adblockforchrome :: I use it to create new rules.  I subscribe to no third party filter lists.

adblockplus for chromium :: it is deficient for creating new blocks or element selection

essential adblock filters oddly not in all lists:


blocking video ads in chromium requires a web proxy or other upstream filtration

loopback proxy:

intelligent CAPTCHAs overdue – part 1

Filed under: All Your Base,CIO,DARPA,Geeky goodness,Knowledge — Sagacious Himself @ 12:08 pm

First: the blind and vision impaired have no business inflicting their requirements on a technology designed to present information visually. They need to adapt to reality and not visa versa.

Swirly text deciphering does not intelligence test.

What is the resultant color when that of a strawberry and banana are combined? Orange.

That’s a better CAPTCHA.. applied worldly knowledge.

A more entertaining version has no directions, no cue for robots, though easily defeated by OCR, but only if widespread and only if implemented the same way. Apply deformations as desired.

“not email:”

Where all the letters are blue except “not l er x ed o. e .uk.i” Implies only to use the blue information “email:”. More colors could be used leaving email blue.

What is the sum of the third prime number and the fifth? 14

2012 updates: 

I do NOT endorse the downloadable binaries from the ‘new’ site or any other site Applian has hijacked to promote schlock.


AVOID “freecorder”!!  Applian “free”corder is MALWARE (adware).


Instead all Open Source, all currently trustworthy:

combine acquisition:

with sensible cross-platform conversion:

realtime transcoding [dlna] more cross platform joy:

cross-platform playback of almost any format/container (without screwing over DirectShow filters for those still using windows)
indows suggestion:  MPlayer [Mulder] MPUI full package


xbmc on the inexpensive side  ($35)  (xbmc sd image)

XBMC painless streaming of The Blaze [TV]

some/many of the below links are existentially challenged

# end 2012 updates

OLD vixy alternatives: (fastest) — 100 filesize limit, feed it disposable email [defunct now 2011] — now running “vixy clone script”
defunct: — domain hijacked

old/kludge/not-free: real time transcoding [internets streaming] alternatives

edit: I wish I had harnessed my passion for alternatives categorization into a profitable site.  Who knew alternativeto would prosper

I wish I had rolled my “whereamI” domain use into a public service in the 90s; I would be receiving the vast twit*r income

edit2: If you have been coerced into purchasing an unlimited bandwidth data plan for your mobile phone be sure it has not been limited with *needless* throttling or voip destructive nat.  Both are harmful to accessing [home] real-time-transcoding media streaming to mobile phone.

tv writers on strike? yeah so what? the internet is my DVR

I’ve tried netflix. But forget them. They never gave me “as many movies as I wanted”. I’m not interested in paying for as many movies as netflix deems me worthy to receive. I now get as many movies as I want, with not only no late fees, but no pesky returns, and no annoying processing- or waiting list.

hahahaha I win

My internet DVR is great for TV episodes, too
