Welcome  smiley

DC is indeed great and the recent numbers up near the logo are one important testament to that.

How does this work?
Does the site "still try to load", or does it crash "hard and fast"?

Rather than SomeNaughtySite, I'd want to put in stuff like Something.Google.com that besides the tracking concerns, seems also to be a slow load component on a lot of sites.

The status bar on the bottom of browsers is really useful to tell you the random things a page tries to load. So if I used this to chip in a bunch of things, maybe that will speed up my browsing?



"127.0.0.1 [TAB] [website you have entered]"

Site just doesn't load or more precisely it redirects/connects to localhost

I have seen variations of this issue over the years, many but not all were fixed by one:

A reset of the WP permalinks, just click save without doing anything
Make sure home site and url are the same including the www in WP's general settings

Server side caching on a server that doesn't even seem to have a control panel? You probably need to use phpinfo uploaded via FTP to get some php and other version info. Something like wwww.domain.com/cpanel or serverip:8443 doesn't exist?

People's stupidity has brought us to this point. You think people don't or wouldn't blame the browser makers/authors if they get infected?

Great thing about DC is that at least one can debate such a thing.
Like I said before I wasn't bothered by the bar. Buttons won't be as effective, especially being in the footer but obviously if bar didn't bother me the buttons don't either.

I don't have a problem with it, simple blue bar on the bottom is nothing compared to other things I have seen

Thanks.

I won't comment anymore, because it might seem I have a beef, which is not even close to reality smiley

Bill P recently sold WinPatrol.  There was a big deal made on the transition about picking someone who would continue the same traditions yadda yadda.  I'm not really bashing the new developer trying to make a few $$.  It's just that everything seems to be trending to having a meter attached.  People with longer names will change them to short ones because when they sign something online they will be charged per keystroke.  Pay toilets won't have a coin box on the door but on the toilet paper dispenser.  Pull on the roll and watch your bankroll dwindle.

It's like the bean counters are going to nickel and dime us all to death.  Every gimmick and angle will be exploited.


As far as I am concerned that's still the equivalent of what I said, I believe it's been only a few months since the sale

Will try to do something in a few days.

Holding out as long as he could is nice, as mentioned numerous times by many people he is one of the nicer guys.
Having said that I will not hide the feeling that I dislike license changes, no matter who does them. Hosting and developing software has always been a challenge, even someone like me who doesn't do it has seen it many places, it's not a new thing and has nothing to do with greed or lack there of it either.
My point being, I rather see something start as (a wow that's expensive) shareware from the start than free then not free after X years.

Credit card numbers and passwords need to be one time things that are set up, requested, delivered to you via secondary protected apps. Something like this exists via few banks/credit card issuers but needs to be expanded in a big comprehensive way. Sort of 2FA on steroids.

Surprisingly (?) I am doing well enough with only:
 
Adblock
Tabsplus, mainly for 'position of a new tab: last'
Oh and Web Developer.

60GB in 30 days can't be right, something like mouse's explanation must be the case, surely?

Previously when he had a voluntary donation plan with access to extras like forum I donated a small amount. Would be sad to see anything happen. I also whitelisted ghacks many years ago. Will see what I can do.

Renegade, you know how the FCC's Canadian equivalent whose job is supposedly to protect the consumer is a rubber stamp for Bell and Rogers (and Telus). I don't know what can be done to fix it but FCC standing aside is likely just as bad as it having too much power. The part above in red will be taken up by some one any way. Is there a better or worse someone? Who really knows.
