The latest version of scsh is 0.6.7, released May 16, 2006.

Thousands of Europeans Petition For Their 'Right To Be Forgotten'

MadMaverick9 Filter for EU searches. (224 comments)

The links are not actually deleted from Google, but only filtered for searches done from the EU.

So searches done from outside the EU can still see these links.

So this is actually worse than what we had before. Now Google is filtering ... uh ... censoring search results for some countries.

From the internet this content but do not disappear with it. Also just Google users should get displayed the filtered results in the European Union. Users outside the Member States, ie approximately in the United States should continue to get displayed the complete hit list. In this case, Google will note the language setting of the user.

Google Translate is bad, but you get the gist.

Desktop Browser of Choice in 2013?

MadMaverick9 Pentadactyl (381 comments)

I use Firefox with Pentadactyl. That way I don't care what UI changes Mozilla is making.

Cause with Pentadactyl the only Firefox UI that shows, is the Tab bar.

But I get all the advantages of Firefox: use of gstreamer for mp3 support, and much more.

US Gov't To Issue Secure Online IDs

MadMaverick9 Re:Connect The Dots (205 comments)

Obama must be jerking off in front of a poster of Richard M. Nixon while reading this news.

You think so? I find it more probable that Obama is jerking off in front of a poster of Erich Mielke.
