Hi -midnight,

The good news has a good side and a darker more sinister side to it. UsingIPv6 has a new quality as it is unique and stays the same and has a new feature that it can be used for location tracking. So more secure from one point of view, but easier for those that want to monitor your whereabouts all the time all of the time. Read about this novel use of IPv6 here: http://ip6.nl/location/

So the situation is getting ever better for the global players to do their thing, but harder for the individual to protect against certain aspects of what they do. ;) Have a nice day.

Here you can check your site for missing Google Analytics Tracking Code: http://www.gachecker.com/
The results for Avast Forum site shows that only Google Universal Analytics is being flagged, all others produce an x.

Easy Wifi Boost
Follow the next steps to boost your wifi signal considerably:

Drink a can of beer or soda.
Cut off the bottom of the can.
Cut off the top likewise. Note! Do not cut all the way round. Leave three to four centimeters at the top.
Cut the can lengthwise.
Place the can over the modem antenna or router modem. Your wifi signal will either double or be even three times stronger.

Enjoy,

Just been reading an article in UK MicroMart magazine about LiFi being the next major development the Li part is about the Light Spectrum being infinitely greater than radio band. Even works underwater better than radio waves. Unfortunately it is still years away.

With me it won't work, but here are 5 ways to come and "block" an adblocker.

1. Blocking in a blunt way as Yahoo tested on a minor scale: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-switch/wp/2015/11/23/yahoo-escalates-the-war-on-ad-blockers-by-keeping-people-out-of-their-own-e-mail/
2. Buy off ads with a service like Adieu: http://www.adieu.io/
3. Buy from Blockers like with Acceptable Ads by ABP.
4. Abuse root certificates like Lenovo did with a BHO from Superfish. This one backfired grand time, Superfish went broke.
5. A polite request to whitelist the site for the Adblocker used. Some reward the whitelisting user with a nice picture.
Like your teacher did at school when you had learned your psalm verses by heart  ;)
Yes some treat ads like a religion...  ;D

I still would not lower the adblock visors on all 5 mentioned counts as no-one has given a 100% guarantee that unblocked ads could come  completely malware free. So in order to go without mal-ads I block all.

Hi polonus:

I'm "enjoying" your first link quite a bit, but your second link goes to a 404 Not Found error. Should be: http://www.scamvoid.com/

Nice bookmarklet to add: http://www.phpied.com/quirks-bookmarklet/  Code Source: Stoyan Stefano
will tell you whether or not the browser renders your page in Standards Complaiance Mode or Quirks Mode. The bookmarklet will figure this out for the page as well as for all the frames (and their frames) recursively. Enjoy!

P.S. For your information the apge you are looking at here is in CSS1Compat, but this message is BackCompat and cannot be seen!  ;)
