This website has grown to the point where there's too much stuff for me to deal with and so i'd like to solicit some help. The Firefox junk alone is getting to be a rather large burden.
I'd like my readers to be more involved and make this more of a community project, especially those that know more than i do about the stuff i write about. At the moment i could use help with Everything Firefox, as well as the Rescuing Israel content, the latter of which needs a lot of work. Then there's a lengthy series of articles about the dangers of vaccines that i've been toying with for over a year and is still no where near publishing.
If you have knowledge in these areas, or in alternative/natural healthcare, along with a desire to become rich and famous (major LIE!), then i'd really like to hear from you. Following are the benefits of an editor position here at 12bytes.org:
Pay: $0 Medical insurance: 1 box of (mostly unused) Band-Aids/decade Vacation: Virtual reality app, all expenses paid (by you) Expense account: $0.00000000000/yr. Knowing you're helping to educate others: $$$ PRICELESS $$$
I earn exactly nothing from this website, so it only costs me money to run. I'd be interested in monetizing it and sharing the earnings, but i am NOT interested anyone who want's to use it as an advertising platform for their own site (i've gotten several of these stupid offers and i ignore all of them). If you have some creative ideas as to how to monetize in an ETHICAL way that benefits readers, i'm open to discussing that, however i am primarily interested in improving existing content and adding to what is already here.
Categories and RSS feeds
If you want to subscribe to news feeds (RSS/ATOM), you will need a feed reader. Some web browsers and email clients have one built-in, however it may be rather rudimentary. If you would rather use a web browser extension, check the extension repository for your browser. For Firefox it is addons.mozilla.org (you can find my preferred feed reader here). There are also many stand-alone feed readers for whatever operating system you're using, whether it be Android, iOS, Linux, Mac, etc..
"We are committed to protecting your personal informa…"
You know when a "privacy" policy starts out with something like that, it's probably utter bull, right? Well this one is short and simple. The tl;dr (too long; didn't read) version: I'm a privacy advocate myself, so you're in reasonably good hands.
12bytes.org does not collect any personal information other than that which you willingly provide through the various contact forms and subscription options. Providing accurate information such as your real name and email address is never required, however if you choose to provide a fake email address, understand that it will not be possible to reply to your inquiry.
Any personal information which you choose to disclose will remain confidential and will never be provided or sold to any other party.
If you choose to submit a comment on an article or blog post, understand that the information you submit will be viewable by the public with the exception of your email address. It is therefore suggested that you avoid disclosing your real name if you wish to remain anonymous.
Web Server Logging
Similar to almost every website, 12bytes.org is powered by a fairly typical software stack which logs various information about your web browser, as well as your IP address. This information may be used for troubleshooting or analytical purposes. This data is never shared with anyone.
Please note:All 12bytes software products for Windows and accompanying support has been discontinued. I no longer use, nor encourage the use of proprietary operating systems, especially when such operating systems are specifically designed to spy on their users and make them the product. While i apologize to those who have used and enjoyed my software, i hope you are able to sympathize with my reasoning for discontinuing it. This article will better explain my position.
