Oh, my. Look what I ran across (for the 'Road Warrior') : https://github.com/gortcodex/dnscrypt-loader

I need to access the same untrusted communication channels, with my lappy, when I'm on the trot...

General Discussion / Re: On Dat Diskless NAS

No idea, I've been looking for quite some time for another NAS (probably a 4 bay), and yep prices are headed in the wrong direction :-\

And not just ReadyNAS.

Odd innit  ???

I don't mind paying a fair price, but when they're more expensive than a PC that makes no sense to me and i just feel ripped off .. it's getting to the point where something like an HP mini sever would be a better prospect financially.

[EDIT]

I've been looking at the possibility of a single board computer with 4 SATA connections and making my own .. sommat along the lines of:
https://shop.kobol.io/products/helios4-full-kit-2gb-ecc-3rd-batch-pre-order
I'm not that sure it'd save that much in the long run .. might be interesting though.

Or maybe building sommat mini-ITX

Pursuit to this convo: https://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php/topic,4890.msg57629.html#msg57629

What happened with the recent uptick in pricing for the Netgear ReadNAS RN212  :-\

Did they quit making them? Did they become a rare and highly desirable classic?  I don't get it...

XP is fun to mess with - like playing with fire, behind the house, when I was a kid.

I think XP is more akin to messing with nitroglycerine than a zippo at this point :)

I'd feel MUCH safer bunging say Ubuntu 10.10 on it .. which by comparison would be akin to safety matches inside a fire retardant box :))

Hey, that's what it was designed to use.

My Eee PC even has a 'speed boot' haxor baked into the BIOS, and a hidden partition on the drive to accommodate it.

XP is fun to mess with - like playing with fire, behind the house, when I was a kid.

It's okay until you start the field on fire, you know?   ;D

Seriously, as I've said before, the only reason I keep XP around is so I can update/maintain my print server.

Netgear, in their infinite wisdom, made their proprietary print server utility XP specific, and there's no workaround AFAIK, but I digress.

Tell 'em to dual-boot it with winders XP. That's what I do.

Just don't hook it up to the web...  :D

If you're an Android Pie phone user...

I just posted a DNS over TLS (DoT) tute on Reddit:

https://www.reddit.com/r/MotoX4/comments/cfma50/howto_enable_private_dns_over_tls_dot_on_moto_x4/

I thought there might be some Pie users here, too, that are interested in securing their phones over untrusted communication channels, such as public WiFi in hotels, airports, coffee shops, and so forth. 

Personally, I leave DoT running all the time.
