Hardware & Technology / Privacy Badger repair CAUTION
« on: October 20, 2018, 02:43:56 PM »
I noticed PB icon wasn't showing in my Chrome extensions. When I checked, it was marked "Corrupted" and showed a "Repair" button.  When I repaired it, it simply re-installed PB and overwrote my much-modified cookie database.  I had exported a copy a few weeks ago and could upload it, but would have lost a few hours work otherwise.  In this instance, "Repair" was misleading.

Hardware & Technology / I need a W10 crapbook
« on: October 17, 2018, 04:22:05 PM »
The latest w10 update reportedly requires 10gb of space!! On top of that, the new G Chrome update has apparently increased the cpu hawg factor.  Louise rarely opens her cheap travel laptop and the update stack bricked it.   I'll assign one of my old ones to travel duty, but will need to eventually replace it for convenience. I have others lying about, so there's no rush.

Given that 16g ram is the new reliability threshold, this limits the cheapest choices pretty quickly.  Lenovo, Dell, and HP seem to be the only brands that are coming up on Amz.

Added: It's GOT to run Tampermonkey.

Water Cooler / Federal flood insurance has a cap
« on: October 11, 2018, 02:13:09 AM »
NFIP was mentioned in the hurricane thread.  The media often misrepresents it as subsidized full coverage. It has a limit of $250k on residential and $500k commercial.  Soooo, those million-dollar beach cottages that are swept away? The owner takes a big hit unless he's bought wildly expensive Excess Flood Insurance from Lloyd's or somesuch.
