Pfft, as if any Windoze users have IE11 installed. Poppycock! Your figure of "80 days to 5" between "dinosaur" and "current" versions of Internet Explorer are of no relevance. You're clearly in the pay of Micro$haft.
"into using a password manager that holds -unique to every site- passwords that I can't even remember myself at 25 characters of complete ASCII gibberish. And you know what? It's easier on top of being more secure."
Bingo. Why would anyone want to remember all of their passwords? I wouldn't even recognise 99% of mine if you showed them to me.
It's a password. It must be unique and secure. With the right procedure in place, this is simple, fast and usable. Anything else is just an excuse.
But my method of creating passwords myself only takes three screens-worth of text to describe and has a mere three caveats! Wait, no I got that step wrong. Oh that site doesn't work with the method because I skipped a section.
Oh those early sites used my old method of simply creating passwords which wasn't as good. Here I can explain it all to you, it's simple!
Or I just type Win R->password->enter.
Create passwords? Remember them? That's what pseudo-random number generators and encryption are for. I haven't got time nor a lax enough attitude towards password management to think I'm better than encryption.
Why would anyone need to "remember" anything other than a handful of passphrases? Let computers remember the 99%. That's the point of them.
Just checked my £30 Timex and it's lost two seconds in about a year. That's what I get for buying cheap. It was worth a bit more retail value - Timex sold me this at wholesale price by way of apology when they couldn't repair my previous Timex. It was 15 years old and they didn't have the parts any more. That cost a whole £40 in 1996.
I'm on my fourth watch and this one even has a date window. I cannot comprehend how a watch can get even smarter!

Trying to get Flash to fall under all of EMET's protections is like trying to hit three moving targets. As soon as Flash gets updated, the executables it uses run under different file names and any specific mitigations are then lost. Thankfully, most applications that are easy meat for EMET's good work are a one-off config.
If you're looking to block access to a given list of domains/host names, Privoxy can be configured to do this and no more. If you're actually looking just to do DNS caching on your grandma's computer, try this from an elevated command prompt:
sc config dnscache start= auto
net start dnscache
Then type out 1000 times: I will not turn off the local DNS caching system.
"The development of TrueCrypt was ended in 5/2014 after Microsoft terminated support of Windows XP." It goes on to list migration instructions. Is this the end for our beloved open source, multi-platform crypto solution? The question is what now? Planned forks? Any recommendations for freely available, open and multi-platform solutions that will allow for moving storage devices from Linux -> Windows -> Mac?"
Despite the fact the linked Windows installer matches the given digital signature and the
Maybe the TrueCrypt developers took all the thanks that we gave them, i.e. nothing but "YOUR CODE QUALITY IS SOMEWHAT UNREADABLE AND USES SOME OLD THINGS!", and have told us to fuck off. Something we rightly deserve.
I clicked on the link of the post's submitter, advised them of the error and a link to this thread, and less than three hours from sending the email it was fixed. I don't pretend to understand the politics between
