when ad whores infect capchae:

a new challenge for adblock plus

Learned something new in photoshop.  I created a rectangular selection/mask for each ad area to highlight (by not dimmig with dark layer), and rotated it.  After saving one to a new channel I deselected all, and created the other selection and saved to a channel.  Now how can I have both selections loaded simultaneously to run the blackout action?  hmmm

Load selection from channel “right”.  Save selection to new channel “additive set”.  Load selection from channel “left”.  Save selection to _existing_ channel “additive’ and tick the second option “add to channel”.  Deselect all.   Load selection from channel “additive set” and voila: both rotated rectangular selections active and ready to feed to action (invert selection, create new lawyer, fill black, decrease opacity)

No to figure out how to do that in GIMP (GIMPhoto)

Droid X / Incredible and SIP (voip) apps less than impressive

Filed under: adblock, ITSP, overview, SIP, voipms — Seth Wisely @ 20:00

droid x [ SIPdroid + ] = uLaw only, called party unable to hear my audio, I can hear my echo, in handset mode (not speakerphone, not blewtooth)

droid (x|incredible) [ SIPdroid + LES ] = uLaw only, called party unable to hear my audio, I can hear my echo, in handset mode (not speakerphone, not blewtooth)

SIPdroid + SipSorcery next … but that’ll not solve the audio stream issues.  STUN yes/no … no joy.

SIPdroid seems to really really want use of PBXes.  More power to them if they have developed a partnership of play well togetherness

droid x [ IAXagent + ] uLaw only, slightly less horrible than SIPdroid

droid x [AntiSIP +]

droid bionic [IAXagent +]

droid bionic [antiSIP +]

all destinations are non-mobile PSTN unless otherwise specified

ITSP currently:, viatalk, LES

plan to BYOD ITSP: future nine, voipo,

fring?  must I?

STUN: ekiga, numb, or vtnoc




root + malware (adware “free” apps) == BAD waiting to happen.  Please privilege surf responsibly.   ALWAYS take a moment to warn others that a “free” app is ADWARE.

appbrain, f-droid, and?

Filed under: burning money = pointless pain — Seth Wisely @ 22:34

When an android phone is inflicted on you which app reviewing system?

appbrain seems nice, AppStoreHQ is a bit creepy, but seems more ambitious  F/OSS.  yes, REAL freeware.. ZERO malware (adware).  yay.

webmd “is it cold or flu?”

The title of the slideshow is a question and not an assertion of knowing the difference which might explain some of these fun facts:

slide 13 by far was the most helpful because it was helpful

Drugstore medicines like decongestants, cough suppressants, and antihistamines can help congestion, cough, and nasal symptoms. Acetaminophen, ibuprofen, or naproxen can treat pain or headache.

the sky is falling on ad servers and google is losing ground :: reversing the table

Filed under: adblock, bookmarkified, double checking realty, Less Insecure — Seth Wisely @ 23:46

Wladimir is porting AdBlock Plus to Chromium (Chrome). I would preferer a XUL AdBlock Plus appplication as well for more flexibility with more browsers via local proxy.  Leave the browser to browsing, remember proxomitron glory, and maybe someday take a page from “google’s” playbook of multiple processes to keep multiple extension [bloat] from draggin’ us down.

brute force merrily along

[insert how to install adblock plus into droid x here where x could have as easily been y or n]

Seth Wisely said: more good XUL is more better

note to self: about:config trailing space OFF on that one laptop

Seth Wisely said: also thanks and kudos to Wladimir and the adblock pioneers upon whose shoulders he stands
