Privacy is something very central in my life therefore I have tried tried securing my presence on the Internet one step higher. I used to only have all my data through a VPN (semi-private — I requested a specific location and was given a dedicated VPN only for myself through a company — and tunneling it through only the VPN may be sufficient for most people, but I want extra.

Hardware firewall + router + software firewall then comes outgoing connection to the world: socks5 (gondor) > VPN (semi-private) > public socks5 (any I wish to use).
I’m very happy with this set up. I’m using VPN (custom) from HideMyAss:
It costs about 60 bucks for seven months, something like that. I never look at the price: if I want something I’ll buy it. That’s it.
