  1. Useful list of VPN providers who are privacy focused. PIA is notably missing.
  2. VPN from the folks behind protonmail. $50/yr for 3 devices, $100/yr for 5 + 2 hop encryption.
  3. Interesting VPN service. Bit pricey, but there's a 2 year plan for $80 which makes it pretty cheap. Includes SOCKS5 support, and allows 6 simultaneous connections. Claims absolutely no logs.
  4. Expensive as hell password manager. $40/year if you want to share. Trash talks the competition, without naming names. Might be useful, hard to tell.
  5. A VPN provider with a free option that offers 2 hours/day, total 5 hours/week free. Then some cheap (crap) plans and reasonable from €10/month. Expensive.
  6. VPN for $7/mth or $50/yr, includes access from 3 IPs simultaneously, plus SOCKS5 and other geek friendly shit. Great privacy policy, accepts bitcoin.
  7. Very helpful article that explains how to reboot 14.04 into single user mode even if it asks for a password. Trick is to add `init=/bin/bash` to the kernel line in grub. Booya.
  8. Excellent article explaining how to mount encrypted folders on OSX via the terminal, and thus be able to paste a password. Brilliant.
  9. Cheapest SSL certificates I can find. $6 / domain / year. Best price anywhere.
  10. Hosted torrents (in the cloud) from $10/month for 50G disk space. Torrent online, download. Simple, but a bit pricey...
  11. Very useful article on priming the OCSP cache in nginx. Neat. It works, but nginx won't start unless this is done, which suggests problem.
  12. Very useful article on setting up nginx and OCSP. Trick in my case was to enable the correct protocols and / or cipher suites.
  13. Tutorial on how to have launchd automatically run scripts (such as rysnc) when USB devices are plugged in, automated backup when a USB drive is plugged in for example.
  14. Tutorial on how to set up OSX to automatically backup when a USB drive is plugged in. Neat.
  15. Install this, prey, on phone (and laptop?). It's remote wipe, track, etc software, and it's free up to 3 devices apparently.
  16. Oustanding little introduction to npm and how to use it. One trick, give your user access to /usr/local/ or /usr/lib/node_modules/ so npm doesn't need sudo. Nice.
  17. How to save usernames / passwords so bazaar doesn't ask for them every time. Handy.
  18. Apparently one can secure a mac by issuing the command `sudo pmset -a destroyfvkeyonstandby 1` which tells it to destroy the FileVault keys on standby, whether standby to memory or disk.
  19. UK based NFC seller. Great info on NFC tags, how to program them, how much data they store, and so on. Very handy, seems reasonably priced.
  20. Article on how to use a YubiKey alongside SSH RSA key based login. Bit of a hack, but it appears to work. Nice.
  21. Article explaining how to use yubipam to enable yubikey authentication on a linux machine. However, yubipam only supports single factor auth, username + token, no additional password.
  22. PAM module that allows offline authentication against a yubikey. Requires a key to be retrieved from yubico by sending email plus payment info, etc. Less secure than online validation. Only supports single factor auth, username + token, no password.
  23. Script to enable a yubikey to be used with luks full disk encryption. Very interesting...
  24. The YubiKey is a USB device which appears to the computer as a keyboard. It has only 1 button, which when pressed, enters a one-time-password and then enter (can be configured). This can be verified against an online server, or offline via a few tools.
  25. Very interesting article on how to enable single use password logon for Ubuntu. Requires a thing called opie and a few config file changes. Seems very useful...
