Why not just use a VPN?
@Deleted User Yeah you can use tor browser for anything, though some websites will not provide service to tor addresses, like reddit I think doesn't let you create an account, and from what I understand gmail doesn't work either (designed by google to be that way) but most sites will work normally. I don't think there's a need to use TOR to visit any of our stuff. TOR is nice to see onion sites though the only one I bother with is DailyStormer when it goes down which is fairly rare now. Really the only time I think it's necessary to use TOR for a normie site is if you plan to leave a comment on an antifa website. Merely reading antifa websites shouldn't be any issue at all, it's only when they can connect your IP to a hostile action that there could be an issue. For any other site I wouldn't worry and I wouldn't bother
Not that I know of
that's why i'd rather use Tor
@Deleted User it's shit I wouldn't use it. Slow and it's not actually anti censorship or free speech. Mostly used by pedos and drug traffickers
@everyone I need a good site to hire a JR sysadmin from. Not sure where to begin, but I want to get it done ASAP as my boss wants to hire some mulatto he knows who knows fuck all about technology.
Just out of curiosity what are the requirements?
@Deleted User nordvpn is probably the best VPN out there but it obviously comes with a good price tag. If you're going to use a VPN in Windows there are also a number of additional steps you will have to take like disabling teredo and some special Windows DNS stuff
@Havamal at the moment I have no idea because prior to firing the most recent one for not showing up to work I integrated pretty much everything into my role. Would have to talk with my boss about it. Mostly just basic IT background knowledge and I would train whoever was hired to manage the stuff I handle now in addition to my dev stuff.
I could pretty easily train just about anyone as long as they have basic IT knowledge I would just greatly prefer it be someone white so I don't have to deal with extra cultural and societal bullshit
I wish I could find a role like that. Here it is so competitive that you can't find a Jr system admin or security spot.
Forever IT Support 😐
It's basically the same way here. I spent a lot of time with my thumb up my ass while applying for jobs before I landed this job.
@Deleted User I would also be interested in the job description when you have it. You’re in Pennsylvania, right?
Pay would be around 35k-40k to start with healthcare
I think you might have to use Rush as a code
I'm having the most annoying bug with Fedora. 5.37 no irq handler for vector upon resume from suspend, no internet until I reboot. At first I thought adding `noapic` to kernel parameters fixed, then I removed that and it still worked, then just now it started happening again, so I put `noapic` back, and it doesn't fix it this time. It feels like I'm the only one with this problem. I can't imagine having to switch distros over one issue, but not being able to suspend and resume the machine really is a big deal. If anyone @here has any ideas, please let me know.
Ok can someone redbar me on what happens when twitter “locks” you out of your account and you have to enter a phone number to get back in? I have a sock email for twitter but I used my real cell number to get back in, then I went in and deleted my phone number from my twitter acct. I’m wondering if someone can still see/find it?
I assume I violated the rules, and if so, why would verifying a phone number let you back in?
Burner phones are $5 at Home Depot
Maybe that’s my next step
You can get one that has a certain amount of texts/calls. Just have one in your closet, and only use it to verify various accounts
So even if the app is on your main phone you can still just use the verification info off the burner right?
Idk, I've never not used a burner
Thanks, I’m boomer tier tech functional
Would you guys be interested in me writing up a guide on how to properly use a VPN? Would include specific information on Teredo, WebRTC and some weird specific MS Windows DNS stuff that has to be disabled as well as IPV6 for a VPN to properly function. You can't just turn it on have it work seamlessly. @everyone
Would be windows specific and specific to Win10
Yes. If adaptable to Windows 7, also good.
Ok. I'll look into the win7 bits and make 2 guides
Truly man's best friend
So this isn’t an April fools joke?
