It entirely depends on how you set it up and where in the transport pipeline you’re intercepting pockets from.

@Rustmilian@lemmy.world avatar

By combining with other methods for intercepting HTTPS traffic, typically involving installing certificates or modifying system configurations like configuring your browser or operating system to log secret keys.

To break down the process of the cert method :

  • Device Trust: Install a trusted Root CA certificate (issued by you) on the Android device using Root permissions. This certificate tricks apps into trusting the proxy. Without Root level install the apps may reject the certificate as User Installed.
  • Device Routes Traffic : Configure the rooted Android device to route its traffic to the proxy on the separate system. This can be done through proxy settings.
  • Proxy Decryption : Configure the proxy to use the corresponding private key to decrypt the HTTPS traffic coming from your device, this key is generated when you created/issued the Root CA.
  • Traffic Inspection : With the traffic decrypted, you can use Wireshark configured to the proxy to inspect the traffic.
  • Proxy Re-encrypts and Forwards: After inspection, the proxy re-encrypts the traffic using a legitimate certificate and forwards it to the real website.

No, no major government has completely adopted cryptocurrency as legal tender. El Salvador became the first country in the world to do so in September 2021, but there have been significant challenges :

  • Volatility: Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin are known for their price swings, making them less than ideal for everyday purchases.
  • Consumer protection: Concerns exist about the risks faced by Salvadoran consumers, especially those unfamiliar with the complexities of cryptocurrency.
  • Business adoption: Businesses have been slow to embrace Bitcoin due to technical hurdles and a lack of customer demand.

Cryptocurrencies are still considered too volatile and risky by most governments for everyday transactions.

Really, the only crypto that comes anywhere near :

If crypto had pivoted to freedom and prioritized mass-adoption

Is Monero. Unfortunately, it falls short when it comes to mass-adoption. Still, it’s just as volatile as any other crapto-currency, so using it as an investment vehicle is a bad idea. It seems almost like crapto-currency is fundamentally incompatible with stock market style investments.

“Crypto” has become a widely used abbreviation for “cryptocurrency,” even though “crypto” itself refers to the general field of cryptography and its encryption techniques. This informal usage reflects how cryptocurrencies have become the most recognizable application of cryptography for most people.

It was designed to be an ultimate check on the government’s authority to steal from their citizens through inflation. And anybody who tells you different is either a damn liar or has an agenda.

Unfortunately that’s just not how most crypto currency is designed. Really, most crypto currency are essentially an extremely volatile private bank with a user-federated money printer.
Most are just an obfuscation of global inflation and yet still highly influenced by governments.
Allowing governments to track the transactions makes crypto basically just a crappy version of credit cards.

Rustmilian ,
@Rustmilian@lemmy.world avatar

Completely agree. By obfuscating the blockchain transactions, monero is essentially digital cash (at least when it comes to monero-to-monero transactions); what craptocurrency is supposed to be. That’s why governments hate it so much, it’s hard to tax transactions they can’t see and it’s hard to regulate something you can’t control or track. That’s why governments opted to ban it outright.

Still, the whole “being used as a stock market” is a problem for monero too. To a lesser degree than other cryptos, monero still was heavily impacted by the crypto bubble-pop. Monero has a lot of technical merit, unfortunately it’s being soiled by the failure of competing cryptos.

Linus hasn’t written kernel code in years at this point, however he still is the final gate keeper of what gets merged and an active code reviewer, he manages the entire direction of the project.

As of what will happen when Linus passes, that’s already been decided. The position of projects leader will go to his most trusted project co-maintainer, which we have a good idea of who that is.

Rustmilian , (edited )
@Rustmilian@lemmy.world avatar

There are a few candidates, the most prominent are probably :

  • Greg Kroah-Hartman: Played a pivotal role in stabilizing the memory management subsystem and enhancing block I/O performance, both critical areas for system stability and performance.
  • Sage Sharp (formally Sarah Sharp) : Instrumental in the development and maintenance of the networking subsystem and the ARM architecture code, ensuring compatibility and efficient networking for various ARM-based devices.
  • Git Junio Hamano: Maintainer of Git, the version control system that underpins Linux development. His leadership in maintaining Git ensures smooth collaboration and efficient code management for the vast kernel developer community.

Greg Kroah-Hartman is speculated to be the most likely candidate, but it also depends on a few factors. Like, if Linus dies suddenly vs dying slowly or just stepping down, there’d be a big difference in selection process.

Ofc, things may change in the future and there’s many other talented developers who can be considered. Nothing is set in stone.

You know what else they could do? Store it… in batteries… which are reliable for long term storage… and aren’t nearly as volatile… and use it on stuff that generates more value per watt consumed… For example, batteries can be used to power homes and businesses, which can help to reduce reliance on fossil fuels and improve air quality e.g. improving quality of life which generates a shit load of value. Batteries can also be used to provide backup power in case of a blackout, which can be essential for critical infrastructure such as hospitals and data centers. I just don’t see how most crypto currency can compete in this space… maybe something highly power efficient? But even then the value is extremely volatile.

It’s not like they couldn’t be chosen, they have some serious stake in it. Consider their achievements and read the following :

Here are some key qualities a potential successor should possess :

  • Deep understanding of the Linux kernel: Intimate knowledge of the kernel’s codebase, architecture, and development process is essential.
  • Proven leadership skills: The ability to effectively guide a large team of developers with diverse technical backgrounds and priorities.
  • Strong communication and collaboration: Excellent communication skills to bridge the gap between developers, and foster a collaborative development environment.
  • Technical merit and reputation: A well-established reputation within the Linux community for technical contributions and code quality.
  • Vision for the future: A clear vision for the future direction of the kernel, ensuring it remains relevant and innovative.

I’d say they meet most if not all of them. All of the potential candidate’s are amazingly talented and determined individuals.

Wayland pretty much solves every single dual monitor issue. Only problem now is getting complete Nvidia support and patching out edge cases. I dual monitor all the time, and not just normal dual monitor either, the monitor count increases or decreases on a whim and not a single screen in use are the same. They all have different refresh rates, resolutions, orientations, vrr & hdr support, color ranges, etc. everything works as expected.

Yeah. If that’s not one of the first things IT did when they got hired, then you need a new IT. You seriously can’t trust anyone to not plug a random USB into volatile infostructure.

Also, they could do it to prevent theft of their proprietary code and other things that you’d probably need to sign a NDA to even see in the first place.

hundreds of different distros

And out of those “hundreds” only a handful of them are actually popular and progressing innovation…

As someone who’s distro hopped across a wide verity of distros, the fundamentals are more less the same across all of them. Just go with a popular distro with good documentation and you’ll be fine. If you’ve learned enough from mint to feel comfortable tackling Arch Linux, then the documention (e.g. ArchWiki) will be your strongest asset.

Luckily on KDE plasma this is just a GUI setting.

That’s why KDE Plasma just makes the searches shortcuts in a similar manner to the !bang feature of duckduckgo. Though it’d be nice if the used ! in the shortcuts alies by default. !ddg is just more reliable than ddg.

The registry is worse. They maliciously hide basic settings and leave you to figure it out without any documentation.
The terminal is actually consistent, Grub entries are consistent and have documentation, editing plain text is way better than manipulating binary data with a jank tool.
I guarantee that most Windows users, including the techy type, had no clue that the feature described in my post was even possible or existed. Point is, this is not a system level setting, it’s a basic setting that can easily be done with a simple GUI checkbox/button/switch just as KDE plasma has done. Window’s hiding it, not only inside the registry, but even hiding it from the registry as an unmarked option with 0 documention, is utterly ridiculous.

Rustmilian OP , (edited )
@Rustmilian@lemmy.world avatar

Yes, it is functionally different. Because of man, -h/–help,https://github.com/dbrgn/tealdeer, documentation, consistency, etc.
The terminal is a consistent and predictable tool that you are given every needed resource to able to learn and use. To find out what a command does is easy and you don’t need internet to do it. Plus, the terminal is way more versatile and extensible.
The entire point of the terminal is to empower the user and give a consistent interference to manipulate low-level and high-level settings, features and applications. While the entire point of the registry is to limit & obscure the accessibly of options Microsoft doesn’t want you to be able to touch or know about. Nor is it even consistent for that matter, with stuff shuffling around, resetting and being removed during updates. My post is a prime example, they don’t want you to be able to disable Bing search because they make money from it, exactly the same reason they actively try preventing you from removing edge.

Rustmilian OP , (edited )
@Rustmilian@lemmy.world avatar

The reason why is because of dependency hell and general packaging conflicts that could occur. You can go with the tar, snap, appimage or flatpak. If you do decide to use the system level package from a 3rd party, just be aware of the risks and be careful. The issue lay within the difference in standards, the usual target for these companies is Debian using the Debian packaging guidelines, while Ubuntu has their own, Ubuntu and Debian also have different release cycles which can lead to conflict with certain packages.
Perhaps, if you’re needs aren’t met maybe moving to a semi-rolling or rolling distro is best.
