    Project mention: Parental Controls on Linux? | reddit.com/r/linuxquestions | 2023-02-08

    The next part is limiting access to certain websites. You would be amazed what are available. Either block sites at the wifi router or on the computers they use. Have a look at Steven Black's unified hosts file.

  • macOS-Security-and-Privacy-Guide

    Guide to securing and improving privacy on macOS

    Project mention: How to indicate that a laptop is locked and thus useless for thieves | reddit.com/r/techsupport | 2023-02-04

    Hi friends, I followed this guide: https://github.com/drduh/macOS-Security-and-Privacy-Guide and some additional steps to protect my macbook from being accessed by unauthorized people. The key steps I did was a full disk encryption and a custom firmware password. This makes it extremely difficult to repurpose my macbook after for example a theft. The reason I want this is that I often study in university or sometimes work in public places, but I also work as a software developer with sensitive consumer data.

  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services. Easy to start, it is available in the cloud or on-premises.

  • ungoogled-chromium

    Google Chromium, sans integration with Google

    Project mention: How do I make a chromium based browser? | reddit.com/r/browsers | 2023-02-03

    Get the source and compile it. Ungoogled chromium seems like a good base for a privacy browser: https://github.com/ungoogled-software/ungoogled-chromium/ As far as how to actually modify it in a meaningful way, idk, there’s probably some obscure documention for it somewhere. You chose probably one of the hardest hobby coding projects, probably on par with LFS and stuff like that. So for something more obtainable, a python + WebKit browser is also an option.

  • PySyft

    What exactly are you trying to measure? TTFB? Latency? Throughput? You could run a fleet of traffic generators in docker, but unless we know exactly what you want to see it's not very helpful.

  • Shreddit

    Project mention: Best Simple Security Practices for Protecting Self and Tendies - Final Repost for Visibility! | reddit.com/r/Superstonk | 2023-01-19

    - Visit [r / NukeRedditHistory] for a lovely little extension that will replace old comments/posts and then delete them (this is no longer available as a browser extension. Please check alternativeto.net for FOSS alternatives). Here are a few replacements that I will try over the next few weeks and update: Shreddit, PowerDeleteSuite, and Social-Amnesia. Not only should you do this currently every now and then, but especially post squeeze! I use this often.

  • Social-Amnesia

    Forget the past. Social Amnesia makes sure your social media accounts only show your posts from recent history, not from "that phase" 5 years ago.

  • ProjectAlice

    Project Alice is a smart voice home assistant that is completely modular and extensible.

    Project mention: Leon: Open-source, self-hosted personal assistant | news.ycombinator.com | 2022-09-04

    https://github.com/project-alice-assistant/ProjectAlice

    It is self hosted, offline by default, with options to use various ASR and TTS engines, some online, depending on your own privacy, performance or quality choices. It's quite mature and the maintainers are aiming for a 1 0.0 version release. I have been running it as the primary voice interface to my home automation system for years.

    As someone else said elsewhere, there are a few assistants around now. Perhaps there is some benefit for sharing of resources too, as all struggle for contributors.

  • openpyn-nordvpn

    Easily connect to and switch between, OpenVPN servers hosted by NordVPN on Linux (+patch leakes)

    Project mention: ipv6 - is it disabled or enabled? | reddit.com/r/voidlinux | 2023-02-04
