Screenshot Captor / Re: Google Drive Option
« on: December 23, 2018, 09:14 AM »
Easiest way I know of to do this would be to use Google Drive's Backup and Sync program.

During the install and setup of it it asks which folders you wish to sync.  Just choose to include your screenshot folder

I've never heard of such a thing in web programming, where the pics and other elements are not embedded within the page's code - would that be even possible? -, but linked, for separate download indeed (i.e. all the pic or other code is within its own, dedicated file), be that from the same server or from others

Yes it is possible and used most the time
<img src="example.png" />
the page code does not include the image directly although that is possible too.

Embedding the image would be more like this
<img src="data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAAZAAAADSCAMAAABThmYtAAAAXVB" />
Lets assume the web developer didn't base64 encode all his images. When loading a web page your browser opens up a few http/https connections to download/stream the resources (The browser downloads a stream of bytes for the image in this case)

Now the same can be done with javascript scripts
<script src="./ads.js"></script>

Now an adblock program of some kind may assume that ads.js contain well ads and prevent the browser from requesting the resource.
The server doesn't need to know if the resource was requested or not.   Assuming ads.js is an adblock detector script; if the ads.js was requested then the browser would execute the javascript and remove the content dynamically that shows the real page content vs the adblock in use content.  Only when that "fake ad" script gets loaded does the real content get shown.

While there will be exceptions to this, it is the general basis on how to detect adblock is to leverage the blocklists and load fake ad scripts that when blocked from being downloaded and executed the content doesn't show.

Now to the discussion about AdGuard. 
I noticed that some adblock detectors will still pick it up others won't.  Also the https filtering works by MITMproxy and installing its own root certificate into the system.

Correct, I'm using the context menu's copy link/copy shortcut options for the test, not the select and copy method.

Interesting that Edge and IE will convert it when copying it that way.

Actually the point I was driving at is the Windows shell itself fell for the exploit when I put the link on the Windows Clipboard and pasted it into the FireFox address bar. FF never got a chance to pass/fail, it was just being used for an edit field.

Case in point, copy the link to the clipboard and paste it into Notepad … It comes off the clipboard as

I really don't believe this is the case as other browsers fail (pass) when copying the link that way.  Also since copying from URL bar doesn't do it also its more of just the "copy link" feature in Edge and IE.  I tested in chrome as 3rd party browser and it doesn't convert it before it goes to clipboard.

Jack and jack stands are useful too, an get a floor jack for pretty cheap.

But basic things like plugs wires, oil, air filter, radiator fluid, transmission filter are all good things to know.

I'm not a car person either however I do know how to do all the things listed. Thanks to youtube and actually doing it

Costwise a plugs and wires dealship wants $300 to do, can easily do it for <= $100

Only thing is have to take the oil and such for proper disposal your self.

I'm going to guess T-Mobile as that's what they use for 4G areas that do not support LTE yet or if device doesn't support LTE.  Just a guess.
