That actually sounds like an amazing power combo that I didn’t know I needed in my life.

There is a subreddit you might find interesting r/prepperfileshare

Beyond that, you could always just vacuum seal multiple low power SOC computers with portable solar panels, couple of USB hard drives, Blu-ray drives with archival blu-ray discs and then just bury it in an appropriate container. Adequate depth in the dirt can make an effective faraday cage. Store an archive of wikipedia and other useful information. I probably wouldn’t bury any lithium batteries with the solar because they would likely be useless without receiving a charge underground for so long.

Work on getting prepared now so you’re used to living that type of lifestyle before the bombs drop. It makes you more likely to survive unexpected circumstances while you still have civilization around to fall back upon while you’re working out all of the unforeseen kinks. Ask me an questions you might have if you have questions.

Also the other advice in this thread is good too: prepare for the most likely disasters, and focus on strengthening your local community to local disasters.

Check out Fedora SIlverblue and see if it fits your use case with toolbox.

No. What I mean is bribing courts to bypass the requirement to follow the license.

I’d fuckin riot

Mass surveillance never results in good outcomes for the population no matter whom participates. We all need to work together to push the banning of mass surveillance into the public zeitgeist.

Why am I not surprised that this type of thread would be on a reddit alternative website HAHAHA

This is the main problem i2p has compared to TOR. There isn’t nearly as many resources as expected for help in using i2p. Tor has easy to use things like the preconfigured Tor browser and TAILS, but as far as I know i2p doesn’t really have these things. I would love a preconfigured TAILS like distro with browser and torrent client for i2p torrents.

I mainly use Protonmail so it’s been a long while since I’ve used an email client like Thunderbird. What does everyone think are some features that an Android version of Thunderbird might provide over using another email client from fdroid or just the protonmail app (besides the obvious of protonmail only working with the app and thunderbird supporting multiple email providers of course.)

The blog also talks about UDP support potentially coming soon and even makes references to interactive voice and video over TOR which sounds super exciting!

Wouldn’t UBI improve working conditions because companies that had bad working conditions would find themselves unable to attract workers and thus go bankrupt because they couldn’t make money because they didn’t have any workers? I can’t tell if your comment is for or against basic income.

I think games should focus on optimizing their code, instead of relying on third party software.

Unless a game takes a hit in sales, developers have no incentive to optimize their game for performance. The chip shortages are causing gamers to stick with their older GPUs so maybe that might affect things.

I realize I’m partially to blame, and regret it.

Then open source the code behind twitter, remove barriers to decentralization, encourage self hosting of twitter instances by making it easy for even normies to achieve. Twitter has the funds and ability to achieve this. Put up or shut the fuck up, Jack.

You could either donate to help Pop’s development or use its more community oriented upstream distro Debian.

With a Smartphone I will be tempted to browse social media & play games

If you ever have to switch to using a smart phone again, one thing that might help is making the screen monochrome in the android developer options. Removing the colors from the screen makes our ape brains not get as excited and more focused on tasks. It also works on desktops.

Edit for additional thoughts: One downside of using a flip phone compared to a smartphone is the lack of security based applications like encrypted messaging for example.

What is the appeal of a flip phone? Is it specifically the physical form factor or is there something else I’m missing?

What is the use case for doing this compared to just using a different distro with newer packages? Fedora is very nearly as well supported for most software but has newer packages than Ubuntu while also innovating by including newer technologies first. With also Ubuntu pushing Snaps heavily as well makes me question why anybody runs Ubuntu at all anymore when better distros exist.

What does a society do with people that are homeless by choice?
I've worked helping homeless people in the past on many occasions, had friends whos family members were homeless, had homeless friends, and had even been homeless myself for a small amount of time. There are a lot of people that are homeless through no fault of their own, there are people that are homeless because of drug abuse (which perpetuates the cycle). Both of these people need more access to the help that can be provided to them, but I mainly wanted to talk about a third category of homelessness: People that are homeless by choice. People that are homeless by choice have told me that they enjoy the lifestyle and enjoy the freedom that it brings despite the negatives. They actively rejected help from people and expressed their desires to me to intend living that lifestyle forever. While I think every person has the right to live their own life the way they see fit, homelessness often has negatives to the people that aren't homeless. Feces and needles in the streets, breaking and entering into homes, garages, sheds, vandalizing and burning them down in the process. Of course all homeless people aren't like that but the point still remains: a healthy society generally doesn't have homeless people. How do you achieve a balance to allow the people whom are homeless by choice to live in a way they see fit while also minimizing the perceived issues of homelessness? What are your thoughts on homeless people? I ask these questions in good faith and I hope you also do the same. Thank you for your thoughts and opinions.
