Freedome + Privacy badger + HTTPS Everywhere = good idea or bad idea?

I am wondering if these three features work together or agains each other:  Freedome: encrypting traffic + blocking trackers (but not in combinations wit HTTPS)Privacy badger: blocking trackersHTTPS Everywhere: encrypting traffic I am currently using all three, but I am not sure if I am overcomplicating matters...

I'd say you're overlapping the general security solutions here with different things. It probably wont do much of a harm or not impact performance (we're not in 90s), but I'm personally not enthusiastic about such inventions and hybrids. When you use Freedome, it does the encryption for you as you're going through the tunnel anyway. Freedome provides few additional, well coded functionalities like blocking trackers, etc. Using three solutions is like not believing in any of those.

  • I want to use a fantom diamond as an external hard drive for my mac, is this a good idea?

    Using a Macbook pro, with Snow Leopard (I think), and my memory is full so I want to store my stuff on an external hard drive. I found a 2T Fantom Diamond EHD, but I'm now learning that I have to convert to NTFS-3g. I'm not computer savy so I want to know if this is a good idea, or should I look for something different. Also, can I set up the EHD as the default path for itunes?

    This is not the forum for MacBook Pro owners.
    You just need to reformat the drive in Disk Utility and erase the drive and have  Mac HFS.
    If you did need to use NTFS then you would not want -3G but Paragon NTFS for OS X x. 10.0
    Or buy something that isn't pre-formatted to Windows NT file system.
    First though make sure you have backups of your system. TimeMachine being used now?
    http://macperformanceguide.com/Mac-TimeMachine-drive.html
    http://www.apple.com/support/timemachine/
    Maybe cleanout some files you don't need.
    Install a larger notebook hard drive even.
    http://www.macsales.com/firewire has a lot of choice in Mac compatible drives and enclosures so you don't need to worry about Fantom not working at some point.

  • Https-everywhere Won't update & Won't Download, What Should i do?

    its my old post i made to another Firefox forum Topic, it was off topic there & there i asked how to solve the issue
    why docent https-everywhere update? & from the site it won't let me install the new version neither, i have 4.0.2, & new version is 4.0.3, from here, its official site https://www.eff.org/https-everywhere
    i was reading from here about it https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1008579 is it bad idea to use it if it has issues with Mozilla? should i replace it with add that is mentioned in that Mozilla topic?
    NEW TXT:
    got new version a different way, but is it bad i wonder?
    should i replace it with something? & with what?
    This?
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/enforce-encryption/
    anymore suggestions for its replacement? or is this link above best?
    i heard it causes problems to some, what kind of problems? like when writing comment suddenly all freezes for few sec so u cant write? & page loading lag where loading freezes for few sec sometimes? are this issues caused by https-everywhere
    Off The Topic questions:
    BDW in profile folder Addblock folder still exists, why? when i removed it long time ago, does ABE use addblock files cause there were blocked sites on there that ABE did not have when i installed ABE?
    i want to know, what is NVIDIA 3D VISION & what it does, & should i always enable it on youtube, or should i switch it to never ask from plugins?
    should i disconnect after sync? can connection to sync server cause some issues to, like slight lag after deleting a bookmark? can go to another opened tab, but cant open 1 of the bookmarked pages from bookmarks for few sec after deleting a bookmark, or is there issue with More In Content UI + 2.2

    this picture was taken 3-4 hours back, new it is 12,3/13,8GB, & its with firefox, is it normal or is one of the add causing it, to fix 1 issue i tried refresh, but it did not work then i overwrote the files with old files what were created with refresh (the issue i tried to fix with refresh got solved somehow), then i manually downloaded https-everywhere newest version, + HTML5 Add-on what u will see on this picture:

    is the thing with committed Physical memory normal or does this means Physical memory leaks? & is it connected with https-everywhere or some other add, or with me overwriting files or did windows update have that effect, or is it normal?
    13,8 shows limit, as i understand it, but if the limiter also changes, isn't it strange?
    or is it cause i am connected to the Sync server or how to call it, browser connected to Mozilla acc, can that cause problems to?
    also widows (or Firefox) instead of increasing the maximum Committed, the limit it should overwrite (or clean) old page files, so far it seems to have done it & i use same pages for weeks & yesterday the way Committed is used changed, no longer overwrites, i imagine if i watch videos with out sleep a month or 2 my Harddrive would be full of Virtual memory, more the Committed limit increases the more Harddrive space it takes & it grows with each video i watch, i closed browser once so it reset, new its 2,4/13,7BG, but it increases later on

  • Use of "Rel" Attribute in Links -- Good Idea?

    Hi --
    I was reading about various SEO methods recently and came
    across several
    pages which advocate the use of the "Rel" attribute on a
    hyperlink. The idea
    being that the "Rel" may influence how a search engine views
    a link and
    possibly help with ranking. For example: <a
    href="help.html" rel="Help">
    need help?</a>.
    Sounds like a good idea, but the more I read the confused I
    became. A Danny
    Sullivan article about use of the attribute "nofollow" used
    by major search
    engines made sense. It was the other article I read which
    used all
    different types of attributes that confused me such as
    rel="met colleague",
    rel="alternate". Is there someplace I can go to find a list
    of widely
    accepted attributes?
    Anyone have any experience with this?
    John

    Thanks, Joe. Yep, the source is the best place to start.
    Should have
    thought of that myself.
    I suspect you're assessment is correct...won't hurt, might

  • Apex and remote database links.... Good idea or bad?

    We would like to have one single Apex installation that would be used to develop many applications against many remote databases.
    Database links would seem to be the obvious mechanism to achieve this goal, but we have had many issues with db links.
    Also, our research indicates this might not be a good idea for various reasons.
    Any opinions or experiences around this topic would be greatly appreciated.

    we have had many issues with db links. In that case it's a bad idea.
    It's not really an Apex question. If you can't get db links to work, it's a database issue. If it's performance over the db link, again it's a database issue (assuming modern networks aren't the bottleneck here). Remote views (instead of selecting from remote tables) often increase performance.
    If the applications don't have to share data over the db links, you can set up one master application and several sub-applications on the different databases. The master is used to log in once. See:

  • I have a mac and am thinking about upgrading from snowlepard to lion , is it a good idea and hard to adapt to

    i have a mac and am thinking about upgrading from snowlepard to lion , is it a good idea and hard to adapt to

    This is my "About This Mac" ... it shows I have Intel i7 CPU.  If you are running SL, you at least have Intel, but would need at least Core2Duo an 2 GB (most people suggest 4 GB) RAM.
    If you want to run Lion, remember that the discussions in this forum from last summer when Lion first came out (and since) were highly charged at times.  Certain features that vanished or were added caused great heartache for some.  Others love Lion, though.  And some live with the changes waiting for any fixes they would desire.
    Any PPC (PowerPC) applications you depend upon will not work under Lion.  Use this page to see what applications will not run:  http://roaringapps.com/apps:table
    AND
    Recall that you can clone your SL to an external disk to keep it safe.  Then you can "experiment with" the new OSX (Lion or ML) until you know it works for you while still having your old SL safe in case you need it.
    Good luck.

  • Hi. Is it a good idea to install Lion on an ibook from 2007?

    I have an old ibook which has stopped working - the 'file' icon with a question mark appears when I turn on.
    A local Tech shop says the machine is still good - they think I should change the hard drive and upgrade to a new operating system - Lion or Mountain Lion.
    Can such an old machine take this? Is this solution a good idea?
    Thoughts much appreciated.
    Thanks

    Hi, and welcome to Apple Support Communities.
    The last iBook was discontinued in 2006.
    You must have a MacBook if you got it in 2007?

  • Thinking of converting a secondary DC & replica DFS into a Hyper-V host - a good idea?

    Hello!
    I am trying to minimize the amount of server hardware regarding adding more servers to our domain (2008 R2).
    We have a quite new and strong (2x 6-core xeon with 24GB RAM) secondary DC server in our 2008 R2 domain. I am trying to come up with a better plan to utilize this machine's resources which was a bit of an overkill for just an AD, DNS and DFS services.
    Do you think it would be a good idea to demote that server, erase it, install 2008 R2 in Hyper-V mode and then add the AD service with DNS and DFS in Virtual mode and more (separate) virtual servers for other various purposes - thinking of Remote Desktop
    Services specifically for now, it can't run on same physical server as AD which is a slight problem as we are not planning on getting any hardware anytime soon.
    Can MS Exchange also run on Hyper-V? That would be a plus as well if it could.
    Thanks for insights.
    I am new to Hyper-V, never tried it before. Also forgot to mention, we use 2008 R2 Standard licenses, not enterprise/datacenter whatever.

    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=3512
    is this the "regular free Hyper-V" you mentioned? is it a standalone OS that needs no key?
    anyways, the question stands, I am not sure I can use the physical and virtual keys (from 2 standard licenses) in VMs, i'd certainly like to... 4 VMs sound really good, much better than 2.
    that is the old one, there is a new 2012 R2 version for datacenters

    that's an evaluation software ... 180 days license or something? or worse, a beta version?
    I'm talking about production environment in live business ...
    reviewed the 2008 R2 licensing and it seems that no matter the approach, each of Standard licenses allows only for a single VM...
    EDIT:
    OK, that is a full feature version, free and supposedly an RTM, which is good. might consider it for future.
    either way, legally speaking, the licensing problem with 2008 R2 STD still exists, because officially you can use only 1 STD license per VM. As far as I understand from legal standpoint, one cannot use both physical + virtual keys (from a single 2008
    R2 license) for two separate VM guests, no matter how, it probably is not OK (even though it may work and activate properly).

  • Why are flash buttons not a good idea?

    I'm trying to figure out a problem I'm having with flash

    asking if the poster knows that flash buttons aren't a good idea.
    However, I was unable to find an explanation as to
    why they are a bad idea. Can anyone explain this to me in

    general. I'm developing an intranet site for a specific group of

  • Use of flash buttons - not a good idea?

    Hi guys
    I've been advised in an earlier post against the use of flash
    buttons. As someone relatively new to Adobe products I'm interested
    to know how flash buttons don't seem to be supported but flash
    moves or indeed flash websites are in abundance and seemingly have
    no problems, or personally speaking I've not had problems viewing
    such websites in the past. I'm not contending the opinion I was
    given but as someone on a learning curve I think it would be
    invaluable to learn how one works and not the other.
    Also, what would be a suitable alternative to flash buttons,
    I'm considering using jpg images which change on mouse-over using
    javascript.
    Mike

    sigh - i was trying to be nonjudgemental. one may have a site
    where seo is a nonissue and they know that their audience has the
    latest flash-equipped browser (like mine, for example. while i
    choose to not use flash for different reasons, i don't rely on
    search engines as a meaningful source of business and/or leads.)
