  • Who cares what other people think. If I post something and get one affirmation, I feel pretty damn good about it. If I don't, whatever.

    There's very few movies or games that I don't see a place for at all, but that is a far cry from them just not interesting me. I know people who are obsessed with power rangers and COD. Personally, they've never interested me but seeing how some people can go on and on about them, I'd have to admit that they have a place in this world. They make people happy.

    I'll also admit that I have a very bitter attitude towards CGI and it's overtake of modern effects, but aside from that, not much else will get a very emotional, bias response out of me.

    The Fox... but I've wanted to change that for a while now.

    Also there is a "Antisocial" filterlist for Adblock.

    Stumbled across that yesterday, but just eliminates the tracking... not the buttons. :(
  • So, apparently the best I could manage on Herbal Space Lotion is get a manned space probe in the sun's orbit.

    Also, for Adblock Plus, there is:
    http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/banish-social-network-buttons-adblock/
    which has links to two ad block lists regarding social network buttons/widgets

    and this: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/elemhidehelper/
    Adblock Element Hiding Helper for easily blocking specific elements from web pages.


    I don't know why you'd want to switch to Chrome. It might be fast and pretty but it's not as versatile.

    Firefox has a lot more options and, from what I understand, Chrome doesn't allow kernel-level ad blocking. That is to say, if you block ads in Chrome, the browser engine processes the page's code and then lets ad blockers hide elements. As opposed to Firefox which allows ad block extensions to block code before it's even loaded (meaning that ad blockers and popup blockers in Firefox are more effective.)
  • I finally put the new power supply in the computer that was going flaky. It was delayed a while because I got a power supply with a 24-pin motherboard plug, but the motherboard only had a 20-pin socket, and no room for overlap, so I had to track down an adapter. The first try, I had no network, which was a bit alarming, but after reseating a few things, it all seems to be working now.

    It sounds a lot different from the old one, though. I don't know how long it's going to take to get used to that.
