I like ads. I don't want to block them, only those from Phorm.

Safari is the answer

Because their complete business model blows up if nobody sees the ads -- that is, if the ads are always blocked. Who will pay them for that?

Safari does it?

In the Guardian today, it says that Safari, unlike other browsers, automatically blocks such ads. Is this true? If so, let's all get Macs!

Where were you when you learned e-voting was unreliable?

DanO

The only thing to do is...

fix some high-profile election so that somebody gets a thousand times as many votes as there are electors, with of course no hard-copy backup for checking. Would they take notice then?

Even less is used...

... if you have a thermostat. Things on standby emit a little heat very efficiently, so you don't use so much of your central heating. You may even be saving!! In this country, anyway, the heating is on most of the year. Of course you could save much more by turning the thermo down by a half degree.
