fellow traveler is absolutely a masonic phrase. People will say traveler. They will ask "are you a traveler?" or "are you a fellow traveler?" or "are you a traveling man?"
>The logo is a tunnel.
that alone is fine but with the rabbit signaling it looks like a maglev tunnel.


May be coincidential. I think otherwise because there is a disproportionate amount of this kind of symbolism in tech.

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

The term fellow traveller (also fellow traveler) identifies a person who is intellectually sympathetic to the ideology of a political organization, and who co-operates in the organization's politics, without being a formal member of that organization.[1] In the early history of the Soviet Union (1922–91), the Bolshevik revolutionary Trotsky coined the term poputchik ('one who travels the same path') to identify the vacillating intellectual supporters of the Bolshevik régime. Likewise for the political characterisation of the Russian intelligentsiya (writers, academics, and artists) who were philosophically sympathetic to the political, social, and economic goals of the Russian Revolution of 1917, but who chose to not join the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (CPSU). Moreover, during the Stalinist régime, the usage of the term poputchik (fellow traveller) disappeared from political discourse in the Soviet Union, but the Western world adopted the term fellow traveller to identify people who sympathised with the Soviets and with Communism.[2] In U.S. politics, during the 1940s and the 1950s, the term fellow traveler (U.S. spelling) was a pejorative term for a person who was philosophically sympathetic to Communism, yet was not a formal, "card-carrying member" of the American Communist Party. In political discourse, the term fellow traveler was applied to intellectuals, academics, and politicians who lent their names and prestige to Communist front organizations. In European politics, the equivalent terms for fellow traveller are: Compagnon de route, sympathisant, and progressiste in France; Weggenosse and Sympathisant in Germany; and compagno di viaggio in Italy.

https://www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/135600.html

Meaning Someone sympathetic toward a certain point of view without being a fully paid-up member of the club. Origin In its literal meaning 'fellow traveller' just means someone who travels with you. It was first applied to non-communists who were inclined toward the views of the Communist Party by Leon Trotsky. He used the Russian word popútchik to indicate that. The term fellow traveller in this sense came rather later, in the New York publication Nation, 1936: "The new phenomenon is the fellow-traveler. The term has a Russian background and means someone who does not accept all your aims but has enough in common with you to accompany you in a comradely fashion part of the way. In this campaign both Mr. Landon and Mr. Roosevelt have acquired fellow-travelers."

"It was during that period that I became interested in freemasonry. ... In the eighteenth century freemasonry became expressive of a militant policy of enlightenment, as in the case of the Illuminati, who were the forerunners of the revolution; on its left it culminated in the Carbonari. Freemasons counted among their members both Louis XVI and the Dr. Guillotin who invented the guillotine. In southern Germany freemasonry assumed an openly revolutionary character, whereas at the court of Catherine the Great it was a masquerade reflecting the aristocratic and bureaucratic hierarchy. A freemason Novikov was exiled to Siberia by a freemason Empress. I discontinued my work on freemasonry to take up the study of Marxian economics. The work on freemasonry acted as a sort of test for these hypotheses. I think this influenced the whole course of my intellectual development." The founder of the Red Army, Freemason Leon Trotsky.

With i2p isn't there an ip you can plug in like with tor (socks5 127.0.0.1:9050) I think port 4444?? If so then you can add i2p to the mix. I think it called an out-proxy. You can also use this to run i2pd with proxychains i2pd.I have found this proxychains setup useful because running i2pd with torsocks doesn't work.

others are correct on UPnP

wifi is insecure, use cables as much as possible

NAT should be enabled, but it isn't as important as making sure your router isn't compromised. There is FOSS router software available for maximum security, have a gander and lurk.

I use a cheap but private VPN service, with encryption and (allegedly) no IP logging reading the ToS.

I do not use wifi, that is insecure. My wifi chip in my computer (along with the bluetooth chip and camera) have been physically removed. Linux of-course.

I use Mozilla Firefox for the most part, sometimes Tor too.

One thing I do is make sure I manually program Bleachbit to scrub sqlite files in my browser directory routinely. Logs, caches, cookies etc: content-prefs.sqlite, cookies.sqlite, formhistory.sqlite, healthreport.sqlite, places.sqlite, signons.sqlite, webappsstore.sqlite (and their associated file formats) from my browser directory. Tor too stores these same kinds of databases, so any browser you use you'll want to learn what is in those directories and what they store.

Then, I also use Random Agent Spoofer to spoof my browser agent (spoofing metadata about what OS I use, what kind of browser it is, headers, get requests, etc.) and also allows me to disable webgl and geolocation in chrome.

I also use noscript and HTTPS Everywhere. Scrub noscript whitelist and reconfigure the list to your liking, whatever suites your browsing habits.

Go to about:config and learn how to use it, but be careful!!! There are some tweaks you can use to fortify and secure your browser, and to make it stop bragging about data.

Yeah I noticed this a while ago and updated the file in endconf.git but forgot to copy it to the rest of the repo locations. Should be updated now. I guess the whole idea is that there is a best way to do something, (Tor settings for instance), so lets find that best way and spread it.

I've been off of the ball for a while though. For instance I noticed recently that xtrac-ytpl.sh has stopped working. I'll look at this next weekend, but I've got homework up the wazoo.

I strongly believe that binary package based distributions are not the way to go for security. You're trusting the packager or the packaging team not to insert their own backdoor or malware, and you have no way to check if that has happened. Everything running on a secure computer has to have been compiled from source that is resident on your computer. That way if you suspect that something is wrong, you can at least check. I don't have the time or the expertise to do this but there are enough computer security experts out there that will, and will hopefully raise a red flag in a blog post, or in an article, or publicize it in a bug tracker. Right now, by using parabola (debian, ubuntu,mint,fedora,etc) , I'm trusting the packager that they don't work for an Intelligence agency of some small European country, or for a hacking team operating out of Russia. If they get caught (unlikely) they can just change their fake name and move on to the next distribution of linux (if they're not already doing it to the packages there as well).

I generally fell off of the wagon when I realized that my computer hardware and operating system were a major point of unreliability, and the probable source of my leak and privacy issues.

Binary package based distributions are a good place to start for someone learning to use GNU/Linux, but they're not the place to be for secure / private systems. Those are just my opinions, I'm not an expert in computer security, but by talking about it we'll get to the bottom of this eventually.

Endware Endwall 05/03/2016 (Tue) 08:54:28 [Preview] No. 32 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Endware is a suite of programs geared towards internet privacy, security, and anonymity.

Endwall: endwall.sh is an iptables based firewall script designed to be implemented on any linux distribution shipped with iptables. endwall.sh is based on default drop policies, coupled with a novel strategy of passing packets on local host ports only for those enabled by the enduser. It comes with a variety of well used ports enabled with several additional port passing configurations available by uncommenting the script. It provides essential security to a new user.

Endsets: endsets.sh is a script that adds blacklisting and whitelisting functionality to endwall.sh. It depends on the program ipset. It is persistent on reboot if you enable ipset as a service. This is the recommended blacklisting tool for endwall if you are running a server or planning on opening up ports and services to the public and will require daily blacklisting of new incomming IPs.

Endlists: endlists.sh is a traditional text file list based blacklisting and whitelisting script. It has slow performance, and can't be updated on the fly. Good for <1000 ip subnets, very tedious and slow to run for more than that. Blocks the IPs by adding them as individual rules to the iptables ruleset. Works but not recommended for heavy duty on a server. May be useful for workstation use to block ip ranges if you are not opening up ports and services to public clients.

Endtools: endtools are a collection of scripts including alogz.sh, mlogz.sh, spamlogz.sh and iplookup.py. These scripts will help to service an enduser of endwall in adminstering endsets/endlists.

iplookup.py is a geoiplookup script written in python and requires python and pygeoip. It has simmilar functionality to maxmind's geoiplookup program and uses the maxmind *.dat files.

spamlogz.sh is a script that searches through log files to find flagged log entries flagged in endwall.sh, endsets.sh and endlists.sh.

alogz.sh is a daily log reading script designed to read the output of an apache http server's log output.

mlogz.sh is a daily log reading script designed to read the output of a postfix smtp server's log output.

>How's it going so far? Also, stay healthy.

I just wrote a paragraph and it got wiped out when I went to get the captcha block bypass. I'll try to rewrite it:

I'm on it. I am stuffed up with homework, I have a major project due on Monday, and a midterm on Monday, so its not happening this weekend. My next free spot to try is on Thursday, I have a midterm next Friday, so realistically next Saturday is optimal.

I haven't tried to write it yet, it should take about 30min-1hr, but I just need a free 3hr stretch where I have time to start it.

Health. Funny you should mention that, because I've been sick with a mystery illness that started in June 2016 and lasted until 2 weeks ago October 2017. It started like flu but then moved into a persistent cough followed by a long duration sinus infection. It was probably antibiotic resistant pneumonia or meningitis and it fucked my year up. I went to the doctor like 5 or 6 times and got a bunch of different antibiotics and nasal sprays that did nothing. It fucked me up hardcore and ruined my entire year. I might have been poisoned, but I'm not sure. It also could have been a bio-weapon, or due to the mass influx of immigration bringing more non indigenous diseases.

I think I'm better now, but I think my mom has it now.

I've been on 4hrs of sleep all week because of school. Anyways I'll work on the revisions to pdfclean.sh next Saturday. I'll make it happen. Thanks for your patience.

Get a nasal spray and use colloidal silver to spray it in your nostrils three times a day. You can also breath in said colloidal silver water so that it goes to your lungs. Breathing in ozonated air will be very harsh and will make you cough up mucus and everything else inside your lungs, nasal passages, throat, etc., but after it all comes out and your body calms down (after drinking some water, preferably distilled ionized water) you would feel cleaner and you'll breathe better at least for 15 minutes after the inflamed effects of oxidation stops, although it's really the charged singlet oxygen atom formed after breaking down from ozone into O2 and O that has that effect in going against free radicals.

I use a 2,000 ppm colloidal silver solution which I dilute it. I think it's still available on (((Amazon))). MSM crystals tastes bitter so take with magnesium citrate or even magnesium ascorbate so that you can get your magnesium and vitamin C at once. Preferably, take it with your vitamins and supplementation. Also, look into taking high dosages of both chlorella and spirulina, though make sure it's high quality, broken cell wall for chlorella for higher absorption, and don't buy blue-green algae from klamanth lake, it's not clean. Here's another good youtube channel but this time from the ONLY vegan that interests me since he got high levels of B12 without supplementing it, check his perfect bloodwork video for more info on how (spoiler: he takes lots of chlorella). https://www.youtube.com/user/watershed11/videos

MS DOS 6.22 runs in 384K of memory (1994)
MS Windows 3.11 runs in 2MB of memory with a full mouse driven GUI (1994)
Macintosh OS 7.53 runs in 7.4MB of memory , full GUI + TCP/IP (1996)
Macintosh OS 8.1 runs in 13.2MB of memory, (1997)
Macintosh OS 8.6 runs in 26MB of meomory, (1998)

OpenBSD 6.1 starts in text mode command line in 27MB of memory
OpenBSD 6.1 in Xenocara uses 65-80MB of memory to start up.

## from recollection:
Windows 7 800MB of memory (2009)

Parabola GNU/Linux starts in text mode cli using 150MB of memory
Parabola GNU/Linux in weston uses 300MB of memory

>why the hell does Linux need 150MB to start up and release a console to me?

"Linux" doesn't. Parabola does. Maybe Parabola sucks. I dunno. I just checked my Slackware installation:

Without X: 54 MiB
With X & a lightweight window manager: 83 MiB

It could be lower, too, but I am running a number of daemons like ntpd and sshd, and I recompiled those that don't come compiled with hardening flags by default. Usually, that means they take more memory. The tradeoff is better security.

I trust FreeDOS more than I trust GNU/Linux. Get your system back up and running. I used to run this on a Pentium III system but it corupted the file system twice in a row after copying some files into the games directory. I Wiped and reinstalled, and tried it again same result. So I stopped using it, and started using MS DOS instead. But that aside I think that FreeDOS and OpenGEM have a real future. I think that FreeDOS should be an important part of the private computing future. They just need to port a heavy duty file encryption program to the base system and I'm sure gpg is already ported. When you get your system back up please post the memory usage results. Thanks!

I don't want to sound cliché but I suspect great part of the RAM in parabola is thanks to systemd.

Don't give up on GNU/Linux, there are some distros that take it to extremes to cut the packages to minimum. Source Mage in particular has the philosophy of only including what you want, nothing more, and the sources are clean and untouched. I don't have access to my installation but as soon as I get it I will post results, meanwhile look at how some guy went to have a graphical environment with 97MB.

Okay, shill. Take your overpriced garbage list and go back to reddit. You really added nothing new to value. instead of pointing to actual hardware with libre support like wireless chipsets with ath9k firmware or marvell-chipset based routers with 802.11ac support or mediatek-based NAS that runs fully free software you posted some Libre© TecnoPenguin™ overpriced jew shit.

RC2014
http://rc2014.co.uk/

RC2014 is a simple 8 bit Z80 based modular computer originally built to run Microsoft BASIC. It is inspired by the home built computers of the late 70s and computer revolution of the early 80s. It is not a clone of anything specific, but there are suggestions of the ZX81, UK101, S100, Superboard II and Apple I in here. It nominally has 8K ROM, 32K RAM, runs at 7.3728MHz and communicates over serial at 115,200 baud.

RC2014 is available in kit form for you to solder together.  Through-hole components are used throughout, making soldering easy, even for those with limited soldering experience.  Along with a selection of modules to extend functionality, such as serial terminals with HDMI output, digital input modules or, simple keyboard, the RC2014 is a very adaptable computer.

Assembly guides can be found here:

As soon as you turn RC2014 on you can start programming in Microsoft BASIC.  This is very easy to get started with and some very complex programs can be written.  To get right down to the metal, though, you can write your programs in Z80 machine code.

Development of the RC2014 has lead to a more powerful machine with pageable ROM, 64k RAM, compact flash storage and a whole range of expansion peripherals.  With the right modules, it’s now possible to run CP/M, which opens the RC2014 up to a wide range of software.

RC2014 can be bought from Tindie:

Z80 Retrocomputing 18 - Z180 CPU board for RC2014
https://youtube.com/watch?v=D9u9hhNjcEY [Embed]
Dr. Scott M. Baker
In this video, I build and try out a Z180 CPU board to replace the Z80 CPU in my RC2014 retrocomputer. Aside from simply being faster than the Z80 that I'm currently using, the Z180 offers a lot of on-board peripherals (serial IO, timers, interrupt controller, mmu, dma, etc). I benchmark the 20 Mhz Z180 against my 7.3728 Mhz Z80. I'm saving exploration of the onboard peripherals for a future video. For more retrocomputing projects, see http://www.smbaker.com/

is there reason to use torsocks over git's builtin socks5 proxy?

wouldn't it be better if you just register 127.0.0.1:your_tor_port as http.proxy and https.proxy variable by git config?

Not sure what revision of git your distro ships with but using torsocks should be considered depreciated hack for applications with builtin socks5 proxy support.
