Nothing to worry about? Shocked

Have no fear
here is some FUD:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=427465#427465

Incidentally the only thing
known to consistently crash Puppy is
Adobe Flash (Steve Jobs may be right
to exclude them from the Ipad - though
other considerations are going on too)

For those who are trying to wean themselves off
the paranoid brain. Try turning off the firewall for an hour
(you can do it!) Confused
Puppy ran for its initial years with no firewalls
and was safe. Cool
Without a firewall, what might happen?
The evil 'they' might not do anything . . .
Best not take any chances?
Reinforced tin-foil hats all around . . . Very Happy

Lately I have been using a Puppy
that downloads files as a secured user (Spot)
into a secret location of my choice.
I can not tell you which version of Puppy
because then you would worry that your
version does not do that.
Hey - you need to worry to be a paranoid
So I will tell you
Puppy Fatdog64
Only works on 64bit computers
Oh you 32bit paranoids should be scared now . . . Rolling Eyes

I'd be scared if I had the time to do so.

Open Chromium
click on the spanner
under the bonnet
content settings
cookies
adobe flash settings

What is all that about?

Google is keeping an eye on you
Adobe Flash is a full programming language . . .
and 'they' are watching you
Looks like an advanced sort of cooky to me
(probably in preparation for GoogleTV)

Someone pass the bacofoil . . . Shocked

Spyware for kiddies?
http://www.salon.com/technology/col/garf/2000/06/15/brodcast

I was just phoned by a company 'Accident Helpline'
claiming an accident had been witnessed outside my home.
They reluctantly gave their address as 'Central London'
Sorry I need specifics before I talk to anyone
I am unsure of, they hung up as I was not cooperating with whatever scam script they were promoting.
Mind you I was kind to the Jehovah's Witnesses
who called this morning - telling them I was a Buddhist
rather than a Satanist. They were elderly and too much excitement might cause the end of their world. Wink

As adults we can deal with these scams

Cyber vested interests are gaining access to
kids.
We have to be paranoid for them
as they do not have the capacity.

Keep your fledgling penguins safe.
Allow them to use Puppy.

Peace of Puppy
In Cyber Wars

I am happy (for our tin hats) to provide the Puppy IRC conspiracy
It probably does not exist but who knows?

I was happily using IRC in Puppy Lucid 5.1 (Beta3 509)
when I was kicked off (I think)
and could not get back in

I can no longer connect to the IRC Puppy channel
even with a change of software
Could it be part of this:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=439543#439543

It might just be a bug
but I think our tin foil hats deserve a real conspiracy
to get their worry beads into . . .

Cool

Ehhm it was most likely a server hiccup. Multiple people had the same problem around the same time. Try again. If it still won't work, maybe choose a different server to connect through.
Try this list:

Hi Lobster

Well at least our operating systems are not sending personal information to mr gates.
Could not block it in W*****S 7 so stopped using it.
Read some alarming stories about government monitoring (UK)
Is there anything that can be done to remain private from google?
Pass the tin foil hat please

In my continuing efforts to find something (rather than the usual nothing) for our intrepid tin hats to concern themselves with . . .
I have noticed that Firefox has somehow decided to go to http://bi/ every time it starts up . . .
The message 'It works' comes up on screen . . .

What works? I close the tab and it comes back next Firefox start.
Am I being foxed by the fox? It does not work for me
- so who are 'they' working for? Rolling Eyes

With scroogle there's no options panel on the left side (timeline, etc, etc) and the links contain all the same analytics, etc, anyway...so what's the point? I'm liking Ghostery, where I can block them.
