  1. Greetings all Pretty much everybody is pissed at Fakebook, Gulag, Microsquish, NSA, plus sundry script-kiddies, blackmailers, et al, harvesting our data, wasting our band-with with advertising, tracking apps, cookies and other sundry, expensive annoyances, so I decided to develop SNAILS, which is part of my KISS philosophy - sent it to a couple friends/partners who absolutely loved it - they all deployed it immediately, friends & foes alike - uploaded to our SF site where it has taken off ... no Ph.D required to use it ... possibly a great fit for a lot of non-business users here as it simply boots from a tiny USB stick... Y'all dont even need a computer when traveling - plug the SNAILS stick into an IC PC & reboot - baddabing ... This is a brand new spin, a play on the very good TAILS anonymous browser, if you will, using an excellent, stable rebuild of MX as a base – this baby is equally as lean & mean as our previous builds - it contains the basic OS, including a bunch of great MX Tools, as well as Audacious Music Player, Firefox 60 ESR, which has not been adulterated by anyone, and because its all loaded into RAM, nobody can futz with it... Anonymous Trashmail, as well as an excellent 10GB VPN, as well as Skype Web, Adblock, etc, should you really, really need to contact that hottie at the local convenience store, anonymously ... or send a bit of revenge porn for blowing you off ... everything works, as advertised Take a gander at the top right of the Firefox menubar - all the Adblock, VPN, Trashmail, Skype icons are located there - easy - with no trace of you, or your whereabouts, once you reboot!!! Everything is included, including the fabulously crazy Compiz, which will rock your graphics boat, baby. Once the live iso has loaded, hit Menu, Accessories, Compiz Start, now tap your mouse wheel, and roll it. Baddabing – as before the 'jack' a/c is already activated – same with Audacious – simply untick the speaker mute box, hit play, adjust volume sliders, etc.... enjoy CSN&Y A Permanent Installation, you say ...?? Easy-Peasy Y'all might want to use this iso as a base for building your very own O/S There are oodles of great apps to choose from - check MX Tools, MX Package Installer, browse thru everything Once the ‘live’ O/S has loaded, select System, Partition Editor or Gparted, enter ‘root’ and look at your various partitions – choose the largest one, preferably a storage volume, either FAT or NTFS, shrink it by say 20GB, then format that 20GB partition using ext4, DO NOT format your larger data partition, now exit GParted Hit installer or open a root terminal, type ‘minstall’ sans quotes, follow the GUI, use the partition you just created – you can do this entire operation over various screens, for easy reference, back und forth, until its done – dont rush it. Once you are done installing everything, reboot, unplug stick, and there’s your very spartan new boot menu, which we will beautify later ... let it reboot ... your fresh install will be the top entry, or simply hit enter. Should MX Tools, MX Boot Options not work for you – it has never for me, install Grub Customizer – in Repo – works as advertised – beware, it is a somewhat slow, tedious re-write to MBR.... let it finish This rendition can be used as a building block, for all kinds of interesting projects – from secure banking, to fixing errant Operating Systems, file/picture recovery or a full blown Internet WYSIWYG system or SOHO or anonymous email-client ... Unix is, after-all, all about choices - this iso is fully functional, and up-to-date as of 09/11/2019... Once its installed, hit Menu, Sound & Video > Audacious > hit Play arrow, Hit the Speaker Icon, in lower right tray, untab mute, increase volume Hit menu, Accessories, Compiz Start ... its all singing & dancing ... If there is ‘fire’ on your screen, Compiz is cooking ... have fun Kindly read the WINDOWS.txt blurb also … Rufus [MSFT USB Utility] is on our site also .. download it at the same time An updated SOHO is also in the works for all you aspiring web-site builders, even includes a fairly decent WYSIWYG editor, FTP/SSH client, stay tuned. Remember - this O/S can be used for your Internet Banking, all Anonymous Browsing, a Fix Windows Anything Disk ... its a world-Class Rescue Disk. Happy Anonymous Internet Cruising ... have fun, y'all !! NB - this is a live [RAM] system - there are zero records traces once you reboot - Google, which I seldom use, now asks if I want 'English' translations - thinks I am in Latvia, Malta, et al ... my Adblocker activity has dropped by +75%, so has my data usage ... life is good - the 'Net as its supposed to be ... enjoy Regards Jack https://sourceforge.net/projects/mx-kde-iso/files/
  2. GT Download my iso - kiss the MSFT ecosystem goodbye - forever Everything runs on a Unix backbone, even Microsoft - and especially Google, Twitter, Fakebook, Amazon, Mac, iPhone, Android, et al Never understood why grown-up folks put up with Bill Gates' shit for years on end Jack MX+KDE+SOHO.iso https://sourceforge.net/projects/mx-kde-iso/files/
  3. Hi there Sunshine ...🍹🍣🍣 Good to hear from you - it has been a while - what happened to all those misfit friends of yours from the dark-side? Not the Manchester dark-side, the one on the wrong side of the tracks in Pattaya? Cant find/see anyone - did Ben/Larry/KGB/Numbnuts et al, all bite the big one? I know the Ozzie dude went home - heard that Ben reamed him real good. I spend a lot of time in Phuket also ... come visit ... take care Best Jack PS - the above iso is also a beautiful MSFT Windows rescue tool for when the BSoD crashes your HDD/SSD Keep a copy handy - it had test disk, photo rec, etc - use as required
  4. Greetings Gentlemen It has been a while - its what happens when you run several very large projects, in more than one country... However, I did manage to complete a couple fun projects - one that was critical-mass in running our group on a reliable, cohesive, everybody-on-the-same-page-basis, without employing a bunch of dumb sysadmin wonks to keep everybody honest, and rowing the boat in only one direction at a time .. This little stick one can run 'live' or from HDD/SSD - it will consume only 5/6GB of space, and it will simply do everything required to run a regular office environment, without further ado ... There are 2x iso files .. the larger one is the SOHO, the smaller one is the building block for say anonymous tails banking, Tor browsing, shenanigans etc .. read the help files, have fun Best Regards Jack https://sourceforge.net/projects/mx-kde-iso/files/

  6. I have always believed in wealth creation, and sharing - was merely wondering if any expats had a decent business network they could tap into to make a bunch of money, very easily, as we do all the heavy lifting Posting scams is highly illegal and not advised - every conversation is monitored - think Snowden/NSA There is also zero excuse for not knowing if any activity/scam is illegal .... its called due diligence Be advised to stay away from all those sites that promote any/all fraudulent activity One of our sovereign-state aerospace clients needs to pay for goods - this is part of their collection of assets Our bankers confirmed the documents as being authentic, or I would not have posted same here As I said to KGB one day - even if you personally dont have the ability to negotiate the deal, perhaps one of your close associates, favorite nephew or a rich uncle does - or knows who can - thats why we network. All you have to do is run it by me - we do the rest - we do this every day, all over the world ..... Regards Jack

  10. C'mon folks – time to fess-up …. who of you out there still use a dumbphone or more importantly, who of you miss your ol' dumbphones …. I don’t – I still have mine, much to NSA/Google chagrin. I use an 'ol Motorola Razr – the battery lasts for weeks I am not a FB, Tweet, Linkedin, Yelp kind of a moron – my people dont hang on social media, dont buy anything on that channel, never will – neither will yours, so let it go – its a scam – phuque NSA Social media has helped destroy bars, meetings, social get togethers etc – folks dont talk to each other any more, so how do you expect to buy some hot babe a drink or get laid, enjoy a great meal with her Social media also wastes time – and thats all we have – a little bit of time before we pass-on Dont waste it – it is a very precious commodity – and very limited Here's a freebie, a no-brainer – lose that smartphone, get rid of it, dump it now – when my bank has finished processing, clearing the L/C, they call me – which is why I have and use a mobile device All you are doing is making Google, Facebook, et al, richer – a lot richer – and you poorer I even took email off my dumbphone – it will be on my network when I am done with gym, bike, or getting laid – ya cant make money on social media, ya can waste time & money on it though – this excludes devs, of course, who are making money, big bucks, if they get lucky with Zuckface. As smartphones have become ubiquitous, a growing body of work has attempted to reconcile the consequences of constant connectivity. In Nicholas Carr’s 2010 book “The Shallows: What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains,” he argues that constant Web browsing has diminished the brain’s ability to sustain focus and think interpretively. (Carr uses a dumbphone.) Researchers have found that smartphones can cause stress and make it harder to sleep. David Meyer, a University of Michigan psychologist who studies multitasking, has seen first hand the downsides of the smartphone: he started using one a year ago, when a frustrated friend bought one for him. Meyer agrees with Carr’s assessment of the repercussions of those habits: “Your smartphone has turned you into a dumb organism,” he said. Sara Pritchard, a historian of technology at Cornell University, says her dumbphone helps her to be more productive and forces her to be more thoughtful about how she spends her time. Like most dumbphone users, she feels like it allows her to be “present” — rather than spending dinner with a friend splitting time between the real world and the screen. But she said there are other advantages. She has a dirt cheap pay-as-you-go plan. AT&T offers a $40 per month plan, half the price of a similar contract for a smartphone. Her phone is 7 years old and works perfectly well, she said, although the logo has worn off and she has no idea who manufactured it. “I could probably use it as a weapon,” she said. “It charges in five minutes and I can go days without charging it again.” Plus, the phone’s lack of GPS alleviates her concerns about surveillance. Infinite BatteryDumphones are fusion powered. Charging it is a was ceremony – th battery would last for weeks on that last bar - could take it on a week long hike and never worry about conserving battery for emergency situations - never ever think of taking a charger anywhere In contrast, a smartphone is like a Humvee with a gas tank the size of a champagne glass. That’s nothing new, but the real issue isn’t the power itself, it’s the opportunities to waste it. As you may already know, smartphones can be used for activities of widely varying importance: like scrolling through @EarthPics twitter feed vs. letting your roommate know you’ve locked yourself outside. Stronger Than SteelThrow a dumbphone at the wall in anger, drop it while crossing the street, or keep it in a pocket during an ultimate frisbee game Practical Human SkillsUsed to know where things were, and which streets were one-way, learned mental maps of bus lines, and use things like intuition to get around. More importantly, used to talk to people when help was needed - talk to bus drivers, old people on benches, and cute girls at the crosswalk - do crazy things like roll down the window to ask the driver next to me for directions. Theft-ProofWho steals a dumbphone? Who buys a dumbphone? That’s right. No one. Mental QuietIn the absence of notifications, feeds, and inboxes to consume – one can simply reflect. When alone with down time, look around, be aware, and let ones mind truly wander. There was nothing to check, was free to process thoughts and think about bigger things. Creativity and OriginalityUltimately, true creativity comes from having the time to digest all that data – most of which is useless, so while there are a lot more interesting inputs, consuming them eats at time one has to process and be creative with said data. There is zero to be gained from having a smartphone, one has zero Peace of mind. Each aspect of having a smartphone just give one more things to manage, more things to worry about, and less space to process what’s important. End of rant Peace Jack PS - apologize for the formatting [lack]
  11. Havent used it in a coons age - it was rather limited, kludgey even when I last played with it - but why pay say $10 bucks for their Premium edition when its free from Debian or Mint - last time we checked Zorin only had LXE and Gnome GUI, which are rather anal and limiting - no gingerbread - all uber plain jain Mint - an Ubuntu [Debian] clone - is extremely popular because it mimics XP so well - I dont like any of them personally, as they dont think I am old enough or capable of running as superuser [root] - sounds like a massive big brother complex, to wit I also find them very slow and over-protective - the O/S is supposed to be fast on a production machine Regards Jack http://linuxmint.com/
  12. Amen, Sir Tim - take a bow Regards Jack http://finance.yahoo.com/news/emirates-airline-annual-profit-jumps-40-percent-081154843--finance.html
