MinceRas for firefox, it's still not as horrible as crashium :>Mar 24 21:40
MinceRespecially with many tabsMar 24 21:40
Sosumiyou mean chromium?Mar 24 21:41
Sosumino idea about that oneMar 24 21:41
MinceRindeedMar 24 21:42
SosumiI just mainly use firefox because it runs fine everywhereMar 24 21:43
Sosumiand it's easy to export bookmarks in between multiple machines/OSsMar 24 21:44
MinceRi mainly use firefox because it's the most stable full-featured browser i'm aware of and because only it has the extensions i depend on :>Mar 24 21:44
SosumiI haven't bothered checking othersMar 24 21:45
Sosumibut I can tell from my own experience that safari is crash proneMar 24 21:45
MinceRit seems to me that webkit is crash-prone regardless of which browser it's used inMar 24 21:45
Sosumiand it didn't get any better with the latest version that apple put on moronicksMar 24 21:46
cubezzzthe web browser has become overly complexMar 24 22:04
MinceRthe web has become overly complexMar 24 22:04
MinceRit's a messMar 24 22:04
cubezzzyes :)Mar 24 22:04
MinceRand it can't decide whether it wants to be a hypertext system or a remote GUIMar 24 22:04
cubezzzthere's lynxMar 24 22:05
cubezzzI just wish web pages were more lynx friendlyMar 24 22:05
cubezzzI'm not even sure if blogger works well with itMar 24 22:05
MinceRmy eyes don't like lynx that muchMar 24 22:06
MinceRand even links2 -g can't display animated gifsMar 24 22:06
cubezzzok, well that's a plus :)Mar 24 22:06
MinceRnot for meMar 24 22:07
cubezzzfirefox has one major design flawMar 24 22:07
cubezzzover time it eats all the memory in a given systemMar 24 22:08
cubezzzit shouldn't do thatMar 24 22:08
MinceRi'm not sure if there's any web browser that supports CSS and javascript that doesn't do thatMar 24 22:08
cubezzzmaybe there's a way to adjust thatMar 24 22:08
cubezzzjust set it up so it only eats 50% or somethingMar 24 22:09
MinceRyou could try using ulimitMar 24 22:09
cubezzzin mainframe-land they don't even bother with a video consoleMar 24 22:10
cubezzzeverything is designed to maximize IOMar 24 22:10
cubezzzI use dillo when I'm on a low-memory system for *nixMar 24 22:11
cubezzzalso when firefox uses 100% cpu (which is a lot) that's a major painMar 24 22:13
MinceRindeedMar 24 22:13
MinceRdillo won't play animated gif eitherMar 24 22:14
MinceRalso, neither of those display any indication of whether an image is animatedMar 24 22:15

DaemonFCI ordered one of those MyDP to HDMI adapters that also charges your phone.Mar 24 23:34
DaemonFCI'm going to hook the phone up to the TV and just use Android. I think I can cut Comcast without getting rid of anything I really use that often.Mar 24 23:35
MinceRyou can do that even on a PC, via tethering :>Mar 24 23:37
DaemonFCSprint charges extra for that.Mar 24 23:37
DaemonFC$30 a month for 4 GB Mar 24 23:37
MinceRthat sucksMar 24 23:38
DaemonFCI get unlimited mobile data though.Mar 24 23:38
MinceRdo they limit the protocols you get unlimited mobile data on?Mar 24 23:38
DaemonFCThere are some apps that can let you use the web over your mobile data, but they require you to install Windows software.Mar 24 23:39
MinceRhungarian mobile operators are playing around with that bullshitMar 24 23:39
DaemonFCMinceR: They don't seem to limit anything on the phone.Mar 24 23:39
MinceRicMar 24 23:39
DaemonFCI even use uTorrent on my phone to get books and such.Mar 24 23:39
MinceRi'll have to ask them about https and VPNMar 24 23:39
DaemonFCI just want rid of Comcast.Mar 24 23:42
DaemonFCThey're charging me over $700 a year and I don't really do anything that my phone can't do.Mar 24 23:42
DaemonFCThere are even good IRC programs for Android, and if I can hook the phone up to my 42" TV and use my bluetooth keyboard, well, that's good enough.Mar 24 23:42
MinceRor you could run debian in a chroot and run irssi :>Mar 24 23:43
DaemonFCI could.Mar 24 23:43
DaemonFCGNUroot can install Fedora as well.Mar 24 23:43
DaemonFC:)Mar 24 23:43
DaemonFCThe phones have just gotten so good lately, that I find it hard to justify paying a second internet bill through Comcast.Mar 24 23:44
DaemonFCIncreasingly, it seems like I'm paying $62.50 a month for no reason.Mar 24 23:45
DaemonFCThe only thing that really bugs me is that Sprint won't tell me when my LG G2 will get Android 4.4.2Mar 24 23:46
DaemonFCI have 4.2.2 right now, and AT&T and T-Mobile have both already upgraded the G2's for their users.Mar 24 23:47
DaemonFCSprint is kind of the bargain basement carrier though, here in the US.Mar 24 23:47
DaemonFCYou get unlimited everything for $80 a month.Mar 24 23:47
DaemonFCAT&T starts out at $110 a month and you only get 1 GB of data with that. pfft :PMar 24 23:48
DaemonFCSprint's data network can be flaky sometimes, depending on where you are, but I get fast 4G LTE at my house.Mar 24 23:48
DaemonFCMinceR: One thing that pisses me off is that I'm going to have to drive to Fort Wayne to return my Comcast internet gateway.Mar 24 23:49
DaemonFCThey "say" they'll send you a return box, but people who use that tend to have Comcast say they never got the equipment back, and sue them for $500.Mar 24 23:49
DaemonFCSo you really need to go to their office and get a return receipt. That way, if they try claiming they never got it back, you can show the judge the receipt they gave you.Mar 24 23:50
cubezzzcan't you just buy your own DSL modem or whatever?Mar 24 23:52
cubezzzbetter than renting foreverMar 24 23:52
DaemonFCCable modem? Yes, but Comcast has ways of fucking with you if you do that.Mar 24 23:52
DaemonFCThey'll either ring your phone off the hook trying to convince you to go back to renting one of their modems, or they'll sneak the $8 a month fee back onto your bill after a few months.Mar 24 23:53
DaemonFCIf you have unlimited time to spend calling Comcast to get them to reverse those fees, then you save money.Mar 24 23:54
*DaemonFC is listening to Crazy Train by Ozzy Osbourne on Blizzard Of Ozz (Expanded Edition) [Amarok]Mar 24 23:54
DaemonFCMinceR: The only thing that really annoys me about Sprint's data network is that they like to redirect NXDOMAIN to a search page full of ads.Mar 24 23:55
DaemonFCYou can get around that by clicking on the google suggestion instead of the "Go" button in Firefox. :)Mar 24 23:56
MinceRcan't you just use another DNS server?Mar 24 23:57
DaemonFCMaybe. I've never really bothered.Mar 24 23:58
MinceRapparently it needs root thoughMar 25 00:00
MinceR(or you could use Tor, but it would be slower)Mar 25 00:00
DaemonFCOrbot?Mar 25 00:00
DaemonFCYeah.Mar 25 00:00
MinceRindeed.Mar 25 00:00
DaemonFCTor is really slow, and my phone probably has government backdoors anyway.Mar 25 00:00
DaemonFCBut then again, my PC probably does too.Mar 25 00:01
DaemonFCAnd they're definitely monitoring all traffic over Comcast.Mar 25 00:01
MinceRgnMar 25 00:02
DaemonFCI just got an Amazon.com Visa. :PMar 25 00:03
DaemonFCI guess I might as well use it for gas and at restaurants.Mar 25 00:03
DaemonFCThose categories get another half a point in rewards over my current credit card. :)Mar 25 00:04
DaemonFCHmm... I decided to cancel and get a MyDP to VGA converter instead.Mar 25 00:32
DaemonFCThat way, I know it'll work.Mar 25 00:33
DaemonFCI just remembered what happened when I tried using my TV as my computer monitor.Mar 25 00:33
DaemonFCIt popped up this big thing that said "NOT SUPPORT" until I tried using VGA.Mar 25 00:33
DaemonFCIt's kind of a cheap TV.Mar 25 00:33
DaemonFCI suppose I could use the VGA cable with this computer monitor as wellMar 25 00:33

schestowitzThanks for the news but you should try to be less of a smart ass, Jan.  Our problem is not each other, it's Microsoft, Intel, and my government doing the dirty work of spying and cointel for a plutonomy.  I will continue to warn people about that.  Your continued, personal antagonism makes me think bad things about the company you represent despite massive effort by that company, like the coreboot running on the gluglug x60 I'm using Mar 25 16:23
schestowitzto write this.  Stupid infighting is one of those things Microsoft enjoys when they inject themselves into other people's lives.  Mar 25 16:23
schestowitzI'm much more confident in the FSF's intentions than I am in Red Hat's, Dr. Garrett's or yours.  I'm certain that uefi was designed to thwart gnu/linux and betray users and that no one should use it.  Garrett has always acted with professionalism when confronted with this criticism.  I'm happy that his efforts have been recognized and rewarded.  The stated intentions are correct and I respect that even though I think his obvious Mar 25 16:23

DaemonFCI just uninstalled Clean Master, because it seems to be suffering from a variation on Jamie's Law of Software Envelopment.Mar 26 01:49
DaemonFCThe original Law says that "Every application expands until it can read mail. Those that can't are replaced by those that do.".Mar 26 01:49
DaemonFCWhat seems to be happening on Android, is something that I'll call "Ryan's Law of Scareware Proliferation".Mar 26 01:49
DaemonFC"Every free app expands until it pretends to scan for malware."Mar 26 01:49
DaemonFCI say "pretends" because malware on Android is exceedingly rare. It's so rare that one of Google's developers even said that if you peddle antivirus software on Android, you should be ashamed of yourself.Mar 26 01:49
DaemonFCIn the case of Clean Master, its original purpose was to free up space on your device by deleting junk files, old APKs, offering to remove space hogging files and apps you never use, etc. It eventually grew to scan every app, wasting your phone's battery and resources like Windows users have to do, to scan completely harmless files from Google Play for malware that basically doesn't exist.Mar 26 01:49

schestowitzIt's more of the same, Cheery, and it advances Microsoft's ability to keep people divided and helpless in the ways I mentioned above. Microsoft has issued such look but touch code before but the false sense of freedom it gives people is worse than useless. Governments around the world continue to use Windows because Microsoft has given them a copy of source code that no one can compile or share. Without all four software freedoms and Mar 26 17:11
schestowitzcommunity cooperation, no one can really know what their computer does or claim they own it. Without all four software freedoms, I would say software does not deserve copyright protection but Microsoft will say it does because they might one day give you a useless copy and that their ill gotten money advanced the state of the art. Bill Gates has been saying the same thing since 1976.Mar 26 17:11
schestowitzDecades of legal problems have come from Gates' dishonest promise. Commercial use of BSD was kept under a cloud through the 90s by AT&T's obnoxious lawsuit. GNU/Linux users have been threatened for the last decade by Microsoft's obnoxious SCO lawsuits over the farcical remains of the BSD lawsuit. SCO even had the nerve to mail people bills for running simply gnu/linux. No sooner than the SCO case ran into difficulties, Microsoft Mar 26 17:11
schestowitzlaunched a series of software patent lawsuits which has branched into a massive attack on Android. These lawsuits wasted untold millions of dollars in court, made ordinary people and businesses afraid to use free software and continue to be a drain. Not only can't you enjoy your software freedom in peace, the threat has significantly warped the world market for software and computers.Mar 26 17:11
schestowitzThe false promise of utility in exchange for money and blind trust has never been as well busted as it is today thanks to Edward Snowden. Private business and governments now know that the price of non free software is a complete lack of privacy that will be used by US oligarchs against them.Mar 26 17:11

DaemonFCI was right when I said that I thought they injured him. They took him to the hospital to get checked out, but they think it's a bruise.Mar 27 02:26

DaemonFCOn the NES, three spells do nothing and waste a turn, one spell actually helps your enemy, and one level two spell works like the level 3 version should, meaning that there's no reason to buy the level 3 version of it at all. On Android, they all work as intended.Mar 27 10:56

DaemonFCPosted on Facebook:Mar 27 13:07
DaemonFCI'm sick of this. I know several people who are working ~35 hours a week and are too poor to make $11,600 a year and buy into Obamacare, and can't get Medicaid because of that piece of shit (Mike Pence) in the governor's office.Mar 27 13:07
DaemonFCFirst of all, it shouldn't even be legal to pay them that little, and second of all, I want to know who voted for the piece of shit and what you have to say for yourself.Mar 27 13:07
DaemonFCThe "takers" are the business owners that basically make people work for free and depend on food stamps, medicaid, health insurance subsidies, public housing, and the negative income tax (EITC). If you run a business and do this, you should be ashamed of yourself and you should be behind bars!Mar 27 13:07
DaemonFCThe Christians and big polluters (Koch Industries, for example) are angry with Mr. Tyson for discussing the facts of climate change, evolution, and the universe. He really laid into Catholicism for basically plunging us into the dark ages for 500 years with their Inquisition. You know Mr. Tyson is living right when the Republicans that were screaming that Phil Robertson (the stupid redneck) has freedom of speech are now screaming that Cosmos Mar 27 13:16
DaemonFCshould be taken off the air because Tyson is discussing some truths that they'd rather not have discussed.Mar 27 13:16
DaemonFCI think it's sad that politicians like Mike Pence are sending kids to private schools that teach them that plesiosaurs were detected on the radar screens of Japanese submarines (WTF?) and that the Earth is 5,000 years old, and Neil Tyson has to go over remedial biology lessons on Cosmos on television. School rots your brain. Turn on the television!Mar 27 13:17

DaemonFCschestowitz: Sprint tried to bait me with a free Galaxy Tab 3. The Sprint version is better than the retail version (faster processor and more RAM).Mar 27 14:02
DaemonFCI declined because they want to sell you a separate data plan for the tablet, and there is no unlimited data for tablets.Mar 27 14:02
DaemonFC$79.99 gets you 12 GB of data per month. Yikes.Mar 27 14:02
DaemonFCInterestingly enough, you can get 25 MB of data for $5, and walk away with a $120 tablet billed as $5 a month for the data plan.Mar 27 14:03
DaemonFCIf you only use it over wifi and never turn on the mobile data, you can end up on the winning side of this deal.Mar 27 14:03
DaemonFCI'm sure that if you mod your phone you could enable unlimited free tethering and hook that tablet up over that.Mar 27 14:05
DaemonFCOf course, carriers are catching on to this and sending people a tethering and data bill as soon as they catch you.Mar 27 14:05
DaemonFCLike most ISPs, people who actually take them up on their "unlimited" offer find out that there actually is a limit.Mar 27 14:06
DaemonFC"unlimited" is ISP speak for "We won't tell you what the limit is until you hit it and we shut down your account and bill you an early termination fee.".Mar 27 14:06
DaemonFCStraight Talk is even worse.Mar 27 14:07
DaemonFCUnlimited means that after 2.5 GB, they just cripple your data speed for the rest of the month so your phone is unusable.Mar 27 14:07

schestowitzThere is an ugly attempt to distract from good news at Mozilla, where a longtime arch enemy of Microsoft (since Netscape days) became a leader. Personal views on truly divisive topic are used. This is irrelevant to his job, even if I don't agree with him. This is more of that Gates-funded Guardian (and other Microsoft-friendly papers) provoking against Microsoft rivals, even where there is clearly huge hypocrisy. There's a long thread Mar 27 15:26

schestowitzWindows computers are always at risk. Thanks to Snowden, we have proof that Microsoft cooperated with "security" agencies to backdoor Windows and make it easy to break.

schestowitzThere is a real threat. One real difference that never seems to be mentioned in the scare articles is that Microsoft might stop authenticating XP. That means organizations won't be able to do the usual wipe and reload repairs when Windows does what it usually does.Mar 27 18:54

schestowitzwhat do walmart and amazon sell that you can't get from someone off ebay or at some small business/shop?Mar 28 22:44
DaemonFCWell, whenever I am deciding where to shop, I think "Which one would I rather work for if I had to make a choice."Mar 28 22:45
DaemonFCAmazon would win out vs. Walmart, because they start out around $10.50 and with health insurance.Mar 28 22:45
DaemonFCWalmart starts out at $8 an no health insurance.Mar 28 22:45
MinceRdo "local mom and pop store"s even have what one wants? :>Mar 28 22:46
DaemonFCWell, MinceR, there's not many local shops around here.Mar 28 22:46
DaemonFCThere's some furniture stores that are locally owned.Mar 28 22:46
DaemonFCA coffee shop.Mar 28 22:46
DaemonFCSome barber shops.Mar 28 22:46
DaemonFCWhen I do shop at Walmart, it's a very specific shopping list based on what goes on sale in Fort Wayne.Mar 28 22:47
DaemonFCThe manager at the Walmart here decided that even though Fort Wayne is 30 miles away, that we get their newspapers, which makes them "competition".Mar 28 22:47
DaemonFCSo, I can shape my grocery list based on sales at other stores in Fort Wayne, and then make Walmart give me their prices.Mar 28 22:48
DaemonFCI can eat pretty well and keep my grocery bill down 30-40%, depending on what's in those advertisements.Mar 28 22:48
DaemonFCI'm also a member of four grocery rebate programs that run on my Android phone, and a couple of e-coupon programs, and I have rewards credit cards.Mar 28 22:49
DaemonFCBasically, on my budget, you have to throw everything in the book at them. :)Mar 28 22:49

DaemonFCThere's a farm store that runs sales on motor oil and cat food sometimes.Mar 28 22:52
MinceRdoes drinking tea make you a turrist now?Mar 28 22:52
DaemonFCOf course, I shop those sales at Walmart.Mar 28 22:52
DaemonFCI got a bunch of Shell motor oil for my car the other day for $1.99 a quart.Mar 28 22:52
DaemonFCI do my own oil changes when the weather permits.Mar 28 22:53
DaemonFCMinceR: Apparently, some cops in Kansas saw this guy in a hydroponics store back in 2011, and made a note of it.Mar 28 22:53
DaemonFCThen they kept rummaging through his garbage.Mar 28 22:53
MinceRtea is not hydroponics thoughMar 28 22:54
DaemonFCHe drinks loose leaf tea, and so they tested some of it out. The test kits are unreliable and told them that the tea was marijuana.Mar 28 22:54

DaemonFCMinceR: Anything that you set out as garbage is public property, according to the Supreme Court.Mar 28 22:54
DaemonFCSo, the police don't need a warrant, and it is very difficult for a store to stop dumpster divers.Mar 28 22:55
DaemonFCWhen we had a Marsh supermarket, I got yelled at a few times by their managers for swiping expired canned goods and such.Mar 28 22:55
DaemonFCThey finally decided to leave me alone after the police complained that they didn't want to keep coming out over a minor infraction (trespassing).Mar 28 22:56
DaemonFCI never got fined or anything.Mar 28 22:56
DaemonFCThey did ask me to leave the property a couple of times, but I kept coming back.Mar 28 22:56
DaemonFCThat supermarket finally failed during the worst part of the recession. They put everything on sale for half price.Mar 28 22:57
DaemonFCI got $3,000 out of my bank account and ended up filling several shopping carts.Mar 28 22:57
DaemonFCI chained them all together with those child seat belts and pulled them through the store. It was awesome.Mar 28 22:58
DaemonFCI don't know why my internet connection is still working.Mar 28 22:59
DaemonFCThey told me it would be disconnected yesterday.Mar 28 22:59
DaemonFCI have decided that I'm just going to use Android on my phone. I got this thing that reroutes the display to my television.Mar 28 23:00
DaemonFCSprint says that my data plan is unlimited. They reserve the right to terminate your account for any reason though. But, the contract says that if they activate that provision, then they have to let you out of your contract without any early termination fees.Mar 28 23:01
DaemonFC:)Mar 28 23:01
DaemonFCSo, it's either unlimited, or they have to let me out of my contract and unlock my phone.Mar 28 23:01
DaemonFCThen I can just take it to Straight Talk.Mar 28 23:01
DaemonFCThey don't really have any incentive to do that. It's an expensive phone and they're making money off heavy users too.Mar 28 23:04
DaemonFCThey just don't like us because they don't make the profit margin that they would like.Mar 28 23:04

DaemonFCWell, time to go on a downloading spree.Mar 29 02:47
DaemonFC St. Leigh of the Captchas says:Mar 29 03:50
DaemonFCSo what do you think of the new smartphones and tablets promised by Silent Circle? Mar 29 03:50
DaemonFC J. R. Bob Dobbs (formerly ZOMG Pink Ponies) says:Mar 29 03:50
DaemonFCWell, I do love Android, even though the way it is provided by companies makes it partially proprietary and potentially backdoored by the NSA, as Samsung was found to be doing with libsamsung-ipc, by the developers of Replicant. Replicant is a fully Free (as in Freedom) and open rebuild of Android.Mar 29 03:50
DaemonFCUnfortunately, while these phones have an excellent hardware platform as well, they do not document parts of the platform, such as the accelerated graphics processor, the 3G/4G modems, the wifi chipset, and sometimes the camera, so a Fully Free operating system might experience partial functionality loss when operating on these phones. (Although some work fine, depending on the hardware platform, how much of the driver is proprietary, and whetherMar 29 03:50
DaemonFCor not the Replicant or Linux kernel developers have the resources to properly reimplement a freedom-respecting driver.).Mar 29 03:50
DaemonFCSo in some ways, Android is as bad as Apple, but in many ways, it respects your freedom more, because you choose where you want to get your software (free market vs. Apple's monopoly and price fixing), an the fact that more of the components of Android are fully free and under a good license.Mar 29 03:50
DaemonFCSo, that brings me to Silent Circle. They have non-Free (proprietary) drivers, because they're required for certain features of the phone to work. That means you're in danger of a backdoor being put into the driver, and nobody can fix it or guarantee your privacy. Not even the developers of Silent Circle's variant of Android.Mar 29 03:50
DaemonFCThe second problem is that while most Android packages will work, some won't. Some require Google Play Services, and many Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) are being implemented there, so that Google can backport some modern features to your phone, even if your phone OEM or carrier are bad about doing updates. This is part of the reason why most Android software will work, for users still as far back as Gingerbread (Android 2.3). Since Mar 29 03:50
DaemonFCSilent Circle's operating system is a variant, it may not have Google Play Services. Even if it does, that's a proprietary component that may be bugged or backdoored. So if Silent Circle doesn't include it, some apps won't work, and if they do, then it's another potential privacy concern.Mar 29 03:50
DaemonFCFinally, Silent Circle's software is all non-Free (proprietary), so while they may vouch for it, all you have is their word. They could be bugging and backdooring their own software, and sharing it with intelligence agencies. If they're doing this (and it's impossible to prove they don't), then the Silent Circle phone is really an NSA honeypot designed to lure users expecting privacy because they have sensitive information that they want to keep Mar 29 03:51
DaemonFCsafe from GCHQ, the NSA, or other agencies.Mar 29 03:51
DaemonFCSo, I do not trust them. I don't think there's any reason to trust them. The federal government might be able to use such a phone themselves and guarantee the security of the software, because they have the power to compel the company to share the source code with them like Microsoft does. They can't fix it, because "Shared Source" programs don't allow that, but they can audit it for problems. They can either do this by law, or by saying "We won'Mar 29 03:51
DaemonFCt give you an expensive government contract if you don't.". You can't do that.Mar 29 03:51
DaemonFCAlso, not exactly related to Android.... Microsoft "shares" their source with foreign governments as well, which means that they can find and expolit vulnerabilities in Microsoft software such as Windows and Internet Explorer. Russia even has the source code to Microsoft software. Programs like this put this valuable (to bad guys) code in the hands of corrupt officials which sell it to criminals, which produce malware as well.Mar 29 03:51
DaemonFCMicrosoft and Apple's proprietary software, therefore, has all of the negatives of open source code, being primarily that all the bad guys and spooks have it, but it also has a drawback that open source code does not.Mar 29 03:51
DaemonFCGood guys can look at open source code and fix it. This is never possible with proprietary software. Although some independent security researchers can find problems to exploit with proprietary software, and report them publicly, or to the company, they can't fix it. They can only document how to reproduce the problem. So, you're caught with your pants down unless and until Microsoft or Apple fixes the bug, if they ever do.Mar 29 03:51
DaemonFCApple left a critical security flaw open in iTunes, which was public knowledge, for over 3 years before they fixed it. GCHQ and the German federal governments were using it to take over Windows and Mac PCs, and so were criminals.Mar 29 03:51
DaemonFCMicrosoft and Apple products simply are not designed to be secure, which makes any criticism by them or their media partners of Android non-credible and to be approached with an extreme level of skepticism. Mar 29 03:51

schestowitzMicrosoft/big publishers "outsmarted Linux" by making it so they could harvest and exploit everything free software was organizing. Using bogus copyright laws, they censor Google's excellent search results and hosting. Using the U SAP AT RIOT act, they can freely spy on everyone's search, email and private conversations. They also directly exploited free software to set up Facebook, which is truly a dystopian horror story. Now they Mar 29 06:58

MinceRyou can do that even on a PC, via tethering :>Mar 24 23:36
DaemonFCSprint charges extra for that.Mar 24 23:37
DaemonFC$30 a month for 4 GB Mar 24 23:37
MinceRthat sucksMar 24 23:37
DaemonFCI get unlimited mobile data though.Mar 24 23:37
MinceRdo they limit the protocols you get unlimited mobile data on?Mar 24 23:38
DaemonFCThere are some apps that can let you use the web over your mobile data, but they require you to install Windows software.Mar 24 23:38
MinceRhungarian mobile operators are playing around with that bullshitMar 24 23:38
DaemonFCMinceR: They don't seem to limit anything on the phone.Mar 24 23:38
MinceRicMar 24 23:38
DaemonFCI even use uTorrent on my phone to get books and such.Mar 24 23:38
MinceRi'll have to ask them about https and VPNMar 24 23:38
DaemonFCI just want rid of Comcast.Mar 24 23:41
DaemonFCThey're charging me over $700 a year and I don't really do anything that my phone can't do.Mar 24 23:41
DaemonFCThere are even good IRC programs for Android, and if I can hook the phone up to my 42" TV and use my bluetooth keyboard, well, that's good enough.Mar 24 23:42
MinceRor you could run debian in a chroot and run irssi :>Mar 24 23:42
DaemonFCI could.Mar 24 23:42
DaemonFCGNUroot can install Fedora as well.Mar 24 23:43
DaemonFC:)Mar 24 23:43
DaemonFCThe phones have just gotten so good lately, that I find it hard to justify paying a second internet bill through Comcast.Mar 24 23:43
DaemonFCIncreasingly, it seems like I'm paying $62.50 a month for no reason.Mar 24 23:44
DaemonFCThe only thing that really bugs me is that Sprint won't tell me when my LG G2 will get Android 4.4.2Mar 24 23:46
DaemonFCI have 4.2.2 right now, and AT&T and T-Mobile have both already upgraded the G2's for their users.Mar 24 23:46
DaemonFCSprint is kind of the bargain basement carrier though, here in the US.Mar 24 23:46
DaemonFCYou get unlimited everything for $80 a month.Mar 24 23:47
DaemonFCAT&T starts out at $110 a month and you only get 1 GB of data with that. pfft :PMar 24 23:47
DaemonFCSprint's data network can be flaky sometimes, depending on where you are, but I get fast 4G LTE at my house.Mar 24 23:48
DaemonFCMinceR: One thing that pisses me off is that I'm going to have to drive to Fort Wayne to return my Comcast internet gateway.Mar 24 23:48
DaemonFCThey "say" they'll send you a return box, but people who use that tend to have Comcast say they never got the equipment back, and sue them for $500.Mar 24 23:48
DaemonFCSo you really need to go to their office and get a return receipt. That way, if they try claiming they never got it back, you can show the judge the receipt they gave you.Mar 24 23:49
cubezzzcan't you just buy your own DSL modem or whatever?Mar 24 23:51
cubezzzbetter than renting foreverMar 24 23:51
DaemonFCCable modem? Yes, but Comcast has ways of fucking with you if you do that.Mar 24 23:52
DaemonFCThey'll either ring your phone off the hook trying to convince you to go back to renting one of their modems, or they'll sneak the $8 a month fee back onto your bill after a few months.Mar 24 23:52
DaemonFCIf you have unlimited time to spend calling Comcast to get them to reverse those fees, then you save money.Mar 24 23:53
*DaemonFC is listening to Crazy Train by Ozzy Osbourne on Blizzard Of Ozz (Expanded Edition) [Amarok]Mar 24 23:54
DaemonFCMinceR: The only thing that really annoys me about Sprint's data network is that they like to redirect NXDOMAIN to a search page full of ads.Mar 24 23:55
DaemonFCYou can get around that by clicking on the google suggestion instead of the "Go" button in Firefox. :)Mar 24 23:55
MinceRcan't you just use another DNS server?Mar 24 23:56
DaemonFCMaybe. I've never really bothered.Mar 24 23:57
MinceRapparently it needs root thoughMar 24 23:59
MinceR(or you could use Tor, but it would be slower)Mar 24 23:59
DaemonFCOrbot?Mar 24 23:59
DaemonFCYeah.Mar 24 23:59
MinceRindeed.Mar 24 23:59
DaemonFCTor is really slow, and my phone probably has government backdoors anyway.Mar 25 00:00
DaemonFCBut then again, my PC probably does too.Mar 25 00:00
DaemonFCAnd they're definitely monitoring all traffic over Comcast.Mar 25 00:00
MinceRgnMar 25 00:02
DaemonFCI just got an Amazon.com Visa. :PMar 25 00:02
DaemonFCI guess I might as well use it for gas and at restaurants.Mar 25 00:03
DaemonFCThose categories get another half a point in rewards over my current credit card. :)Mar 25 00:03
DaemonFCHmm... I decided to cancel and get a MyDP to VGA converter instead.Mar 25 00:32
DaemonFCThat way, I know it'll work.Mar 25 00:32
DaemonFCI just remembered what happened when I tried using my TV as my computer monitor.Mar 25 00:32
DaemonFCIt popped up this big thing that said "NOT SUPPORT" until I tried using VGA.Mar 25 00:32
DaemonFCIt's kind of a cheap TV.Mar 25 00:32
DaemonFCI suppose I could use the VGA cable with this computer monitor as wellMar 25 00:33

schestowitzThanks for the news but you should try to be less of a smart ass, Jan.  Our problem is not each other, it's Microsoft, Intel, and my government doing the dirty work of spying and cointel for a plutonomy.  I will continue to warn people about that.  Your continued, personal antagonism makes me think bad things about the company you represent despite massive effort by that company, like the coreboot running on the gluglug x60 I'm using Mar 25 16:22
schestowitzto write this.  Stupid infighting is one of those things Microsoft enjoys when they inject themselves into other people's lives.  Mar 25 16:22
schestowitzI'm much more confident in the FSF's intentions than I am in Red Hat's, Dr. Garrett's or yours.  I'm certain that uefi was designed to thwart gnu/linux and betray users and that no one should use it.  Garrett has always acted with professionalism when confronted with this criticism.  I'm happy that his efforts have been recognized and rewarded.  The stated intentions are correct and I respect that even though I think his obvious Mar 25 16:23

DaemonFCI just uninstalled Clean Master, because it seems to be suffering from a variation on Jamie's Law of Software Envelopment.Mar 26 01:48
DaemonFCThe original Law says that "Every application expands until it can read mail. Those that can't are replaced by those that do.".Mar 26 01:48
DaemonFCWhat seems to be happening on Android, is something that I'll call "Ryan's Law of Scareware Proliferation".Mar 26 01:48
DaemonFC"Every free app expands until it pretends to scan for malware."Mar 26 01:48
DaemonFCI say "pretends" because malware on Android is exceedingly rare. It's so rare that one of Google's developers even said that if you peddle antivirus software on Android, you should be ashamed of yourself.Mar 26 01:48
DaemonFCIn the case of Clean Master, its original purpose was to free up space on your device by deleting junk files, old APKs, offering to remove space hogging files and apps you never use, etc. It eventually grew to scan every app, wasting your phone's battery and resources like Windows users have to do, to scan completely harmless files from Google Play for malware that basically doesn't exist.Mar 26 01:48

Without all four software freedoms, I would say software does not deserve copyright protection but Microsoft will say it does because they might one day give you a useless copy and that their ill gotten money advanced the state of the art. Bill Gates has been saying the same thing since 1976.Mar 26 17:11

DaemonFCThe "takers" are the business owners that basically make people work for free and depend on food stamps, medicaid, health insurance subsidies, public housing, and the negative income tax (EITC). If you run a business and do this, you should be ashamed of yourself and you should be behind bars!Mar 27 13:07
DaemonFCThe Christians and big polluters (Koch Industries, for example) are angry with Mr. Tyson for discussing the facts of climate change, evolution, and the universe.

DaemonFC$79.99 gets you 12 GB of data per month. Yikes.Mar 27 14:02
DaemonFCInterestingly enough, you can get 25 MB of data for $5, and walk away with a $120 tablet billed as $5 a month for the data plan.Mar 27 14:03
DaemonFCIf you only use it over wifi and never turn on the mobile data, you can end up on the winning side of this deal.Mar 27 14:03
DaemonFCI'm sure that if you mod your phone you could enable unlimited free tethering and hook that tablet up over that.Mar 27 14:05
DaemonFCOf course, carriers are catching on to this and sending people a tethering and data bill as soon as they catch you.Mar 27 14:05
DaemonFCLike most ISPs, people who actually take them up on their "unlimited" offer find out that there actually is a limit.Mar 27 14:06

schestowitzThere is an ugly attempt to distract from good news at Mozilla, where a longtime arch enemy of Microsoft (since Netscape days) became a leader. Personal views on truly divisive topic are used. This is irrelevant to his job, even if I don't agree with him. This is more of that Gates-funded Guardian (and other Microsoft-friendly papers) provoking against Microsoft rivals, even where there is clearly huge hypocrisy. There's a long thread Mar 27 15:26

DaemonFCObviously, everything he gets is a special secured version. His Cadillac is really more like an armored personnel carrier with a hood ornament. I doubt that Apple is capable of making the phone equivalent to that. They can't even make a modern file system for Mac OS. They ignored a critical public security vulnerability in iTunes that allowed a remote attacker to take over the computer for three years. Although, I understand that this was becauseMar 27 22:49
DaemonFCthe UK government GCHQ was using that to install malware onto Macs.Mar 27 22:49
DaemonFCWhen they closed it, they no doubt opened another hole elsewhere. Security patches for proprietary software like Windows and Mac OS are basically voodoo. A total pea and shell game.Mar 27 22:49

-TechrightsBot-tr/#techrights-@schestowitz@joindiaspora.com: There is an ugly attempt to distract from good news at Mozilla, where a longtime arch enemy of Microsoft (since Netscape days) became a leader. Personal views on truly divisive topic are used. This is irrelevant to his job, even if I don't agree with him. This is more of that Gates-funded Guardian (and other Microsoft-friendly papers) provoking against Microsoft rivals, even where there is clearly huge hypocrisy. Mar 28 22:17

schestowitzi hope these people get ostracised by the gay community; their contribution to gay people's equality is like the contribution of Islamist who threaten to fire/behead people for insulting Islam. They're doing the Dawah or the Jihad of the gay community,Mar 28 22:20
schestowitz and the outcome is probably LESS rights for the purpose they purport to be serving.Mar 28 22:21
schestowitzpeople who have opposed marriage between people of the same gender are having a day field right now, showing how aggressive their opponent are getting against a man who made a monetary contribution (quite small). Similarly, 'pro-lifers' (against abortion) look worse when they attack abortion clinics((taking away lives) like the loons from one Church picket funerals.Mar 28 22:27

DaemonFCWell, whenever I am deciding where to shop, I think "Which one would I rather work for if I had to make a choice."Mar 28 22:45
DaemonFCAmazon would win out vs. Walmart, because they start out around $10.50 and with health insurance.Mar 28 22:45
DaemonFCWalmart starts out at $8 an no health insurance.Mar 28 22:45
MinceRdo "local mom and pop store"s even have what one wants? :>Mar 28 22:45
DaemonFCWell, MinceR, there's not many local shops around here.Mar 28 22:46
DaemonFCThere's some furniture stores that are locally owned.Mar 28 22:46
DaemonFCA coffee shop.Mar 28 22:46
DaemonFCSome barber shops.Mar 28 22:46
DaemonFCWhen I do shop at Walmart, it's a very specific shopping list based on what goes on sale in Fort Wayne.Mar 28 22:47
DaemonFCThe manager at the Walmart here decided that even though Fort Wayne is 30 miles away, that we get their newspapers, which makes them "competition".Mar 28 22:47
DaemonFCSo, I can shape my grocery list based on sales at other stores in Fort Wayne, and then make Walmart give me their prices.Mar 28 22:47
DaemonFCI can eat pretty well and keep my grocery bill down 30-40%, depending on what's in those advertisements.Mar 28 22:48
DaemonFCI'm also a member of four grocery rebate programs that run on my Android phone, and a couple of e-coupon programs, and I have rewards credit cards.Mar 28 22:49
DaemonFCBasically, on my budget, you have to throw everything in the book at them. :)Mar 28 22:49
DaemonFCOf course, now that they know I drink tea, I might get raided by the SWAT team.Mar 28 22:51
DaemonFCB-)Mar 28 22:51
DaemonFC[18:45] <MinceR> do "local mom and pop store"s even have what one wants? :>Mar 28 22:51
DaemonFCThere's a farm store that runs sales on motor oil and cat food sometimes.Mar 28 22:52
MinceRdoes drinking tea make you a turrist now?Mar 28 22:52
DaemonFCOf course, I shop those sales at Walmart.Mar 28 22:52
DaemonFCI got a bunch of Shell motor oil for my car the other day for $1.99 a quart.Mar 28 22:52
DaemonFCI do my own oil changes when the weather permits.Mar 28 22:52
DaemonFCMinceR: Apparently, some cops in Kansas saw this guy in a hydroponics store back in 2011, and made a note of it.Mar 28 22:53
DaemonFCThen they kept rummaging through his garbage.Mar 28 22:53
MinceRtea is not hydroponics thoughMar 28 22:54
DaemonFCHe drinks loose leaf tea, and so they tested some of it out. The test kits are unreliable and told them that the tea was marijuana.Mar 28 22:54
DaemonFCSo they raided his house.Mar 28 22:54
MinceRoh.Mar 28 22:54
MinceRlolMar 28 22:54
MinceR'murukur, fuck yeahMar 28 22:54
DaemonFCMinceR: Anything that you set out as garbage is public property, according to the Supreme Court.Mar 28 22:54
DaemonFCSo, the police don't need a warrant, and it is very difficult for a store to stop dumpster divers.Mar 28 22:55
DaemonFCWhen we had a Marsh supermarket, I got yelled at a few times by their managers for swiping expired canned goods and such.Mar 28 22:55
DaemonFCThey finally decided to leave me alone after the police complained that they didn't want to keep coming out over a minor infraction (trespassing).Mar 28 22:55
DaemonFCI never got fined or anything.Mar 28 22:56
DaemonFCThey did ask me to leave the property a couple of times, but I kept coming back.Mar 28 22:56
DaemonFCThat supermarket finally failed during the worst part of the recession. They put everything on sale for half price.Mar 28 22:57
DaemonFCI got $3,000 out of my bank account and ended up filling several shopping carts.Mar 28 22:57
DaemonFCI chained them all together with those child seat belts and pulled them through the store. It was awesome.Mar 28 22:57
DaemonFCI don't know why my internet connection is still working.Mar 28 22:59
DaemonFCThey told me it would be disconnected yesterday.Mar 28 22:59
DaemonFCI have decided that I'm just going to use Android on my phone. I got this thing that reroutes the display to my television.Mar 28 23:00
DaemonFCSprint says that my data plan is unlimited. They reserve the right to terminate your account for any reason though. But, the contract says that if they activate that provision, then they have to let you out of your contract without any early termination fees.Mar 28 23:01
DaemonFC:)Mar 28 23:01
DaemonFCSo, it's either unlimited, or they have to let me out of my contract and unlock my phone.Mar 28 23:01
DaemonFCThen I can just take it to Straight Talk.Mar 28 23:01
DaemonFCThey don't really have any incentive to do that. It's an expensive phone and they're making money off heavy users too.Mar 28 23:04
DaemonFCThey just don't like us because they don't make the profit margin that they would like.Mar 28 23:04

DaemonFCWell, I do love Android, even though the way it is provided by companies makes it partially proprietary and potentially backdoored by the NSA, as Samsung was found to be doing with libsamsung-ipc, by the developers of Replicant. Replicant is a fully Free (as in Freedom) and open rebuild of Android.Mar 29 03:50
DaemonFCUnfortunately, while these phones have an excellent hardware platform as well, they do not document parts of the platform, such as the accelerated graphics processor, the 3G/4G modems, the wifi chipset, and sometimes the camera, so a Fully Free operating system might experience partial functionality loss when operating on these phones. (Although some work fine, depending on the hardware platform, how much of the driver is proprietary, and whetherMar 29 03:50
DaemonFCor not the Replicant or Linux kernel developers have the resources to properly reimplement a freedom-respecting driver.).Mar 29 03:50
DaemonFCSo in some ways, Android is as bad as Apple, but in many ways, it respects your freedom more, because you choose where you want to get your software (free market vs. Apple's monopoly and price fixing), an the fact that more of the components of Android are fully free and under a good license.Mar 29 03:50
DaemonFCSo, that brings me to Silent Circle. They have non-Free (proprietary) drivers, because they're required for certain features of the phone to work. That means you're in danger of a backdoor being put into the driver, and nobody can fix it or guarantee your privacy. Not even the developers of Silent Circle's variant of Android.Mar 29 03:50
DaemonFCThe second problem is that while most Android packages will work, some won't. Some require Google Play Services, and many Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) are being implemented there, so that Google can backport some modern features to your phone, even if your phone OEM or carrier are bad about doing updates. This is part of the reason why most Android software will work, for users still as far back as Gingerbread (Android 2.3). Since Mar 29 03:50
DaemonFCSilent Circle's operating system is a variant, it may not have Google Play Services. Even if it does, that's a proprietary component that may be bugged or backdoored. So if Silent Circle doesn't include it, some apps won't work, and if they do, then it's another potential privacy concern.Mar 29 03:50
DaemonFCFinally, Silent Circle's software is all non-Free (proprietary), so while they may vouch for it, all you have is their word. They could be bugging and backdooring their own software, and sharing it with intelligence agencies. If they're doing this (and it's impossible to prove they don't), then the Silent Circle phone is really an NSA honeypot designed to lure users expecting privacy because they have sensitive information that they want to keep Mar 29 03:50
DaemonFCsafe from GCHQ, the NSA, or other agencies.Mar 29 03:50
DaemonFCSo, I do not trust them. I don't think there's any reason to trust them. The federal government might be able to use such a phone themselves and guarantee the security of the software, because they have the power to compel the company to share the source code with them like Microsoft does. They can't fix it, because "Shared Source" programs don't allow that, but they can audit it for problems. They can either do this by law, or by saying "We won'Mar 29 03:50
DaemonFCt give you an expensive government contract if you don't.". You can't do that.Mar 29 03:50
DaemonFCAlso, not exactly related to Android.... Microsoft "shares" their source with foreign governments as well, which means that they can find and expolit vulnerabilities in Microsoft software such as Windows and Internet Explorer. Russia even has the source code to Microsoft software. Programs like this put this valuable (to bad guys) code in the hands of corrupt officials which sell it to criminals, which produce malware as well.Mar 29 03:50
DaemonFCMicrosoft and Apple's proprietary software, therefore, has all of the negatives of open source code, being primarily that all the bad guys and spooks have it, but it also has a drawback that open source code does not.Mar 29 03:50
DaemonFCGood guys can look at open source code and fix it. This is never possible with proprietary software. Although some independent security researchers can find problems to exploit with proprietary software, and report them publicly, or to the company, they can't fix it. They can only document how to reproduce the problem. So, you're caught with your pants down unless and until Microsoft or Apple fixes the bug, if they ever do.Mar 29 03:51
DaemonFCApple left a critical security flaw open in iTunes, which was public knowledge, for over 3 years before they fixed it. GCHQ and the German federal governments were using it to take over Windows and Mac PCs, and so were criminals.Mar 29 03:51
DaemonFCMicrosoft and Apple products simply are not designed to be secure, which makes any criticism by them or their media partners of Android non-credible and to be approached with an extreme level of skepticism. Mar 29 03:51

schestowitzVery true, and the problem remains the usual suspects. The technical advance is still there, it's just subverted by lawless behavior. Let's not let the bullies win.Mar 29 06:57
schestowitzMicrosoft/big publishers "outsmarted Linux" by making it so they could harvest and exploit everything free software was organizing. Using bogus copyright laws, they censor Google's excellent search results and hosting. Using the U SAP AT RIOT act, they can freely spy on everyone's search, email and private conversations. They also directly exploited free software to set up Facebook, which is truly a dystopian horror story. Now they Mar 29 06:57
schestowitzspin it as if the source of the evil was Google and free software itself.Mar 29 06:58
schestowitzWhat comes next will be an attempt to criminalize free software use. This is what Eric Raymond warned us about almost a decade ago when he was looking at the Halloween Documents. The copyright crowd is already laying the don't trust your neighbors thick onto school kids, and you have reported that DRM will be forced by law.Mar 29 06:58
