FOSDEM was last weekend, they are now uploading the recordings. Did you watch any of the talks? Are you planning to watch any of the recordings? Let's share interesting talks and discuss them!

 No.1647

I usually collect around 30 talks to watch but end up only watching three of them.

The Distributed Wired is coming, anons. Just at the time that we need it most, too.

>The Brave browser recently added support for the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) protocol in its beta release channel (desktop only).

>IPFS is a peer-to-peer (P2P) protocol that can be used in web browsers to visit websites that are hosted by the website’s visitors instead of a central web server.
>This is called the distributed web.
>When you open an IPFS link (ipfs://example/) in Brave, it will open it using a public web-gateway server by default. Gateways are public web servers that proxy content from the IPFS network via a traditional web server.

I actually haven't downloaded Brave yet. Has anyone here tried it?

>isnt brave spyware
Brave does whitelists some advertisements, but discloses that fact. With the BAT token integration, it could be considered an advertising platform of sorts. If that's a concern, you'd have to lock down some settings like you would in Firefox with about:config. I'm not sure if it should be called spyware for that, but people talk shit. It tries to do many things and is most definitely bloated. Is what it is.

Maybe worth mentioning in this thread. Brave has started a search engine. Like it or not, at least it's an attempt at another competitor in a world where there is not much choice in that department.

I know this is kind of a meme on boards like this, but is it actually possible to learn university-level mathematics on your own? Not a full mathematics program, just the equivalent of some select courses. How would one go about it?

Why does maths take so long to learn? Compared to programming books, books on mathematics seem to be at least twice as long and take ten times as much time to work through. Is maths just this much harder? Or am I just untrained for it, and it will get better with time? And there's so much I would love to learn, it's really overwhelming.

One of my profesors could look at pretty much any equation and solve it without doing any calculations on paper in a few seconds. He told us that in order to do this, you just need to practice.

 No.2002

>>2001
That sounds amazing but does it transfer to new, unfamiliar parts of mathematics?

 No.2003

>>2000
I don't think they take longer to learn, but it probably depends on 1.) your skill of thinking abstract 2.) Your integrated RAM
For Maths you need to think way abstracter than for programming. Sure programming is abstract as well, but you always get something out of it, that is translated into an action or some kind of feedback on the computer. While in maths all you get out of it is maths. It's like programming but never running the code.
And by integrated RAM I just mean how long you can go on with one thought without forgetting the start of it

 No.2004

>>2003
It's just strange that people spend 12 years in school learning maths only for university-level mathematics to be completely different.

Seems very bare bones for a place that calls itself a zine. And it's only article has many spelling mistakes. I'd also argue the problems the author faces are already solved with Distro's like Ubuntu, Mint, and Pop! OS. I personally don't like the idea of centralizing Linux.

i think culture has shifted due to all things cyber written and inked in the 70s-90s becoming mainstream. i mean, the matrix is /cyb/ af, and that was heavily funded by a big studio. cyberpunk effectively became mainstream. so much of what gibson predicted came true. some of it we're living due to hardware getting so cheap. i have scores of systems laying around that i can throw stuff on. phones are dirt cheap too. we're living it. Thoughts?

I wanted to use linux for everyday use while windows for gaming, so i dual booted manjaro and windows 10, but the parititon for manjaro is only 2gb and i cant increase it around 100gb, so now im going to use windows 10 for everything else normally while linux manjaro for tor browsing and wasting time ricing it up but i still want privacy + security on my linux so what should i know, install, or do in order to not be spied on by glowies?

Why can't you resize the partition?

 No.1652

Resize your Windows partition and encrypt your linux partition with luks or something like that. Instead of default windows bootloader get grub ot refi

 No.1653

shrink your windows partition and leave some space for linux. if it doesnt let you, it might be too fragmented

Basic security programs: icecat, anonsurf, onionshare, i2psnark, truecrypt 7.1a, KeepassXC.
Encrypt with luks. Add password to BIOS. Only store glowie shit on encrypted external drives. Use keepass to generate and store all passwords. Keep master pw in your head and no where else.
Good email providers: disroot and riseup. VPN of course.
Alternatively, do what >>1649 said and keep tails on a bootable USB or create a partition for Qubes for fedposting purposes.

 No.1655

Depending on threat model, making something like Manjaro "extremely secure" might be more trouble then it's worth. A lot of the hardening comes from the kernel and having the right dot files / configs in place to make best use of those features. Even if Manjaro offers hardened kernel in their repos, I'd imagine the OS might have to be tweaked a bit to take full advantage of it? And depending on how motivated the glow-in-the-darks are, hardware can also be a consideration. Many of the pros try and exploit the hardware as well as the software. Some red teams having designated driver experts writing custom exploits in assembly on a case by case basis.
These anons gave good advice
>>1649
>Qubes OS, Whonix, Tails, or some combination thereof.
>>1654
>Basic security programs…
There's also Kodachi live boot OS. I can't vouch for it since I haven't taken an in depth look at it, but it's a thing and thought it might be worth a mention ITT. Also, Parrot OS is an interesting project.
As an aside, one can even pick up some knowledge by looking at how Debian, and even Ubuntu, configure their distros. INB4 UBUNTU REEEEE! I know Ubuntu default desktop leaks meta-data and their implementation of systemd is bloated and would require a thread unto itself. I'm only referring to the fact that Debian and Ubuntu are commonly deployed as servers and have some sensible defaults in that regard that might be useful for some to look into.
Also, building upon a basic Alpine install is another interesting option. Potential to have something with a very small attack surface and somewhat of a security by obscurity factor compared to other distros.

Not my picture, but i've been working on moving my work flow over to it.
