hey /g/, I was recently given a couple of old thinkpad R40s by an old couple and I wanted some suggestions for what to do with them.
I already know its futile to try to upgrade to modern standards, which is a shame; because business 80's aesthetics.
I've already seen someone rig an R40 to make international calls like a magicjack, but I'm not interested in that sort of stuff.
in short; wat do?
Okay... I need some opinion's...
I've done fake "firmware upgrade" social engineering wifi attacks before, except I did it manually. (When I was doing it wifi phisher and the like didn't exist.) Now that wifi phisher and the like exist it makes no sense to spend the extra time doing it manually...
When doing it manually no one bats an eye. When using wifiphisher and the like, people freak out and call me a worthless skiddie.
Another point is why do we create scripts/applications if it's only "socially acceptable" for the author/contributors to use them.

to make the lardass sysadmins and managers shit their pants and hopefully start caring about security

Many times I heard opinions that if someone is concerned about privacy at all, they should not use a smartphone at all. Why is that? Can't smartphones be set up properly to be private and secure?
It depends on what level of privacy you're looking for. Either way, the situation is much better than years ago. Now we have F-Droid, LineageOS, Firefox Mobile with support for extensions. Setting a VPN with OpenVPN on Android is easier than on a PC.
However, if the level of security you want/need includes hiding your location from your carrier and/or the government, yeah, no way to fix that. Mobile phones (not only smartphones) need to guess your location to choose the closest tower to handover. Then you can only hope the carrier doesn't log it

what's with the lag in firefox? Sometimes I can't even scroll a page, and can't type or copy and paste
Google says it all.
What's the comfiest language to write small system utilities? Examples include task managers, init system, hardware sensors etc.
I'm thinking C but it's really not all that productive. However there are many existing APIs that kinda make up for it.
C++ is a hot mess (and don't even try pulling "C++XY magically makes all problems" go away bullcrap)
For graphical frontend I'm thinking about using Rust. However GTK looks very counter-intuitive. The only time I touched GUI is back when I was using Processing.
>task managers, init system, hardware sensors
I wouldn't call those "small system utilities". A small system utility is cat, ls, grep... C was basically written for these and the most common implementations are still in C, but whether it's the "comfiest" in 2017 is another question.

So I had pic related for many years for playing emulators on my phone, and with my sister finally upgrading her dumbphone to a OP5 last week I gave it to her.
