Most consumers/employees don’t worry about the what’s happening “behind the wall” once their computer is connected to the network. That’d be everything behind the connection of an Ethernet port or coaxial.

This is more for the technicians that work Layers 1-3 of the OSI Model. These are some of the basic tools the cable dogs and network infrastructure techs used on the field. Even some penetration testers, depending on their specialty.

There are some of us that are just getting into the Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) movement. For those with iOS, I felt like these personal recommendation would be a great start. Just because you’re on an Apple device doesn’t mean you can’t support FOSS developers. Hopefully this will help those get introduced or create a stepping stone into the FOSS culture.

Any suggestions on RSS readers from F-Droid? I've tried few at random, but haven't found one that visually tickles my fancy. Any suggestions are appreciated. :ablobcatcoffee:

Just grabbed two books that were highly recommended by a handful of people. Probably can't finish reading these immediately, but winter is coming. I'm sure they'll be a great read on days we're snowed in.

Can't find a Faraday bag that's within your budget? Just buy the fabric online and duct tape one together. I guarantee it's splash proof, lava proof, and black hole proof! Shamwow!

All jokes aside, it does work. Lets worry about decorating it later. And I still have a ton of extra fabric left. :ac_laughter:

It took about three layers to get a consistent RF cut off all my phones. It worked sometimes at two layers, but I wasn't exactly using rocket surgery tests.

It's been about two months with my new Pixel & GrapheneOS. I still have my other mobile contract with my iPhone, but last week I decided to leave that phone at home whenever I left the house.

It's been a full week now. I'm confident to drop my iPhone and mobile contract all together. I'll still use my MacBook Pro for my contacts with iMessage & accepted the fact that I can't read those text til I'm at home.

So officially, I'm a happy full-time user with an overly priced iPod. Woot!

@thenewoil Just listened to your latest Surveillance Report podcast. That topic about taxing electric cars per mile was intriguing. I don't own an electric vehicle, but I do understand the purpose of taxing. It's definitely an interesting subject to keep an eye on. This might have been the article you were referencing.

Never opening emails before coffee ever again. :blobcattableflip:

After a small DuckDuckGo search, I fell upon a website call VirusTotal to scan the PDF. Results didn't find anything malicious. They do claim scans aren't 100% accurate, which is understandable. At least I have a better peace of mind. Still paranoid, of course. Any other actions you suggest would be appreciated. :blobcatsweat:

I could just be paranoid. :blobfoxghost: Is there even a way to scan my Graphene device? Or maybe a service to send an email to see if the PDF is malicious?

What's the protocol if I opened a suspicious PDF that I originally thought was safe on my GrapheneOS device? :ac_amazed: It doesn't seem to have funny business, but it's highly suspicious to me.

@thenewoil Saw you uploaded a crash course on TOR. Great job! I've actually used the letter explanation to friends, but you're explanation is a lot more clear. Thanks for sharing your knowledge. :blobcathighfive:

I'm doing a paper on ransomware for a report. The more research, the better. Feel free to share if you find a good source related to the rise of ransomware attacks, how companies can prevent/recover, and example/statistics of how much ransomware can cost a business. :ablobcatwave:

Am I the only one that has a hard time saying "compartmentalize" out loud or is it just me? I'm pretty sure it's just me. :ageblobcat:

**FOSS Help**

I need to set the location of where I want my clone to be assigned.

docs.github.com/en/github/crea

So far, I've used this on GitBash, and I did clone it, but I have to use an empty folder. It's cloned, but I'm not sure where it's kept. What will I do if I can't find it?

Scripting is one of my weaknesses in my technological journey. My BS Degree program included an introductory C++ course, but I struggled with it.

What/where do you recommend a new scripter look for a community to help them learn and/or review their work? Or, given the large number of languages to choose from, for self-study? :blobfoxcomputer:
