If you’re interested in helping out, I pay about $350/year to host infosec.exchange, not including my time. I have about $30/year in donations. You can donate here: https://liberapay.com/Infosec.exchange/
Note: don’t feel bad about not donating. The service will still be here. I am fortunate to be in a position to provide the service. But I get the angry stare from my wife now and then when she asks me about the charges 😂
We know the bugs are coming. We just don't know when.
Throughout the month of August, every donation to Tor will be earmarked for smashing bugs 👾
This work is critical to keeping Tor strong.
Your donation can help us be prepared for what bugs may come, and in turn, we can better help millions of people around the world stay safe online and keep an entire ecosystem of tools healthy: http://donate.torproject.org
Okay, I've tried everything else, let's see what happens here. I'm a 56yo IT professional currently facing age discrimination in the job market. My skills are proven and broad. I can do operations, project management, service delivery; am versed in multiple OSs, monitoring systems, ticketing platforms. I'm a technical writer and published author. I'm willing to relocate pretty much anywhere for a job that pays enough to cover my mortgage. I need employment by Sept 30. CV on request. #job #dayjob
