As long as it comes with onions I like all of them, greens.

On strokes and keys subject, there are those optional visual keyboards that open up in random sizes and locations, so not two password entries will ever seem identical in terms of mouse movement.
Tails uses something along those lines from login screen and it is available at a click of a button everywhere-else.

My favorite search engines is starpage with scripts off.  It seems so underrated and well hidden in the mozilla ad-ons list that I interpret as trusty-worthy.

I'm beginning to think my occasional failure with ob-gen may be hw/X related.  It seems every little while the menu collapses and only a scrape and reinstall clears the mess up.

It would be interesting to see a list of free webmail services still operating a non-script server.
I only know of one and it is not even longer open to anyone but those recommended from inside.
The rest are all java-lavra-mavra and incorporate scripts from third sites.
Communication without the middle-man had become extremely difficult and a science of its own.
Systemd was only ONE of the middle-men, don't dare think we are anywhere near seeing light.
We are merely beginning to see shadows.

The more we talk about it the more conscious and real it becomes.  The majority will choose the
blue pill and get back to facebook on their brand new UEFI windows 11.
Windows 11 is a covered up dressed up, locked, VM running on Debian-systemd co-production.

In Palemoon and other mozilla derivatives you can add a plugin called noscript (a traffic no-sign with a ghostbusters ghost)

With noscript if you don't see something you want to see you can relax the block to specific sites (permanently or temporarily), but it is amazing how much information you can still get without the script-fluff.

If we were able to tell how and what those scripts are doing what they are doing there wouldn't be noscript

I haven't seen or heard the word malware for years and years.  With cloud based servers life has become harder as you have to allow cloud scripts to let you to see a site.  So the internet has shrunk back to its healthier form of less fluff.

I call it the s/f rario, signal to fluff.  Only I include a level of doubt that not all fluff is innocent, and not all sheep is vegetarian.  I see sheep with sharp front teeth and saliva dripping.

Are you running Jessie?
Which firefox do you have?
Have you upgraded recently?

#7 Re: Hardware & System Configuration » vdev and pulse » 2017-11-20 05:47:45

Interesting note on pulseaudio from debian

pulseaudio (11.1-2) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Since this version, pulseaudio disables autospawn by default on linux
    systems, and replaces that with systemd socket activation. If you are not
    using systemd, then please edit or remove
    to reenable it.

I don't remember exactly but I think we have to choose a location (country) before selecting the mirror. In which country(ies) are these 2 mirrors located?

There are two things that affect your speed of downloading packages, one is mirror's capability to serve files, the other is network distance.  Network distance may not be as relevant to geography as you think.  If you were to get a list of mirrors from different countries/states/territories etc. and write a little script pinging each one 3-4 times (ping -c 4 for example) you get a relative speed of the connection, but not the rate it can upload files to you.  Then run the same some hours later or days and you may get a different picture.  So don't be so concerned.  If you are in SW Australia I wouldn't pick Iceland, or from N. Korea I would not pick Johanesborg, but I have had a mirror within a bicycle's ride away be three times as slow as one three continents away.

Then there are those clueless people using tor and one moment they seem as being in N.Korea the next moment they are in Cambodia.

Those clueless people were shoved without notice in an experimental repository system without notice and without a way to be able to tell.  But they don't worry about speed anyway.

I like how I am clueless but you skipped through the separation of list and forum, of which I am clearly pointing out you are not part of.
I am not even projecting some judgment, I am merely observing this separation.

What is it that you want to write in capitals and you don't?  That I am irritating you for no reason or that you don't want to explain what I am pointing out? 

The messenger can go away, the message AND ITS CONTENT is still there.

You can take developers out of Debian but you can't get the Debian out of developers, I think!
What ever that means to anyone trying to decode it.  It seems you are reading something different and to which I admit to be clueless.

No, it is something that has been tested for more than two months and except for one rare occassion, that was overlooked and affected two people, everything runs fine.  It just so happens that all the important technical discussion takes part on the list and rarely do we common mortals have the privilege of being adequately advised.  So the forum is a true users' community, while the list is a true developers' community.

Like the song says "you got to keep'em separated".

The refracta, miyo, vuudo, developers have been very active in this forum.  I don't know whether GoLinux is an actual developer or does everything else, like running this forum, and tolerating my big mouth.

My article I think is  more informative on the issue than anything I found in the wiki.

Little birdy came by and told me about this menu making pkg called kickshaw
It looks like ob-gen menus but  simpler and more reliable.
What do you do without panel or anything else, having a system autologin to openbox with the obmenu-generator going dead and all you get is a right click that ob-gen is not working.  And none of the shortcuts to other ttys work.
Thank goddess for a power button and the end of the chord!

How often have you opened up a .conf file in linux and there is a comment with a link to search google for examples and information about how to set something up within the .conf file.
I understand that a specific reference may not be there tomorrow so a google search for a phrase "will" be there.  It is like government, it is always there,
I believe that the cleanest, most efficient, and safe version of firefox is that of torproject bundle.  If you wish you can turn scripts on, proxy-off, and use it as any browser, "in an unsafe fashion".  Then you will realize that there are some "features" that don't exist in that firefox.  There is usually a very good reason for turning those off.

Here is a test of uniqueness in fingerprint left by your browser.
Use NoScript turn all scripts off, then take the test again.  EFF has a similar test called panopticlick or something, which is crappy compared to what this guy measures.  Scary, they can tell your screen size, what fonts you are using, your timezone, keymaps. all with a single visit to a web page.  After some data is collected you become very unique.  Then off you go to another page that incorporates some google-tags and ads and ...

Dev1galaxy doesn't seem to have any of this, and the forum works just fine with scripts off.  Try reading an article in NYT or Guardian, and see how many sites are on to you.

#17 Re: Off-topic » Firefox Quantum » 2017-11-18 14:26:06

I use to go through about:config on firefox and run a search for google and chrome and turn everything off

You'd be surprised how much of it has crawled in

#18 Re: Other Issues » UPS, digital power supplies and what jobs use power » 2017-11-18 04:36:25

As most electrical circuits have some thought in increasing efficiency, their loss/wasted energy usually escapes as heat.  So where you see much heat escaping it is not due to severe inefficiency but large amounts of energy going through and some escaping as heat.
So I would presume anything that uses the CPU in extremes for a sustained period is consuming more energy.  The the GPU processor must come second when heavy graphics are being processed.  Then there should be the ram as we are starting to see ram modules with cooling fins.  High speed motors (drives) must consume energy too.

I think people who are into graphic games playing and developing, video editing, GIS systems programmers, must know more about what it takes to melt something.  My puzzle comes from android devices, being able to run 4cores and HD graphics in gaming and have no fans or get so hot, while a similar pc needs 3-4 fans to keep from melting.

Haahaaa.  So someone else is thinking along those lines, I am not alone.

I think I am going to store the last 52esr sourcecode for the dreaded future.

I have yet to visit a site that did not work with palemoon and no youtube problems.
But the world's most popular website is blocked before my pc.

I can see tor people moving their show to palemoon or iceweasel

It seems like Mozilla is adopting an Intel approach to things.  The faster it becomes and the quicker it evolves the less of importance security issues have when they are discovered.  Who is putting money that this thing is not going to become the next big security nightmare for the next 2 years?  I am on smile

Why does it sound scary to me just reading your reviews?

Because I am paranoid, that's why.

OK  move on, there is nothing to see here smile
Mozilla has gotten this odor of stinkin ( a real word in the US dictionary) for years now.
Just follow the money, they always go to those who are after "no good".

#23 Re: Installation » Installing refracted Ascii w OpenBox Eudev no DM » 2017-11-16 23:18:31

Isn't eudev directly replaceable with udev in the other Devuan rep's?
So if one was to remove it and install udev then go back and install eudev, the only one in the repository will install, right?

Did you get a desktop running, is this ram on openbox?

I got 2222 to run well on console as well, it is X I couldn't sufficiently get working.  But it has been over a month.

I started a new thread after installing and solving the X problem I had.
I am ecstatic that my OpenRC ascii is running, thanks to refracta experimental iso.

#25 Re: Other Issues » Missing pkgs from Ascii » 2017-11-16 18:37:41

Thank you, I didn't know about apt-cache policy.  I am using onions and garlic which I am told is pkgmaster.
This is from the note I kept.  When in ascii the dependencies weren't met I went to Debian sid and this is what it pulled

libevent-2.1-6_2.1.8-stable-4_amd64.deb ...
libzstd1_1.3.2+dfsg-1_amd64.deb ...
Unpacking libzstd1 (1.3.2+dfsg-1) ...

Are the 10 100 500 numbers a priority system within the merged repository?

So from the above I deduce the dependency was for a higher version of those libs and showed as unmet in ascii.  ?
I think I may know why, I'll try it again tomorrow.  I think the pkg itself was meant for unstable, and probably the same packaged for debian stable would have the same dependencies as they exist in ascii.

Thanks again.
