facebook users wanting to XMPP third party app, Psi+

The cause of the proble is that you have changed your facebook privacy settings to “Turn off all apps” (under “Apps and Websites”). This will disable your ability to send messages via jabber, as well as to receive messages sent via jabber. ….To fix the problem, simply enable apps again….. both you *and* the facebook friend you are sending messages to need to have apps enabled for jabber communication to work

I do not use facebook.  I value my privacy: it is not a commodity. Please use an OTR capable client, and enable OTR (auto start / or require).  Psi+ is such a client and is cross-platform.  Unfortunately if you are not installing via PPA (ubuntu) you must manually install the Psi+ OTR plugin (unpack from 7zip archive into plug-ins directory, options plug-ins enable)

http://code.google.com/p/psi-dev , or pidgin.im, or gajim. trillian incarnations continue to be evil and must be avoided.

Remember: you used an email address to signup for facebook.  So, yes, you do have an email address.  When you invariably ask “hey, what’s your facebook?” and the privacy aware friend replies “I don’t facebook,” be sure to follow with “what’s your email? oh, and what’s your jabber?”.  play well together nicely.

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

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

allow themselves to be trained to lie and recite HALF truths verizon wireless more successful selling droid x “smart” “phones” prior to giving meth to a baby buy one $99 get one free

Filed under: adblock, double checking realty, Less Insecure — Seth Wisely @ 10:29

lies pay better.. let’s all have a lie to verizon day!

 

.

on the occasion of being asked for phone ‘advice’ the truth rarely disuades one snared by Morning Star’s twinkling light:   it’s not a phone, it’s not a tablet, it’s not smart.  It is an indentity challenged device that’s flat, can make calls though beyond the phone appellation little more regard is offered in marketing, and it’s sly at best running adroid (AOSP).  What is google’s PRIMARY function (yes, all for-profit companies exist to make money) ??   Data minining.  What is google’s SECONDARY function?  Showing ads.

Now 720p is “true HD glory” and 4.3 inches is a “large widescreen”?

If you insist on a droid x, person x, please ‘root’ it and slap in a less creepy ROM.  At the very least you’ll GAIN ADBLOCKING.

how can paper ballots be hacked?

Filed under: Less Insecure — Seth Wisely @ 18:57

oh, right, it’s paper and can’t be hacked.  Holes in paper does not need a technology “upgrade”.  The only acceptable overlay is electronic imaging OF HOLES and NOT BITS.

the hubris of evil will continue to increase.   “didn’t read the bill” .. “harry already checked” .. even the dim will be able to see the hubris soon
