If I use Tor on
the Spider's Web I was cautioned that I need to take measures to encrypt it. So,
using the Tor Browser Bundle from a USB volume, how does one go about
encrypting? And what does one encrypt?
The first question
I had that was answered was that I could simply look at the URL and add an "s"
to http. Thanks to Runa. So, since I have to do a lot of assuming, this would
be before clicking or hitting return for going there. Duh, right? But, then
what happens if it is changed back to http without an "s"? Does this
mean that particular site doesn't do httpS and my anonymity has been
I think the first
part is correct, that the site doesn't, but I'm not sure about anonymity.
Maybe, my question
should be, more exactly, what is it I am
to encrypt and how do I do that?
Am I to encrypt
the USB drive, the OS, which I cannot do at an internet cafe. I have to do all
my web stuff at internet cafes now, because personal internet service here is
very poor. Plus, if I use Tor for that (the regular Spiders Web), which I
really haven't done, then I am able to access some regular, normal sites that
are blocked. They block many here and for the vast amounts of research that I
do, and I do a lot of it, I need Tor just to get my work done in a reasonable
amount of time as far as finding information.
You'd be surprised
at what is blocked. Well, maybe you
wouldn't. Some is so trivial, or seems that way, but to someone, somewhere, and
somewhere in their reptilian brain, they are lacking cells to think critically
with. They teach drawing here only one way. Can you imagine? There is only one
way to draw the human head, eyes, etc. It's frustratingly interesting, dumbing
and numbing in the overall, long-term effects. I didn't know we all look like
that, but we do!
Also, if I'm not
worried about losing too much functionality by using NoScript, is it possible
to put NoScript into the Tor Browser Bundle with Firefox? Does it attach itself
to Firefox like a leech? You know what I mean, I hope. :)
You people are
just so brilliant, understanding this stuff. You all must have come from
another planet, but I, crawled. This I am sure of.
