"Honestly, things which 10 years ago would have been the domain of crackpots is now 100% fact."
No. I keep hearing this but you guys must have lived on another planet. The fact that all governments sucked up just about all international communications dates back to the invention of the telegraph and maybe back to the mail.
Any idea that they were not monitoring all clear text transmissions over the internet frankly I find just dumb. As far as meta data that was always up for grabs.
False flag operations? That is in the realm of tin foil hats and crackpots. Frankly the rest of it is just common knowledge to anyone with a brain.

Actually I am impressed that it did see how similar Apes and people are. Honestly people getting upset over it are just a bit silly. The problem is people think that someone put person_of_african_descent == ape in the code and that is not true. The algorithm just confused one great ape with an expressive face with another. It is no more racist or intentional than the same system confusing a Camaro with a Firebird.

I think modifying the existing power supplies is probably the best way to go today. Replace the caps and possibly the voltage regulators with newer parts might be a really good way to go today.
I would suggest starting a project to create a modern PS that could be a drop in replacement for the old one. It could use a lot less power and be more reliable in the long run.

So any DNS you use could do this.
So isn't it logical to use one that is being run by a massive competent company that is already making huge profits and has the whole world watching them vs some small org that is just trying to make ends meet that no one is paying attention to.
Frankly if I was the CIA I would be intercepting traffic to the small oddball servers more than Google.

The star of riches is shining upon you.
