Subject description: Why and How to Use Ring Instead of Skype on Linux
 

https://www.linux.com/learn/why-and-how-use-ring-instead-skype-linux

Ring is a pretty cool piece of software. Not only it is free (as in beer *and* freedom), distributed under a GPLv3 license, it is also based on open and standard protocols. It will also integrate well with your existing VoIP framework. Additionally, consider all the privacy features it comes with: point-to-point strong encryption, no central server thanks to its P2P network of nodes, and no need to register personal data with a third party.

Couple all that up with it's great multi-user conferencing feature, and you've got everything but an "alternative" to something else.


Further reading :
Jami
The application uses distributed hash tables (DHT) to establish communications. This technology eliminates the use of centralized registers and the retention of personal data. Jami is based on a distributed network technology, allowing it to not use servers that require dependency and that facilitate mass surveillance.
Jami stores your secrets (private keys for encryption and identity) only on the machine that executes it, which belongs to you. Your device is therefore the sole holder of your information.

Subject description: the only truly decentralized BitTorrent client out there
 

The Tribler lab at Delft University of Technology has sold part of its Bitcoin stash to purchase bandwidth for its anonymous torrent client. The bandwidth will be managed by swarms of intelligent bots which can buy new exit-point servers, if required. Users themselves can also join in by "mining" bandwidth tokens.

PostPosted: Thu 07 Feb 2019, 18:03    Post subject: Psip
Subject description: AKA PuppyPhone
 

Written by smokey01

Psip is an excellent Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) application written by our own jamesbond. It has been included in many Puppy distributions over the last few years.

Recently jamesbond made a few modifications at my request which has significantly increased it's functionality.
The psip thread: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=1011832#1011832 will explain.

I have made a few new packages of psip which can be found on my website at: http://smokey01.com/psip/

If anyone has compiled psip-1.42 for any other distribution I'm happy to put it on my site for others to download.

I'm yet to update my Psip Help page but it remains quite relevant.

I no longer use a sip provider like Iptel that's mentioned in my help page. I prefer to use true Peer 2 Peer (P2P) via a Virtual Private Network (VPN). This makes setting up Psip much easier and adds a couple of extra layers of security.

If you wish to make your self visible so anyone can call you then a provider like Iptel is necessary.


Help page :

To archive this help page, use SingleFile for Firefox or Chrome.

To download Psip :

Alternatively, if you have a Google account, and a gmail address, you can use hangouts.

PostPosted: Thu 11 Apr 2019, 17:02    Post subject: Moving from Web 2 to Web 3
Subject description: Opera 60
 

https://malwaretips.com/threads/opera-introduces-reborn-3-the-first-desktop-browser-with-web-3-faster-vpn-and-ad-blocker.91786/

Reborn 3 (Opera 60) was designed to improve people’s control over their privacy, security, and to give them access to Web 3, the Web of the future.

As it has since its creation, the Web continues to evolve. The first iteration of the Web allowed users to access information on static websites, but didn’t offer any interactive elements. The current generation of the Web, often referred to as Web 2.0, made the Web into a community, where users not only received information but also shared their own. Social media platforms let people share their lives online; shopping sites let people buy and sell. But people have become aware that these networks, and therefore their information, are controlled by a few select companies. While the Web seemed to be growing, it was in some ways actually consolidating.

Web 3 is an answer to this. Web 3 is an umbrella term for a set of emerging technologies intersecting cryptocurrencies, blockchains and distributed systems that, together, extend the capabilities of the Web we all use today in important and meaningful ways.

It is the decentralized Web, where information is in the hands of the users.

Cryptocurrency and blockchain offer a new level of security for online transactions. A Crypto Wallet functions similarly to a physical wallet in that it not only stores currency, but it houses your identification. It presents a completely secure way for you to identify yourself to websites.
Users are able to complete peer-to-peer transactions, bypassing major corporations who previously monopolized these processes. Non-fungible tokens represent entirely unique digital objects that cannot be replicated; you can truly own digital things. Decentralized apps, or dApps, are a possibility for apps to function independent of the device they are accessed on.

Speaking of Opera I created 64bit a tazpkg version of it.

I created a patched version of the opera browser to support these video formats:
opera_stable64-58.0.3135.127_H264_x86_64.tazpkg

I haven't tested it now but plan to include the patched version in the next release...maybe part of the adrv, so it is easier to remove if someone wants to create a lighter weight browser.

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=1024866#1024866

I modified the deb version so that it would support all youtube video formats. It could be converted to a pet using mistfire's taz2pet tool. In my opinion Opera has superior sound and video relative to other browsers that I've tried but I have nothing to base this on.
