What a weird concidence. As I was taking my "coyote walk" last night, I found a duck-type bird (a grebe) by the side of the road that had been hit by a car and had its neck broken. I put it in a plastic bag and gave it to the alpha coyote when they showed up (waste not, want not). I thought it would take it way out of sight and eat it in private, but it only took it about ten meters away and proceeded to take it to pieces and gobble it down--I mean everything except the feathers, including the head and beak and legs, were chewed up and went down the hatch.
Obviously not this grebe I hope!

They'd do it if he was 18 inches tall...

You want to be private? ha ha ha ha

But here's some things you might do:

Re-install, encrypt your stuff and set up your firewall.

Get a no-log non-"14-Eyes" VPN provider. (Used to be "5-Eyes")

Change your VPN server at random intervals (this is easy, cuz they all have issues once in a while).

Use multiple browsers - this will get in the way of fingerprinting.

Don't use bookmarks in your browser - keep a separate list of links (I know, a pain, but not very hard once you get used to it).

Don't save passwords in any browsers - again, use a list.

If you need a password manager, use one that stays on your disk, and doesn't connect to anyone.

Keep everything possible on your machine, with regular backups to external disks.

Make sure you are a GAFA-free zone

Don't trust anyone.

Whew!

Am I nuts, or what?

I use StartPage as my default search engine, then go to SearX, with Google, DuckDuckGo, and Bing turned on in the Engines section, among others, if I need to go further. I rarely need to go beyond StartPage and SearX.

Never heard of SearX. It's a nice mega search engine. Thanks for sharing. I finally got my MX Blog going and it's index on the search engines now. I'm on the second page, so that's a good thing. https://i.imgur.com/mA2Bmpl.png

You might move up to page one if you tell people here where your blog is... domain url-wise. :bagoverhead:

A site that is not commercial, not selling anything and referencing MX we do not consider spam. However posting the link here is off topic.
