Google Will Give a Search Edge To Websites That Use Encryption

Coniptor Re:Server Name Indication (148 comments)

Not positive this would resolve the issue but maybe a iframe with sandbox parameters as applicable. I think I've read you can do this. Not sure though.

5 Years Later, 'Do Not Track' System Ineffective

Coniptor Re:EFF's Privacy Badger (254 comments)

Bad side effects: Forces DNT:1 header regardless of firefox preferences set.
Examine ip-check.info to know why this would matter.

Google Offers Encrypted Web Search Option

Coniptor Re:Localization? (288 comments)

I was using their http://www.google.com/ncr for the I believe national character recognition and just changed it to https://www.google.com/ncr which was leaving the https secure site and going to their regular unencrypted site with the "Go to {_nation} Google".
I found it only works when I don't use /ncr and use only https://www.google.com/
Modifying Firefox's search function works as well. Just don't use /ncr and possible the /intl/kbcode/ strings.

Google Street View Logs Wi-Fi Networks, MAC Addresses

Coniptor Re:Ma Bell (the original) (559 comments)

*UNLISTED*
HEARD OF IT?
KNOW OF IT?
YEAH?
JUST BEING PETULANT!?
YOU SHOULD HAVE YOUR TEETH KICKED IN

NOT *everyone* knows how to hide their SSID, configure WPA2 AES, setup RADIUS, with TLS and or *radius* mac filtering, and setup a hotspot to guarantee AAA.
Configuring even *ONE* of these is a direct indication that those who didn't setup and **OWN** the hardware HAVE NO FUCKING BUSINESS interacting with the device PERIOD!

An open front door IS NOT INVITATION TO TRESPASS!!!

Is Hushmail Still Safe?

Coniptor Re:this has been the case all along (264 comments)

This only applies to the web based client.
If you use Thunderbird or any other mail client then the account+domain.tld are in the mail headers as the From: instead of the pseudonym address because you can't login to the servers with a client unless you use account+hushdomain.tld in which case it IS your From address regardless of if that's what you want or not. They use postfix and cyrus just like I do but I believe because they are using virtual domains you HAVE to specify your full login account information. So your last point ONLY applies if using the web front end and not a client. THIS REALLY SUCKS!

So what do you do if your NOT interested in paying for business class internet connectivity to allow in bound and out bound mail ports for HOME use because your NOT running a home business!? Without exceeding the cost your currently paying for Hush's service?
