#Firefox #ProTip: right-click on a search box in a website, select "Add a Keyword for this Search", and give it something very short (like an abbreviation) then save it. Open a new tab, type that keyword, enter a query, press enter, and be amazed 😏

Also Snips is the supposed fully local version. Shameless plug if anyone wants to help contribute to the privacy and security knowledge of Mycroft I am working on the only privacy and security skill for open AI.

You can actually set up mycroft to work locally with your own skills. The sync to their servers are so that you can say install _____ skill. I installed on one of my servers and have my own skill repository.

Understand my words with full knowledge and reverence for my connection to the void.

My data is not yours to own.

You came here and asked to sell us things, then tracked us with the things you sold us.

You came here and begged for trust, which many gave you, then betrayed it by selling our secrets.

Then you took away our nation.

My data is not yours to own.

So I volunteered at a high class private event with silent auction and raffle entries. The problem being that to enter said raffles it required us volunteers to have PayPal on our phones and manully enter each card info. They told us to connect to the publicly broadcast OPEN WiFi for internet. Just waiting to be taken advantage of security wise. Someone is going to get had one year and someone's going to be in a lot of trouble. There were politicians and CEOs there.

Im a little ticked about this Mycroft stuff. Here i was under the impression that Mycroft was a stand alone system that didnt phone home or send my questions off to some company and i build out a picroft only to find out that its just another company collecting data on me under the guise of FOSS. must use an account so thay can gobble up data and sell out to the highest bidder no doubt. nope. good thing the google aiy kit was only 5 bucks.

You have a few problems computing,
And call them for help troubleshooting.
"I'm sorry" they say,
As you start to pray,
"But have you attempted rebooting?"

@succfemboi does #GrapheneOS remove all the proprietary bits of #Android, like gOgle Prey Services? According to this blog piece, #HashBangOS does, and #LineageOS and most of the other custom ROMs don't:
