Privacy: Voluntary Do Not Track

Are you using HTTPS when you browse Facebook?  You should be.   But only 2% of the FB users worldwide are. [Turn it on like this:  Top right corner:  Account, Account Settings, Account Security – Check the first box – Browse Facebook on a secure connection (https) whenever possible.]

Here’s another privacy tip – turn on the “Do not track” option in Firefox 4 and Internet Explorer 9.

Introduced in Firefox 4, the do-not-track option is fairly well buried.

Firefox 4 do-not-track preference

Internet Explorer 9 includes a do-not-track feature that is even better hidden. To enable this functionality, you need to click the Sprocket -> Safety -> Tracking Protection -> Your Personalized List -> Enable.



Why these settings aren’t enabled by default is beyond me.  No, really, it’s all about the money.  Advertising dollar$.

You’re welcome.</end privacy hygiene lesson>



So, we have about 9 days until the due date for J’s baby. I’m jazzed!
However, you have to cut me some (more) slack – I will probably get a little baby-centric, depending on how much I see the child.

Here’s a good start. I love this, it shows how baby brains work and why peek-a-boo is so popular. Initially, they are like cats, I think – Out of Sight, Out of Mind. That short term memory is undeveloped.

Never say never

Never do today what you can put off till tomorrow. Delay may give clearer light as to what is best to be done.
– Aaron Burr, 1756 – 1836

Never do anything against conscience even if the state demands it.
– Albert Einstein, 1879 – 1955

Never let the fear of striking out get in your way.
– Babe Ruth, 1895 – 1948

Never apologize for showing feeling. When you do so, you apologize for truth.
– Benjamin Disraeli, 1804 – 1881

Never grow a wishbone, daughter, where your backbone ought to be.
– Clementine Paddleford, 1898 – 1967

Never insult an alligator until after you have crossed the river.
– Cordell Hull, 1871 – 1955

Never judge someone by who he’s in love with; judge him by his friends. People fall in love with the most appalling people. Take a cool, appraising glance at his pals.
– Cynthia Heimel

Never explain – your friends do not need it and your enemies won’t believe you anyway.
– Elbert Hubbard, 1856 – 1915
