New leaflets available to explain how Tails (The Amnesic Incognito Live System) works.

They are available in in English, French, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish:
tails.boum.org/contribute/how/

You can print them out, to distribute them where ever you believe fits.

Thanks to @dileodile for making it, and thanks to @anhdres for the illustrations.

(Tails protects you against surveillance, censorship, advertising, and viruses with a full digital security toolbox to allow secret communication)

Friendly reminder that articles on arxiv or any of the other arxivs (medarxiv, bioarxiv) are not peer-reviewed.

Friendly reminder that even if they were peer-reviewed, you should review them yourself before taking them as the holy grail that will solve all of our problems.

Actually - looks like it does sometimes but not other times, oddly.
