Mozilla To Build New Browsers That Conform To Internet Censorship

https://web.archive.org/web/20170815234815/http://www.naturalnews.com/2017-08-15-censorship-alert-mozilla-planning-kill-shot-for-entire-independent-media-by-blocking-all-non-approved-news-in-the-firefox-browser.html#

In November of 1737, decades before America officially declared its independence from the king of England, a young Benjamin Franklin published an essay in The Pennsylvania Gazette entitled, “On Freedom of Speech and the Press.” In it, Franklin wrote, “Freedom of speech is a principal pillar of a free government; when this support is taken away, the Constitution of a free society is dissolved, and tyranny is erected on its ruins.” Franklin went on to write, “An evil magistrate entrusted with power to punish for words, would be armed with a weapon the most destructive and terrible.”

Although this was written in an article published more than two and a half centuries ago, Franklin’s words are quite possibly more relevant today than they ever have been. Indeed, there is an ongoing effort by the progressive left and extremists such as George Soros to silence speech that doesn’t align with the liberal agenda. This effort to effectively gut the First Amendment is taking place virtually everywhere you look, from the mainstream media, to Hollywood, to college campuses, and perhaps most frequently, across the Internet.

Recently, the popular Internet web browser Mozilla Firefox announced that it plans on joining the fight against what it considers to be “fake news,” a term that to leftists means nothing more than news that is written by conservatives. Mozilla said that it was “investing in people, programs and projects” in an effort to “disrupt misinformation online.”

The first question that every constitutionalist and liberty-loving American should be asking is as follows: How does Mozilla define “fake news?” Are they only talking about suppressing radical websites such as sites run by white supremacists, or are they talking about any news that comes from conservatives? At the very least, it should worry you that companies like Mozilla are often reluctant to thoroughly define “fake news” – it is highly unlikely that this is unintentional.

Furthermore, what exactly gives Mozilla the right or the authority to determine what is misinformation and what is not? The United States Constitution is the law of the land, and the freedom of speech is an inalienable right from God. The fact that Mozilla thinks it has sweeping authority to select which speech is censored and which speech is not runs contrary to everything that America was founded upon.

With the assault on independent media getting increasingly aggressive, many Internet bloggers and website owners are desperately looking for ways they can continue voicing their opinions without being harassed, suppressed or silenced. If you are one of these people, you may want to consider using “Brave,” a relatively new web browser founded by former Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich.

On its website, Brave states that its goal is “to transform the online ad ecosystem with micropayments and a new revenue-sharing solution to give users and publishers a better deal, where fast, safe browsing is the path to a brighter future for the open web.”

If we are truly committed to one day restoring America to its constitutional roots, then we need to embrace initiatives like Brave and reject the political censorship that seems to now be running rampant across the country. Failure to do so will result in exactly what Benjamin Franklin warned about back in 1737 – the erosion of the Constitution and the establishment of tyranny.

So Jim (an ex-Gamer Gay fag and an old /pol/ sweetheart) made a new video recently, and in the face of the centralized clearnet's censorship schemes becoming ever expanded he has made the suggestion of going MAD against the clearnet giants. As some have pointed out though, this is a dangerous gambit due to Google Fiber expanding very quickly and them having the money to bide their time while they expand. Not just that but handing the internet to the ISPs is a bad idea since ISPs are much more HEAVILY centralized than web services and communities.

However I want to hear endchan's opinion on the matter, is this a feasible strategy, or did Jim as the vid's thumbnail/graphics suggests, drink a few too many vodka bottles in a stupor of depression?

How do you store your data/backups?

Hie, I'm trying to find a good solution to never get out of storage on my HDDs, for my backups and my regular use.
What is your data storage solution?
I want, if possible, a solution that is the most freedom compliant.
There is the usb HDDs, 3/4 plugged on a rasp.
There is the NAS with 3.5' HDDs in it.

FLOSS and licensing

Hello /tech/,

I'm not so familiar with software licenses so I started reading about the subject. At one point the question 'How does one profit from floss software?' popped in my head and these are some articles I came upon (quite outdated, but they still have a point). So GPL prevents companies from making proprietary software with your piece of software. BSD, on the other hand, does not (that's the case with Apple's kernel). Turns out the only way a company can profit from GPL license is by donations, offering support, teaching or dual licensing. Dual licensing seems like the most used option.

https://www.linuxjournal.com/article/5935
http://sealedabstract.com/rants/why-the-gpl-sucks/

>But there is a net effect on software development. Who makes money off GPL code? We go back to Novell and Red Hat, who test and package this software. And we see a trend–GPL code helps software testers make money. It helps QA people. It helps the people who answer the support phones. It helps everybody except software developers. Oh, maybe Google will pay them a salary as a goodwill gesture. But it’s really, really hard to make money from developing FOSS. You can make money supporting it. You can make money testing it. But no money developing it.

So my question is - does free software actually benefit the developer?

Communication best practices

I would like to open this thread to discuss the best practices of communication, essentially the three forms: archive sharing, text/image and voip (video conference).

The software has to be:
- Decentralized or distributed
- End to End encrypted
- Open Source

Prefered if:
- Audited / Formal methods (proof/verification)
- Anonymous
- Don't leak much matadata
- Good coding practices (privsep, sandboxing, etc).


For archive sharing:
- Retroshare
- Tahoe-LAFS
- IPFS

For messaging:
- Ricochet
- Briar
- Matrix
- XMPP with OMEMO

For VOIP/Video conference:
- Jitsi


Signal Protocol, ZRTP and WireGuard Protocol seems to be the best choices. But Signal Protocol has poor implementations and uses XMPP (leaks metadata).
Feel free to point better solutions...

Improving software and security

Hello my good fellows!

It is evident that the majority of mainstream software programs are shit, and while audits and the creators of a specific software program can tell one much about the quality of said software, audits can be fabricated and the user should look at the program itself instead of looking at who made it and where it came from. If more individuals studied computer engineering/science and programming and were able to audit programs, we would become stronger, and one could rest assured that their computer was tested to perfection. I have begun to notice that a major problem with auditing code is the fact that some software programs are massive and require teams to finish in a practical amount of time (Or one individual with ultimate dedication...), and this can be fixed by advocating for single purpose programs with lean code and minimal features with room for the user to build and add to it. Computers are amazing machines, and every individual with a laptop and a great mind can achieve amazing feats! One could build a self driving car with the power of programming and advanced mathematics, one can program a self-learning AI that they can interact with, one can program drones or small satellites to take pictures of the earth and predict weather patterns, and the list goes on and on.
I am here to encourage you to begin making your own single purpose programs by yourself or with close friends and a passion to teach others about programming and auditing simple software programs. I don't believe there is a government plan to keep us all down and steal our data to destroy us, but your information is worth money, and data mining allows companies to look at the big picture and advertise products.

Free(Possibly) and open source software with a single defined purpose made as minimal as possible with space to allow for building onto it and improving it.

About fake social media accounts

Should you not use any social media or use a faked, sanitized social media accounts?

I ask this question as I look at these new predictive algorithm. They analyse your facebook account, and gives some score to the police, to help them take a decision. There is plenty of different methods, and different means using that. Social media analysis is pretty much widespread.

I personaly don't use any social media, even though I have to say that I used them a little bit when I was younger (I quickly removed them though, nothing more than 2/3 years).

The problem with these kind of algorithm, or simple human verification (because it's pretty much automatic today to go verify your social media account, even in case of getting a job), is that it's gonna automatically mark you as suspect, since just a few don't use them.

So what do you think, should you try to fake out an account, with the risk of actually giving too much even though you try to fake it out (or if you use a bot, to be easely spotted), or should you simply go full boycott?
Soon, we'll be forced to pay with our smartphone, and so use a recent one with the app who allows you to pay. Now, there are people not getting hired because they don't have any social media account... I'm mostly afraid of the latter.

Thanks.


PS: Maybe is it too much effort, since your ISP by looking at the keywords you enter in the search engine, can know everything about you... I don't trust https.
I'm more and more afraid that without an enormous effort from your part, and huge technical capabilities, you can't do shit.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freedesktop.org

Poettering (a Red Hat employee) is not the source of the problem in the modern Linux ecosystem. Red Hat is the problem. Red Hat has almost complete control over freedesktop.org (xorg, DRI, cairo, mesa, wayland, systemd, dbus, PulseAudio, Gstreamer, xft) and GNOME (this includes all its applications and GTK+) and has a massive influence over the Linux Foundation and many GNU projects. Red Hat is a for-profit corporation so any action they take will only be for their own benefit and NOT yours. Regardless of whether their software is "FOSS" or not, they've slowly been redesigning the core design of Linux so that they could restrict your usage of it to their products, making you dependent on them. GNU/Linux should be renamed Red Hat OS, as it's essentially impossible to escape their tentacles on it.

HELP with drivers

Hi Windows users.
Has anyone managed to install Nvidia Quadro drivers on a GTX board? Both uses the same processors, the only difference are on the drivers, but Quadro costs much more because of that. I'd want to try those, because I need more performance on video edditing softwares and I don't play games.
I did a basic search, found some tips[1], but I thought it would be better to ask on imageboards, because the autistic people from here are (generally) smart on those topics...
Also, if you have any advice on configurations for better performance, I would like to hear that (I'll try to install Windows Server instead of Win7, just to see if memory consumption drops, since Win7 has a lot of bloatware shit).


P.S: Yes, I need Windows for this, can't run all the software on Wine yet. Looking to switch my workflow to Flowblade instead of Premiere Pro, but I can't do After Effects animations on any open source software (Blender or Natron could do it, but I'd need to learn them and I don't have enough time now).

Alternative to dictionary attack

I recently saw this wifi-cracking github:
https://github.com/brannondorsey/wifi-cracking

I don't think dictionary attacks is a efficient way to do it, though. Does anyone know if there's some tool that I can input information that I got through social engineering and then this tool generate a custom dictionary?
Example:

- The informations on a file:



$ cat foo.txt

name=Richard
age=32
house=1337
pet=John



- Then input on "tool":



$ sudo tool -i foo.txt -o bar.txt



- The generated bar.txt would be a custom dictionary based on many informations from foo.txt. It could even use some neural networks.
I don't know how to program this thing, but I don't think it's complex and I think that someone already did it (that's why I'm asking here).

Certain combinations end up canceling themselves out, so you end up bein able to create these intricate looping pixel waves that don't do shit but they are pretty neat.

Linus Torvalds: Free Software Foundation "insane crazy people"

https://lists.linuxfoundation.org/pipermail/ksummit-discuss/2016-August/003580.html

We all knew it. Now Linus said it.

In a mailing list discussion about GPL enforcement, Torvalds touches on the pitfalls of involving lawyers in GPL disputes and argues for the superiority of the open source approach, stating: "the people who have created open source and made it a success have been the developers doing work - and the companies that we could get involved by showing that we are not all insane crazy people like the FSF."

Thoughts? Butthurt?

Illumos-based OSes

Anyone using or dabbling in an Illumos-based OS like OpenIndiana?

After 10 years of using Linux (though I used OpenSolaris a little here and there before Oracle killed it), I've been using OpenIndiana as my daily driver.

On the surface, it's a lot like using any Linux distro with MATE. I have access to most* of the tools I'm accustomed to like gcc, TeXLive, Firefox, and VLC.

I'm really not familiar with the under-the-hood features of the OS that come from Solaris, like DTrace and Zones. On the other hand, I never used systemtap or LXC on Linux, either.

OpenIndiana will be putting out updated installation .isos in the near future. In the meantime, you can install with one of the currently available isos and update. If you want to try OI in a virtual machine, be sure to allocate plenty of RAM. 2048MB minimum.

https://www.openindiana.org/

*With the exception of Tor Browser Bundle, which I'd love to have on OI.

ffmpeg help

Hey guys, with Adventure Time coming to an end I would like to create a web-dl complete torrent of all seasons.

I like what tinymp4 did here: https://thepiratebay.org/torrent/10387424/Adventure_Time_Complete_Season_1_2_3_4_5_720p_-_TinyMP4
These are the 720p episodes with the intro and outtro cut out.

What I want to do is maybe write a script or use bash tools to rename the episodes in a uniform way to cut out the extra stuff in file names, then use something like ffmpeg to cut the beginning and the end off each file but leave the rest as is.

Any ideas how I should go about this?

browser randomly disappears but the process is still alive until you SIGKILL it. happened twice today within my 1 hour of browsing

webdev console also takes ages to open
when saving webms, they often get at 0%. if you cancel them, they remain stuck there, and when you restart the browser (even after clearing everything with ctrl+shift+del), they silently download in the background (they arent visible in the downloads list) and then give you a popup saying they're done, or they overwrite the completed version with a half finished version of the file, whatever the fuck palememe feels like today

Google

>When you upload, submit, store, send or receive content to or through our Services, you give Google (and those we work with) a worldwide license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works (such as those resulting from translations, adaptations or other changes we make so that your content works better with our Services), communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute such content.

Google is the website that receives the largest amount of traffic in the world.[1] By utilizing any service provided by Google, you are indirectly agreeing to their TOS and willingly giving your information to them, while also allowing them to do as the
y please with said information. Many websites have Google Analytics, AJAX, API's, and many other services from Google included in their source code.

Google has become too powerful, and evidence exists of them manipulating search results to push their own political agenda.[2] This is a form of brainwashing as they could easily censor valuable information and news and could get content of their choice to the top of the list, and with the amount of people using Google, the results could be devastating.

We could fix this problem by convincing current Google users to switch services and educate them on how they are being used and how their information is at risk. However, with the amount of integration Google has made into other services and the fact that many electronics come preloaded with their website as the default search engine is going to be a large barrier in our way. If someone was willing to compile the information I have included here and created an infographic, it would be a great way to inform people and damage Google.

Randomised spam

I was thinking we should brainstorm this. There are undoubtedly some very smart people here. No wrong answers, just brainstorm.

How can you stop the randomised spam. The text is random, the image is random and the link is random right down to the host.

Obviously a standard filter couldn't cut it, but what about a random filter, or even a smart filter.

Let's say we block posting all links not on a white list. We could also block posts using words not found in a dictionary. Naturally not being able to post without subject text solves the image problem.

In addition, I have tried following the spam links, mentioned in previous thread, but they don't lead anywhere. I cannot understand the motivation for these posts. If it was ad money then just filtering the links should solve it, but it doesn't seem to lead to ad sites or somewhere requiring registration. I get the impression the spam is generated by someone with the motivation purely of attack. In that case, why don't we see more spam, is our current filtering that good?

From searx.me:

>The searx.me server is reaching its limits.
>Searx is no commercial enterprise, it lacks all the resources available to the services you normally visit, we don't have neither a marketing department, nor do we have datacenters, nor devops teams.

So, I thought about setting up our own (imageboard users, mainly endchan and lainchan) instance. If you guys help me find a openbsd server (VPS or dedicated) I could do it. The server would use obsd httpd(8), have no logs, have a hidden service and (maybe) a clearnet link (with TLS provided by Let's Encrypt). No javascript or cookies too, and no google crawling.
Anyone here interested? If you know any good host (outside of the US, Canada, China, Russia and UK) that has the last stable branch of openbsd running and where I can have root without limitation, at a good price (<$30) we could plan it.


ps. no, I don't want to use any other system. If you want to do it by yourself, go ahead.

Wikileaks Release CIA Scribbles 28 April, 2017

Scribbles 28 April, 2017

Today, April 28th 2017, WikiLeaks publishes the documentation and source code for CIA's "Scribbles" project, a document-watermarking preprocessing system to embed "Web beacon"-style tags into documents that are likely to be copied by Insiders, Whistleblowers, Journalists or others. The released version (v1.0 RC1) is dated March, 1st 2016 and classified SECRET//ORCON/NOFORN until 2066.

Scribbles is intended for off-line preprocessing of Microsoft Office documents. For reasons of operational security the user guide demands that "[t]he Scribbles executable, parameter files, receipts and log files should not be installed on a target machine, nor left in a location where it might be collected by an adversary."

According to the documentation, "the Scribbles document watermarking tool has been successfully tested on [...] Microsoft Office 2013 (on Windows 8.1 x64), documents from Office versions 97-2016 (Office 95 documents will not work!) [and d]ocuments that are not be locked forms, encrypted, or password-protected". But this limitation to Microsoft Office documents seems to create problems: "If the targeted end-user opens them up in a different application, such as OpenOffice or LibreOffice, the watermark images and URLs may be visible to the end-user. For this reason, always make sure that the host names and URL components are logically consistent with the original content. If you are concerned that the targeted end-user may open these documents in a non-Microsoft Office application, please take some test documents and evaluate them in the likely application before deploying them."

Security researches and forensic experts will find more detailed information on how watermarks are applied to documents in the source code, which is included in this publication as a zipped archive.

Gallium Nine

From what I gather, it passes data from directx emulation straight to the GPU via a mesa function, without translating it to OpenGL. Essentially a passthrough of some kind for wine.

Are all d3d9 capable radeon cards compatible? Is this the standard Mesa shipped with most distros or do you get a special version from somewhere?
More complicated: How can Mesa (an opengl implementation) pass direct information like that? Doesn't that go against what OpenGL does by design? Shouldn't this technically be for Vesa or whatever driver actually interacts with the hardware?

New Imageboard Concept in Early Planning Stages

PROMISEDCHAN (name liable to future change)
There is a new imageboard-software concept in the works. Addressing the problem of powerful moderating positions being compromised and shitting up the board against the will of board communities and their established board culture.
(See: 8/b/, 8/pol/, etc.)
>Nothing that isn't spam or illegal is deleted, ever. You can subscribe to different moderation teams (and bots) to have the shit filtered to your liking. There would be a default moderation team for each board but the default would change if the majority changed the moderators they subscribed to.

>To keep normies from freaking the fuck out a default profile of moderation subscriptions will be applied by default, the default moderation will be decided by an impartial algorithm that takes in to account the modoration most users in a board choose, weighting the chooses by activity.

Unfortunately there is a shortage of skilled /tech/anons who are willing to assist in the planning and development of this new imageboard concept, which is holding back development.

LynxChan 1.8

What is LynxChan?
LynxChan is a chan engine developed with performance, efficiency and flexibility in mind. It powers several chans ( http://lynxhub.com/lynxchan/res/285.html ) and contains a number of community-created front-ends ( https://gitgud.io/LynxChan/LynxChan-ThirdPartyFrontEnds ).
It offers a number of features, including:
-File deduplication, saving bandwidth, disk space and allowing users to post files without uploading them.
-Overboard, aggregating posts from the whole site on a single place so users can browse more easily.
-Multi-board, allowing users to aggregate posts from only selected boards.
-Extensive anti-spam and anti-flood tools that aim to both impede and reduce damage without inconveniencing users.
-Add-on support, which enables features to be added without the need for a fork.
-Modular front-end and language pack allows for the site owner to customize it without having to change the actual software.

LynxChan 1.8 main addition is multi-lingual support.
This feature allows site owners to specify alternative language packs and front-ends and associate languages to them.
When an user visits the site, the engine seamlessly picks an available language from the user and serves content in that language.

This version brings some other minor features so far:
-More granular and specific verbose modes.
-A terminal command to perform a clean shutdown of the engine.
-A board setting that allows for a maximum age that threads are allowed to be bumped.
-Improved spammer and TOR ips storage.

This version will be released 03/17, LynxChan can be found at https://gitgud.io/LynxChan/LynxChan.

Here is what was discussed in 2009 (please note that this is a concept and the final script may be entirely different):

>Sussmanashi no Naku Koro ni (すさまなしのなく頃に, Susamanashi no Naku Koro ni, commonly abbreviated as SNAK) is an adult Japanese visual novel developed by /prog/ which will be released as a limited edition on January 3rd, 2038 playable on the PC. Sussmanashi no Naku Koro ni began as a series of prelude short scenarios in the /prog/ fandisc SICP no Shana. The gameplay in Sussmanashi no Naku Koro ni follows a plot line which offers pre-determined scenarios with courses of interaction, and focuses on the MIT course 6.001 and the book Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs (SICP).

>Sussmanashi no Naku Koro ni incorporates actual slides from the 6.001 lectures and SICP exercises which have to be answered correctly in order to get the good ending.

>SNAK centers around the period in which the protagonist, Grun Ur, enters the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) after moving to America from Japan. Most of the main stories revolve around the magical Y combinator and its powers.

>How much you pay for enemies cyber weapons? Not malware you find in networks. Both sides, RAT + LP, full state sponsor tool set? We find cyber weapons made by creators of stuxnet, duqu, flame. Kaspersky calls Equation Group. We follow Equation Group traffic. We find Equation Group source range. We hack Equation Group. We find many many Equation Group cyber weapons. You see pictures. We give you some Equation Group files free, you see. This is good proof no? You enjoy!!! You break many things. You find many intrusions. You write many words. But not all, we are auction the best files.

OP here

I have a whole free week on my hands and i want to make most of it by installing a fresh new distro. Since i value /tech/'s opinion, tought i'd ask you guys.

Been using Linux Mint fot a year, but now i want a distro that is clean and not full of software i don't need (like Mint is). Can't decide between Debian or Arch, help me maybe? I kinda have a life, so if Arch is really that high maintenance, it's out of the picture.

Appelbaum

Is there any more news on the Jacob Appelbaum situation? It seems like he's disappeared off of the face of the Earth after the allegations. I find the fact that multiple witnesses have come out against the stories that were told on their behalf disturbing.

>Website comes out with a bunch of rape allegations
>Appelbaum denounces the allegations
>Appelbaum is effectively exiled from the free software community despite the lack of a trial
>multiple witnesses come out saying that the allegations made in their name were false, or at best heavily misinterpreted
>Even if all of the witnesses declare that Jake is innocent, his reputation is forever destroyed

Scary stuff.

Internet Censorship

If you are an American, you can thank these two senators (John Mccain and Fritz Hollings) for censoring a large portion of the internet and preventing people from gaining knowledge and learning.

>"Schools and libraries subject to CIPA may not receive the discounts offered by the E-rate program unless they certify that they have an Internet safety policy that includes technology protection measures. The protection measures must block or filter Internet access to pictures that are: (a) obscene; (b) child pornography; or (c) harmful to minors (for computers that are accessed by minors). Before adopting this Internet safety policy, schools and libraries must provide reasonable notice and hold at least one public hearing or meeting to address the proposal."

It is because of them that filtering software such as IBoss exists and why schools have google integrated within their computers to force students to use their services and to use a filtered search.

This is an example output.

https://cyberx-labs.com/en/blog/operation-bugdrop-cyberx-discovers-large-scale-cyber-reconnaissance-operation/

>CyberX has confirmed at least 70 victims successfully targeted by the operation in a range of sectors including critical infrastructure, media, and scientific research. The operation seeks to capture a range of sensitive information from its targets including audio recordings of conversations, screen shots, documents and passwords. Unlike video recordings, which are often blocked by users simply placing tape over the camera lens, it is virtually impossible to block your computer’s microphone without physically accessing and disabling the PC hardware.

>Most of the targets are located in the Ukraine, but there are also targets in Russia and a smaller number of targets in Saudi Arabia and Austria. Many targets are located in the self-declared separatist states of Donetsk and Luhansk, which have been classified as terrorist organizations by the Ukrainian government.

judging by the targeted countries i wonder who would benefit from something like this...

So my second hand x220 just arrived and all works fine except the backlight adjustment buttons. No biggie. Just set up some aliases that change /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness.

Thing is I noticed a power folder in intel_backlight. Do I manually need to change power usage depending on the value of brightness or is it done automatically ?

/sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/power/control is set to auto but ../power/runtime_enabled is set to disabled.

That kernel flag from the archwiki x220 page doesn't work.

iBoss is Botnet

Why the fuck does this stupid filter even exist? On work provided computers, this shit is integrated into the computer and tracks your location constantly and you can't end it's process in the task manager/monitor.

At the same time, it is always using your network regardless of your internet browser being opened or not.

Deleting Old Accounts

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?

Important Information

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.

Going off the grid (relatively speaking)

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?
