The BSODs continue and it really does look like Oracle’s Virtualbox is incompatible with Windows 10 Creators fall update. Windows 10 crashes upon access to Explorer—just what the circumstances are, I’m not sure.

Le logo en minuscules-humbles, mais on veille bien au capital sinon (faut pas déconner).

It’s not just US conservatives: Kiwis are getting shadow-banned on Twitter, too. And one of the ones I know is a self-described leftie. jackyan.com/blog/2018/01/twitt

Last week, I finally fixed my PC after it began BSODing three to six times a day since Windows 10 Creators fall update was installed. Took just over a month—between 100 and 200 BSODs and a lot of lost work.

All of this can actually be blamed on certain software not operating as promised.

All bin Laden et al had to do to avoid NSA detection was use PDFs.

US tax dollars at work.

@medusa Still DuckDuckGo is a centralized service owned by one (US) company...

Have you tried Searx, the decentralized search-proxy? It preserves you from disclosing any personal/behavioral data to any of these companies, while still using (subverting?) their resources, including Google.

You can set up your own instance, or use one of the running ones from the list:
github.com/asciimoo/searx/wiki

like for instance searx.dk <3

Just switched from google as a default search engine for all my browsers to duckduckgo. #fuckoffgoogle

When the ‘Microsoft technical department’ scammers called me (only once in all these years) I started laughing, trying to think whether I should turn on my Linux PC or go to the office Imac and mess with them, but they hung up probably because my laughter gave the game away.

It’s not just conservatives. Two New Zealanders were shadow-banned by Twitter over the last two days, and our Kiwi politics could hardly be called conservative by US standards. hannity.com/media-room/busted-

I reckon I had around 180 BSODs since the Windows 10 Creators fall update. Might have finally identified the culprit. jackyan.com/blog/2018/01/mozy-
