@Barkin

You suggested to turn off javascript. Well, if I do, I can't access my webmail account
from my opera browser. Any ideas about how to go around this?

Thanks in advance.

Hi!

@ all

I've been studying the man for chmod and came up with the following, as a refinement
of my previous post on the subject. Any ideas as to how to improve this little script are welcome. (Since this is not exactly intuitive...)

Code:
# Exercise 1)
# Specify user only permissions for a folder named "Documents" in /root.

# Step 1
chmod -v -R uga-rwx /root/Document # Remove all rights to anyone for the folder and all the files in it, in verbose mode.
# Step 2
chmod -v -R u+rw /root/Document # Give back read and write rights to the user only for the folder and all files in it, in verbose mode.
# Step 3
chmod -v u=rwx /root/Documents # Give back search rights to the user only for the folder, in verbose mode.
####
# Exercise 2)
# Specify user only permissions for all folders in /root.

# Step 1
chmod -v -R uga-rwx /root # Remove all rights to anyone for the folder and all the files in it, in verbose mode.
# Step 2
chmod -v -R u+rwx /root # Give back read, write, and search or execute rights to the user only for the root folder and all files in it, in verbose mode.

(Corrected Jan 27, 2014: last line in the code above should have read /root, not /root/Documents. Sorry about that.)

Thanks in advance.

I use Seamonkey with addon "NoScript".
I put sites I allow javascript to run in the "NoScript" whitelist.

It appears Opera has several addons with similar capabilities, e.g. Script Defender.

Ditto

There seem to be alternatives to NoScript for Opera , which have a whitelist system, (only websites on the whitelist are permitted to use JavaScript FlashPlayer JavaApplets etc), but I've never tried these alternatives to NoScript.

But why would I want to spy on the keys I myself type... ? .

The suggested uses were spying on the other members of the household.

However Keylogger could be used ethically : imagine you've filled in an on-line form only for something to go wrong,
you can retrieve a copy of what you've typed from the keylogger rather than type-in all the data again.

Jello, mikeb Smile

Maybe a typing tutor would do a better job of it? Here's a short list:

Hust a thought! Smile
