Can Tor safely (anonymity-wise) be used at the same time as other browsers & web apps on the same machine?

@ChocolateOverflow as long as the program is not attaching identifying information to your Tor packets (which is rather unlikely and would require hooking into the circuits/doing things on a network level), it shouldn't be an issue from an anonymity standpoint

@ChocolateOverflow You also have to be careful about not leaking your identity by mistake. I have, at least once, accidentally typed in stuff that should have gone into the Tor browser into my normal browser. That sort of mistake can be disastrous for anonymity

@JourneymanGeek I LOVE this channel. Time to clip his grinch feet is a line that always gets me :p

@JourneymanGeek it's just me or it looks basically the same before and after?
where all the fur went? I was expecting the dog to look smaller somehow... when I cut the fur from my dogs on the end of spring it looked like another breed of dog
well, that was 25-ish years ago...
 
1:45 PM
Its not a haircut
its removing all the "loose" fur
 
now it makes sense
I got an esp32 from aliexpress, I will use it to take timelapse pictures from a construction. I intend to make it take a picture, scan wifi APs to see if my phone is around and send all pictures to it if found. if not, it get to sleep again.
 
@ThoriumBR Why do you want to do that though?
Actually, come to think of it, timelapse photos of a construction site fro beginning to end would probably be pretty cool
Let me search for some online
 
it's gonna be my home, so it will be a nice project
constraints:
- it will be hung high up so taking it every week or so to get the sdcard is not practical
- it will be hung high up so taking it to recharge batteries is not practical
- it will be exposed to rain, wind, sun, so it will need a good enclosure
 
2:02 PM
Solar panels?
 
Yeah construction time lapses to me are cool to watch.
 
what I have in mind:
- take a picture, scan for my phone, deep sleep for an hour
- a pack of AA batteries for power
- a pickle jar or something for enclosure
 
You might want something better than a pickle jar
Wouldn't that mess with the picture?
 
a solar panel would mean more components: the panel, rechargeable batteries, BMS... it would add cost, and I expect this setup to get stolen after some time (it's Brazil, don't forget about that)
 
Nothing bad happens in Brazil
 
2:05 PM
Oh nothing fancy
 
@RoraΖ it depends on the format of the glass on the bottom. if there's anything flat enough for the 4mm lens, it will be fine
so a glass pickle jar hung to a pole is less enticing than something in a nice 3d printed enclosure with a solar panel on top
 
yeah for sure
I suppose you really don't need that much space for the lens
How often do you need to take a picture for the time lapse? Once or twice a day?
 
I am thinking about one every hour, so I can put on a 24 fps video and have a second of video per day
or get only pictures during the day (7am to 7pm) and have half a second per day... night shots with this camera are going to be indistinguishable from opening Paint and painting the entire canvas in black anyway
 
haha, yeah I imagine seeing the sun rise and set every second might take away from the general effect.
 
with the images in hand (probably timestamped) I could create a video with pictures taking at the same time of the day
the entire collection would be for storing and playing with, and a selection of the good ones would made into video later
 
2:17 PM
Kinda cool to have it as a digital "photo" in your house somewhere.
 
2:29 PM
I thought about having a digital picture frame showing how the house was this time of the year during the construction... it would be neat
 
3:02 PM
@ThoriumBR You could photoshop some of the pictures together; make an overlay that showcases the process
 
the construction will take an year, so I'll have enough time to think on all things I can do with that
as the pictures are all the same angle, I can put a slider to see the progress in time

That would look epic
