The recent ,as of now still uncontrolled, fire in the eastern part of Arizona
Is also effecting us here in Central New Mexico and beyond.
As you can tell from the following photo just taken a few minutes ago, The Manzano Mountains are almost obscured
by the smoke coming all the way from Arizona. Those with breathing problems are starting to feel the effects.  :'(
We came fairly close to this area on our way back from San Diego

The U.S. Government Asks For Data On Google Users More Than Other Country
Brazil comes on second. India on third.

During the second half of last year, Google received 14,201 requests for data on its users and it complied with 76% of those requests, according to its Transparency Report.

The U.S. government asks for user data more than any other country, with 4,601 requests. Of that, Google complied fully or partially 94% of the time.

The data requests are normally related to criminal investigations.

Good for Google. I hope the information they supplied helps in the conviction of those guilty of a crime. :)

Just discovered a setting in Firefox, not really sure how long it has been there, but I've only just noticed it trying to change a setting.

Thanks to google I found this:
http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/how-do-i-stop-websites-tracking-me

At first, I thought great, then...

Quote from: kb article
When you turn on the Do-not-track feature, Firefox tells every website you visit (as well as their advertisers and other content providers) that you don't want your browsing behavior tracked. Honoring this setting is voluntary — individual websites are not required to respect it. Websites that do honor this setting should automatically stop tracking your behavior without any further action from you.

So it may not be as useful as I first thought...though something to have checked, for those that will  honor it.

Anyone know when it was introduced?

I have that filter already ;)

Just thought it was interesting, although Asyn beat me to it ;D

Shame it isn't as useful as it could be really...

Space shuttle Atlantis in historic final lift-off
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-14077893

The last ever space shuttle to make the journey into space.

One of my favorite engineering feats that I think will not be bettered for a while (if at all)

Thanks for posting. I missed it this morning.
Haven't learned how to be in two places at the same time yet.  ;D
