The real question here is, “can we buy flashcarts still?”.
I'm still a pc noob, I don't watch porn neither buy firearms, does my pc still has high chance to get affected by malware or virus? I've static IP.
And the point to using this?
Just use a Antivirus, or Linux. It's not that hard to avoid malware. It's also not hard to avoid tracking using a reliable VPN. This DNS is just another quick gimmick. Not really that impressive nor useful. So, why is everyone making a big deal about it?
The more layers between you and the government the better. The Internet is an international construct and shouldn't be subject to spying or local jurisdiction.
Or private companies who will store and maintain more information than you personally know about yourself to use whenever a new data mining algorithm allows them to bleed more money out of you.
In either case, it'll be leaked thanks to NSA created tools sold on the black market being used on internet facing sites with way too much information with bare standards of security.
I guess Cyberpunk is too cool not to become real, or something.
On topic... it helps, but there's no silver bullet for a device connected to the internet - by design, in many ways. Really.
Definitely not an "end all be all" solution, but I can see this being quite useful when setting up PCs for people who aren't all that tech literate. My mother has a bad habit of downloading a lot of garbage, regardless of being told not to, so this would probably help in a small way to at least prevent some malware from getting on her PC.
Can confirm. Cabela's, Cheaper Than Dirt, Gunbroker...
Hell you can order flintlock and other black powder rifles and guns and have them shipped straight to your door.
Unfortunately it's illegal to ship repeating firearms to your door. You used to be able to until the 60s or 70s
Can still order them and go down to your local licensed dealer once your background check is complete.
This is uhh, interesting, I am not going to do it now, but I think later I might,
They also don't log your Ip in, so there is that, I think that would be around the only reason I wouldn't.
I am also interested in everyone's opinion
Hey Costello could we get a poll?
Basically, I'm wondering whether something declared a bad site may not be a bad site when you try to access it.
Or they may not like a site because it can be used for something e.g. blocking Mega (which may be abused).
I'd use this, but malwarebytes is doing a pretty good job for me when it comes to malware and suspicious sites
Can't wait for the site blocking and content censorship. Yay.
Except when those layers are working with the government.
You don' have to use it
Which is why you need plenty of'em.
i thought it said cloud nine for a sec
They're still a more benevolent overlord than most, but me-first capitalism has definitely infected their mentality over the years.
Yeah, I'd place their current motto at "Don't be evil, but we won't say no to a quick buck here and there"
The internet was created in the US, but really that is irrelevant. If your car was built in a different country it wouldn't mean you were allowed to speed or run people over with impunity.
You might be able to get past sites that are blocked using an alternative DNS server, but they can totally see what you're doing. They can also tell that you purposefully worked round the blocks to do it.
Time to reconfigure my private DNS server I guess.
Where the Internet started is irrelevant, it's a decentralised network, and as such it has no central location by definition. It is not a good or service, it's a mode of communication, like a language. Nobody should be in charge of it, much like nobody's in charge of what languages you can or can't speak. The fact that governments monitor the Internet at all is an invasion of privacy - they're not allowed to tap your phone without a warrant, but somehow they're magically allowed to analyse your Internet traffic. Encryption, VPN's, routing, DNS and other such solutions are paramount in keeping the Internet free, as it should be. Anything less than that is a violation of freedom of speech and expression.
