Zumindest in den Niederlanden haben die Piraten noch lustige Ideen: "In Amsterdam wordt het parkeerbeheer gedaan door het bedrijf Cition. Dat bedrijf heeft van uw parkeergegevens een verdienmodel gemaakt, mede dankzij hypermoderne scanauto's. Met zo'n 70.000 controles per dag harkte het bedrijf 166 miljoen euro binnen in 2013. En dat niet alleen, uw parkeergegevens worden ook doorgespeeld naar instanties als de Belastingdienst. Anoniem parkeren is er niet meer bij, de overheid weet nog precies in welk parkeervak u zeven jaar geleden uw auto neerzette. Tijd om die fuckers eens een koekje van eigen deeg te geven."

FastFilm: Due to a request from FamilySearch to not download any images to the harddrive, I have taken a new approach and come out with a TamperMonkey / GreaseMonkey script that loads images faster from the FamilySearch.org website without preloading them. I recommend using Google Chrome, but Firefox works as well. It detects whether you are going forward or backwards to preload the page. 

Simply follow the instructions: 
1. Install TamperMonkey for Chrome (recommended) or 
GreaseMonkey for Firefox 
2. Go to http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/181118 
3. Click the green Install button 
4. Go to FamilySearch https://familysearch.org/search 
5. Make sure that it is enabled, if it is working you should see Inline image 1or Inline image 2 in the top right of your browser.
