After a very long time, I will finally be able to push a major @retrochecker update. Hundreds of improvements have been made. No tracking! All the basic functionality works offline. Hopefully launching in the next days!
followup - here is a (tracking free) copy of a 2020 forbes article elaborating on what happens when ebay scans your local / LAN ports.
#GDPR #DSGVO Sometimes i really wonder howto determine whether something is "legitimate interest" per the GDPR. E.g. if eBay cannot find a cookie on my machine, it ll use a service called threatmetrix to attempt a LAN scan (e.g. whats running on 127.0.0.1 and beyond) from within the browser. I only noticed because LittleSnitch alarmed about it. I cannot imagine that this could be a legitimate interest. Any clues how to determine if could successfully sue them?
New Linux kernel bug lets you get root on most modern distros https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/new-linux-kernel-bug-lets-you-get-root-on-most-modern-distros/
After my first MythTV install in 2007, i dreamt about how cool it would be to stream the data from my home to anywhere I am, giving me a 100% "tracking free" way to watch TV. Today, this dream turned reality. I watched TV streamed from my home Sat dish -> Raspberry -> MythTV -> VPN -> Client, all while on a 300km/h fast ICE train - over their onboard WIFI - and it just worked. So liberating, a nerd dream come true! Hotel TV and surveillance streaming go home, i have MythTV and a 20TB NAS. :)
