SSLpasswdWarning OR Safe

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/11894 — SSLpasswdWarning: are you authenticating securely?

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/11666 — Safe: provides far more detail than SSLpasswdWarning.  Do not bother with the page code injection option.

we need an AdBlock Plus selective deny extension for cookies that is also Karma based

Filed under: interweb — Tags: — Seth Wisely @ 22:22

Both AdBlock Plus and Karma Blocker accomplish the same goal.  One with block lists and one with SpamAssassin style rules.

Cookie management extensions are deficient by comparison.  None are pro-active based on intent of placing cookie.  TACO is a step in the right direction albeit primitively.

Zone Salting with spambox.us

Filed under: antispam, interweb, Zone Salting — Tags: , , , — Seth Wisely @ 20:40

Zone Salting continues… spambox.us is onboard

spambox.us free Disposable Email Address service grants a forwarding alias from a ‘random’ draw of registered domains.  However the assigned username works with any registered zone.

DEA last for user selected period from an hour to a year, can be extended or canceled.

$21 Billion Orbiting Solar Array will needlessly Beam Electricity to Earth

“[japanese project] aims to spend the next four years developing the technology needed to beam the electricity produced to earth”

The sun, a legacy technology, already ‘beams’ energy to Earth.


“They expect that as fossil fuels run out”

Instead of using economical, practical technology like oh say nuclear power plants (for energy and desalinization) they opt to pursue a four square kilometer pie in the sky.

Fossil fuels are another form of solar energy.

self destructing services help re-educate unwashed masses using email

Filed under: antispam, interweb — Tags: , , — Seth Wisely @ 08:29

The largest source of spam for me is the VAST unwashed masses using email.  Those people blissfully unaware that email predates the interweb.  I no longer have the patience to re-educate each on BCC and email netiquette so I have finally accepted the necessity of proximate circles of trust.  The more trusted the contact the better email contact information provided.  My peripheral email address uses self destructing images, self destructing URLs, and disposable email aliases to send content that is likely to tempt the ignorant into mashing her FWD button.

drop : media :: (kicknotes or stealthmessage) : text :: (vapurl or urlgone or ephemurl) : url

drop.io (expire: week, month, year: exactly or since last access)
kicknotes.com
vapurl.com (expire by days or clicks or combination.  can track usage)
urlgone.com (expire by days)
ephemurl.com (expire by days
stealthmessage.com (DO NOT give it email address other than DEA to collect URL to email yourself)

When their respective recipients receive the email with URLs to content that is no longer available the feedback loop discourages them from forwarding my email.

^ I have been emailing various services for more than a year pressing for self expiring options. Seemingly there are many new fruits of this effort.  :-}

This is far more convenient that using a cPanel webhost for DIY expiration. (ftp + mod_rewrite + cron + pixie dust)

entertaining variations

vapurl alternative:  urlgone.com or ephemurl.com

kicknotes alternative: stealthmessage.com
sturly alternatives: vapurl.com or urlgone.com or ephemurl.com
drop.io alternative: disposablewebpage.com (weak alternative for media)

verizon fios domains whitelisted in 9100em router config : not

Filed under: interweb — Tags: — Seth Wisely @ 12:02

Until I know the purpose of these domains I am not allowing them to ‘secretly’ whitelist them in the 9100em config:

activatemyfios.verizon.net — what is the ongoing need to allow this?
activate.verizon.net
— what is the ongoing need to allow this?
netservices.verizon.net — some portal features
sso.verizon.net
— I do not want 1960s features in overpriced voip

dcshm.verizon.net
dcs.verizon.net
techassist.verizon.com
— no thanks, I do not need you poking about
cpe-ems.verizon.com
— smtp?
cpe-ems1.verizon.com
cpe-ems80.verizon.com
wget 198.23.16.205:443
wbadownload.verizon.net — ‘free’ wifi hotspot bloatware that smells like netzero and?
download.verizon.net
— what is the ongoing need to allow this?

Advanced Filter Initial outbound and initial inbound rules trump ‘secret’ whitelist:

091010 homey dont think so

This rule set does not break FIOS TV guide data.  I could not care less about VOD and have not tested it.

Other modifications to the configuration file in a text editor are necessary to assure privacy (keep verizon out) and prevent verizon from further raping the firmware with “updates” or having the device destroy itself

::

solution: demand ethernet from ONT to house.  verizon can provide as many 9100ems as are needed to bridge ethernet to moca for the STBs or DVRs.  No GPON?  They’ll whine that you’ll have to suffer 100 Mbps instead of ~240 Mbps (of version one point zero MoCa) as verizon “opted” not to bother with gigabit ports on the 9100em among other awesome features we mere mortals need not about fret.  Yeah, right, I’ll definitely limit myself to the 9100em.  It is reassuring to see how knowledgeable fios people are.   :sigh:
