Question: How to install ElementaryOS without proprietary software like Wifi firmware?

I totally don't mean to call "SCAM". I really badly want the EOMA68 to become reality (like REALLY BADLY) but from my understanding it hasn't shipped one product. Last I checked the shipping date had changed from I believe August 2018 to October 2018. As far as I can tell they started selling by saying it would start shipping Mar 20, 20171. What has been the "hiccups" with getting the EOMA68 shipped?

Can new buyers be assured on when it will be shipped?

/r/Minetest is totally addicting. I love playing BlockySurvival.

I play Minecraft for the huge variety of mods. How does Minetest compare?

Original Poster1 point · 10 days ago

It is sooooooo much better IMHO.

Firstly you don't have to install mods to play on a modded server (not sure if Minecraft has added this yet)

Secondly the community is awesome. Minecraft has this too but they are mainly smaller more tightly together communities.

Third More items: https://wiki.minetest.net/Items

Fourth the cows are frekin wierd.

5th IT LIBRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyway, if you really want to know the differences just download it and play it.

It would be awesome if the same could be done for the OpenSUSE Build service. This way several Operating Systems can use the same repository. I don't believe it supports Arch though.

Original Poster3 points · 12 days ago

I will look into it 🤔 I used SUSE 17 years ago 😆

What I love about it is that developers just send one URL for several Distros. OpenSUSE will then have instructions for installing it on their OS.

One example of this is Lutris: https://software.opensuse.org/download.html?project=home%3Astrycore&package=lutris

Similar to GCIDE or Google Translate for translating between languages.

How is this any different from /r/Minetest

Have you considered further decentralizing the platform via networks like /r/i2p, /r/zeronet, /r/SubstratumNetwork (WIP), /r/gnusocial, /r/matrixprotocol, e.c.t.?

Original Poster2 points · 18 days ago · edited 18 days ago

Interesting that you would say that! We think steemit is flawed in many ways. One of which is that steemit has a global token. We believe every Dmunity (there will be many in the future, only ethereum for now) deserves its own token to incentivize good channel content. If ads start being curated, users can easily move to other dmunities unlike on steemit.

see more

Will channels get to dictate how their tokens are crafted (e.g /r/eos, /r/cardano, /r/DAGcoins, /r/tari, e.c.t) ?

Not sure why you think it would be contrary to the core idea of Substratum if the coin didn't have anonymity features? The primary use for it is on the exchange itself. Something similar to BNB.

Substratum is meant to enable users to access what they couldn't. Shouldn't this include Cryptocurrencies?

IMO they did it cuz, it would be impractical. I'm with ya, I would have wished the US was more CyrptoCurrency freindly but, Donald Trump banned the Peso1. The US isn't a reliable place to create something like this.

An interesting article I found: https://ellulschranz.com/service/ico-jurisdiction-malta/

Very few countries have been as freindly except maybe /r/Liberland or /r/Sealand but beacause of ongoing conlicts and small GDP they aren't necessarily "great".

Edit: Another good article: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/07/29/technology/cryptocurrency-bermuda-malta-gibraltar.html

It would be amazing if they could become FSF RYF Certified. Maybe run Parabola or Trisquel?

It would be neat if one could be built a decentralized web archive without Archive.is by having several users crawl a site and vote on what it actually says. Latency might be bad but, it would be trustworthy.

my local host says port 43110 is closed :(

What's done is done. Thanks to the transparency of the blockchain, everyone will know if any of that SUB ever moves.

For their future burn it's entirely possible they'll use the 0x000 address.

If you can, would you ask Justin in the Q&A to plz explain this decision? Even if it is just a simple "we didn't consider it" reply. IMO it would help with community confidence.

This is very interesting. However, wouldn't it be better if they created a burn function in the smart contract. Lots of groups trying to crack the burn address.

WARNING: I'm a bit of a noob, despite mainly using TOR and Qubes OS.

Many groups seem to hate Java Script like NoScript and LibreJS

Why is JS so dangerous? I have heard that the main issues are:

  1. It can gain you IP despite you using TOR. Unless you are using Whonix or a VPN which should fix this issue.

So no biggy right?

  1. Browser fingerprinting, however it sounds like this is only an issue if you don't remove cookies and cache or have lots of extensions. Even with extensions some are supposedly finger-less basically they don't send any data to the site and aren't noticeable. Like user end only stuff.

Again no biggy right?

Am I right or did I miss something?

second option is the main reason I guess, it can read your screen resolution and browser agent info which can help deanonymize you. Other thing I can think of is exploits in browsers which can infect the computers by breaking the browser sandbox or initiating drive-by downloads.

Doesn't TOR block all downloads without explicit consent?

As for Sandboxing, you can run TailsOS or Whonix in a VM and it should in theory fix this.

It can gain you IP despite you using TOR.

No, this is false. Using Javascript to directly get a user's networking information would be a severe vulnerability. There are other technologies which leverage Javascript, like WebRTC, but they are disabled in Tor Browser for effect.

Browser fingerprinting, however it sounds like this is only an issue if you don't remove cookies and cache or have lots of extensions. Even with extensions some are supposedly finger-less basically they don't send any data to the site and aren't noticeable. Like user end only stuff.

Cookies and cache are pieces of data stored on your computer that a Web site can read when you visit again. What makes Javascript "bad" is the fact the Web site can run code on your machine - and store the result server-side. A common technique is to use Javascript to read as many unique pieces of information about your computer and browser (time, screen resolutions, installed fonts, &c.) and store these unique values on the server, so you can be identified on future visits, even from other IP addresses.

TLDR: Javascript allows a Web site to run more advanced code on your computer, which can in turn be used to profile your identity.

​installed fonts

For Fonts, my web browser has an option to only use common fonts so shouldn't be an issue

​Resolutions

For resolution isn't everything pretty much the same now? Pretty much everything is 1280 x 800 or a similar variant. Besides of course, mobile.

​time

As for Time this is difficult. Maybe just disable the time function instad of all JS?

Question: In what ways will Amplify Exchange be better than Atomic Swap Clients like AtomicWallet?

Second post: AtomicWallet sends their order book over torrent. Check out ISPs ability to censor torrents. Torrents are typically public files that point you to the IP of everyone else involved. Maybe they've privatized it? Personally, torrent tech seems too old school and vulnerable for my transactions.

As one example Zeronet provides decentralized hosting via torrent. Great Firewall of China shut them down relatively easily. IMO torrent protocol is too identifiable.

How is Bittorrent insecure?

ZeroNet had a flaw but utilizing the same port. China was able to figure this out somehow and blocked it. They have fixed this and now have fully capable TOR integration and are working on I2p support as well. They are also still haven't released 1.0 yet.

IMHO ZeroNet isn't a competitor to Substratum as it is for long term free hosting. Main use case being Wikipedia like stuff. Substratum can do that but it would cost and if for some reason the money dries up *poof* the data does too. I would much prefer a ZeroNet proxy powered by Substratum.

Moderator of r/SubstratumNetwork, speaking officiallyScore hidden · 21 days ago · Stickied comment

It looks interesting.

Upon first glance it appears the AtomicWallet orderbook utilizes torrent technology. It would be interesting to see what the packets actually looks like. Amplify Exchange, on the other hand, will utilize Substratum Network which has its own advantages in terms of clandestine routing.

It'll be interesting to see what Substratum Network latency looks like over long distances. Dan and the team have been running a 5-node Substratum Network with no noticeable latency but so far that's only been within their office. Anyone that's ever used BitTorrent knows torrent latency can be an issue if there aren't enough peers. Only time will tell.

Another big difference, IMO, is that Amplify Exchange is working on fiat integration as well as SEC compliance. IMO, these will be two HUGE benefits for Amplify in terms of long term adoption.

Lastly, Amplify transactions will be validated by Substratum Nodes who will then be rewarded for doing so with AMPX token. Those tokens will then give a user the ability to save on fees on the exchange itself. For AtomicWallet the whitepaper states their token will be used to pay for different fees associated with the exchange.

Wouldn't Substratum also have latency issues issues if they have lack of nodes?

I agree that this is a possibly very beneficial feature, but won't a centralized 3rd party still be used for making sure that the Fiat currency actually gets exchanged? Similar to paypal via /r/Chainlink?

IMHO this gives both groups a disadvantage. Cryptocurrencies need to be able to stand on their own. The issue is you can't really do this in a decentralized way without brining in the 3rd currency.

hopefully by paying huge fee's that get spread to sub and amp holders

Ya, I really hope this never happens.

Ya'll token holders are so greedy. I hope they just use some POS method. Maybe allow AMPX (or whatever it is) decide through a POS method. Preferably it would allow anyone to list a coin with some sort spam protection. Token holders can be greedy and I don’t want them to decide stuff like this.

- Has the Substratum team considered using /r/tari or DAG for any of the coins/tokens

- How will coins/tokens get listed on the Amplify exchange?

- What fiat currencies will be listed on the Amplify Exchange?

- Will Fiat listed on the Amplify Exchange (Example EUR to USD)?

- How will the Amplify Exchange as a Legal US entity deal with US Jurisdiction such as the banning of the Petro.1

- Why use the Amplify exchange instead of Atomic Swaps?1

- Why use the Amplify Token/Coin instead of a fee-less currency like Iota.

- Why don't you have official documentation of BSD and Linux users?

- In order to access Substratum Hosted sites will users have to download software besides their web browser?

- In order to spread the world would the Substratum team be willing to make all Substratum Net Youtube videos public domain?

- If sensitive data is sent through Substratum Host is it automatically secure?

​ Justin Trabb needs to go because he's not skinny likable.

IMHO why he gets so much hate is cause he is an Apple fan working against censorship.

We can argue if this matters.

Substratum Tokens can be infinitely generated

Didn't they remove this? I thought they only had it in case of insufficient liquidity for people to purchase SUB.

Personally, my biggest fears are that Substratum-Host won't work without 3rd party software. They SEEM to have solved this. Another is that the token isn't anonymous and that Linux/BSD support sucks. Only supporting Windows, MacOS and Ubuntu is crazy. I hope they add more in the future.
