`A year here and he still dreamed of cyberspace, hope fading nightly. All the speed he took, all the turns he'd taken and the corners he cut in Night City, and he'd still see the matrix in his dreams, bright lattices of logic unfolding across that colourless void... The Sprawl was a long, strange way home now over the Pacific, and he was no Console Man, no cyberspace cowboy. Just another hustler, trying to make it through. But the dreams came on in the Japanese night like livewire voodoo, and he'd cry for it, cry in his sleep, and wake alone in the dark, curled in his capsule in some coffin hotel, hands clawed into the bedslab, temper foam bunched between his fingers, trying to reach the console that wasn't there.'Stop by ∞kun's /cyber/, the schwayest place in cyberspace.

I remember listening to Darude Sandstorm and trying to install Photoshop for free as a kid, but I also installed 23049 viruses in the process of doing so. But thankfully you won't have to relive that experience to listen to some music.

The Gentooman's Library
The official Gentooman's Library. A truly massive collection of books, covering everything from basic HTML to artificial intelligence. Availability varies, so here is a magnet link.
Magnet link for the Do/k/ument
A massive torrent of stuff related to guns and shit, courtesy of /k/. There is no reason in the modern world to not be prepared to defend yourself. I'm not responsible for what you do with this information, and there's better stuff out there for people who are new to firearms, but this is a good resource. It's not being fully seeded, but the only thing missing is some shitty magpul videos.
(GNU/)Linux for Beginners
You can't let the man get you down, man. Use a freedom-respecting OS. This should help with the basics.

Someone in IRC said this is very comprehensive, and it looks pretty good, so enjoy. Probably better than the link above, since I just looked up "linux for beginners" and copied the first relevant link
Linux Workstation Security Checklist
Exactly what it says it is. If you want a much more secure Linux setup, this is worth checking out. Don't stress if you can't set everything up perfectly, it's better than using Windows 10.

- - - [ Phone ] - - -
Let your phone be a tool for you, not a tool for the NSA.Instead of using flagship Android or Apple phones, consider buying a Pinephone or a Librem 5. Both come with killswitches for Wifi, Bluetooth, and GPS.
Use a freedom-respecting ROM like Replicant.
postmarketOS is another option that respects your freedoms.
LineageOS is the most widely known custom ROM for your phone. The successor to Cyanogenmod.
GrapheneOS is a security focused ROM for Pixel phones.
Never use Gapps or Google Play! Use Fdroid instead.

The Well-Cultured Anonymous
From back before anything to do with "anonymous" was associated with edgy 14-year-olds wearing Guy Fawkes masks. A guide to help /b/tards improve themselves (i.e. not be fat permavirgin neckbeards). Still relevant to you, you NEET fuck.

This site is pretty schway, some neat info here.

Becoming a Sysadmin
Are you a cynical fuck that hates people? Do you have no qualms about working for The Man, knowing that being a cyberpunk won't fill a retirement fund? Do you want to get paid for doing shit that you probably do anyway? Would you forgo the soft caress of a woman in favor of the cold metal of server racks and the humming of fans? A position as a Sysadmin (or Systems Administrator) might be just the thing for you!
