Made a few small changes to both the Firefox Configuration Guide for Privacy Freaks and Performance Buffs and the The Firefox Privacy Guide For Dummies!. There's no need to revisit them if you've already read them, but there is one IMPORTANT addition i want to highlight: Neither of my Firefox configuration guides should be used with the Tor browser! Doing so can cause a serious risk to your privacy.
I should've made that clear long ago, however i personally don't use Tor and so i wasn't really aware of the risks associated with installing certain add-ons with the Tor browser (which is Firefox, or a derivative thereof). Plus i'm not sure how how compatible the 'ghacks' user.js is with the Tor browser, much less my personal supplements.
Julian Assange's letter to independent British journalist Gordon Dimmack:
I have been isolated from all ability to prepare to defend myself, no laptop, no internet, no computer, no library so far, but even if I do get access it will be just for half an hour with everyone else once a week. Just two visits a month and it takes weeks to get someone on the call list and the Catch-22 in getting their details to be security screened. Then all calls except lawyer are recorded and are a maximum 10 minutes and in a limited 30 minutes each day in which all prisoners compete for the phone. And credit? Just a few pounds a week and no one can call in.
A superpower that has been preparing for 9 years with hundreds of people and untold millions spent on the case. I am defenceless and am counting on you and others of good character to save my life
I am unbroken albeit literally surrounded by murderers. But the days when I could read and speak and organise to defend myself, my ideals and my people are over until I am free. Everyone else must take my place.
The US government or rather those regrettable elements in it that hate truth liberty and justice want to cheat their way into my extradition and death rather than letting the public hear the truth for which I have won the highest awards in journalism and have been nominated seven times for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Truth ultimately is all we have.
I updated the Subscribe page with a new category; Israel. Anyone who is subscribed to 'All' categories will automatically receive post notifications for the new category.
Now, while i was looking at my subscriber list i noticed several people subscribed to email announcements for the '12bytes Website' category and i suspect they may not know what this category is for. The reason they may not know what the category if for is because i apparently don't know what it's for either, or more accurately, i sometimes forget its intended purpose even though i'm the one that did the intending. Those subscribing to the 12bytes Website category probably want (i'm guessing) to subscribe to the 'All' category instead which will send email notifications for everything, site-wide (all categories). From now on, the 12bytes Website category will be used only to announce technical stuff regarding the website, such as this post.
So if you're one of those that subscribed to the 12bytes Website category, you may want to change your settings which you can do from the email announcement you got for this post.
