I was wondering what the Do Not Track feature in Firefox actually does. According to it’s Do Not Track FAQ :
Do Not Track is a step toward putting you in control of the way your information is collected and used online. Do Not Track is a feature in Firefox that allows you to let a website know you would like to opt-out of third-party tracking for purposes including behavioral advertising. It does this by transmitting a Do Not Track HTTP header every time your data is requested from the Web.
Unfortunately it might be next to worthless according to this How-To-Geek article.
While a few websites will pay attention to it, the vast majority of websites will ignore your preference.
That’s kind of a bummer but hey, it’s a start. Anything that might curb your data being analyzed and sold is a plus in my book.
The honest truth is things are worse than I thought. And they are pretty difficult for me to deal with, nor do I want to deal with it.
So, the podcast is shut down for now. I don’t know if it comes back or when it comes back. We were originally supposed to be down for a month and then we’d start…
Ugh…this is a dark day.
Been tracking down music I haven’t heard before via “must listen to” lists. I keep saying the same thing: “How have I not heard this before?” I consider myself a metal head but have never heard of “Transcendence” or even Crimson Glory before. Diggin’ it! If you like power metal* you might dig it too.
*Of course if you like power metal you probably already know of this album. My power metal knowledge is admittedly limited.
