San Francisco - The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), privacy company Disconnect and a coalition of Internet companies have announced a stronger “Do Not Track” (DNT) setting for Web browsing—a new policy standard that, coupled with privacy software, will better protect users from sites that try to secretly follow and record their Internet activity, and incentivize advertisers and data collection companies to respect a user’s choice not to be ...

Have you seen the news battery status and other "metrics" can be used to track us?? I just did. Man, it is getting difficult to be a visitor to sites. We are all numbers, identifiable and "trackable" :-/

Nope, not everyone ;)
Just most of 'em :P

Kidding, most people here in the US are decent people. Then there are those who dwell under the proverbial bridge, trying to extort those who try to cross it...

It is safe here, +Gonzalo Velasco C.. I ride at night all the time. Of course, my bike is always well lit, too.

So, over the past month or so, I've been giving the latest antiX Linux distro a good testing on my T61. I love the minimal, well, everything about it. It runs iceWM and actually runs cooler on my T61 than Fedora, Debian or Slackware. The only issue I'm experiencing is that it seems to drop the ethernet connection every once in a while and the only way to get it back is to wait for quite a while and let it reconnect on its own or restart. Can't figure out what the problem could be. Wireless has been no problem at all, on the other hand.

100 million Americans rode a bike at least once last year, but only 14% take two or more rides weekly. Let’s talk about why most Americans don't bike to work.

Hands down, the best coffee shop in Belleville. There are other coffee shops in town but they don't even compare. The owner and employees are the friendliest people around, they have Vegan options for frozen yogurt, they serve homemade breakfast sandwiches with, again, Vegan options, and the coffee is locally roasted, organic, and single-sourced. This is a downtown treasure that my family and I LOVE supporting (almost on a daily basis).

Old Town Coffee Tea & Spice is exactly what my wife and I have been looking for since we moved to the DC Metro area almost two years ago. We love good coffee and the selection here is wonderful. Whole bean, many choices, very affordable and the staff is very helpful. It's located in Old Town, Alexandria, which is a very nice bonus since I'm always looking for excuses to go there. We will be going back again and again and telling all of our coffee drinking friends about this place.

I love Irish Pubs (good Irish Pubs) and O'Connell's didn't disappoint. My wife and I are new to the area, having just moved here from Indianapolis and love finding new places where we can hang out and have a good beer. Located in Old Town Alexandria, this pub fits right in with the "old charm" of the neighborhood. The staff is very friendly, the decor is wonderful (dark woods everywhere - looks very Irish), the food is very good (but as a Vegan, I would like to see more options). My favorite, and only real option, is the hummus/veggie platter, which, is very good. For $8, you get enough to feed more than one person. They have a great beer selection on tap but I would like to see more local selections. At the time of our visit, there was just one local beer on tap. Also, it would be nice to have wireless connectivity available. This would be a great place to come for a beer early in the afternoon and get a bit of client work done. Overall, I highly recommend O'Connell's and I am absolutely positive that my wife and I will be back again and again. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of the lack of Vegan food options and the lack of wireless connectivity.

My wife and kids and I spent a beautiful November day at the Eastern Market. Regarding the food, I'm a Vegan and there really wasn't anything for me but my wife and kids found some great options. The shopping is the part of the visit that we enjoyed the most. We just moved to the area and we were looking for some local art to hang on the walls. We met some great local artists and purchased some great art. We are really looking forward to our next visit. The Eastern Market is definitely a gem in a great city!

4 months back, I was in the market for a new web host. I had tried many of the larger hosts but none of them really impressed me. I experienced many outages with no explanation as to why the outages even happened. I decided to start looking at some of the smaller companies hoping for a better experience. I moved my site to IQnection and I couldn't be happier. Great customer service and my sites run great. In the 4 months that I've been with them there has only been one outage and, as it turns out, the problem wasn't even with their equipment. Customers were updated regarding the issue via social media until the issue was resolved. That is exactly the kind of service that I was looking for. If you're in the market for a new web host, I would definitely give them a try. They are very affordable and offer some great plans.

My wife and kids and I spent a beautiful November day at the Eastern Market. While there, we decided to try brunch at Tunnicliff's Tavern just across the street. Our visit didn't disappoint. Great food, excellent and friendly service, great atmosphere and some great beer on tap. The only complaint (and it's really not a complaint) is that there weren't many choices for local beer. Add a few more local selections and there wouldn't be a reason to eat or drink at any other pub/tavern in the neighborhood. All in all, an excellent visit and we can't wait to drop in again.
