Capitalism is not the system of the past; it is the system of the future—if mankind is to have a future. Those who wish to fight for it, must discard the title of “conservatives.” “Conservatism” has always been a misleading name, inappropriate to America. Today, there is nothing left to “conserve”: the established political philosophy, the intellectual orthodoxy, and the status quo are collectivism. Those who reject all the basic premises of collectivism are radicals in the proper sense of the word: “radical” means “fundamental.” Today, the fighters for capitalism have to be, not bankrupt “conservatives,” but new radicals, new intellectuals and, above all, new, dedicated moralists.

I have some application which always tries to connect to the website. I have one in particular called Total Uninstall 6.Total Uninstall is an uninstaller written by Gavrila Martau.
I tried the entry: 127.0.0.1 www.martau.com
But it still connects to the website and pops up as unregistered.
What i want to know is ! How do i know this program is trying to connect to a particular website. Is there a tool that can do that, i already have 2 firewall for this kind of job, but they fail sometime due to hard PC restart and all i have is host file.-shadowman (March 01, 2016, 09:01 AM)
Yes, defects do happen in all software.It is just as irresponsible, but possibly less competent.-xtabber (February 19, 2016, 08:04 AM)
That seems a bit less than charitable, as defects happen in every software. Not a desired outcome, but it happens.-wraith808 (February 19, 2016, 08:14 AM)
I also subscribe to MediciTV. Expensive, but they tend to offer 40% off prepaid annual subscriptions for a few days around the end of the year. The idea is to give them as gifts, but you can purchase them for yourself.MediciTV, MetOnDemand and DigitalConcert Hall.-nmharleyrider (October 04, 2015, 08:59 PM)
Thanks for those three! I'd not known that the classics had come into the digital age! Trying to decide between them... hmmm...-wraith808 (October 04, 2015, 09:52 PM)
I discovered Wilhelm Kempff this week.
I also discovered Beethoven's Tempest Sonata -- via Nokia's 'Silver' ringtone which is a variation on the start of the third movement :-)

Anyway, a browser I've been using for a while: FrostAccording to Google Play, Frost was last updated in November 2014. That's more than a year ago. A very long time for a browser.
Has a password protected vault for your bookmarks and any saved images, unlocked by entering a pin/password as you would a web address, ie. if your pin is 1234 you just enter that as the web address in a tab, the vaults become unlocked and any previous session tabs can be restored.
When you exit, all history is removed and the vaults lock.-4wd (February 06, 2016, 01:28 AM)
