Article updates – 31-Oct-2018

The Firefox Configuration Guide for Privacy Freaks and Performance Buffs was heavily updated again. The biggest change was the re-introduction of uMatrix in addition to uBlock Origin. I dropped the former quite a while back thinking that uBO could handle everything sufficiently enough, but that’s not the case. Much other information was overhauled as well.

The Firefox Tweaks and Fixes and Styles and Things article was also updated again. I added a couple things including a warning about using the sidebar CSS. If you happen to be using that code, or any style that auto-opens/closes the sidebar, please read the warning.

Article update: Firefox Search Engine Cautions, Recommendations

The article, Firefox Search Engine Cautions, Recommendations, underwent significant changes to be in line with newer versions of Firefox, particularly the section dealing with sanitizing the default search plugins. I also uploaded new versions of my pre-sanitized search.json.mozlz4 files, the larger of which contains 39 search engines.

Article update: Las Vegas Shooting 1-Oct-2017

After reading the majority of the recently released final police report by the LVMPD, i decided to update my article on the Vegas shooting. There isn’t much that was changed and nothing earth-shattering, other than i removed the entire section regarding the 134-135 hotel room adjoining door because i think my speculation regarding the explosive breech was unfounded.

Other than that, there were bits of information that were confirmed in the final report and i made a lot of minor edits and did some polishing.

New article: Non ‘Fake News’ news sources worth looking at

I wrote a new article for those seeking reputable news sources. In light of all the censorship taking place at YouTube, Google, Twitter, Facebook, etc., i think it’s worthwhile compiling a list of people and organizations that publish generally trustworthy news and commentary. I say “generally” because no news source gets everything right all the time.

So please go ahead and read Non ‘Fake News’ news sources worth looking at and if you have any comments or sources you’d like added, let me know. You need not be logged in to comment.
