unless you go up to the Canadian north and live a primitive, subsistence hunter-gatherer lifestyle, you're in the Black Iron Prison, baby.

Relax. WWIII is coming soon, then it'll all be over.

Going off the grid (relatively speaking) Anonymous 07/09/2017 (Sun) 20:32:48 [Preview] No. 9144 [Reply]
I'll soon be moving into a new flat, and haven't gotten a contract with an ISP yet.
However, since it is still possible in my country to buy prepaid SIM-cards and reload them (~1$/GB) with cash, I'm contemplating just rolling with that and limiting my Internet consumption.

I would use it stationary, and the city I'm using it is densely populated, so there are many base stations. Wikipedia tells me that E-OTD could yield my position with an accuracy of 25m, even less if my modem cooperates using GPS/Wi-fi signals.

That's not quite safe enough, so I might use a VPN in Panama or somewhere that I'd pay for in Bitcoin, and configure an OpenWRT router to connect to it by UMTS.

Is there something I should look out for in order not to identify myself?
What kind of open hardware would you recommend for the router and modem?

Anonymous 07/09/2017 (Sun) 20:33:01 [Preview] No. 9145 del
Do it, like, require contract with ID?
>your position
Radio signal source can be located even if it does not use cellular network.

Use Tor.

Just setup iptables on your computer and be done. OpenWRT is fine too, but I have no idea if it can run Tor daemon plus firewall out internet.

Most routers you get from your ISP are absolutely horrible; you should firewall on both machines (with iptables, pf, or whatever), one is not a substitute for the other.

If you are planning on going off the grid, then I would recommend investing in a automobile to live inside of and installing extra gas tanks with many spare parts to be self-reliant in the event of a breakdown. Many individuals attempt to go off the grid, but soon realize that they are helpless due to the fact that going off the grid with utilities in mind is going to require some prior knowledge and savviness.

Relatively empty countries such as Australia, Canada, Greenland, Norway, Etc. are your best bets for being left alone and avoiding a war.

When using electronics, use TOR at all times and never send personal information over your connection as TOR may have compromised nodes.

This is way over kill and still very insecure. You would be better off hacking the wifi of a neighbour and possibly even using hidden repeaters or a big dish to cover the distance.
Else, going the mobile communication network route with a vpn should be just fine. I believe you can use a usb data device in an asus router and tomato even supports routing all wan traffic over tor, although I would recommend the vpn instead as tor is slow.

Well this is why I have such high hopes for the future in open source sites with board creation. If mods ruin it, move board. If admins ruin it, move site. In theory it's fool proof. The only problem is, today much of the user base are fucking posers, who continue to visit a site long after it's been ruined.

Lainchan has always been shit; with the odd quality thread/post here and there. When the ownership was transferred i had imagined things getting better but I'm not surprised they didn't. Some of the threads are straight out of reddit and the /feels/ and /civ/ boards are particularly awful, that, and the mods really are insufferable.

The site suffered and that has had a noticeable effect on the userbase. Granted though, it has held on to some users. Cyberpunk is an interesting niche with not a lot of schway underground alternatives.
