Site Update Log

Dead

13 / 03 / 2019

Made the News section into a much more readable format (one news entry for one html file) and hooked them up to the Atom feed. Now you will be notified of any new news I shit out. Try it! I recommend the Liferea RSS client.

12 / 03 / 2019

I've finally added an Atom feed for the site! This will be a much more convenient way to notify you of updates. Anytime an article gets updated, you will receive a notification in your RSS client if you are subscribed (as in, the article will show up as unread again). And I can just add a snippet of info during every update which will tell you what has changed in that particular article. Much better than just throwing it all in a massive update log. And with that, the update log will probably be deprecated soon - when I manage to hook up the news section to the Atom feed as well.

08 / 03 / 2019

Image and text sharing sections added to the Ninja guide.

07 / 03 / 2019

In a sudden burst of motivation I started writing the Ninja's guide to the Internet. This is meant to be a condensed version of everything relevant to Internet privacy (browsers, addons, E-mail, etc...). Since I thought such a guide doesn't really exist, there it is. It's not finished, so watch out for changes.

02 / 03 / 2019

Put up tables of contents in the browser and addon articles. The addon article also had lots of Pale Moon-specific information added in (and will have to include even more later, since it has extensions specifically made for it).

01 / 03 / 2019

HUGE update to the browser article! Completely reconsidered my process and the resulting choices. Also way expanded my reviews and added Librefox.

24 / 02 / 2019

Cleaned up the index page. Made separate pages for stuff that was clogging up the view. Made the link font smaller since the big one was quite an unnecessary eye-rape. Not much motivation for a bigger article right now so I will be sticking to news. But I do have lots of stuff I want to write about still - all I need is that one spark which should come soon enough...

09 / 02 / 2019

I'm starting the News section! Instead of modifying my older articles all the time, I will comment on anything I encounter that interests me in this section. This will also allow me to update more frequently, since I won't always have to create another huge article just for a piece of news. Then, if it supports the stuff I've said in some of my articles, I will mention that as well. Starting with Kenyan government mandates DNA linked national ID and also dumped some old but relevant AI news there (that were in the AI article before).

07 / 02 / 2019

Paranoid.email added to the E-mail report.

In the meantime, Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies has been added to Short video game reviews.

05 / 01 / 2019

No updates today - the first time since creation of the update log. Will probably start writing some new articles soon.

04 / 01 / 2019

03 / 01 / 2019

23 / 12 / 2018

And now all of them.

22 / 12 / 2018

Archived some of the links that weren't yet.

21 / 12 / 2018

Added a navigation panel to the Mozilla report.

20 / 12 / 2018

Aaaaaaaand it's done! Wrote The Hydra section and finished the Mozilla article.

19 / 12 / 2018

Wrote subsection Other giants

18 / 12 / 2018

Wrote subsection Second head of Google

17 / 12 / 2018

Started writing Mozilla's Endgame

16 / 12 / 2018

Wrote the What would Mozilla do section; now only the Endgame remains!

15 / 12 / 2018

Wrote the Mozilla's doublespeak section.

14 / 12 / 2018

Refuted Principles 3, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 of the Mozilla manifesto - which means the whole thing is now covered.

13 / 12 / 2018

Refuted Principle 5 of the Mozilla manifesto.

12 / 12 / 2018

Refuted Principle 4 of the Mozilla manifesto.

11 / 12 / 2018

Archived the links in that section and fixed some HTML mistakes.

10 / 12 / 2018

Started writing "Refuting the manifesto" section in Mozilla - Devil Incarnate.

09 / 12 / 2018

And archived the links in there

08 / 12 / 2018

Added subsection "Long time volunteer DISRESPECTED AND BANNED".

07 / 12 / 2018

Cleaned up and added some information to that section.

06 / 12 / 2018

Added a section "Shitty developer attitude" to the Mozilla article.

05 / 12 / 2018

Modified the other themes as well. Re-add them to Stylus if you use them to see the changes.

04 / 12 / 2018

Cleaned up the HTML and CSS. Now using header tags instead of classes. The reading space has been narrowed since some people said it's hard to read. Some colors have been changed, like the link color. Just the main theme has been modified so far.

03 / 12 / 2018

Heavily improved the Shady marketing section - now it focuses more on specifying the marketing tactics used and how they affect you. Archived the links as well.

02 / 12 / 2018

Wrote the "Shady marketing" section.

01 / 12 / 2018

ProtonVPN paragraph added.

30 / 11 / 2018

Archived the links in that section.

29 / 11 / 2018

28 / 11 / 2018

Started the "People over profit?" piece on Mozilla. And archived some links there.

27 / 11 / 2018

Finished the Freedom is slavery section of Mozilla - Devil Incarnate. It is long and, in my opinion, very damning to Mozilla indeed!

26 / 11 / 2018

FastMail added to the E-mail report.

25 / 11 / 2018

Runbox added to the E-mail report.

24 / 11 / 2018

WebRTC Control added to the list of recommended addons. It is really important to use it with a VPN or Tor; so it is listed right there after uMatrix.

23 / 11 / 2018

I've been meaning to write this one for a long time - but put it off for some reason. Actually, I just knew it would be a gargantuan task - but I simply couldn't take Mozilla's abuse anymore (despite not using their software), so there it is: Mozilla - Devil Incarnate. Just one section is finished for now, but the others will soon be coming.

22 / 11/ 2018

The providers in the E-mail report have been arranged roughly from worst to best; a navigation panel was also added at the top.

21 / 11 / 2018

Autistici's section has been written. Shortened the summary since most of that information really shouldn't have been there - it was only relevant to RiseUp and Autistici, respectively.

20 / 11 / 2018

RiseUp has been split from Autistici and thoroughly reviewed. Yet to finish Autistici.

19 / 11 / 2018

Disroot section got the treatment it deserves (positively!)

18 / 11 / 2018

Same as below + added a small summary at the end of Dismail's section.

17 / 11 / 2018

Updated Dismail section in the E-mail report. Also slightly modified some other sections.

16 / 11 / 2018

An Additional AI developments section added to The dangers of artificial intelligence article. There I will include recent news about AI that happened after I wrote the article, to further support the conclusion made in it. I will be adding them as soon as I come across interesting ones, so check the article for updates often. 3 pretty worrying examples for a start.

15 / 11 / 2018

Teknik now has actual analysis of its privacy policy, and it's knocked down a peg.

14 / 11 / 2018

StartMail's section updated. Posteo described as the best paid service; earlier I thought it was StartMail, but after carefully considering everything, Posteo is slightly better.

13 / 11 / 2018

Cock has been enlarged (dumb joke for the day...). I was way too harsh on it; might be the best choice aside from the three community-run e-mail providers.

12 / 11 / 2018

Scryptmail's section expanded.

11 / 11 / 2018

ProtonMail's turn today!

10 / 11 / 2018

Tutanota's section heavily enhanced.

09 / 11/ 2018

Hushmail added to the E-mail report.

08 / 11 / 2018

Removed spaces from links that weren't supposed to be there.

07 / 11 / 2018

Huge update today! The E-mail report has had its VFEmail and Safe-Mail.nl sections heavily updated; another provider - Posteo - has been thoroughly reviewed as well. Changed the "rice" pictures in Linux Essentials to prettier ones (that's really how my system looks right now); information about torsocks has also been added. Removed the "add new panel for clock" thing because it isn't really useful; instead, replaced it with a generic panel section. All the styles have had the max-width parameter set for images - this means a big one won't stretch the screen (forcing you to scroll) anymore.

06 / 11 / 2018

Mailfence section heavily expanded in the E-mail report.

05 / 11 / 2018

A feature creep section added to Principles of bad software design.

04 / 11 / 2018

Mentioned the EFAIL attack in the E-mail report.

03 / 11 / 2018

Claws Mail added to software recommendations.

02 / 11 / 2018

No content updates. Changed the title of fake initiatives article to the new one. Fixed wrongly formatted archive links where the space was part of the link (I really couldn't let that shit slide...). Deleted the old, unused files.

01 / 11 / 2018

The fake initiatives article has had a section on external link filters added.

31 / 10 / 2018

The E-mail report now has a proper introduction; also, a section on encryption got added at the end.

30 / 10 2018

Sid Meier's Pirates article got another lift - I clarified some of the minigames, and elaborated on just WHY is this game so good instead of simply listing what you can do in it. However I've also noticed a flaw that I had to mention if I'm aiming to be a honest reviewer. Added a small snippet to the Claire section in the addon guide. The E-mail report had its Disroot section updated. Grammar has been fixed in some of the articles.

29 / 10 2018

Expanded the game review.

28 / 10 / 2018

Welcome to the new and hopefully mainstay video game section! First up - Sid Meier's Pirates!

27 / 10 / 2018

I have made the names of the addons into links in the addon guide - at least the recommended ones.

26 / 10 / 2018

A section has been added to Principles of bad software design. The program names in Useful Linux software you might not know about are now links to the websites of the program in question.

25 / 10 / 2018

Stylus added to the list of recommended addons.

24 / 10 / 2018

No content updates - but a new theme! Check it out, it might look familiar...

23 / 10 / 2018

As promised - dumped the sand and ice themes; you can download them as styles for use in the Stylus extension, though. Added a section to the fake initiatives article - "Hidden or forced updates". Capitalism and AI articles now have subtitles breaking them up; should be easier to read.

22 / 10 / 2018

Cleaned up the index pages. Every article has been put in one of three categories instead of crammed together; though many of them could fit into two or even three, I assigned them to the one they fit the most. Forgot Neomailbox link in the E-mail report - it is now in; as well as some grammar improvements. Note: I will most likely be removing the sand and ice themes from the site. Updating and uploading stuff three times is simply too much pain in the ass (style switching really needs CGI, I guess...). Ghost theme looks the best of these - the others will be released as styles for use in the Stylus extension, so they won't completely die; I will also be able to make more styles that way someday.

21 / 10 / 2018

Mailfence and Neomailbox added to the E-mail report. New article is up! Fake privacy (or other) initiatives. I think the name says it all...enjoy reading!

20 / 10 / 2018

Not much motivation today. Only archived the links in the E-mail report.

19 / 10 / 2018

HUGE update to the E-mail report. Most sections heavily expanded upon. Every provider name can also now be clicked on to send you to their website. And yet more improvements will be coming.

18 / 10 / 2018

Improved the sand theme - no more puke green. Why was it there in the first place? Well, I designed the theme under redshift, and it looked fine there - not so with regular blue light though.

17 / 10 / 2018

Added sections on safe-mail.net and safe-mail.nl to E-mail providers - which one to choose? Further modifications coming soon...

16 / 10 / 2018

Archived links in The dangers of artificial intelligence. Centered the lists since the CSS default is 40px to the right, and that's fucking ugly. Fixed a background style mistake (two different colors) in the sand theme. Now I can go back to actual creative work...hopefully.

15 / 10 / 2018

Added archive links to Capitalism will die - but will it take us with it?

14 / 10 / 2018

Added archive links to Avoiding "The Botnet" - impossible?. Next three articles had no useful links to archive, so only the last two remain (plus the E-mail one which I missed because I will be modifying it soon anyway, so might as well do it all in one swing).

13 / 10 / 2018

Archived links in articles Salix OS - a hidden gem among Linux distributions and Refuting Freetardism. Added actual links to the articles that are mentioned in the update log, instead of just their titles.

12 / 10 / 2018

Archived links in articles Essential privacy (or other) addons as well as How to choose a browser for your daily use?. Lifting the veil - how to test browsers for spyware had no links that would be useful to archive. Added information about certain addons breaking some websites. Fixed a few typos. And, of course, created the Site Update Log! Hopefully, it will motivate me to do more stuff here...

11 / 10 / 2018

Archived all links in the article Technological slavery.

10 / 10 / 2018

Added articles Capitalism will die - but will it take us with it? and The dangers of artificial intelligence.

9 / 10 / 2018

Added article Technological slavery.
