Check this idiocy!
The password must be fewer than 10 characters. Who the fuck enforces the max length of passwords? And more importantly, why?
Upper password length limit shouldn’t ever exist or if it does, it should be something like max 64 characters which is so high not even most paranoid people would complain about.
To make matters worse, their Twitter account doesn’t exist anymore and they don’t have any other contact. At all. Yay. So, here is their page of “fame”. Years ago I’ve complained about local ISP and Adobe webpages, now it’s this one doing the same nonsense in 2018 when I thought we’ve gone past this point already…
Had problems with making extension for Firefox so I posted it on Twitter. Some dude offered help, I sent him a link to Mozillazine thread where I already posted for help and that’s the moment when Twitter sperged into fucking oblivion. “uh oh you exhibit actions of a bot” (I’m surprised they didn’t say I was a Russian bot) and then the thing just fucking died. When clicking “Verify” the shit just kept on showing 403 error in Firefox so I went to phone where I finished the fucking image captcha at which point Twitter asked me to enter my phone number to “verify”. Erm, how about FUCK YOU Twitter? I’m not giving you my fucking phone number. You fucking pretentious scumbags, locking out user accounts for harmless shit and then fishing phone numbers from users with excuse of “verification”. Been using Twitter to post all sorts of shit for like 3+ years and now you decide I’m a fucking bot. Go fuck yourselves, all of you fuckers at Twitter. Can’t even login using my alternate account to contact dumb fucks at Twitter, no, just cold block fucking everything from my IP. I can’t fucking be bothered to use VPN to bypass this fuckery. Aaargh, what moron runs Twitter? I’m surprised this garbage hasn’t imploded yet because it’s made by imbeciles.
I’d rather stop using fucking Twitter than give you my phone number. So, fuck you. Again.
Just tried to contact Twitter support and you have to be logged in with the locked/suspended account in order to contact them. I can’t fucking login you fucking retards. OH MY FUCKING GOD. It just does nothing when I try to login. What the fuck!?
After I finally managed to contact them and told them I’m not giving them my phone number, they manually unblocked my account. At least something.
Microsoft has introduced several new security features in Windows 10 Spring Update/April Update, one of which is called “Core Isolation” and is designed to prevent attacks from inserting malicious code into high-security processes.
In theory, it’s a great feature. In practice, Microsoft cocked it up. Again. Not with the feature itself, that should work fine, but with controls for it. And I can’t believe this slipped past their QA control given that I noticed the feature being broken in 1 minute after trying the Spring Update.
You can enable it just fine under Security center, but if you for whatever reason want to disable it again, you’re greeted with this message:
I’m the bloody Administrator. What the hell? Well, after some fiddling, I managed to figure out the controls for this thing and created a tool to manage Core Isolation externally.
I present you Windows 10 Core Isolation Control tool:
It’s a simple tool to flip Core Isolation controls ON or OFF regardless of what Security Center interface says. I even made it aware in what state Core Isolation is, so you basically don’t have to use Security Center anymore to control it (or check its status).

Ok, I don’t get one thing with Mozilla and this is also the ONLY reason why I’m not using Firefox at the moment and am forced to use Opera whether I like it or not.
I have 3 systems which have to be connected with Sync function. I also have a phone where I want my bookmarks. And for all the countless pages, I also need tons of secure logins. And frankly, I don’t trust Firefox password manager because it’s really badly designed and doesn’t give me the flexibility I need. It’s far from secure. So, I use tools like Bitwarden or LastPass to handle passwords in a secure way.
And on Android, only way for this to work is to allow lets say LastPass to have Accessibility Access to apps so it can detect login fields inside a browser.
Only problem here is, for some monumentally dumb reason, Firefox for Android doesn’t allow Accessibility Access function AT ALL for privacy/security reasons. That’s the single DUMBEST thing I’ve heard and seen, ever. It’s so stupid they don’t even allow users to turn this crap off. Nope, it’s hardlocked into Firefox browser. Only way to get rid of it is to use Firefox Focus. Which is an useless cut down, dumbed down version of regular Firefox for Android. This one, super privacy and security focused one does work with Accessibility Access for some retarded reason. WTF Mozilla?! WHY? Firefox Focus is useless, it doesn’t even have ANY Sync function. What good are countless passwords if I don’t have the god damn bookmarks to even access pages comfortably?!
Add the damn setting to allow Accessibility Access to interact with Firefox for Android. I don’t care if it’s disabled by default, at least give us a god damn option to disable this crap in Firefox settings so we can at least use LastPass, Bitwarden and similar apps. And I don’t care if they support Oreo login thingie. We’ll get old before people actually get any Oreo updates on their phones. We want the old access back damn it.
This is such oxymoron thing, on one end they want to boost security by blocking access to Firefox, but at the same time, preventing you from using an actual secure password management tools. How on Earth does that make any kind of sense!?
I’m a long time HP user. Had HP printers and currently have 3 laptops from them. Have always been downloading drivers from this page:
Until recently when it got all fucked up and stopped listing ANY downloads. You can select OS type and version all day long and all it will serve you back is We were unable to retrieve the list of drivers for your product. Please select the desired operating system and select “Update” to try again. Yeah, well, I’ve done that countless times and you still don’t list me shit.
This shit worked just fine in January and February of 2018. But since March 2018, this system returns no drivers, no updates nothing for anything I try. I’ve also tried on my smartphone that uses entirely different ISP, entirely different DNS, entirely different everything. Same result. Same across all browsers from Opera to Edge.
Asked HP support on Twitter (I really don’t have the nerves to contact usual tech support for reasons you’ll soon read) to look into it and they wanted my entire list of my personal info for something they need to look into on their own fucking side. You don’t need my home address and phone number, just click the fucking link to your very own service and fix your shit you dumb idiots. Jesus. How fucking hard can it be?
I really hate calling people names because of system failures or glitches, but this bureaucratic bullshit really pisses me off. I’d have to go through 20 pages of e-mails for something they can inspect on their own in freaking 5 minutes and report it to their internal operators responsible for this service. I don’t need this corporate sleaziness of being all slimy around customers, just fix the service someone reports it’s broken.
Cloudflare launched their new free public DNS service yesterday (yeah, funny date to make product announcement on April 1st). But this is no joke. They actually launched this product. In a nutshell, it’s a service like OpenDNS or Google DNS, except it’s the fastest of them all and cares about user privacy.
Primary DNS: 184.108.40.206
Secondary DNS: 220.127.116.11
It is yet unknown if Cloudflare DNS provides any other security features like cache poisoning protection, anti-phishing and malware blocking. Still waiting for their reply on this one, will update as I receive more info.
I’ve also included it on my public DNS list where I feature all DNS services that matter.
I guess I can call this one an Easter Special update for the Spring Event in Killing Floor 2. Updated some of the existing features to be even better and adding few extra goodies that will make gameplay as well as fiddling with INI files more convenient. Happy Easter! 🙂
