@krruzic yeah, the point of getting off of mint.com is to stop giving access to my financial data to evil financial institutions who do things like deliberately help the GOP create tax loopholes for the rich...

@derle that looks awesome. I didn't see it because it was "below the fold" on alternativeto.net/software/min

I'll hafta give it a try.

Wanted: self-hosted alternative to mint.com, with the ability to automatically import transaction details.

I'd probably settle for csv import/export if I can script it up with, say, selenium.

@richdecibels Also in a similar vein, Primitive Technology. youtube.com/channel/UCAL3JXZSz

He does the same trick as Mr Chickadee (new to me, thanks!) of putting extra info in the subtitles. Very nice before-bed relaxation videos.

That project might either be a joke or simply dead. The corresponding github repo has no plugin, and there's nothing on the chrome store (obviously).

The concept is sound, though; it's trivially easy to fake tracking data, and only a little bit harder to build a tracking token sharing platform (to deliberately screw with analysis that links tracking tokens to location or other data).

@interneteh I've had some decent luck with remotelyawesomejobs.com and indeed.com with custom filters. The former is curated just enough to prevent the worst crap from getting in, but the latter yields a greater number of acceptable results. Both will do email and/or RSS.

@sir Yeah, I have a whole separate firefox install with that addon for doing Sleeping Giants work. That and a spider makes for rapid tracking profile acquisition without having to be exposed to an excessive amount of Breitbart.

A Firefox addon that appends nonsense tracking parameters (?utm, clickid, etc) to most requests, just to poison the data collected by trackers.
