So I Deleted My Antivirus…

Having switched to Linux from Windows, I was accustomed to the idea of “needing” an antivirus program. Early on when I made the transition to Linux, the idea of not getting viruses seemed foreign. Therefore, up until recently, I was using ClamAV for one of those “just in case” scenarios. Thus far, every time I […]

How to Access Freenet (The Basics)

Doing that post on I2P inspired me – I think that I should do basic tutorials for all of the major “darknets” (and even perhaps some of the less known ones). In fact, based on some of the search terms I could see, people are wanting to know more about Freenet, so…ok then! That being […]

Alternate Blog on Write.as

I mentioned this briefly before, but I started an alternate blog on Write.as: secretsofthedark for more “tech review” related subjects. (I haven’t abandoned this blog, however.) Part of the reason for the second blog is because people (on IRC, that is) kept giving me flack about using WordPress! This article on WebsitesHate.me called The biggest […]

How to Access I2P (The Basics)

Part of the reason that I think […]

Tor Browser vs. Tor Network

In browsing certain subreddits and other groups recently, it’s come to my attention that there’s still a lot of misinformation floating around about Tor (and the “dark web” in general). For that reason, I checked Tor’s website and noticed that they had done a nice front end update! Well done, folks. Anyhow, let’s start with […]

How to Use Tor Browser for Android

Quite a while back, I had written a post entitled Accessing Tor on Android Devices, but at present, that post is more or less outdated. While you can still use Orbot, there’s now an app called Tor Browser for Android (Alpha), which is available on Google Play, as well as sites like this one: Tor […]

Well Played, Doxbin!

So, you might say I had this coming, but someone going by the name of “anon” recently dropped my dox on Doxbin, after I jokingly said “Don’t dox me, OK?” *facepalms himself* Well, I guess you should never joke about that sort of thing! (Seems obvious now.) I had to laugh at seeing some of […]
