Where can I buy a server to use as a personal vpn that google won't captcha rape me on??

I am IP banned from google and its services, not a huge deal since I avoid them but I am wanting to download some stuff off youtube as well as host a searx instance

This is a pretty exhaustive place for comparing VPS providers: https://lowendbox.com/

Also, I just found this dedicated server provider: https://www.kimsufi.com/en/servers.xml

The prices are insanely low considering that these are dedicated servers, not VPS's. For example, you can get 4GB of RAM, 2TB disk space and a two-core Intel CPU for €6 a month.

I actually knew the maintainer, a really insane right wing type. He asked me for furry porn recommendations, but unfriended me for saying that at least 1 evil thing was not jewish.


I think he just had a fat dick.


>i got kicked out of the project for being a tranny





He should just go work on one of the other forks.

That's pretty cool, bash can be really powerful. It's not perfect but it is damn useful.


The GPL license is problematic for the corporate world. Pretty much all proprietary software depends on open source projects and GPL makes leeching off of open source software in proprietary projects difficult. Therefore any organized group that promotes FOSS is a threat. It's all about the money.
I don't know how organized the smear campaign against Stallman was. IMO most likely it was just useful fools who went after him.

I'm doing the C++ exercises now. They seem to have enough mentors to let me ask for reviews. We will see how it goes, I'm a bit afraid of C++ due to the memes of it being a Lovecraftian horror.


I'm done with the main track of exercises, it was pretty disappointing. It's just 8 exercises and all of them are pretty simple, you don't really need to use any interesting C++ features. There are extra exercises and some of them are pretty interesting, but it's hard to get feedback on those. I'm still doing some of them but C++ is a mess, there's just so much to keep in mind while writing it, I don't think I'll using it in my free time much.


Stallman is his own worst enemy, but his autism made him more effective up until recently.

Not much content yet, unless it's hidden somewhere.


I remember browsing parazite (the onion website) back in 2013, good times


What's this board focused on?


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.

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?

I like the idea of IPFS. The real problem is getting people to use it. Doesn't matter if it solves all our problems if people don't use it. Like how Trump didn't get on gab when he was banned from twitter. Missed the opportunity to get millions of people out of a censorship regime and onto a freer platform. Now that mozilla and google are going to start censor stuff from the browser, as well as from search engines, I only hope that people will switch to free software instead of adapting to their total control.

>I actually haven't downloaded Brave yet. Has anyone here tried it?
After seeing this thread, I decided to take this version of Brave for a test drive. To see a somewhat mainstream browser support IPFS is heartening. IPFS seemed to load faster then I remember from the last time I looked into it during early testing. It was like at whatever point Tor began to not seem so impractically slow to use regularly. Brave's IPFS interface worked well aside from the fact that cutting and pasting links was a slight hassle and didn't seem fully integrated yet. Nitpicking over a small user experience issue though.
Brave browser is an interesting concept, but it is too bloated for my tastes. Interesting in that there are things like Tor and IPFS all wrapped up in one software package, but that's also the reason I dislike it. Would rather implement both those things separately. I suppose Brave has it's place and I'll follow it's progress, but generally prefer "less is more" alternatives to Firefox and Chrome.
>The real problem is getting people to use it.
Maybe a browser like Brave offering support will help with that?
>how Trump didn't get on gab when he was banned from twitter
Or spin up a Fediverse instance, communicate through that, and give his supporters a forum on something less centralized and more censorship proof. The hippy cliche of "tune in, turn on, and drop out" is good advice for anyone dealing with the headaches of current year centralized internet services and it's surprising that the boomers, who should be most familiar with that phrase from their youth, can't seem to apply that philosophy to the interwebs.

Is there a guide which will teach you everything that Lain knows? I'm looking for a complete collection of resources on computing, things that Lain would likely know. I will start with some basics.
I am looking for things like this but complete, assembled together in one huge, nonrepetitive volume.


Bumping. I guess a better way to put this would be learning about computers from the ground up.


File: 1619196248730.jpg (205.18 KB, 699x674, cyber_kurisu (4).jpg)

Disclaimer: I am not in the position you try to be so my opinion is less likely relevant.
It could help to look at simplified models of what you want to know: how a computer works, how the internet works and so on
Then you can start reading about those things you already feel like understanding the most and slowly digging your way into reaching your goal.
On the other hand, it is nearly impossible to theoretically understand a whole topic without practical training. Maybe get a job in a tech-related branch or get a pi and start setting up projects.
On the other hand, do you need to know the whole mechanism of big G's algorithm as much as a SEO-expert who earns money of it or is it could it be enough to know that it's contrary to your beliefs and that you maybe want to focus on tor-network or other less soykaf botnet-environments? What I want to say is: know your priorities.

What browsers do you guys use to surf the web?
I use firefox developer edition so i can install my won addons.

What other tools do you use to get around the net?

-I use Brave for YouTube and Anime
-I use Tor for research and imageboards


Depends on what for.
Ungoogled Chromium for my botnet stuff like G Drive or Slack which I need for my job, that's why they have their own browser I don't want google to read out any cookies.
Falkon for all nonbotnet stuff like imageboards and Tor when digging deeper.

Before I distrohopped I just brave for the botnet stuff (bc the inbuild adblocker was good when going on yt) and chromium for the normal stuff. But fuck brave. Not sure if I'm going to stick to Falkon but it seems okay, haven't really read into it yet though. I prefer it over Brave because I feel like a faggot with software like that.


wats wrong with brave


I use ungoogled-chromium too. It's really lightweight and fast compare to Firefox. Aside from that, if you really want Firefox-like UI without botnet, try Librewolf if you're lazy or harden Firefox yourself


It just feels like soyftware. I see that they have useful inbuild adblocker and stuff, but you know something is off, if the logo looks like a it should attract fortnite-players. Also it's build on chromium so ungoogled-chromium is a better option, as it will always be the best chromium-based option. Brave really is just a good browser (imo) if you want to grind it's BAT, which kinda is the biggest cuckold-move in cyberhistory, as your sidehustle would be to let corpos rewire your brain into knowing their products and brands for virtual money that is owned by a big corpo.
Also there was that donation incident, where brave just "took" donations that were donated to creators via brave wallet.
>When Bitcoinist reported on the ability to tip content creators directly from Brave browser, that was a positive thing, right? Actually, not so much when it uses creators’ names and photos, to collect donations ‘for them’, without their consent.

Thanks for the advice, I'll check it out sooner or later, chummer.

Hello /g/, let's share some neat terminal/tui programs shall we?
I'll go first and recommend you try out duf which just shows you a quick overview of disks and their usage. Here is its github: https://github.com/muesli/duf


The only fancy thing I use is htop but I guess everyone knows that.


File: 1618617290118.png (281.34 KB, 1298x757, glances-summary.png)

htop has always been my goto, but some prefer glances. glances might be considered bloated compared to top or htop, but it's built to do more then top or htop.


Never heard about glances, although I've been using bashtop which is probably a bit heavy on system resources but it looks really nice. Thanks for the recommendation, looks cool.
Don't know why wirechan thinks my post looks automated/spam but maybe making the body longer will help? Here goes nothing.


I don't mind bloat, but these look too crowded, there's so much going on. By the way htop has a surprising amount of features, it's worth looking around in its setup menu.

NetHogs is a small ncurses network monitoring tool. It will list connection speed or amount of data sent/recieved by process. It's not without it's quirks, but it's a handy tool.
