for the longest time, i did not have a smartphone, each time i got one, my family took it away because we couldn't afford one and i had to share it and i basically never got to use it (i am 19 now)

but i just got my own, but i still do share it because its the only contact we have with our other family, still, id like to somehow have a private sms channel for my partner and internet friends and other interesting folk

first, i tried setting up a work profile with shelter and installing signal, but i couldnt get enabling SMS with signal to work. it doesnt like work profiles ofr some reason

i'd like to be able to have some sms/calls only come through a certain app on my phone so that when someone calls or texts me, only id be able to read that

i am a novice computer user and somewhat know my way around one, but not so much phones they are foreign to me.

i am a dopamine addict and my mind is very disorganized so please forgive me, thanks

could someone please explain to me if my relay is operational & also how to launch the relay?

I have installed the snap successfully but I am not shure if everything is up and running as i get this message under services when retrieving the snap info.

'simple, enabled, inactive'

Does this mean that I haven't launched the relay? How do I launch it and know that it is active? any help is appreciated as this is my first time using snaps, or launching a relay for that matter.

i want to talk with you about how cybernetics and technology is attacking us and our future. So before we start i recommend to read this https://capulcu.blackblogs.org/wp-content/uploads/sites/54/2015/12/BandII-enbooklet.pdf first. I think its the best way to synchronize ourselfes to go in a discussion.

The big question is how we fight against it and how we raise more attention about it.

  1. Don't read sensationalist crap
  2. Cybernetics and Trans-humanism are completely different things.
  • Cybernetics is just a mathematical tool to reason about human / machine interactions in rigorous way.
  • Transhumanism is a crackpot ideology of people that wants to archive eternal life through a technological process (for themselves in their lifetime)
3. AI research actually is a well established field and the theory about handling agents safely is well debated stuff inside computer science departments.

I have a quick question about password managers. Isn't it the equivalent of having they same pass for everything? Or is it genuinely safer?

If they find the main pass they have it all.. I appreciate the help

>If they find the main pass they have it all
First they need access to your database, which hopefully you keep offline/private. Popular managers like keepassxc allow you to use keyfiles, so on top of something you know (master pass) you need possession of a special file which you presumably keep safer/more privater than the database itself (on a usb that never leaves your person).
The problem with a shared password or using your own simple algorithm is if any website you have an account on is ever hacked, all is lost. Every service you use is now pwned. People think they're smart and do something like 'CommonPassword-Facebook' and it doesn't take a genius to guess your other service passwords like 'CommonPassword-MySpace'.
You should also rotate passwords every so often, every year at least IMO. Pass managers keep track of these dates and can remember way more complex and harder to guess passwords than you.
Your master password should likely be diceware, a long string of dictionary words you never have to write down.

Here's the code to make it in real life my dude :
>write the english alphabet letters in random order on a page of a notebook. In pen. In ink.
>Assign random numeric values to the alphabets. In random order. No pattern.
>Write down the numerals. Assign alphabet characters to them in no order.

Now once you create a password , create their "assignment code" in purely numeric or alphabet format. Eg : 2,4,8,6 might refer to the letters h,j,a etc. Forming the original password. You can save the code anywhere and use the physical paper notebook as reference.

>Inb4 hurr durr I can do this with random num generator in muh python.

Good for you. Just my idea.doesn't need much tech prowess.

Im really getting my ass handed to me lately with losing my phones, and i lost a recent one that was 2FA to all of my devices, I want the number back to recover my shit, but im poor and cant afford new anything, aside from the typical porting, what can i do to get in the middle of this damn number, and my verifications.

ALSO, is there a way to use a tracfone verizon sim in a verizon phone, using straight talk. because i have a straight talk card, and i want to use it cause im fucking poor as porridge, and dont have the funds to be tossing about.

TO BE COMPLETELY HONEST, Id love to know absolutely anything about cellphones, signals, RF, SIMS, IMEI, SPOOFing, and anything in general regarding phones, they are strangely powerful.......OOOH AND HAM RADIO. like anything i can communicate with i wanna know all duh hakzors. ive been dabbling and lucking up on shit, but in general i wanna whistle into that bitch like mitnick and get free pussy.

Ill make sure to repay you guys in some capacity, idk leak a data manual or some shit.

If you think you can intercept SMS over the air for next to no money, you can't. Maybe the carrier will let you look at the messages online in realtime, like a parental monitoring feature, but I'm betting not.

In the future, for important things where possible you should use TOTP and backup your keys.

sup you autis/tech/ fucks i got a question about running cable n shit.
When you are in some dirty bastards dropped ceiling on a rickety ladder and you can't move for all the insulation, do you just throw it out or do you try to work around it? Personally after several years if nobody's there i just yank some out wherever i'm working and chuck it in the dumpster. Nobody cares.
I've seen all kinds of dumb shit in ceilings from tools to extra ceiling panels to this fuckin rad spongebob lunchbox with rotten food inside. I doubt they will care if an insulation panel or 5 go missing.

you can sign up for a phone number to use with signal by using jmp.chat. use tor to sign up for carlyx institute xmpp server.
these are the same people who make carlyx os if your familiar with that. grapheneos is similar but more secure.

Signal is stable on android, but centralized infrastructure.
Have you ever heard of Tox? (uTox/qTox/toxic/etc)
Jami is another option, but sometimes has rare odd connectivity issues.
RetroShare is less convenient but is purpose-built.

Check out PinePhone also, it is a Linux-based smartphone fondle-slab, and some of the distributions available for it are not stuck with using SystemD.
It can boot from onboard EMMC or a removable microSD card so it can always be unbricked, has a J7 removable battery, Headphone Jack, Cameras, Kill-Switches, USBC, and at some point will have a keyboard dock accessory with a secondary battery, all integrated into the onboard hard-wired "pogo pin matrix" connector behind the backplate.

I don't like or trust Signal but it's probably the best normie friendly option. I'd say XMPP with OMEMO encryption, Conversations on android and its various forks are pretty good.

I've tried looking for an answer but I don't know what I'm looking for exactly. My hard drives keep spinning up at regular times like the system is checking them or something. I thought it might have been my antivirus and added exceptions to monitoring them. I can't seem to find events in the administrative tools and now I'm thinking it's one of the services running. Anyone have insight as to why my hard drives keep spinning up when they're idle?

Could be defragging. It's pretty consistent, like every 15 minutes or so. The drive should be idle as it's only storage.

ok so this prebuilt has a licensed copy of windows on it which i need for work since the software we use annoyingly checks, it also has licensed copies of several Office/Adobe and other products, so I want to use it specifically, as far as I'm aware you can't just take the hard drive and slot it into another computer easily, i think there is probably software to help one accomplish that task, but i don't want to because on top of that the gaming/workstation computer i have is having motherboard issues and there's only a matter of time until it croaks, so i consider it effectively dead, but all the parts still work so i was trying to put them in this computer, just have one computer with the better parts and licensed software, i like this computer more anyway it's easier to carry than my giant custom built with it's heavy ass Lian Li almost a minicomputer case

the CPU is comparable so not even going to open that can of worms, RAM slots in fine obviously no issues there, however i realized the PSU has no connector to power the GPU I have, plus no way to power additional drives, so not paying much attention I think ok fine I'll just swap in my other computers PSU, it fits just barely so I think i'll just figure some hack job to get it to stay in place only for my high ass to realize there's no 24-pin power connector, and it appears to be powered by just 2 4-pin power connectors one for the CPU one for everything else presumably, and I notice even the DVD drive gets its power from a connector on the motherboard rather than the PSU

so my question is what form factor is this PSU and is there any way i can order one that fits, is compatible with this weird (to me) way of powering the computer, but also has an 8-pin power connector for the GPU and a few SATA power connectors? i'm sorry if this is a stupid question i'm just barely tech savvy enough to build a computer that works from scratch, but don't know anything about dealing with this, again i want to use this computer specifically for the reasons outlined, and also because replacing the motherboard on the computer I built would be annoying and expensive and I feel so close to making this prebuilt work, and at this point i almost want to make it work for the principle of the things since it's given me so much trouble, i'll post more pictures of the inside after this

also incidentally i just set the computer on that table for the picture i don't actually work with computers on a table that has a wool tablecloth lol

evidently from deeper research and seeing people try to upgrade similar models i don't see a way to do it without risky PSU mods, since HP doesn't seem to supply any proprietary PSUs that have the connectors I need and there's no way to use the PSU I have without doing something like shorting the pwr with a paper clip or something on the 24 pin connector, and avoiding that is the only reason I didn't just use both PSUs to begin with, I don't want to risk frying my work computer, and the parts from my old gaming computer are getting old at this point anyway, so i'm just going to build an entire new one from scratch when i get the money and suffer choppy minimum graphics in the mean time, disappointing conclusion oh well 🤷‍♀️ FFXIV, Minecraft, and DCSS are the only games i really play at this point anyway

perhaps it's better psychologically anyway to separate work from play into two different systems

Just for anyones reference windows 10 absolutely can actually do what i was talking about, I got a new work computer so i went to fix my gaming computer, slotted in the nvme that was in the old work computer to recycle, i was set up to install windows but it booted into that drive into a clearly broken windows install in 800×600 that slowly over the course of a few minutes fixed itself and rebooted into windows exactly as it was on the old work computer, even recognizing the rx580 despite the old computer using the amd apu, was it using stuff from the USB to do it? I was connected to the internet too
