Doomsday preaching isn't anything new.
We are all old enough to remember how the world was going to end when we reached 2000.
Everything in moderation has always been good advice. That goes for the green footprint as well.

Shoebox is Shutting Down May 22nd
Shoebox is (was) a photo storage and sharing service.
If you use the service, you need to download your stored photos.
https://app.shoeboxapp.com/app?open=export


They state that it only takes 5 min. Guess that's if you have very few photos
I have 15434 pictures so it will take quite a bit longer. :)

And if you are a Firefox user, it does nothing anyway (Fx does not support the cache control headers).

Strange how they can advertise it as such.

Quote from: Extract from article
Boostaler is a browser extension for the Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome web browsers that is designed to speed up web browsing by extending cache periods. The extension may work with other browsers based on Firefox or Chrome code as well.

There was me thinking that the user could set the caching in firefox. Well more of not clearing the History when closing firefox, presumably this would clear all caches ?

Personally when I close firefox I have it clear

Screencast-O-Matic and Privacy Badger

I've used a program called Privacy Badger ( https://www.eff.org/privacybadger ) for some time.
Apparently, something they changed on their end is the culprit that's causing a problem by blocking any screenshots taken via Screencast.
As soon as I disabled privacy Badger, all the missing screenshots returned and I was also able to use the link in my post.
I'm sure I'm not the only person that uses PB and am sure it's affecting those users the same way.
If you're using PB, you will not see any of screenshots that I've posted over the past year(s)
You also aren't going to see any screenshots posted by anyone else that may be using Screencast.
Until the problem is resolved, you can add https://screencast-o-matic.com/ to the safe sites in Privacy Badger.
Let's hope it doesn't take them too long.

Thanks to those that contributed the pictures. It was my pleasure to come up with the captions.
The pictures were collected between 2010 and 2012
