How to browse privately ?     (technology)

submitted by MaizeHungry3836 to technology 3 days ago (+1/-0)

14 comments last comment

I need to browse privately for my day to day browsing, I don't need anonymity, this is not for anything illegal nor I plan to do anything illegal with it

I don't want to use any extensions either because my browser (firefox) very often crash, that would render any extensions useless like FoxyProxy or any VPN add-on etc

I don't want to use a VPN on all my machine because I really don't have anything to hide except my web browsing activities except perhaps also my torrenting activities not using a VPN system-wide will also be better for me so I can keep playing game when I want on the same machine

I'm on Windows and use Firefox, I use firefox so I can easily disable any ip leak

What solutions do you have to suggest me ?

Firefox 89 introduces shitty UI changes     (www.ghacks.net)

You can revert it (for now) by searching "proton" within about:config and setting them all to false. Just remember that Firefox's default settings are kiked so make sure you're on LibreWolf.

Which Brand of WiFi Router Do You Prefer? Asus, Motorola, Netgear, Linksys, D-Link, TP-Link, D-Link, or other?     (technology)

submitted by Granite_Pill to technology 2 weeks ago (+8/-1)

I've noticed a lot of commercial network setups and pro-grade IT/network setups use Linksys routers. Most commercial installs I've ever done or seen used Linksys products. However, when you look up reviews of Linksys products, people tend to hate them. Their main feature than makes them different than the rest is they are running Linux? <-- In the form of a question because I don't know. According to the chatter online, Linksys routers are unrealiable and have a lot of bugs. Yet, they are used by the professionals so much.

The next most populous brand I see is Netgear. I'ved used Netgear routers and never had a problem with them. They are easy to set up and you forget they are there. Same with TP-Link. Years ago, I did a lot of research on specs and bought a Netgear router. After I got it and had it up and running, I looked up reviews on it and much to my great consternation, there was nothing but bad reviews on it! Yet I never had any problems with it and it still works today. Then I saw most Netgear products were universally hated. Now, it seems people have changed their tune and are giving Netgear products great praise. I'm not sure if I've ever seen a Netgear router in a commercial setup.

TP-Link, seems like some are good, some are bad, the good ones are good, the bad ones are bad. I have an old TP-Link router that hasn't given me a problem in years. I have seen TP-Link routers used in commercial setups.

I've had problems with D-Link and Belkin in the past. I also had a Motorola router fail on me.

Then again, in the big picture, they're all the same overall, it just depends on how much money you want to spend for what features and specs you want. They're all shit. They're all made in the same few factories in Asia so they're all basically the same just with different exterior skins and different firmwares and softwares. The chipsets are all made by a the same handful of producers too. Routers of different brands are now sharing the same parts in many cases. In actuality, they are all the same and their differences are an illusion instilled by marketing techniques.

I'm about to start doing some home and small business network installs and I want to have a go-to brand that's reliable, that I can learn all their shit inside and out and never have to return to the site ever again for that device unless to change some settings.

One of the Most Perplexing Problems iPhone Users Encounter is How to Delete Their "Downloads History" Without Losing the Files- Google Was Misinformation While the iPhone Helpline Was No Help At All - I explain how to do it read on ..     (technology)

submitted by MartinTimothy to technology 3 weeks ago (+5/-1)

Google says, "go to yr Downloads history and select an item by long pressing it, a blue heading will appear with a bin icon hit it and you have successfully deleted yr download history," except when you take that path if the download was an image file it is permanently erased from yr computer.

The item I am using is an OPPO model CPH1831 the fellow at their helpline was no help at all, he said to download the stuff I wanted to keep onto a third party computer, then do a full factory reset on the Iphone which would necessarily delete the DL history .. which was no solution at all since i needed to keep the stuff on the phone, he was no further use and when I rang back after discovering the method he would not take the call.

Ok open "File Manager" a list will appear in this case we click "Pictures" at right screen, there will be a number in a bracket, click that and a panel will open with a "Select" box top right .. click "Select All" and green headings appear at the bottom of the screen, click the "More" icon and a box will open with the heading "Add to Private Safe," click that and yr images are transferred to the TS folder and removed from yr downloads history all at once.

So how do we open our "Private Safe" and how do we find it .. go to "Settings" and scroll to "Security," at bottom is the "Private Safe" heading click that and a panel will open prompting you to enter yr "Passcode" for PS - ok first time users will have to enter a four digit pin when you have done that yr "Private Safe" folder will open, in this case we tested the op with an image, thus clicking the "Photos" heading there it is as large as life and yr DL history is gone :)

How does a battery-operated pole saw get power to the saw?     (sawsreviewed.com)

submitted by paul_neri to technology 1 month ago (+2/-1)

3 comments last comment

https://sawsreviewed.com/pole-saws/guide/

I purchased a Victa battery-powered pole saw the other day and put it together (but yet to try it) and last night in bed it hit me that I didn't notice any wires from the battery to the saw so how did the thing work or was something missing which caused me some anxiety and stopped me getting to sleep. I had to go to the hardware store Bunnings (equivalent of Home Depot) to get oil (lubricant) for the thing and asked the guys there and one chap said the current passed due to a worm fitting or something but overall I didn't really understand and I didn't want to pursue it with them because I could tell they thought I was a mask-wearing poofter which was very unkind. I don't want to dismantle the pole just to see if I can figure it out when I have you to tell me.

According to the comments, it happens after version 3.0.2. Hopefully someone forks it, or we move to something else entirely.

WOW! I got all of this on Craigslist for $125. Great deals like this can be found all the time. YOU CAN AFFORD A AWESOME HOME THEATER SETUP.      (technology)

All used and one of the speakers was blown (just one single Orb) but goddamn what a deal! It sounds amazing too, made in America quality.

Home audio has such low resale value you can find your for pennies on the dollar. I always recommend getting top of the line items from about a decade ago because you can find them for next to nothing. The stuff will be every bit as good as today's top of the line gear.

Anyway about my score;

Awesome brand that I had never heard of; https://www.orbaudio.com/pages/tech-stuff

I got this package: https://www.orbaudio.com/products/peoples-choice-surround-sound

And

This reciever: https://www.crutchfield.com/p_022RXV663/Yamaha-RX-V663.html

All for $125.
