this is a business trick that is commonly used in india and other nearby countries... they intentionally confuse things and otherwise make it easier for you to pay more money than to try to fix the problem that was intentionally created by the manufacturer.

for example, cars have become overly complicated with the many sensors that are required to keep a car running properly.. there are literally sensors that detect when a sensor has stopped functioning properly.

Made the full-time switch to Linux about a year ago. No need to "debloat" it. It's leagues better (and easier) than it was just a few years ago. I'll never go back to the steaming shit pile known as Windows. There's a reason they gave away Windows 10 and 11, and it isn't because they're just a nice company! I was even able to get my wife to switch, and she's about as non-techie as they come, and she's had zero problems using it.

Just use Linux. Microsoft will eventually lock computer so we can't install any other operating system on it. Linux is the futur, I really wish I did the change earlier. You can boot Linux from a USB key to try it on your computer to see if everything work or check out if you are able to install everything properly. A few tips:

  • Start with Ubuntu, especially if your a computer noob.

  • If, for some reason, you cannot connect to internet, you can use a cell phone that you plug in the computer (as if you were charging) and then allow USB thetering and share wifi so you can install the needed driver to get internet.

  • Some beginner friendly tutorial (a linux journey).

  • Your favorite search engine is your friend. If your able to search properly, you should be able to solve most problems.

  • I recommend to have at least 3 hours to spend on using linux before thinking about using it for your regular computer task to properly get into it.

Yes, you should get VetLaw to help you. Do you have any lingering mental trauma, trouble sleeping, sudden outbursts? These and other questions are things you should discuss with VetLaw before making a claim or claims. Since I had no one to discuss it with in this country, I went into the claims situation very naively, thinking VA would be helpful. Believe me, they are not. A new bill that may soon be passed will make the whole process even more difficult, if that is possible so don't hesitate. BTW, you can call from VetLaw's website. If you call the VA directly, be prepared to spend a looong time on hold so forget that.

Before going to Vietnam, I fractured my ankle and the doctor told me twice that it would give me problems later on. But those records have been lost by VA. Also VA itself told me i had been exposed to Agent Orange for 18 months in country. I have letters from two neurologists saying the visible (by MRI) damage may have been caused by AO exposure. If you want to apply to VetLaw, and let them sort it out, look it up online. They will not charge you unless they win and you get payments from VA. Looks like a good deal, not a ripoff.

I get great healthcare and a pension here in Japan but then I paid into the system for many years. I'm trying to get a pension from VA but they were sending my mail via ESTONIA and sometimes it took two months to get here. No joke. I now have a law firm called VetLaw helping me. They work on a "no win, no pay" basis. So if they do not get me some money, I pay NOTHING. It was hard to find a law firm to work with me because of liiving abroad but these people are good. They have one in every state if you have any thing you want to claim. Army?

With the money, they pimp from the "corporations" too lazy to ditch their fucking virus, they then buy political weight with.

Which they managed to trap with their bs fences for decades now, because these "deciders" in the "big" corporations are lazy overpaid full-time bullshitters themselves for most parts.

I agree on the "compatible" point. I've mostly dealt with it by buying turnkey Linux systems (and this is coming from someone who first used Linux in 1998). On occasion my wife will bring home a scanner or printer or something, and at that point I just have to roll the dice and Google it. It's not ideal.

Once it's all set up I find Linux to be much easier to use than Windows or iOS. Windows seems to just randomly get bogged down and stop processing my input. It also changes a lot. I remember there being a version where they dropped the Start button. Then "Start" came back. On the newest version of Windows I've used the window it brought up was like, giant and full of ads, the weather, etc. Huge "WTF?" moment.

The iOS windowing metaphor is also full of those moments. I seriously think they need to just license something from Microsoft (right click? ALT+Tab?) instead of being stubborn and calling their shit "Mission Control" and acting like it's special. It's just total chaos.

You can make a giant solar still with a sheet of plastic for probably as much, without having to find whatever that floaty thing is they're using.

I think what they are really doing is attempting to replace existing encryption standards with phony "quantum encryption" with NSA back doors in it.

Existing standards like AES have not even been tested to their full capability. AES is based around a 4x4 array and AES 128 uses 10 rounds, AES 192 uses 12 rounds and AES 256 uses 14.

Those were the numbers chosen for speed on the computers at the time in the 1990s.

They could easily upgrade what they already know works by increasing it's complexity. For example instead of basing substitution around a 4x4 two dimensional array, use a 6x6 3 dimensional array.. Then instead of using 10, 12 or 14 rounds (depending on key size) use 16, 20 and 24 rounds and then run the entire encryption algorithm a second time using a 2nd key generated from that first set of encrypted data.

You all know to this day no one has even proven AES could be cracked in its original configuration never mind some kind of upgraded configuration like that, and then on top of that, there were other encryption algorithms like Serpent that were already more complex than AES but were not chosen to be the standard because they were slower. On todays computers that speed difference would be negligable.

These are pretty easy to build if you are the least bit handy with tools. I made one for a class science project when I was a teenager. In a pinch, you can make one out of plastic water bottles that will get you minimal drinking water.

I think it is because our governments are all under the control of a cabal of global criminal elites that have been defrauding all our elections for decades. They know it is just a matter of time before the people wake up and realize this and try to organize a revolution to take them out. They think keeping us under surveillance will allow them to prevent that.

Yes and a lot more than that. Depending on which DNS resolver you choose. Some help to block ads and tracking by blocking DNS requests to those servers.

Some use encryption to prevent censorship by your ISP and other man in the middle servers from blocking you DNS requests for sites they do not want you to access.

There is also a good firewall included.

If you think this is good then you probably haven't realized that the technology already exists to stop most crime but it isn't used to do it.

Technology like this will be used by those in power to protect themselves and no one else.

Racist algorithms make racist robots, all AI carries the biases of its creators, and a chatbot trained on 4chan becomes vile.

Yeah, I recall that they had to tweak the AI filter or something after they found out that tweets by African Americans were more likely to flag as being offensive (ie. racist or hateful).
