Away from the forum

Freewheeling spot to chew the fat on anything cryptostorm-related that doesn't fit elsewhere (i.e. support, howto, &c.). Criticism & praise & brainstorming & requests for explanation... this is where it goes when it's hot & ready for action! :-)

Away from the forum

Postby Tealc » Mon Mar 30, 2015 11:50 pm

Hi there ppl, so has most of you may have noticed, at least I hope so, I've been out of the forum stuff, twitter & android confs for quite a while now, this is due to the fact that I've changed my job :thumbup:

I was working has a Telecommunications Engineer for a big national company for about 4 years now, in February I was approached by one of the "big net devils" and after a lot of meetings and setting things right, I will start working there in the beginning of the month of April.

It's awesome I'm really happy about this and I would like to share that with you guys, do you know why?

Because CS is been my "family" away from home, it's been the place where I've found new persons with the same goals in life, It's the place where my faith in humanity was restored (DesuStrike knows why), where I've made good connections and had good discussions about a numerous things.

I think the next month is going to be super crazy, but I promise to keep up in the news and stay updated with all the awesome things CS staff & this community is doing in helping others protect them selves against all the wrongs in internet privacy :problem:

I've got a new Nexus 6 from my new boss today but unfortunately there is no rooting allowed (but it's a developer edition) so know I have to figure out how to use it really well, because I don't want some IT guy reading the texts I send my wife LOL, does any one here has any experience in Android app's to protect privacy while calling, sending texts, surfing the web, etc ....
I'm currently using TextSecure Private Messenger, K-9 and APG & Ostel: Encrypted Phone Calls, OpenVPN with CS for internet stuff. Should I change anything?

So once again, thank you all!

Congratulations man, on the new role and toys :)

I use everything on your list, except RedPhone rather than Ostel. One 'app' I'd recommend is X-Privacy, although not sure if you can install it on a none rooted phone.

Best of luck!

@Tealc

Grats on the new job. :D I also use TextSecure and RedPhone. I also use OrBot and OrWeb, although now that CS supports darknet access, they might be a little redundant. Still, they are useful for darknet access when the VPN token runs out. :) I hadn't heard of the other tools, so thanks for mentioning them.

This is all on a Nexus 4 running 4.2.2.

Congrats from me as well! Better late than never, eh? ;P

Let me give some of that praise right back at you. Yes I know and I'll never forget. Others might consider this a little thing but for me it also was a "faith in humanity restored"-moment. Or maybe now I just know who I can trust and where I can find them. :)

Also don't worry too much about inactivity. I must admit to my own disappointment that I probably have the grand lead position in the department of work caused inactivity. You did your part well and faithfully. Get your live in balance again and when you feel ready just come back. I was welcomed back several times and you will as well. Maybe I just take your temporary leave as a call of duty for me.

Hope to see you again soon, friend! :wave:
