@at This is a decent low budget indie flick in the spirit of Attack of the Killer Tomatoes and I'm Gonna Getcha Sucka.

@at The commenters who said this is training people to ignore security warnings (invalid certificate) are spot on! The best protection is education, not the Great Firewall of Mickey!

@Wetrix Well, at least money makes sense since it represents real things that you can buy (shelter, food, vacations, transportation, etc.). On the other hand, more people seem to be driven by social media "likes" that offer no benefit at all. Then there's bitcoin...

Campaigner Yelena Grigoryeva, 41, found with multiple stab wounds

Russian campaigners said on Monday that a woman found murdered with multiple stab wounds in the city of Saint Petersburg was a well-known activist who had received threats over her protests for LGBT rights and opposition causes.

Authorities confirmed that they had found the body of a woman in Russia’s second largest city, but did not identify her. “The body of a 41-year-old woman with multiple knife wounds was found on Sunday in southern Saint Petersburg,” the investigative committee said. www.theguardian.com/world/2019… #Russia #LGBTrights #Europe #Worldnews

@kravietz Good warning to carry a burner phone only to Kazakhstan. Same for some parts of western China. Personally, I never carry my main devices across any border. But with something like this, I might take a really old device to throw away after the trip.

@kravietz I wonder why people install unofficial apps anyway unless the official app is:
1. Not available for your obscure OS (sailfish phone, Haiku desktop, etc.)
2. The official app is terrible.
3. The official app is a privacy nightmare (trackers, etc.)

The official telegram app for Android does not fall into any of these categories.

@feynman @protonmail Also, when I travel, I don't encrypt my devices and I don't have any sensitive information. I also don't take a "clean" or "burner" device, because that looks suspicious. Remember, if you refuse to unlock your device you are in for a world of hurt and if you hand over your normal device, they will have ALL your personal details (banking, browsing history, contacts, etc). They could mirror the drive and have it forever. Travel smart.

@feynman @protonmail I have warned people about traveling across ANY border without special devices that do not have your personal details. Most ignore my advice. If they ask for my devices, fine. I only have two or three accounts (work email and device account). If they take it away, I only need to change the passwords on two or three accounts. Otherwise, I would have to change 500 passwords. No thanks! Do you trust border and "security" agents to not abuse your accounts?

@theguardian This is something you expect from United, not KLM.

@tuxmachines A better option is to run various distros in virtual machines. Then you can run them simultaneously if you need to stay up to date on what the different "flavors" offer.

@DuckDuckGo Overall a good article. Just a quick note. To avoid the paywall, simply turn off Javascript (Noscript or </> in uBlock Origin). I disagree with the critic who says the search results are not reliable and that openstreetmaps is less accurate. Google maps failed me far more often than OSMand. And I use Duck.com for most of my searches for the past few years without many issues. In the few instances, I need different results, there's startpage, qwant, and searx.

@DuckDuckGo Just a note about the article. Trustnav is recommended. I took a look at it and it makes a lot of claims on its site that cannot be verified. Not even its ownership structure is clear. Finally, malwarebytes and others have deemed its browser extension to be malicious.
