Does someone know a good way to make an executable check its own hash? I remember some old games used to do this to catch viruses.
But there is a catch: As soon as you attach the hash to the executables, you change the hash. :-O

Now, Mastodon is a great alternative to twitter - but are there other great Open Source Alternatives to Google, Facebook, Youtube, etc as well?

One I like is Diaspora* as a 'Facebook replacement'. It really has all I need and no ads! :-D
What I would love to discover is an alternative to Youtube. But I haven't found one yet.

Which great alternatives to commercial services do you know?
Let's collect them! :-)

I think my android phone has caught some malware. Is a factory reset enough to remove it?
