>Jim hijacks the site from Hiro, blaming him for the leak in the first place

They moved it to 5ch to launder the domain into something with no legal baggage, and which Hiroyuki (who apparently now lives in Paris in order to escape various court ordered payments due in Japan) couldn't plausibly scrape to oblivion, I would think. It seems doubtful a Tokyo court verdict will help secure a .net domain seized in the US, in any case.

The real question I still have over all this is why Hiroyuki let his ultra-shady hosting company (deliberately initialed "NTT" in order to confuse itself with the real NTT keiretsu) have control of the DNS records in the first place. He surely brought this upon himself.

As usual, everything about this whole affair is an abject lesson in how not to run a site...

Hey /tech/. I've been thinking about something recently -- would you advocate for the possibly illegal leaking of documentation from companies like Microsoft, Apple, Google, Facebook, etc, in an effort to further the Free Software movement? And if you had the chance to do this, would you?

This would obviously have many benefits (most obviously helping people make a free alternative to a proprietary program or network service).

I mostly see people bitching about stuff here. It's time to get /comfy/ier

Here we post about all around good software. Try and keep things on focus and not derail into an all-out brawl on what is good and what isn't. No obviously shit software like GNOME, systemd, modern web browsers, ect.

I'll start.

FVWM window manager

-oldest surviving window manager (at least in active development)

-minimal yet looks great out of the box

-low memory usage

-programmed by creator of rxvt, other veterans also/have work on it (including tmux creator)

-active community

Alternatives:

-openbox. less memory usage than fvwm, tons of themes but almost no new updates since 2010 (creator considers it a finished project)

Hi /tech/, it's been a while since the last thread about this project, so I thought I would make a new thread because I've been more active in editing the website, and I have more free time now.

The Online Spyware Watchdog is a website I have been working on, on and off for a while, you can visit it here:

https://spyware.neocities.org/

This is a website that is supposed to be a resource for learning about spyware- software that collects information about its users. It basically exists right now as a collection of articles that describe specific software, assigns it a "Spyware Score", and then has a detailed explanation of how that software spies on you. The idea of the website is that it's a living document, and that new articles and changes to existing articles are contributed to the website over e-mail. So, it's supposed to be a place on the internet that consolidates all the information about how a certain program is spying on you into one article- you'll notice that if you want to find out all of the ways that a program like Discord spies on you, the information is spread out across the privacy policy and several threads and forum posts that explain other spyware features that the privacy policy doesn't mention. This website is supposed to have a synopsis of all of that information so that people can be more aware of it.

Lately, the website has been getting a lot of traffic, a lot more than it was getting earlier, I think this is because a few weeks ago RMS created a page about why Discord is bad on his website linking to an article on the website: https://stallman.org/discord.html And then there was the controversy about Discord among /pol/ users which happened more recently which probably drove a lot of traffic to the site as well. The website has had almost 40k total hits when i'm writing this. So since a lot of people are looking at the site, I thought I would fix it up a little (I've been working on it more and adding new articles lately) and make a new thread for it.

It's not that I don't want to write these articles, it's that I'm only one person. I want to write them and eventually I hopefully will have written them, it will just take some time. Unity game engine for example phones home, a lot of things in modern games do too. But I can only write one article at a time. If any of you can contribute (it needs to be CC0 now also) then I will gladly put your articles up. I'm thinking of writing about unity first.

By Brian Fagioli

Linux and user data collection. Some people will decry such a thing, but they would be wrong. As long as the collection is opt-in, it is totally acceptable and in line with Linux ideology. When is it questionable? When users don't have a choice. With Windows 10 telemetry, for instance, users can opt out of sharing some data with Microsoft, but not all. And that's a problem. Even if Microsoft's intentions are pure, and designed solely with improving Windows 10, users should be able to refuse all data sharing at time of installation.

With Ubuntu desktop, Canonical has started collecting installation data, but it is doing it the right way. It shows the user exactly what data could be shared and lets them choose whether or not they want to send it. It is 100 percent optional -- the way it should be. Guess what? According to the company, 67 percent of users decided to do so. That is an impressive metric in itself. By being open and honest, Canonical achieved what I would call a successful conversion rate. Best of all, it gleaned a lot of interesting data, and it is sharing the analytics publicly.

ALSO READ: Peppermint 9 Linux distribution now available with Ubuntu 18.04 base -- download it now!

"We are asking for this data in order to build a better picture about our user base, and indeed the user base of any other distro that would like to get involved. With this data we can understand typical hardware setups and ensure that we are aligned with that hardware. We also get a good insight in to which translations are most important and where in the world people are using Ubuntu -- all of which means that decisions we make for Ubuntu desktop will benefit all our users," says Will Cooke, Desktop Engineering Manager, Canonical.

Cooke further explains, "In February we committed to making this information public, and that is absolutely what we will do. Our design team are working on the best ways to present the data and ensure that information is safe and anonymous. Our web team will then implement those designs on a public website. This work is scheduled to be completed during the 18.10 developmenPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

>Copperhead is falsely claiming that the CopperheadOS code cannot be redistributed on GitHub. The licenses clearly permit non-commercial redistribution. It isn't even relevant that I own most of the code as anyone can modify / redistribute anything but branding non-commercially.

SO ANYONE CAN FORK THAT CODE AND REHOST ON GITLAB BUT COPPERHEAD BRANDING MUST BE REMOVED FIRST!

Meanwhile, James is going to a gig of San Fagcisco metallic hardcore punk band First Blood, whose one of the members possibly has Jewish ancestry.

>In a decision that will define privacy in the digital age, the US Supreme Court decided 5-4 on Friday that the government needs a warrant to access its citizens' mobile phone location data.

<Written by Chief Justice John Roberts and joined by the four liberal justices, the majority opinion extended the Fourth Amendment on unreasonable search to include location records that mobile phone operators hold on their customers – a critical distinction that extends privacy protections beyond a physical device.

>Building on another landmark case in 2014 when the court decided [PDF] that a warrant was required to search a mobile phone, the court decided that the "reasonable expectation of privacy" that people have in their "physical movements" should extend to records stored by third parties.

<The case itself concerns Timothy Carpenter who was arrested in 2011 as part of an investigation into armed robberies at Radio Shack and T‑Mobile USA stores in and around Detroit. The police went to mobile phone operators and retrieved four months' worth of location data (known as CSLI or cell site location information) that showed Carpenter was near each of the locations when they were robbed.

The evidence proved crucial to his conviction and 116-year sentence but Carpenter's lawyers argued that the gathering of his location data violated the Fourth Amendment. They lost on appeal with the Sixth Circuit.

>That Sixth Circuit decision has however been both supported and opposed by a number of other appeals courts (the Fifth, Ninth and Eleventh Courts have all decided on similar cases), making it not only a prime candidate for Supreme Court review but also a closely watched case.

<Thanks to its potentially huge implications, the court was careful to stress that its decision was narrow and only covers the specific issue of location data held on an individual by a mobile operator.

Is "folk" slang now? That is more a rural/southern thing than a black thing unless the urban youth (tiny niggers) have started using it recently. I've noticed more pretend country people in the last few years. At some point it became cool to get a lifted truck, buy camo, and pretend to be country even though they live in the city and well off areas. I'd noticed a lot of black teenagers mixed in with these groups and I just assumed they were copying the latest trend the white kids came up with.

Forgive me, I'm old. I don't understand why it suddenly became popular to pretend you are poor.

The use of the word "folk" is part of faggy white liberals trying to sound black (poor by proxy) I guess. I don't know or care, it's all pretty stupid to me. The effort to be "poor" while standards of living are higher than ever is laughable. Fucking stupid.

Also there is a movement towards white working class culture growing in popularity. I think it's a good thing, but it definitely creates some posers. If only these kids knew what it's like to actually have to scrape by for a living. They'll figure out soon enough.

Knock off a couple radio shacks, get 116 years.

Murder someone, get 10 years.

Steal billions from Enron investors get 5 years.

Steal trillions orchestrating housing collapse, pay a small fine.

God I love this country.

Yea I agree it's better than the nigger/thug culture for sure. I'd rather see black kids pretending to be farm boys than white kids pretending to be from the hood. I was just surprised that they've latched on to the word "folk". I stopped using social media years ago and I no longer keep up with the retarded shit normalfags do anymore. "Folk" just seemed like the last word that would ever become slang considering how common it's used where I'm from. I don't know how they are using it but here people say things like

>Those people are good folks

All of the time. I assume the niggers butchered it and the posers even more so.

Why do people keep shilling VPS running VPN as a great privacy solution, am I missing something?

>buy VPS

>run VPN on it

>post that the jews did 9/11 on twitter using the VPN

>twitter gives the IP that posted that to Mossad

>Mossad finds out the IP belongs to a VPS

>they ask who paid for the VPS

>you get vanned

This doesn't seem any different from a commercial VPN solution expect for the fact that you are more unique. It's worse if the commercial VPN is an actual no logs service.

Use Tor? If it's good enough for the pedos and they stay not caught, it's good enough for your Pajeet ass to shitpost

what's with all these stories lately of pedos getting caught? like in disneyland and that dude who had 58 terabytes worth? if they were using tor, how did they get caught? i think tor is decent, but it's far from perfect. it's like saying you can drive around anonymously until you get pulled over and have to give your license.

None of the stories I've seen lately have anything to do with Tor. It's all people doing shit on their work computers and getting busted by IT, or getting reported to the cops by a jealous roastie spouse, or just flat-out admitting it to the cops when they're under investigation for something else.
