    1). Yeah, the problem there is crypto nerds still will give you grief even if you're 15/10.

    2.1). How about a password encrypted backup. Something like boxcrypter?

    2.1). Have you taken a look at the crypto model Signal uses? I seem to remember them using nested crypto.

    3). IDK man, maybe some sort of WireGuard VPN protocol where each device is a server and client? Probably won't work with people moving around. Maybe it just needs to be a custom integration and front-end for a Riot implementation?

    For that we already have websites, forums, and internet search.

    A very well researched examination about the lies and alternative history of Holocaust Denial and this includes Jordan Peterson's famous lecture.

    Ah, looks like uMatrix was blocking a script or redirect of some sort that kept the page from loading.

    What's with that link? I can't see anything other than a vague ad for Outline.

    I'm not sure why, but the mobile site won't load for me in Android Firefox with uMatrix and Decentraleyes. It does that loading animation and never does. I have to use the desktop site always.

    That's basically it for the Klaxons. Go me, that album is so well done, I wish they could get back to it. But maybe they only have one in them.

    First one I thought of was the Black Keys. I know they want to branch out a bit, but save that for side projects. Go back to dirty blues rock and stay there. Or how about Incubus? I'd really love...

    First one I thought of was the Black Keys. I know they want to branch out a bit, but save that for side projects. Go back to dirty blues rock and stay there.

    Or how about Incubus? I'd really love it if they went back to A Crow Left of the Murder.

    Rapidfire I've got The Kooks, Klaxons, Gwen Stephani/No Doubt, OKGO, Mos Def (just make another album!), Tegan and Sara, and Maroon 5.

    A longer one back is Billy Joel, he really needs to get back to The Stranger. But I doubt that will ever happen.

    As a palate cleanser, here's two that will never let you down if you dig their brand of music: Bayside and Spoon. Always amazing, great live shows. They're the epitome of snowmen.

    Hey, that's me! Thanks for the mention! I really like that video, but I was worried it wouldn't get much attention because of the length. You're a good guy (or lady).

    This is a series of videos that describes the techniques many in the alt right use, and possible ways to combat or at least recognize them. I've found them useful.

    Apple don't support Vulkan, and they just dropped support for OpenGL. To make games on Mac you now HAVE TO use Metal. If this whole thing is a rebellion against Microsoft for trying to lock down Windows more (and it very much is), then there's no way they'll support lock in via graphics API. You want games on a Mac? Dual boot with Linux. Try ElementaryOS, they're very OSX-like and can easily be made more-so.

    I've never lived in Texas, only driven through a few times. Anecdotally, people are short there. I sat in a super busy gas station lot for about half an hour, and every guy had to jump down from his truck. I'm 6'0" and felt like a towering giant.
