2012-01-17: Browser tip: Quickly remove old autocomplete entries

Posted at 2012-01-17 12:23:44 by SHD

Here's a quick tip. If you're entering information into a web form and have outdated or incorrect suggestions in the autocomplete dropdown that your browser offers, you can delete them easily. Use the ↓ key on the keyboard to highlight the offending item, then press the Del key to delete it from the list. I've confirmed this works at least in Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer.

2012-01-14: Accessing sites blocked by your ISP

Posted at 2012-01-14 20:53:21 by SHD

Just recently, MPAA/RIAA sock puppets Brein managed to convince some clueless judge to order two of the largest ISPs in the Netherlands, XS4ALL and Ziggo to block (in)famous torrent website The Pirate Bay. TPB have put up a message that is shown to anyone visiting from a Dutch IP address, as shown below. XSALL and Ziggo have both announced they will appeal to a higher court, which is a good thing. I don't even use TPB myself and wouldn't really miss it, but I do care deeply about worthless assholes doing anything limiting my internet access. So, how would this work and what can I (or anyone) do to give these lying thieves the finger and circumvent these blocks if they are upheld by the higher courts?
