I enjoy perplexity.ai as it doesn’t require an account and doesn’t recall previous sessions. It’s built on OpenAI yet it’s not open sourced. To quote the founder of StabilityAI, the “toughest part of open chatGPT creation (aside from millions of bucks for RL bit) is the governance aspect…The nice thing is once all the blood sweat and tears go into creating the models and frameworks they can proliferate like crazy as a new type of dev primitive.”

There is are a few options on GitHub which could use help though. OpenAssistant, trlX, and PaLM + RLHF seem to have the most potential. Hopefully there will be a few options in the not to distant future.


The article highlights some of the bigger upgrades include finalized PE format conversion, upgraded “Windows-like” WoW64 mode plus better Vulkan support. But Wine updating will still require Proton to make changes before these features are included I believe


Finally! Sucked when you opened a doc then closed the program, you couldn't open another doc without a system restart. Stoked its been addressed!







Guess whenever Google rolls out the update to disable tracker blocking as we currently know it, we’ll be firmly able to answer this question. It’s unclear to me if this will impact Brave but if it doesn’t then this will show Brave was worth the hype more or less I think.

Edit: I love FF but something’s just run better on chromium, I have FF as default with Brave as a back up






After reading Data and Goliath: The Hidden Battles to Collect Your Data and Control Your World by Bruce Schneier. The book blew my mind and made me rethink my internet usage. Also, seeing how much money is made off data sales without true consent or any consideration to pay the individual for their data being sold, I began the journey. It’s a marathon as it takes a good while and it’s consistently evolving but well worth the effort!








At BurningMan, due to the lack of any running water, Dr. Bronner’s runs a Human Carwash and there’s always a long line. It’s setup like the ones you’d drive through but you just walk through it. Very solid marketing as their target market is hippies which overlaps thoroughly with Burners!


Dr. Bronner’s 18-in-1 Soap is solid as a body wash, shampoo, hand soap, for dishes and even cleaning the floor. So I actually do I guess and never realized until right now lol


Being philosophy basically is the study of the fundamental nature of knowledge, reality & existence while psychology more deals with the study of the human mind and its behaviour, I’d say the two are notably different. For example, a neuroscientist’s course load is roughly half psychology classes as this is the culmination of neurological variations. Whereas philosophy is more related to ideals sculpted through one’s individual experience. I’d expect to see some overlap between the two yet each is not dependent on the other if that makes sense.



That could be your issue, go to: settings -> connections -> select the VPN your connecting to -> VPN (openvpn) tab -> advanced -> general tab -> check use TCP connection

If the issue continues, definitely check the other advanced settings for sure. If you still have an issue I’d hit up Proton using https://protonvpn.com/support-form

Edit: Shield options are directly next to the kill switch icon under connect/disconnect as well



Have you tried reinstalling yet? If you’re in the UK that could explain the issue as ProtonVPN is apparently unlawfully being blocked out that way.




Like the others said, hardening your browser is going to be a good option. Additionally, a password manager is big too. I recommend BitWarden as its open sourced, cross platform and audited regularly. Security enables privacy, this is why you always see the two often referenced together. Standard Notes is another simple but powerful option. Like BitWarden its an open sourced and cross platform encryption based software. Emails are a big way to be tracked as well, using ProtonMail with SimpleLogin and/or AnonAddy is a powerful move but not exactly easy I guess


I don’t use stock but I also use fedora, I had issues with the kill switch. There’s two different kill switch options, my setup works much better with the simpler of the two. Also, I want to say fedora comes with the firewall enabled, plays into it being well ranked from a privacy standpoint I believe


I’d bet its a kill switch issue, if not it could be related to an antivirus, proxy or firewall setting.


I agree, granted it took some getting used to, but it provides impressive speeds even while blocking security & privacy threats!


Firefox fingerprint blocking has notorious errors with many websites. Instead of attempting to deny fingerprinting, Brave sends random info for each request. Maybe I’m missing something, how does denying fingerprinting for websites deemed untrusted make it more thorough than Brave which sends random info for any request??
