Ubuntu is a more secure operating system as opposed to windows
it is less likely to get hijacked or infected it is open source and Free.

Packets get filtered by an IPS.

Intrusion prevention system - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The IPS must have filters and those filters must enabled to specifically stop what you want to stop ie Google analytics

Even weirder is when i surf russian bride sites and the Pelican banners show up.


I am joking of course about the bride site, but not joking that Pelican ads show up for me on other places. I wish Pelican didnt participate in that stuff.

Funny true story; a few years ago a fellow who worked for me got mixed up with a Russian female on the Internet. One day he went to lunch and didn't come back. Got a call that afternoon from the FBI who were waiting for him at his bank where he received a money order from her and was turning into cash to send back. Turned out his beautiful Russian babe was a hairy old guy from Tennessee.

YAHOO! about 10 years ago started pitching to me DIRECTLY in my e-mail that Russian girls had just arrived in LA and were looking to hook-up...

Now this was not spam, but a direct pitch FROM Yahoo.

I called their headquarters and asked them WTF where they doing stooping to such a low level? Their response: immediate cancellation of my e-mail account which I had for almost a decade with all contacts, etc.

REASON: I "violated" my contract with them.

Cool. I've heard of tipping point. Security is difficult because the tail is so long.

In case someone needs another reason to be scared: I once bought an old router intending to reflash it into a bridge. Searching for tools to reprogram it I found an exe from Korea that sent a 128byte packet to the router that enabled an undocumented root account with hard coded password! (played with it before using it.) With that root account I could reconfigure the router as a bridge and anyone else could also totally own the box. The device was utterly unsecured if you knew the secret (fixed!) code.

If you want something to be private you don't put it on a computer.

Wish I had Russian bride ads. Or cougars! I get ads for books of poems?

So Paul, you expect us to believe that you don't get adds for "alternative lifestyle" products?!?!?!

I get hammered with adds on the Pelican site - have not seen one for Russian brides but have seen some for the Asian equivalent - all manner of products (except the ones Paul gets BUTTofcourse!!). I've tried a couple of different anti-tracking/anti-add programs - they work for blocking the adds but then also block youtube vids posted here . . .

thats funny.
back in the 90's when AOL chat rooms were popular one of the guys at work said to another, " hey john, isnt your sons screen name ^&$%? well he is in the room lesbians looking for lesbians." john said tell him i said "hey". so he got in and said hey mark, your dad says hi. he was gone.

it would tell you when friends were online. i found one of the guys i worked with in men looking men. i signed in under another name to see what he was doing. he was really 39 years old but was telling people he was 24 and a buff surfer dude.
i never said anything.

Woo!

Just today I started getting the banner ads for Russian women (they make the best wives?? I thought they became babushkas), also for Asian Beauties.

At least the machine learning matrix has decided I'm somebody now!
