It could be argued that google itself is a virus.

JFC, Edge.  YOU HAD ONE JOB.
One job, one problem. See how much better it's gotten?

The other shop . . . had an automatic Windows 10 update that broke their internet completely.  I had to try to diagnose and fix it via text messages to a very non-technical person.

I sent YT down there instead and told him (based on the googles) to erase all of Firefox's history, cookies, and cache.

Turns out that in the current versions of Firefox, that's apparently a big BIG pain in the ass.


:doh: to ALL of them

Well.  Microsoft.

In their defense, Chrome is such crap nowadays that it's kind of a wash.

I wouldn't put any anti-competitive behavior by Apple out of the range of plausibility.

GoPro really dropped off the radar quick. I don't know what happened there.

Noscript implemented an interface change about six-eight months ago (maybe longer) that made it unusable by me. I could not get it to work any more. Weird, because it *was* great.

Yeah, that was to be compatible with the new version of Firefox that I've been refusing to upgrade to, so I'm still using the old version of NoScript too. The new version of NoScript is one of the reasons I don't want to update Firefox.

I don't know shit about GoPro, alas.  :shrug:


None of the JS control apps are perfect, but most of them that I've tried are a lot better than nothing.  That said, old-Opera's native ad-blocking is better than any of the ad-blocking apps I've tried.  Just way better for I Want To Block THIS Thing Right Here.

What I want now is an app for my phone that automatically removes all AMP from URLs.  In my experience thus far, every AMP version of a webpage is a worse version of the mobile page, which is almost always a worse version of the regular page.  :whatever:

Google:  Stop doing things.

In other news, my GoPro has stopped talking to my computers. I plug it in, the light comes on, battery charges but no USB icon and no connection. I think it has to do with a recent MacOS upgrade. I saw some discussion of similar problems on GoPro's support forums, so I thought I'd check in there, no dice, so I thought I'd ask them a question. Required registration. OK, fine. Tried it. Infinite beachball.

Is GoPro actually dead?
