Gee, Captain, I'm glad you weren't referring to me. ;) :o

This is Darksurfer.

I remember when I started at FL. I got into some raher interesting discussions with certain members about, albeit, political things, which, looking back, was really silly on my part.

But I did get a lot of useful information about ISPs, products, free and other things. I offered advice, when needed to fellow members. Wow, FL had been in existence since 2000. Wow, am I getting old. ???

This forum here reminds me of the old FL in many ways.

RIP Freedomlist 2000-2016

Security Software Programs / Re: CryptoPrevent discussion
« on: April 21, 2016, 02:51:57 PM »
I've gone back and forth with Cryptoprevent but I am staying with the free current version of this program. I used Hitmanpro Alert2.5.77 version but the fly outs stopped working on all the previous browsers--Firefox and Pa e Moon, for reasons I still don't understand.

Has anyone else noticed this with Hitmanpro. I also use Spyshelter which is an excellent software. Gotta keep those ransom ware bay as much as possible.

Today is the first day of the Chinese year of the Monkey.

For those who don't know any thing about this kind of zodiac, here is a little background.

As for myself, I am a Dog.

What sign are you?

Web News / Re: Adobe Flash is Dead -- Finally!

I'm glad I included "Or at least we can hope to see the end of it." when I started this thread.  From the same article that siljaliane provided above, note the quotes from Jérôme Segura, Malwarebytes security researcher.  So, with the open source HTML5, we may not be any/much better off than with Adobe maintaining Flash.

Well, we can always dream about it, can't we? ::) :o

I am glad that Flash is slowly ending or at least being marginalized but there are still plenty of sites that require it. Especially video rich sites, which are many. I put flash on ask mode on my Pale Moon and Firefox browsers.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Peace and love to all. :D ;D ;)

How much data per month?

Oh, at least 25gb a month at 4g speed.

darksurfer, why did you use a third party site instead of the vendor site to download the new version? ::)
Well, winchester73

he first party site didn't let me download it. I don't know if my downloader won't take but it did take. So, I don't see no harm, therefore, no fowl. Besides, Majorgeeks is pretty reliable.

Sometimes, beggars can be choosers. ;)

My internet service is about to end and I need unlimited or high data broadband mobile service. I have been looking at T-Mobile, Verizon, ATT, etc. and they are all quite expensive and none offer unlimited internet service.

Does anyone have a good deal for national coverage?

darksurfer, I'm sure you do not mean grabbing an alpha version. That is worse than beta!

Eventually I'll get an announcement that the updated version has been downloaded and is ready to install. I'll wait.

Yes, plodr. I meant to say finale version and , guess what, it's available. Right here at Major Geeks. Check this out:

I downloaded it and it works great  ;D :D ;)

I understand that this latest version is being rolled out slowly. You can't download it at their site. And a possible beta:

I can't download it unless there's something going on at their site. ???

If this is abeta, I'll wait. Betas often still have issues. When the final or alpha version comes out, then I'll get it. ::)

Meet & Greet! / Re: Welcome, CaptainTripps!

Welcome, Captain ;)

I have now removed the one update that I could find from my system. :-[

I am outraged that Microsoft has sunk this low in their spying efforts. I could expect this from free software in thei bundles and such but this has gone too far.  >:(

Needless to say I am  ot using Windows 10. Their users seem to have enough on their plate. ::)

Web News / Recent Patches to Microsoft Windows 7/8 Now Spy on You
« on: August 31, 2015, 12:52:17 PM »
I read an article at Gizmo's Freeware that claims that several recent patches to Windows 7/8 from Microsoft are now actively spying on computer users.

This has been discussed at other forums and is a cause of major concern.

I have to make up my mind whether to uninstall several of these updates. >:( :o ??? ::)

Not only that but Windows 10 users may have to deal with further spying from Microsoft with their recent updates.

What's goin' on here.
