Playing it safe

Nowaday with home securtiy available for a 20$ a month fee with free equipment installation from some companys I would suggest a home alarm . Also Health Canada told me that when My licence to grow comes in I should inform my local police show them my cards offer to provide them with duplicates of the records i will send to HC on request in this way the police see you are following the letter of the regulations and Its also quite possible to ask them to have any cruisers who are passing thru this neighbourhood to come down your street and park outfront for a few minutes and if possible do this daily . Also I would suggest spending 400$ on biometric deadbolt lock wich actually just reads your thumb print to unlock is actually very decent investment . As for myself every entrance door to the house has 2 dead bolts one middle the other one 2 feet below. After that I placed 2 deadbolts on the front and rear exits from my apt as well as 1 deadbolt on my grow room and 2 tungsten padlocks and 2 chains which are bolted to the doors to allow much more reinforcemtn. Also If its legal put your Licence number on your jars inside an out as well as use your printer to label the bud as MEdicinal marijuana not to be consumed by persons who this prescription was not intended for as the effects may be far more intense than average weed and around my area the people who sell will actually pay 5$ per govt packaging from medicinal marijuana this way they are able to mark the price up from $200 per ounce to $350 per ounce or higher and usually will just leave it in the jars which will make it easier for the police to identify as I have seen alot of dealers when they get ahold of medical grade they try to sell it at massive Prices and are likely to leave it in the jars it was found in.

You serious? So i have to surf this site through Tor and Privoxy or some variation of just to feel safe in this environment? Those are so slow and limit the functionality and ease of use of this site!

any workarounds that anybody have found that work a little quicker? I'm a big privacy advocate if you can't tell lol...

Im sorry if I've missed this but I have a question. If you use a proxy does that make you untraceable? I know all the packets received at icmag are going to come from that proxy but is that enough to make you untraceable. Is there still a way to pull up your subnet and/or your ip?

Is there a proxy that anyone knows of or settings that will enable a user to still use the text editor settings ie bold, italic, underline, quotes, smiley's etc.? because when i use my proxy I can't use any of that stuff and it sucks...

well its your choice i think ... BUT to be as safe as you can be .. i also recommend SSL + TOR/PRIVOXY :p

in most countries you are looking at lots of trouble if your internet connection is monitored by LEO .. and you post nice stuff here (pics !?!)

no it doesnt make you untraceable .. there is no such thing as 100% untraceability imho ... but you can reach a 99,9% if you're good :p

reasons:
- proxy might log IP's / destination websites
- your internet connection might be monitored and logged
- prolly more, but these are the most important that come to my mind

if you use firefox .. there is an extension called: FOXYPROXY (allows to define different proxies for different websites and much more ..), when i use that all works fine ..

or use tor/privoxy .. portabletor package + torbutton in firefox .. easy install

Thanks for the info growcodile. I appreciate it, these are all - sort of non-technical - things that I just didn't consider but should have been obvious.

That having been said does anyone know what sort of monitoring policies ISPs use for this kind of thing if any? I know they monitor the type of traffic so they can manage the network by bandwidth throttling or whatever, but does this extend to what sort of webpages youre visiting (ie icmag) or is it simply the type of traffic (underlying protocol) that they monitor? Thank you.

well imho it depends on the ISP you use, but there is technology to inspect all kind of types of traffic, also the URLS you are blazing etc .. in many cases nobody will look at your traffic, but if they do you better use anything you can to raise security

I've never heard of an ISP reporting anyone to LEO. ISP's don't have time or motive to spy on their subscribers as far as I know, unless they are forced by law to do so.

LEO surveillance of ISP subscribers supposedly requires a wiretap warrant, but the Patriot Act and the FBI's DCS1000 sniffer (formerly known as Carnivore) cloud the water, if federal agents and local LEO cooperate to surreptitiously spy on people. Local LEO I'm certain do as much hacking and online stalking of suspects as they can manage, but I don't think it's worth worring about unless they're already on your ass for something major. Generally speaking it's best to avoid incriminating yourself online. I might post about getting high on a Canna site, but there's no way I'd upload a grow, even a legal med grow. I just don't want them fvcking with me.
