'Shield Girl': The new face of Hong Kong's anti-extradition movement

Re: Chernobyl

Heh. The Alt-Text from today's xkcd cartoon:

You know when you can't hear your speakers, and you keep turning various volume controls up higher and higher in confusion, and then someone hits the mute button and there's a deafening blast of sound? That's basically what happened at Chernobyl.

Re: Future changes to Chrome

You can tweak it, and disable certain features per-site, but it seemed overly aggressive. I like uBlock Origin. The author is an insane privacy nut, but he's always extremely careful not to break any websites. So far I like the browser. All I use it is for Google account stuff, and all of that works...

Re: Future changes to Chrome

You need to turn off the built-in adblocker & shields for PCA (click the little orange shield to the right of the URL & click the slider "Shields up for this site"). Had the same problem with another site. I find the built-in shields a BIT too aggressive, although this would be a r...

Re: Coax install question

Like I said, you can probably do without the amp. Just get a barrel to bypass it and connect the modem straight to the cable from the pole. Check your signal levels again and make sure they're in the good range. https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/415VFPHvKML._SX425_.jpg

Re: Future changes to Chrome

I just installed Brave. It doesn't use your Chrome profile, but you can easily import your bookmarks, cookies, and most settings. I'm using it with their built-in ad blocker for now. Works fine.

Opera, Brave, Vivaldi to ignore Chrome's anti-ad-blocker changes, despite shared codebase

Well this is heating up. After promising a compromise, Google decided it's still doing this except for corporate users. All the other Chromium based browsers are threatening to fork and leave the functionality as-is and support all existing ad-blockers. Also, Brave & Opera both have a built-in a...

New Security Warning Issued For Google's 1.5 Billion Gmail And Calendar Users

Short story: It's a sophisticated phishing scam. Someone can send you an email to your Gmail account with a Calendar invitation attached. If you have "auto add invites" turned on then you would get a calendar invite added with a malicious link in it. It's targeted at Android phones, but it...
