Any good Google Docs and Presentation alternat…

I used to be a very heavy Google user and pretty much used every consumer service they offered. After becoming more and more concerned with privacy I’m slowly making the shift away from all Google services. I’ve been able to find great alternatives to fulfill most of my needs, but I can’t find a great alternative to the web based Google Docs or Google Presentations. Any suggestions?

What should I do if personal information is le…

Some of my friends (in real life) know that I kind of worried about my personal information being leaked as well as privacy on the internet. I am worried they may actually do it as a joke, this wouldn’t be the first time something like this has happened. What should I do if this happens?

An inquiry of NoScript behavior and modern web…

I noticed on some websites, like Politico, that NoScript lists the domain itself and it’s marked as Not Trusted which my guess is that it is blocked. Would that signify there is no script running on that entry? But that would be false wouldnt it because of the engineering of the extension that is it detects scripts and lists them. So would it mean that the script doesnt affect presentation of the webpage we are visiting? Because I was able to read the webpage and after entrusting the domain entry the text was readable using the same format before entrusting the entry. Perhaps it was a specific layout script that didnt catch my eye? Thanks.

Using Windows Server 2016 instead of Windows 1…

So I have Windows 10 installed on my PCs – not as my main OS but rather for those applications, that don’t work on Linux.

Since I am a student in computer science, I have access to Windows Server 2016. I was thinking if Windows Server maybe sends less data home and comes with less bloatware preinstalled?

So would it be practical to install and use Windows Server 2016 instead of Windows 10 Pro? Or are there hiccups about this, that aren’t obvious?
