One might consider using DNS encryption, such as dnscrypt-proxy plus Tor, on top of using a VPN (depending on one's privacy needs).  Generally speaking, there seems to be no reason to trust any VPN provider more than any IS provider.

Take a photo with your phone. Share it, and your desktop should show up as an option. Tap that and away the photo goes. Or if you're actually doing work on your iPad, you save a file and airdrop it over to the desktop. Otherwise you have to email it or dropbox it or some bullshit like that.


 
Thanks, I'll play with that.

Interesting article.  Thanks kcar.  I might have missed when you first posted it.  That article is now bookmarked.  

I went ahead and ordered a subscription to Private Internet Access which is well regarded by wirecutter but not recommended because PIA has yet to allow a 3rd party audit.

I toyed with the idea of putting PIA on the wireless router but many recommend against that.  The other option is a standalone PC to support the VPN, ideally in a Unix-based language such as OpenBSD.  A buddy helped set up something similar for a firewall a couple of decades ago.  That solution would require considerable investment on my part.

i think that's correct

as i understand it this is especially handy if you're a creator and not tethered to a desk

a personal icloud of sorts

gathering material/video/pics/etc.

Virtual Private Network (VPN)

We just moved to an ISP that offered 120 Mbps down 7 Mbps up.    The former service was an ASDL 15 Mbps down and less than 1 Mbps up.

Now that we have some bandwidth to spare, I was thinking of getting a VPN service for security and privacy.   Thoughts?

Tip:    Remove, wipe clean and then re-install Windows apps that have migrated from 32bit to 64bit over the past few years.

Could be my imagination or pure coincidence but I seem to solve problems and improve performance the few times I have done this.  Current OS:  Windows 10 Version 1809; originally Windows 7 Home OEM.

On the HTPC system, all of a sudden , qbittorrent seemed to be eliminating internet access except for torrents and google searches.   This would happen once qbittorrent was loaded.  There was no requirement to start downloading.   So I uninstalled qbittorent, erased all the files, and deleted all the registry entries.  Tedious.  (Coincidentally I removed a number of Win32 malware files but that did not resolve the problem.)

Then I re-installed the most recent stable 64bit version of qbittorrent.   Problem solved.  

Did the same for VLC player and Irfan View a while back.  

 

someone in my circle that consumes a lot of media and does some online shopping keeps getting knocked offline

to boot they know less than nothing about tech and don't run and update maint programs i've installed

all of this is on a severely abused laptop  

my solution was something i've done in the past

just put them on IOS

it has certainly made my life easier

windows is still my workhorse both personally and professionally

because software

android on my phone

Less availability of software.   Apple's policy of heavily taxing app providers.

Windows 10 is fixable to some extent if you don't mind getting into it.  Same with Android.

Linux and possibly other UNIX-based operating systems are the best if the machinery is older but something else to learn and once again, not as always as much software availability as Windows but fairly decent if you are doing technical stuff.

I'm having trouble explaining this to Google. I don't want to embed the site, or redirect away... I would like for people to be on powellepiscopal.com for their entire visit. But if they click on a link outside of the subdomain, they go there, out from under the powellepiscopal.com URL. 

Doable? If I have to involve the diowy.org monkeys, I will, but it seems like I ought to be able to just load something in the header of the index page that says "put everything at blahblah.blah.org here."
 
Make powellepiscopal.com a domain alias of stjohnspowell.diowy.org?

PS: You might need some URL Rewriting as well...

Make sure it's a permanent redirect (308).
