Hi, in early internet days, I found it very easy to find friends online. But now everyone sits in his / her own bubble. It sounds like a trivial question. But I feel like I am talking to bots, which "ghost" very quickly away.
Is there any one else that feels this way?
Hello everyone. How are you? I'm posting this for the sake of my Firefox web browser in Ubuntu 20.04. Whenever I want to use the Mozilla Firefox browser on my Windows 10 PC, the Firefox freezing issue makes it very difficult to use. I don’t know why this is happening or how to fix this issue...
Hi everyone, I hope you're all doing well! :)
As you know, the modern web has gradually become a tool of control by the Powers That Be, and the man who invented the original web has had concerns about that happening since day one. Now he's finally doing something about it by developing a...

I recently upgraded from 90 (which still had varying degrees of tracking protection under settings > privacy and security), and now LW feels too hardened. Here's an example of it causing a website to crash:
Which settings do I change to get it to stop doing this?
For those of you who remember my other thread "Make the Web Great Again", I had mentioned a handful of corporations have been trying to monopolize the web for years now. One way they've been doing that is through ecommerce sites. Just to be clear, I don't have a problem with ecommerce in and of...
Hi everyone! Hope you're all having a nice life! :)
While checking my feed I bumped in this quite interesting reading, and thought I'd share https://curlybracket.net/2022/03/31/internet-kids.html
Because of the browser wars, a small number of companies attempting to monopolize the web, personal websites becoming a dying trend, social media addiction, spyware, and numerous other issues affecting the modern web, I've occasionally been thinking about how we could remove all of them and...

I've successfully installed Mint 20.2 Cinnamon on an old Dell OptiPlex 780, and I'm trying to get a WiFi plug-in working since it doesn't have an integrated antenna. Now, on some of my machines (running various Windows OSes), it was plug and play while others I've had to manually install the...
I have few notions for server administration, so I wanted to get a bit more of knowledge and I turned my Raspberry PI into a internet connected Server.
So, I installed no-ip to have a fixed DNS, installed apache, and some other tools like ufw to keep my server the most secured I can...
I've noticed recently that whenever I watch a video on YouTube, HookTube, or Invidious, it buffers rather slow, which causes it to stop and have to buffer again (and can be quite annoying at times). I've cleared the cache in LibreWolf, hoping it will make the webpage move faster, but it doesn't...
I've been looking into Zeronet recently, and although I'm still learning how to use it, it does seem like an interesting alternative to the current internet, especially since its goal is to be open, free, and uncensorable (as it says on the main page of it's website). To increase privacy and...
My disc-booted 64-bit Puppy Linux 8.0 is not detecting my computer's wireless network interface. The wireless network interface does run fine with my computer's installed Ubuntu operating system. Puppy Linux is only detecting my eth0 ethernet.
Puppy Linux's terminal revealed my network module...
I installed Kali on a virtual machine in VM with a bridged connection and the icon is showing connected, when I ping google, youtube, dns servers or any page pings go great but I can't access them through any browser. Every time the same error: connection timed out. I turned off every proxy...
Hello guys, I have got a serious problem right here. I've got an realtek 802.11n adapter(probably my terminal reads it as "r8169" but I can't access internet, and I don't know how to install it into my Linux. I NEED HELP! I've never had any markable results of what I've tried so far. Thanks in...
Since not having a consistent internet connection or life connection since I was 16 (turning 26 in the summer), I am new to this whole being connected to the universe thing..
I am happy and turning over a new leaf.
Sometimes(often) it happens that I have been broke, and I am...
Good day to all of you guys !!!
Yesterday my laptop suffer from a bad superblock. (As I discovered later).
I fix my problem with this command:
(initramfs) fsck /dev/sdaX -y
And everything returned back to normal.
Everything except my wi fi. As you can see in the photo the output of :
I'm going to be installing Debian on my IBM Intel Pentium 4 Desktop via CD. How does Debian connect to my internal Voice / Fax Modem (ITU-T V.92, 56Kbps) so that I can connect to the Internet via Dialup? I assume that the Driver for Microsoft Windows is useless.
I'm wondering if anyone knows what I can do to fix this; I'm using Mint 18.3, with Firefox and Waterfox for my web browsers. I lose a lot of work when the internet connection just gets lost. When it does, I check it on my Mac laptop, which is on the same network, and I'm still connected. No...
