Fun way to find random documents. Go to Google search, and search for

filetype:pdf the

Feel free to replace the word "the" with any other innocuous word. You'll get a bunch of random PDFs.

Another fun constraint:

filetype:pdf site:org the

This will return PDFs by ".org" domains (mostly nonprofits) so you get a bunch of random reports.

Also try

filetype:pdf "internal use only"

Oh and if you want to have your soul sucked away try

filetype:ppt "internal use only"

@riking Yeah that is a leaked document that Wired released for an article.

@darius lol
filetype:pdf "tlp red" -"traffic light protocol"

@dom @darius @er1n For German users, use

filetype:pdf "dienstgebrauch"


Pro-tip: Use startpage instead, then you can actually take all the fun without the bad feeling to have to visit google.

@jeybe On their page they say they are paying Google for the privilege of using their search results, so I'm not sure how that's much better than using a privacy respecting browser to use Google itself. I'm willing to learn why it is better, by the way, I just can't think of a compelling reason.

Ok, now I have a bad feeling. Will check that when I'm home.

Saw it now, too. Recommended startpage because you get googles results without tracking and personalization. May have to overthink this now.

But, quick test showed that duckduckgo, qwant and searx (dependent on chosen engines) are also able to apply that filters. Am aware that ddg and qwant have their bad sides, too, so don't see this as recommendation.

@jeybe @darius "ne pas diffuser" = "do not release" / DGSE = french secret service

@darius @jeybe I agree that Startpage sucks for exactly that reason.Not using Google and still pay them?No thanks.But my favorite search engine MetaGer supports the same queries:

Friend Camp

The decentralized web is about trust. You should only join Friend Camp if you personally trust Darius Kazemi with your social media data. You probably only have that level of trust if we are IRL friends or have been internet friends for a long time. Generally speaking this is a small, closed community. In the end, Darius is the arbiter of what is allowed here. If you don't have a good idea of the kind of behavior that flies with Darius, again, you probably shouldn't join this instance. In the interest of specificity, we do have a code of conduct and privacy policy which you should read. Friend Camp features several modifications that were requested by our users. * you can log in via any subdomain, which means you can log in to multiple accounts in the same browser session (for example, log in once on and then as another user on * they are no longer called "toots", they are now "posts" * if you have a locked account and you get a follow request, a reminder appears under your "post" button (on normal Mastodon mobile it is otherwise buried in a sub-menu and you might not see it for a long time) * the emoji dropdown is a neutral smiley face instead of the cry-laughing smiley @mentions are rendered as "@user" for a Friend Camp user and "@user@domain" for remote users. This helps clear up when you follow two people who have the same username on different servers. * there is a "never ask me again" checkbox on the confirmation for clearing your notifications -- more info here * When an mp3 link is in a post, we also embed an inline mp3 player. git commit here * 500 characters of profile text git commit here, requested by @deerful Important Bit from the Privacy Docs: If you want decent privacy (the info doesn't leave this server), the only way to do that is to set your account to private, only accept friend requests from other users, and only ever @ mention other users. Once you start talking to people on other servers, all bets are off. Any private message you send to someone on another server could be looked at by the admin of a different server. This is kind of like email: if you are on a private email server, and you send an unencrypted email to a gmail account, congrats, Google now has the content of that email.
