🤦♂️ put linux on it or don't buy this kind of stuff.
If you’re not in my particular niche communities, you might not know about the community that exists around old ThinkPad laptops. But I’m going to tell you about it, because I think it’s awesome!
ThinkPad laptops from years ago are enduringly popular, because they have great support from free software, and they’re extremely repairable.
Not only are new or used parts extremely easy to come by, people are even designing new parts for these old machines, so you can upgrade rather than replace!
@stevenroose No more occasional donations from me I guess. Sad.
@elementary F2! F2 was the key I was looking for all that time! Is this documented somewhere?
@xarph Where do you suggest to mirror them? I know git-center on zeronet, but not many people are running zeronet on the localhost, therfore cloning the repos from there can be a pain in the ass.
Are there some reliable ways how to disable #eCall in cars? Is somebody working on that? It's much bigger issue than some cookies or browser fingerprinting.
God dammit, Google.

But srsly, zombie apocalypse is nothing compared to the world where we replace proof-of-work crypto currencies by proof-of-cremation. Straight from regular zombie postapo territory right to the Matrix level "people as a commodity" type of world.
@Mac_CZ More like hash function.
