i found maidsafe via a commentlink
ive spent time reading the webpages etc
but I am still mystified and utterly lost.
Im like many people, i use a pc still running XP its not a very special or powerful one.
i was contemplating loading a Linux program to move from windoze as 8 or 10 are beyond me and my pc .
I dont understand if allowing Maoidsafe to be using my pc for storing stuff costs me in my net useage allowance from my IP
i guess it has to?
some of us have limited gig.
so will this work for us?
you talk about storage
I download stuff and save what i want to my pc
I dont use the cloud thing cos i figure its owned and not private or safe anyway.
bypassing bigbrother and all the snoopy bits to resell your info appeals in a big way however.
i had a wordpress blog but thats free anyway, i guess thats sort of cloudish?
and no matter how many times i read about the “coins” that arent real i dont understand how to even get an account let alone how one would use it in the real world.
i surely am not the only one who likes the idea of getting away from the huge monopoly controllers of the web its content and spyware and big brother
just cant grasp how us older folks with little tech savvy can be a part of this to help it grow.
so much info is already “owned” and pay to read /paywalled
how will this free any of that up?
can it at all?
thanking you all for being patient
