3/21    Browser Plug-In you must get: Ghostery. It gets rid of a bunch of
        ad trackers on a web site, resulting in really fast load times.
        For example, a typical media site will require 10-15 trackers
        (you know, those URLs that track your activities so they can
        target you better). Ghostery kills them.
        \_ This has been working well for me, and breaks fewer things
           than NoScript etc.

5/18    On my Win7 machine, I've been using a PuTTY ssh session to soda as a
        proxy for my FireFox to bypass my company's OpenDNS when I visit and so on.  It has been working fine for a long while.
        However, in the past couple weeks or so, my FireFox would either take
        several minutes to load the page, or failes to load it after several
        minutes.  I haven't changed any settings on my Win7 machine.  Rebooting
        didn't help either.  Is there any change on soda recently that could
        cause this?  Thanks.

           than 3.6.x, but do they use more memory?  Thx.
           \_ Newer Firefox versions use less memory too:

        An unusual visualization of browser market share from 2002-now
        \_ 1. Is it coincidence that it looks so much like the Firefox logo?
           2. Is Chrome eating away Firefox's share?
           \_ Chrome's user base is pretty much the same user base
              as Firefox user base, and to some extent, Safari. The
              reasaon is you're not going to convince a large %
              of IE users to switch to anything else.
        \_ Is this about number of installations, or number of web accesses
           originated from these browsers?

10/1    I am thinking of installing firefox on soda under my home directory.
        Will this make me a hozer?
        \_ Possibly. I wonder if we should have another VM for that...btw,
           I remember someone saying they're glad we're not on FreeBSD
           anymore, but last I checked, a bunch of our stuff is on FreeBSD,
           but our login server is not.
        \_ Installing it would not make you a h0zer, but running it might.
        \_ Why do you want to do this?
            \_ I hear that I can get some journal articles for free
               if I'm on the inside of a university, but would have
               to pay for them if I went there directly.
               \_ That would be filed under 'being a hoser'.   Get real.  Also
                  What kind of nerd are you?  Don't run firefox on Soda.
                  Download/write a perl www proxy, or better yet SSH to
                  Soda and open a socks proxy that you can run Firefox on
                  your local machine through.
              \_ Just use lynx + curl to do the same thing.
              \_ Use ssh -D, you idiot.
                 \_ 1. Can I do the same with PuTTY in XP?
                    2. How do I tell FireFox to use this?
                    Thanks.  -- another idiot, !OP
                    \_ Yes, Putty can do it too. Dynamic proxy on port 8080.
                       Firefox natively supports SOCKS proxies.
                       \_ When my FireFox uses the "No proxy" setting, every
                          time I go to a site it goes through the DNS on the
                          company network which blocks some sites.  How do I
                          force FireFox to go through the "proxy" or "tunnel"
                          that PuTTY has just set up on the local machine?
                          -- PP
                          \_ set it to use socks proxy on whatever port
                             \_ Specifically, use "Manual proxy configuration".
                                Enter "localhost" for the SOCKS proxy, and
                                whatever port number you picked for the dynamic
                                port forwarding in PuTTY as the port number.
                                If you want DNS to go through the proxy too,
                                go to about:config, type "dns", and set
                                "network.proxy.socks_remote_dns" to true.
                                \_ It works!  The first few minutes I tried
                          or any other site, I
                                   only got a blank page and no error message.
                                   But when I try again now, it works!  Thank

9/4     Someone asked yesterday about the Obama/Ayers link.  It took me a while
        to find a link I was happy with, this one is ok.  This guy goes into
        excruciating detail about the Annenberg Challenge and CAC over a
        number of blog posts.  The full Annenberg documents were only recently
        released, and this post predates the release.  The documents are still
        being digested, so this is far from the final word.
        Anyway, it is pretty obvious that Obama and Ayers had a close working
        relationship for at least 6 years (the real relationship almost
        cetainly predates this), in which they funneled millions to Ayers'
        causes and students.  It's also quite obvious that Obama has been
        highly disingenous about this relationship, and many of his statements
        about it have been blatant falsehoods. ("Our kids went to school
        together", etc)
        \_ Yes, Obama supports terrorism and wants to KILL WHITEY.
        \_ It looks like Obama has really been trying to improve the schools,
           which is great. I think I am going to give him another $2300.
           \_ Might want to look into what he was spending that money on
              first.  The challenge itself was deemed an utter flop. $100mil
              down the hole.
              \_ Deemed an utter flop by who? This guy is not a reliable
                 The Annenberg Challange is hardly the radical far-left
                 proposal this guy makes it out to be.
                 \_ Sorry, it was a flop _in Chicago_. That is, it had no
                    effect on student performance in Chicago. Your link is an
                    overall evaluation, so not really interesting for this
                    Also, it was deemed a flop by the Consortium of Chicago
                    School Research (CCSR) in 2003.
                    \_ Yes, that is interesting. I will have to do some more
                       research. But I think it is amusing that an effort to
                       try and weaken the hold of the teacher's union is called

           and -1 megs for FF3.  The general problem with FF2 was it tended
           to leak memory over time.  For a desktop app, an extra 10 megs
           is minimal, but since people like to have long lived browser
           sessions, FF2's habit of slowing growing up to 2 gigs of memory
           is a real problem.

        \_ Why are they reinventing garbage collection?
           \_ Because Firefox is written in a non garbage collected language.
              Because Firefox includes an interpeter for a garbage collected
            language with some complicated object lifespan issues.
            Because there is more to reducing memory footprint than garbage
            Because implementing is not the same as reinventing.

                 \_ In the past javascript was used sparingly and reference
                    counting was easy and fast.  Yes there were leaks, but
                    once you closed a page the browser could just dump
                    dump everything associated with that page and move on.
                    It worked.  Doing a good mark and sweep gc is hard,
                    especially with how firefox handled javascript execution.

        \_ There's a dropdown tab selector thing. I hate the close button on
           tab deal, but that's easy to fix in about:config.
           What I really wish FF had was if you drag a tab off the window it
           becomes a new window with that tab. I think Safari and Opera
           do that now. FF creates a shortcut if you do that, how stupid.
        \_ The about:config for FF allows you to modify that behavior.  Look up
           browser.tabs.closeButtons (0 is close button only for current tab, 1
           is default, and 2 is no close buttons)

                    \- i dont think the failure-to-read is the lack of
                       quality fiction. also, i dont think reading pulp
                       fiction [at least for adults] is any different from
                       watching tv. reading the da vinci code is really
                       mentally the same as watching desperate hwives.
                       \_ I guess I disagree re the failure-to-read.
                          I used to try to find new fiction to read
                          whenever I went to the library, but it was
                          almost all universally bad (except for the
                          occasional mystery novel), so I've sort of
                          given up.
                          I agree re things like da vinci code. That
                          sort of crap is really fit only as kindling.
                         \_ So what, you already read all the old fiction?
                            I'd expect most new fiction to be rather bad,
                            as frankly most people don't really have much
                            to say but they say it anyway. If they can

                             is a separate question from "are people reading
                             less today than 20 years ago". if the first is
                             true it might explain the second, if it is true.
                             i dont have an opinion on #1. and i think #2 is
                             better explained by more competion ... like i

                                   per year (usually a practical/howto book).
                                   judging him differently because
                                   he read a james patterson mystery instead
                                   of watching dvds/tv would be silly. he'd
                                   be the same person. on the other hand,
                                   somebody who goes though 20 books a year
                                   including 5 "challenging" books would be

10/22   Using Windows XP Pro.  I got an Iomega external hard drive to use
        to backup my internal hard drive over a year ago.  I then installed
        the software.  Since then, whenever I start up my computer, the
        software would start up and then go to the background.  No problem.
        Today, for some reason, it starts up and then freezes up and doesn't
        respond.  I can manually end the process, but I can't actually get
        into the program, because it just freezes up when I start it up.  So,
        I'll have to manually end the process every time I turn on the
        computer and I can't actually use the program.  How can I stop it
        from starting up automatically (it doesn't seem to be there in the

           has been, never will be.  Let me rephrase my question.  Has mail
           been delivered to the extent that it normally would be, or is
