Bitcoin mixer with XMR

i need it with guns

I’ve heard mixing BTC is practically Useless. So i’ve been researching BTC-> XMR -> BTC instead.

But i don’t have time to download the whole Blockchain (Monero GUI OSX)

Question 1: is xmonero.to legit?

Question 2: Any light/webwallets for XMR (w/o the need to download the whole Blockchain?)

Question 3: Privacy-wise, is this enough?

Bitcoin -> Monero -> Bitcoin, Then those bitcoins are mixed using Helix

>Anytime Steamboat Willie is about to enter public domain, they pay off enough politicians to get copyright terms extended.

Than why didn't they do it this time?



I still think it's conceptually wrong. Giving anybody a monopoly over ANYTHING for ANY REASON, especially at the cost of property rights, is wrong and economically fallacious and disastrous. But that is true, modern copyright is many times worse than older copyright laws.



There's still time. Steamboat Willie has until 2023 before it's copyright expires.

All jpg cucks will hang.

All the time I see these stupid jpg thumbnails that 8chan is using and they are bigger filesize than if they were just png while looking like shit.

Worse yet random anons keep thinking jpg is always smaller and so they save their screencaps as these shitty jpg fuzz ridden higher filesize images.

It's because of the C and UNIX weenies. If they would've only implemented MULTICS inside of Symbolics LISP machines, this wouldn't happen.

Here's some crap that I just copied and pasted holding no relevance to anything I wrote.

The world changed out from under us very quickly. The new “workstation” category of computer appeared: the Suns and Apollos and so on. New technology for implementing Lisp was invented that allowed good Lisp implementations to run on conventional hardware; not quite as good as ours, but good enough for most purposes. So the real value-added of our special Lisp architecture was suddenly diminished. A large body of useful Unix software came to exist and was portable amongst the Unix workstations: no longer did each vendor have to develop a whole software suite. And the workstation vendors got to piggyback on the ever-faster, ever-cheaper CPU’s being made by Intel and Motorola and IBM, with whom it was hard for Symbolics to keep up. We at Symbolics were slow to acknowledge this. We believed our own “dogma” even as it became less true. It was embedded in our corporate culture. If you disputed it, your co-workers felt that you “just didn’t get it” and weren’t a member of the clan, so to speak. This stifled objective analysis. (This is a very easy problem to fall into — don’t let it happen to you!)

The secondary market often had reasons that they needed to use workstation (and, later, PC) hardware. Often they needed to interact with other software that didn’t run under Symbolics. Or they wanted to share the cost of the hardware with other applications that didn’t run on Symbolics. Symbolics machines came to be seen as “special-purpose hardware” as compared to “general-purpose” Unix workstations (and later Windows PCs). They cost a lot, but could not be used for the wider and wider range of available Unix software. Very few vendors wanted to make a product that could only run on “special-purpose hardware”. (Thanks, ICAD; we love you!)



I don't think he cucked it seems like they've taken his quotes out of context in that piece to create a hit piece attacking 8chan. He shouldn't have talked to the media at all, but if you isolate HW's quotes and consider they may have been the part of longer answers he's not saying what the article wants you to think he said

How the fuck do I do it? Can't find any cracks. Won't be connecting to the internet on this.

Tried the "OobeBnk" trial period reset trick (with registry modification), and pic related is what I get.

It still gives me five days left and I can't reset the trial period no matter what I do even though I have only reset it twice since and I really don't want to reinstall everything on this machine because right now it is perfect the way it is.



You should have ((())) windows xp, not the Current Year.



I've got no idea. I think the activation servers still exist, but I've been using some random cracked ISO I found online that seems to work fine. It seems to be clean of any malware, but I wouldn't bet on it.

The Old Hardware thread is probably a better pkace to discuss this.

>Stop using the internet if you're that worried of being spied on.

Is the same logic as; if you've got nothing to hide then you shouldn't worry yourself with mass surveillance. Yea, way to be another cog of the divide, conquer then control paradigm.... mannnn

There are tools and methods to lock out your devices; if you apply an understanding of their most vulnerable flaws.

When was the last time you changed your default router login?



PSP and TrustZone

You're probably better off using AMD Opteron or anything server cpus but if you're paying that much just get a Talos II.

Your only last problem would be backdoors like the time when Dell servers had backdoors but that came preinstalled or someone with clearance put it in there.

>why servers

Mostly monitored and supervised network activity so it means any attempt would reveal the target IP address and would cause uproar in biz scene.

Attacks on users usually are done remotely when the victim computer is on idle state while in an unrestricted network but that keeps the HDD from being accessed so what they do now is put SSds that still run at low power state (100mA or less) through UEFI botnet and non-removable batteries (now you know why it's SO shilled).

These types of attacks can only snoop on you through webcam or microphone if using HDD I even suspect Terry to be the one who programmed the bios backdoor thing they use right now because temple OS looks like it's meant to sit and run inside reserved space in your RAM as bios backdoor with full net/webcam/microphone stack but his clearance permits him to not say anything about it or they will put him down

Hardware should not come with backdoor though it may be malware flashed upon refurbishing/discontinue triggers or at certain RTC time when it's EOL.

This or my VPN provider is actively collaborating with them to spy on me.

Here a description what I mean:

>it has been like this since 2011

>year 2015 or 2016

>have strange occurence where my tower pc turned itself on

>it went to the passwords page of my encrypted debian partition

>turn on screen and just look at it

>maybe someone is remoting my machine and will type passwords now

>nothing happens

>turn off after 10 minutes

>shrug it off as nothing

>FF March 16th 2019

>Christchurch happening

>8gag slows down for me

>government agencies are lurking this site

>Jim even confirmed he is collaborating their research

>nobody knows what that means

>today my internet connection gets weird

>after I make a posting on /pol/ my internet dies

>need to restart cable modem

>reconnect another VPN server, everything works

>get back to /pol/

>connection dead again

>reconnect router

>works again

So now I want to ask what the odds are that I am on some govt watchlist.

I never thought I am interesting enough for govts but maybe they now just want to have everyone who ever posted on /pol/ in a govt database and spy on them for life. Or am I just paranoid and this was all coincidence?

>Obscurity isn't security

Yeah that's why nobody uses passwords. Fucking retard



Chain a VPN with tor and l2p daemon running on external machines which act as routers, remove wifi from the workstation machine and only connect it via ethernet to the router machine which is configured to allow only connections via tor/vpn/l2p. Sort of like a matryoshka doll of anonymization networks. Even if your workstation gets owned you are still gucci my dude. CIA BTFO.



Also, don't keep files with identifying info on the workstation machine, of course.

Instead of using an hidden volume for plausible deniability of the existence of an encrypted volume, wouldn't it be also possible to use a file container and and hide the file as something unremarkable?

The encrypted container can't distinguished from random. You could name it "004.dump" or "mem.log" to make it seem like it's just a blob of uninterpretable binary.

Are there any programs which generate big files of data which can't be distinguished from random afterwards?

>when they ask about them just say

When "they" ask questions, you don't answer. In the U.S., you have the right to remain silent, and it's really stupid to do otherwise unless a lawyer you trust says it's to your advantage to do so. Cops aren't on some kind of dispassionate search for the truth. If they've obtained a warrant to confiscate your electronics, they're there to fuck YOU in the ass by any means necessary. Don't acknowledge that the computer is yours (they'll successfully make that assertion anyway, if it's in your home/room), don't acknowledge that any of the files are yours, and don't say anything that indicates that you have any knowledge of anything that's on the hard drive. Don't say "Neener neener, I'm not going to give you my password!" Don't play coy and say, "Password? Why, what password, detective?"




Fucking zip it. Then it's their job to make their case, and if your lawyer knows what he's doing, he's going to make them look like fucking fools on the stand claiming that a bunch of garbage data that they don't have ANY information about (even the certainty that it's actually encrypted and not just random shit) is really leaded trade secrets/revenge porn/CP/whatever they're claiming it is.




It has been the single most important piece of advice for years. Yet people are stupid and talk to cops. The cliche is actually true. No one is smart enough to talk to cops. Even fucking lawyers can screw this up.



Sure, don't talk to the cops. Your lawyer is the only one who talks to the law enforcement. Having a good alibi is better than not having one, tho.

That's why vc has hidden volumes. You can hand over the outer volume passphrase, but they can't prove the hidden volume even exists. Plausible deniability.



Yep, giving no information is better than anything else. You are not a trained interrogator. You may have seen some interrogation techniques but you are likely not familiar with them at all. Have on standard line "I plead the fifth" or "No comment" or whatever and answer EVERY question with it. From whats your mothers name to do you want coffee? It will be much, much easier for you to stick with almost automatically saying a single line over and over again in a very stressful interrogation than for you to keep a lie going. Even if you manage to keep the lie going, you really didn't gain much over simply giving them no information.

Remember its not the police that decide your case, its the court. There is nothing you will ever say to the police that will help your case when you get to court. A exception might be cases like a very clear alibi, which would stop them from pursuing the case against you in the first place. But even then, you should not bring it up in an interrogation. Know the exact time/date/place you have an alibi against, get your evidence and provide it to them afterwards. Say nothing in interrogation.

It is also a good idea to, if your lawyer isn't actually preset yet (for example a first, short interrogation, you likely do not have the funds to keep lawyers present at all time), record the complete interrogation. Especially if they do not know you did. This can be done for example with a smart watch or whatever that isn't too visible. This can help yourself afterwards to spot moments they are lying to you. Because they will likely try to make you break bonds with people you trust. Because you being angry at them means you are likely going to start saying stuff. They can and will lie if they think it will help. Never say anything.
