It's becoming an obsession. There is no way to get passed sms verification for a fully functional twitter, facebook or Google account. I've been at it for days.
There are thousands of sites that provide sms sending and receiving. I can use them to text someone. When it comes to the big companies though... It doesn't work. Nuts.
So, reddit's r/privacy subreddit blocked my post because I used a new username which came with a weird burn email address and from a VPNed IP address...
this morning is all about irony, I suppose.
@eludom post made me remember I wanted to ask folks here: have you ever got a burner number, a cell that was not tied to you through a credit card or similar? I'm finding it hard to do.
I could go to a store and shell out $100, just for a new phone and the cheapest pre-paid plan, but even then I think they'd force me to provide a credit card as a "precaution". I feel like a criminal just for wanting something that doesn't traces back to me. Any suggestions?
A bit of truth wrapped in layers paranoia. I see these articles all the time and I'm tired.
First, "extremely insecure." Huh? No one broke the encryption here, and theoretically, all apps are safe.
Second, what the hell is a "crawling attack"? Sounds like OSINT to me.
Third, if you're serious about your online privacy, don't use default settings (always check) and never your (real) phone number? Privacy 1:1 people.
Tried x11 forwarding with emacs client and it's very slow.. currently my setup is to work with syncthing and have several independent emacs boxes. TRAMP doesn't work (not sure why, looks like the fancy shell prompt issue, but using sshx didn't solve it).
How do you edit your work with emacs away from home?
Long shot, but is there anyone from #japan here?
it's 6AM.Time to try the old vampire trick, close the sun blocking curtains, blast the AC so it's cold and dark like in a tomb and try to get some more sleep.
I don't like my insomnia but I'm learning to be more creative with it: ranting here to anyone who would listen, worked on another post, and now I'm going to dream of Switzerland (thanks, @kensanata )
Manuel Uberti's #Emacs covers *everything* he needs and therefore, he stops tinkering his configuration:
is there a way to harness the power of Emacs without running Emacs? How do you do it?
Say, for example, I was to create a macro that uses occur in a file, then replaces all instances of that text with another text, and I want this macro to run with chron once a week...
...or, more org centric, say use org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift in org-mode on a file without actually opening it in emacs, etc.
How would you do it?
Helpdesk. Head-desk. It's no coincidence they're so similar. Littering this instance with my tech discoveries.
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
