good to know... and a fix is availble for Firefox. Yay firefox, boo WebRTC.
WebRTC IP Leak VPN / Tor IP Test. WebRTC is a communication protocol that relies on JavaScript that can leak your actual IP address from behind your VPN. While software like NoScript prevents this, it's probably a good idea to block this protocol directly as well, just to be safe.

It's TLS people, not SSL

TLS is easier to say, SSL is old and depricated. But if I say TLS, most people don't know what I'm talking about.  Gah! Get with the program!

Just appreciating Reader Mode in Firefox for Android. I was on the bus reading (light on dark), stepped out, it switched automatically to dark on light, then when I got to the office - back to light on dark!

You can also enabled Reader Mode in Firefox for desktop, which is pretty sweet

Maybe we can build a complete Pi for under $300?
 
NEW TUTORIAL: Mini Raspberry Pi Handheld Notebook
https://learn.adafruit.com/mini-raspberry-pi-handheld-notebook-palmtop

This is a Raspberry Pi notebook. Our 3D Printed enclosure turns the Pi 2 and a 3.5” PiTFT into a sweet retro mini laptop. The mini chiclet keyboard is both adorable and wireless. It features a trackpad, but you can also use the Touch screen on the PiTFT.

Rechargable through the PowerBoost 1000C, the 2000mAh battery fits between the screen and the Raspberry Pi. 3D Printed hinges attach to the enclosure, making this a tiny portable computer!

Introduction

I'm just this guy, you know? 
 
I am a family man, father of three lovely boys. Happily married for 15 years, currently living in Hobart, Tasmania. I play musical instruments (Trombone/Timpani/Traps) and I hold a 2nd Dan ("black belt") in Taekwondo. I like Open Architecture computers, Open Source software, and Open Crown hats. Akubra, of course :D

On a professional level, I am a Computer Applications Support Engineer, focusing on the application of technology to business functions in finance and government, and bridging between the Developer, BA/QA  and Systems worlds, which I've been doing since before there was a "DevOps" movement. I have worked with major I.T. firms as well as a government owned forest management organisation. I am an experienced cat herder and specialize in fitting round pegs to square holes. Handy in a tight squeeze to help get that late project of yours over the line.

My strengths include systems administration and automation, configuration management, database design, development and implementation, change management, incident response and root-cause analysis. I know a very little about an awful lot of tech' -- enough to shoot myself in the foot and take a leg off. People seem to think this makes me a good person to come to when they are in a bind.

So far I've delivered.
