  1. A heartfelt THANK YOU to all of our veterans.
  2. Yes I was religious about keeping FF up to date. Had browser cache set to zero (in about:config). Running a bunch of extensions geared towards this end; cookie auto-delete, canvas blocker, css exfil protection, decentralize, disconnect, duckduckgo privacy essentials, https everywhere, privacy badger, ublock origin, and violent monkey with some anti-ad scripts. Note that if your run the duckduckgo extension, you have to white-list theboresite or the pages won't load properly. As for Edge, I realize everything Microsoft reports back to Microsoft. But there are ways to disable telemetry. One such method is running O&O ShutUp10. I enabled only the recommended settings, but I did have to loosen some of the settings for Edge in order to make it work they way I like. If you're adventurous, you can really tighten Win10 down but only if you really know what you're doing. I'm running the same extensions on Edge that I ran on Firefox.
  3. My condolences to you and your family. Sorry for your loss. RIP
  4. Afraid of clogging the vent and causing a super volcano eruption?
  5. I once got hit in a Home Depot parking lot. Guy in a dualie blew through a stop sign and literally ran over the nose of my car (monster truck style). I was driving a 90s era Buick. Had a few people stop to ask if I was okay (I was). Thankfully I had the presence of mind to ask said people if the witnessed the accident and would declare so. They all provided names and phone numbers, and it made all the difference. The police (when they finally showed up) told me there was nothing they could do because it was a parking lot. I mentioned said witnesses and that changed everything.

    Sound bar ?

    I'm running a Samsung sound bar with my Samsung tv. No issues.
  7. Edge Chromium (need I say it?) is nice and fast. Plus you have the option of using Microsoft and/or Chrome extensions. I haven't figured out if one is better than the other, but I did find Chrome extensions that Microsoft did not offer. I migrated from Firefox to Edge Chromium after I noticed FF was failing to delete cookies/cache on exit, even with options set to do so. Oddly enough I was having issues with logging into my bank with FF and not Edge using much of the same extensions. Brave is great if you also want to avoid finger printing. It randomizes the user-agent. All three browsers are on my computers and I bounce between them.
  8. Check out O&O Shutup10. Locks down some of the unwanted nonsense nicely. You can safely implement the recommended options, unless you're more adventurous. Also here's a good video explaining better than I can. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_iE9wNxkY7Q https://www.oo-software.com/en/shutup10/latest-version
  9. I've owned a number of Zippo lighters over the years (mostly in my youth). I couldn't tell you were a single one is now. How many of us overfilled the Zippo with lighter fluid, had it leak in pocket irritating skin on leg? *raises hand*
  10. I do my talking with the sole of my shoe. 😎
  11. It would be great if this extended to other states like New York. The only pro-2A orgs here in NY are NRA affiliates, and about as useless as the crap they spew to gun owners about how they're protecting our freedoms. All gun clubs require current NRA membership. Local outfits require New York State Rifle & Pistol Association (NYSRPA) membership in order to join. NYSRPA is as bad as the NRA when it comes to it's executive board and elections of its officers. They've already sold us down the river on the so called SAFE Act. I can't wait to escape this **** hole.
  12. They're pumping out smart items like mad...with zero protection.
