Kickstarter Cancels Anonabox Funding Campaign

houstonbofh Re:Hungry in Italics, Fuck Kickstarter (75 comments)

Tor does not and was not designed to prevent ease dropping.

But it sure prevents finding the person to eavesdrop... So, again, good enough.

Kickstarter Cancels Anonabox Funding Campaign

houstonbofh Re:Hungry in Italics, Fuck Kickstarter (75 comments)

If you want to anonymize your traffic, then use someone else's connection, changing your MAC every time you do so. Try to use multiple different connections in different locations. Try to use locations away from your house. Do not travel to said locations in a way that can easily be tracked (your cell phone, your car, etc.).

You solution is difficult, and not always needed. Sometimes you do not need perfect security, just enough to stop casual eavesdropping. TOR does this. And does it better that the current baseline, the laughably insecure SSL.

Yeah, it may be true that most people are borderline mentally retarded, but not everyone 15 year old is an idiot.

And those are not the ones using snapchat for nude selfies...

houstonbofh Not a bad business (62 comments)

Take a handful of emulators of very old hardware and open a cloud that host laughably small instances. It will probably work too.

The Era of Saturday Morning Cartoons Is Dead

houstonbofh Re:Real news (320 comments)

R.I.P., Saturday morning cartoons. I guess it's all real news for the kids of today...

You found real news on broadcast or cable television? When is it on, and what network or channel? I must view this beast, formally thought to be utterly extinct!

It is a reality show next season. They will take a CNN and a Fox newscaster and lock em in a cage until only one is left reporting.

The Era of Saturday Morning Cartoons Is Dead

houstonbofh Re:Cost of video on demand (320 comments)

Just download instead of stream. Actually, that is a better answer for places with broadband too with all of the throttling (we don't throttle! Really!) going on... Sure there is the legal thing about it, but it works.
