DISCLAIMER: I said without your significant other knowing, but if they're linux savvy, you're doomed, at least with this guide.

The tools you'll need:

  • Screen
  • a console bittorrent client
  • a website to download torrents from (I had listed one site in particular in an earlier try at this post, but it was moved to the dustbin. I guess you're on your own with this part).

  1. Make a hidden directory. This fools most linux noob SOs. You'll want to make it sound somewhat innocuous if the unthinkable happens and the SO finds your porn stash. I made one in my homedirectory like this:
    Code:

    cd
    mkdir ._backup


  2. Download some torrents that sound interesting, and put them in our hidden directory.

  3. Get the tools. I like Shad0w's experimental bittorent client, but any that has a console mode should suffice.
    Code:

    emerge bittornado screen -v


  4. Let's say we have a torrent named "prettygirlsfullyclothed.torrent", and it's in our hidden directory. Now we start downloading:
    Code:

    screen
    cd ._backup
    btdownloadcurses.py --max_upload_rate 8 --max_connections 30 prettygirlsfullyclothed.torrent


    NOTE: I set the max upload rate and max connections according to what works well on my system without affecting my web browsing and general net usage. Your mileage may vary.

  5. Now hit CTRL-a and d to detach the screen from your current console.

  6. ...
  7. Profit!


Now if you want to see how your download is going, open a console and type:
Code:

screen -r

For a tutorial on screen, go here.

OTHER STUFF:

  • If you want to hide your web activities and you use firefox (I've never used regular mozilla so I don't know if this works in it or not) you can make another profile and use that one. To do this start firefox with the -p option to open the profile browser, and make a new profile (again, you want to make it something innocuous sounding). When you want to start browsing for porn, start firefox with the -p option, followed by your profile name. For example:
    Code:

    firefox -p profilename


I'm sure there are a lot more complicated or clever ways to cover your tracks, I was shooting for easy to use and straightforward in this guide. Anybody else with good tips, share them!

ok... good howto. This will come in handy :P

Another tip: download to

.__backup/lpt1/lpt1/

This way, if you have FTP open, Windows clients won't be able to connect. (at least IE, don't know about aceftp or something)

Very handy, gotta try it out sometime, especially with Azureus eating a lot of valuable CPU time.

Nobody downloads p0rn under Linux. By using this OS all us get incledible sex appeal automagically (well you need to compile it first).

Major bug in this topic.

What about viewing said materials without SO discovering, surely a section should be added on second X sessions and things of that nature!

There is also a nice command line tool (perl script) for downloading some, eh, visual representations of less than fully robed females (or males, we don't discriminate). It's good for those times when you don't have internet access in your own privacy. It's also quite much faster than simple browsing in collecting lots of pictures.


http://fetchgals.sourceforge.net/

One caveat, though. The default list of sites it comes with have some very, very unique ones, too. So you better prune down those lists if you don't want to see things that might shock you.

Code:
$ emerge -s fetchgals
Searching...   
[ Results for search key : fetchgals ]
[ Applications found : 0 ]


Well, wouldn't anyone make an ebuild for that? :D

(I don't know how to do it, otherwise this post would contain the code ready to use.)

Fine, I'll admit it.
I may have seen a pornographic movie.

Might be worth trying to find a way to encrypt the pr0n rather than just putting it into a hidden folder. If somone was to do a locate for somthing that happens to match one of your files you could be in troubble. I know its possible to make file with mount that can be mounted like a drive and im sure there is some way to encrypt them the same way. That way even if they find the file they won't know was it is or how to use it, and if they do then they would need to know your decryption key :)

I found a link here with instructions: http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Loopback-Encrypted-Filesystem-HOWTO.html

Just make sure you don't run updatedb with it mounted, rember to unmount it and that any histroy files (~/.bash_histroy) are wiped. Might be worth making a script that asks you for the key rather than doing it on the command line in a prompt, that way the key doens't show up in the history at all, and even if somone attempted to recover the harddrive data nothing should show up.

This should stop your p0rn stash from being discoverable even if the person has a high level of linux knollage and suspects the file is suspicious.

Might be a bit extreem for pr0n but i figure if your going to do somthing do it right :)

Also worth turning off your browser cache/history stuff in your other firefox profile.

i would prefer getting another drive, maybe 20gb should be good enough for ur pr0n urges, mount it under some random location in /usr/ and unmount when ur not using it :).

you could also open ur case and hide ur magazines in there if u have one of those cases without an acrylic window, that way theyre all toasty and warm for you when you need them the most :)

screen mplayer -vo aa porn.avi
In case of emergency: detach!
perhaps add -ao null for enhanced security :P

Hey if your SO did 'ps -ef' wouldn't they see the names of the files you're d/l?

Another good way is to just make another account. call the account "backup" or something?

anyway, then you can log in to that account whenever you need your porn fix

also, make sure yuo change your umask ;) hahaha

This works too: put "export HISTFILESIZE=0" in ~/.bashrc ;)

screen can be used for this or for someting more usefull to like , taking this example , see how you torrents go while you are at work or school , just ssh the machine and resume your screen session, screen -r, or it might came in handy when you need to ssh a machine and you want to run a program that doesn't allows you to exit the ssh session , just create a screen session or create a new terminal window ctrl+a->c , ctrl+space to cicle bettwen ,detach and done, exit. Sceens runs the programs outside screen so they will show up when you do a ps so you can kill a process without killing the all session.

You can also use aaxine inside screen to view pr0nmovies very handy and works on remote terminals.
That's the UNIXway to watch pr0n on your remote univercity cluster.

sounds silly but better way of using screen IMHO:

Code:
screen -S torrent

then run it inside and detach with CTRL-A-D
then to re-attach run:
Code:
screen -x torrent


using this way helps with multiple screen sessions as you can easily name them :) no more having to open all the sessions to find the one you wanted.
