Several, here in Spain there are quite a few chalets that use solar roofs for their own consumption and even have surpluses to repay surpluses to the network. Decentralizing energy production is a more efficient way than centralized production, naturally the energy industry is still putting obstacles, but this is already changing little by little. People realize that a house can be energetically self-sufficient with current technologies. https://www.homebiogas.com/blog/energy-self-sufficient-home/
I think that it isn’t so easy. The necessary infrastructure depends on the number of people rather than the number of buildings (electricity, water, pipes, streets, etc). An urbanization with individual houses can generate its energy needs sufficiently with decentralized solar and wind panels, which is not possible for the same number of people in a single building. The best example is the environmental impact of towns with individual houses and small buildings, comparing the impact of large, densely populated cities, which even influence the climate. The real world is not an island, as this drawing of yours suggests. Large cities with huge buildings cannot be integrated into nature they always replace it.
Well, I don’t provide any data, everything is encrypted end2end, nobody apart from me has access to them, also nobody of Vivaldi. What’s more, if I lose my Sync password, no one can recover the data, the price for privacy. But sync allows me not only to synchronize my data with my mobile or another PC where I have Vivaldi, it is also a Backup that allows me to recover all my settings, bookmarks, passwords, notes, etc. when i change the pc. I just have to install Vivaldi, enter my account and in seconds I have the browser back with all the data and settings as on the old PC. This is what the syncfunction is for.
Chrome, but not necessarly other Chromiums. Blink engine is better than Gecko or WebKit, offering more possibilities than others, because of this is more and more used by browser companies. Respect Spyware, also Firefox send Data to Alphabet, Nest and Googleanalytics (not the Browser itself, but Mozilla do), when you use sync.
Degoogled Chromium don’t, but you can not longer use Google servers for sync. Edge and Opera use own servers, but both are more spyware than Chrome itself, Vivaldi use a own encrypted syncserver in Iceland and dont send anything to Google (Google APIs that compromise privacy are removed from the code),
Otter Browser (Qt5 engine) is a nice, very fast and private browser, inspired by old Opera12, very lightweight, can be usefull for old PC or PC with few specs, same for the SSuite Netsurfer (WebKit2 and therefor only for Windows), both without sync, Brave, also privat, but without sync, apart shady practices with cryptocompanies and a fascistic CEO (donations to rightwing orgs, antivax and anti LGBT). Not very thrusworth at least for me.
Anyway, Blink is the current standard also for the most webpages, more and more optimized for this engine, like or not. There will be no other engines, because it is the most complex part of a browser and for this reason there have not been others for more than 20 years, where only the existing ones have been improved.
The rest depends on the taste and needs of each one.
Not so simple, even if they turn off the nuclear power plants, they will have another 20-30 years left until they have dismantled and decontaminated these plants, this is going to cost them billions and also with thousands of tons of radioactive debris, which, like the rest waste so far no one knows where to put it safely for the next 30,000 generations.
I understand you perfectly and I also think that an OS must work in the background and adapt exactly to what I want to do. This is possible with Windows, but certainly not in its default form. This is what I mean by the need to have more advanced knowledge than with Linux to achieve it. It’s not well documented, but Windows itself has some features that allow it to be done, starting with the famous GodMode. In more recent times there are also some OpenSource utilities that take care of this (I would have wanted these in my early days with the first Windows versions, although in 3.1, 95, 98, XP… there weren’t that many unwanted intrusions either, just annoying BSODs at times and endless updates of hours sometimes).
Unlike Linux, on Windows you need to be a advanced user for it to offer you real freedom, but it can be done. This is why I always laugh when they say that Linux is more complicated than Windows, which is false, Windows is only somewhat more intuitive to handle if you take it as it is or if you limit yourself to the configuration menu. But when you enter the Services or the console commands, the intuitions are over, there you have to know what you are doing so as not to turn your PC into a paperweight.
This is what a pyramid scam is all about. Throughout history, for as long as capitalism has existed, every crisis ended either with a war or not, but in any case the rich have become richer with this one. As with any Ponzi scheme, the drivers of this system collapsing disappear with the bucks, leaving the bankrupt losers who believed in the system behind.
I remember this story:
Detailed and unmissable instructions to carry out such a delicate and complex task, in 15 steps.
Pick up the cat and cradle it with your left arm as if it were holding a baby. Position the index finger and thumb of your left hand to apply gentle pressure to the cat’s cheeks while holding the pill with your right. When the cat opens its mouth, drop the pill inside. Allow him to close his mouth in order for him to swallow the pill.
Pick up the pill from the floor and the cat from behind the sofa. Cradle the cat again and repeat the process.
Bring the cat out of the bedroom and throw the slobbering pill in the trash.
Take a new pill from the box, cradle the cat, now in the cat’s right arm, keeping the hind legs firmly grasped with your left hand. Pry his jaws open and push the pill into his mouth with your thumb. Keep the cat’s mouth closed for a count of ten.
Get the pill out of the fishbowl and the cat off the cabinet. Call your wife.
Kneel on the floor with the jack held firmly between your knees. Keep the hind and front legs still. Ignore the growls the cat makes. Ask your wife to hold the pussycat’s head with one hand while she pokes his mouth open with a wooden ruler. Drop the pill in and vigorously rub the cat’s throat.
Remove the cat from the curtain roll holder. Bring another pill from the box. Remember to buy a new ruler and repair the curtains. Carefully sweep up pieces of porcelain figurines for later gluing.
Wrap the cat in a large towel and ask your wife to hold him flat, with only his head visible. Put the pill in a straw gas. Open the cat’s mouth with a pencil. Put one end of the straw in the cat’s mouth and the other in yours, blow.
Check the package insert to make sure the pill is not harmful to humans. Drink a glass of water to restore your sense of taste. Apply bandages to your wife’s arms and clean the blood from the carpet with cold, soapy water.
Bring the cat from the neighbor’s roof. Take another pill. Put the cat in the closet and close the door on the cat’s neck, leaving only the head out of the closet. Pry the mouth open with a dessert spoon. Drop the pill inside with a rubber band.
Go to the garage for a screwdriver to put the cabinet door back on its hinges. Apply cold compresses to your cheeks and check when the last tetanus was applied. I put the shirt I was wearing in the washing machine and took a clean one from the bedroom.
Call the fire department to get the cat down from the tree across the street. Apologize to your neighbor who crashed into his fence trying to escape from the angry cat. Take the last pill in the box.
Tie the cat’s front legs to the hind legs with a string. Tie it securely to the kitchen table leg. Look for heavy duty gloves. Hold the cat’s mouth open with a small crowbar. Put the pill in its mouth followed by a big piece of meat. Keep the head upright and pour a pint of water down the cat’s throat so that it swallows the pill.
Have your wife, if she can drive, take you to the ER. Sit quietly while the doctor bandages your fingers and forehead, and while the pill is removed from your eye. On the way back, stop at the furniture store to buy a new table for his kitchen.
Make an arrangement with an architectural firm to redecorate the house and call the vet to find out if he has any hamsters, or the like, to sell you.
Well, Swisscows is a good search engine, but it has a strong family safe filter at level Flanders which you cant quit. SearX is a good meta search engine, but sadly the different instances are not very stable, another one is MetaGer, a German Meta search engine, very good, also Qwant is a valid engine, even Startpage is a good and private engine with own proxy, but it’s a front end of Google and also use advertising. Whoogle is a good engine with the Google engine, but without the Google crap and tracking, It’s FOSS and has several instances. A French engine Peekier, very nice, instead of a list in the results, shows the thumbnails of the pages. Mojeek, a good privacy search engine. Anyway it’s recommended to use several different engines, this increases the results, since what one does not find, another may do.
Sadly yes, but it is usable and, even being a private company, in terms of privacy much better than Google or Bing, offering a very valid product. Other search engines that we use (DDG, Startpage…, the problem is that OpenSource search engines, if They do not work as frot-end of any commercial search engine, they are not useful for much, they do not usually have their own bots and databases because they lack the corresponding infrastructure, for this reason the current ones that use AI can replace this problem and will be the future) as well They are proprietary, no big deal, other priorities prevail. My Favorite anyway is Andisearch (Little startup, 2 Devs, Jed White and Angie Hoover)
You.com is a privacy-focused search engine built in Palo Alto, California, United States that summarizes web results using website categories, contrary to a traditional search engine which shows a list of links. The search engine was founded by former Salesforce employees and opened its public beta on November 9, 2021. In an interview, co-founder Richard Socher stated he wanted a search engine with a balance of privacy and personalization.
This is why I never used ChatGPT or Bing, nor this thingy of Google. There are a lot of secure and more private alternatives, like YouChat, Andisearch or Perplexity.ai, which you can use without problems.
https://you.com (you can switch to even more privacy, using it in Private Mode)
https://andisearch.com (Maybe the most private SearchAI ever, own reader mode and summarize function in the search result, there you can see also Videos without the need to access the page. Anonimous, no ads or tracking)
https://www.perplexity.ai (Which I’m still testing)
Yes, maybe, but I don’t see a big problem, there are a lot of devs, even tose with FOSS projects in Discord, for example Andisearch, and some of the other AI projects, because include it`s fuctions in Discord itself, not possible in other social networks. For Example Midway or BlueWillow only works in Discord itself. That Discord tracks the user like FB and others, isn’t really a problem with extensions and privacy tools which almost everybody use nowadays to show them the middlefinger, even Portmaster itself, which blocks all this crap that pages like these want to put in your system.
That a company uses Discord, Twitter or another major social network does not mean much, they simply use the most commonly used networks. This simply has practical reasons, having contact with more users there than they would have in a network where only a tiny percentage of them participate. Perhaps with the massive migration to Mastodon and other federated networks due to the fall of Twitter, this would change in the future.
Portmaster is a good and nice app, beter than Pi-hole, but avoid to use the SPN it has, it has very bad critics of several users. It seems that it doesn’t work as promised and it’s apparently been in alpha for quite some time with no recent developments.

The only thing AI is useful for me, is to use it as a search engine, to talk to a bot I already have enough with telephone customer service. For search engines it is true that YouChat is very good, but I also use Andisearch (the first search engine with AI) and now also Perplexity AI, which is also very good.
In reality, the question is a cultural contraposition of androgynous terms with respect to the juxtaposition of the global casuistry orientation. Perhaps it would be necessary to consider exogenous parameters with respect to Socratic philosophy, at least with respect to the genesis of this question from a position of initiation of ancient thought.
I do not want to finish my contribution to your interesting contribution without recommending the book: “The sidereal feeling of past constellations”, there it delves into the quantum philosophy applied to the singularity of the Spanish chickpea, it may be of interest to you.
This is the point, depending on the type of society, ideologies must be adapted, turning them into dogmas leads to failure by definition, this is the mistake of many parties on the left, eternally debating secondary aspects and forgetting what people really need, what should be the center of their commitment, not complying to the last comma what their corresponding ideology dictates. While the right does not have this problem, since for them the people themselves are secondary and the interests of large corporations are always identical. Today more than ever a great alliance of the left is necessary, leaving its debates internally to find compromises instead of confrontations.
A lot of people used it in these years
I’ve good experience with vgy.me, which I use also with ShareX. Good privacy (delete EXIF data, good encryption) and stable, max 20 Mb/image, all share links.
How many walable citys do you know with fewer cars, preserving extra space (Parks are no woods or nature), a good public transport and closer to nature? How to make a big building energy autonom? Big aglomerations are not the way. Energy by nuclear is a joke for several reasons. Even if you show the article from the gov, which shurly is objective and independent, the realyty is other. Come to Europe and see the problems with nukes they had and its form of housing.
