Firefox for Android finally supports password managers like Bitwarden or LastPass!

For a long time I was basically forced to use Opera for Android because Firefox didn’t support accessibility services, meaning you couldn’t use password managers like LastPass or Bitwarden with it. And that was a huge deal because when you’re using long and complex passwords, you have to rely on these. But today, I tried it again to see if it supports this yet and guess what, Firefox for Android now supports that!

You can finally use Bitwarden or LastPass with Firefox on Android! Fiery Fox, I’m coming back 🙂 I liked Opera, but Firefox being open source and now only browser with own rendering engine, I always liked it more. It was just that lack of support for password managers that was a total showstopper for me. Not anymore 🙂

Killing Floor 2 Tweaker 2.4 released!

KF2

Quite significant update this time around. Made a huge overhaul of new Rendering Distance tweak, offering several easy to use presets and added an unofficial fix for a crash due to faulty auto set Unreal Engine parameters.

2.4 (2018-11-26)

  • Renamed “Extreme Draw Distance” to “Rendering Distance” and moved it from “Graphics Settings” to main KF2 Tweaker selection menu.
  • “Rendering Distance” tweak section now offers 5 rendering distance presets ranging from Ultra Low for people who need every drop of performance to Ultra for people who run top of the line computers and want maximum visual quality with zero objects popping into view, anywhere.
  • Added “Compatibility Patches” feature which currently fixes game sometimes crashing to Windows desktop with BugSplat dialog when trying to join server/map due to faulty auto set Unreal Engine Garbage Collection parameters on some systems (mine included).

Simple Shutdown Timer released!

SimpleShutdownTimer.png

It’s nothing fancy really, just a simple quick frontend for integrated Windows shutdown parameters. I made it for myself when I watch TV or Twitch on my laptop in bed as I go to sleep and I don’t want stream playing till morning draining entire battery, I usually set it to 1 or 2 hours and then it entirely shuts down the laptop, allowing me to watch TV like this for few days on a single battery charge instead of draining it all in one night. And I thought it might come in handy for you guys as well so I just released it to public.

It’s literally a simple sleep timer for what I’m using it which is why it only goes up to 4 hours and doesn’t have very granular control, because there is no need for it. If you need more granular control or more advanced controls, I suggest you look for something else. This one was made as simple as possible on purpose.

Killing Floor 2 Tweaker 2.3.5 released!

KF2

2.3.5 (2018-11-23)

  • Added “Extreme Draw Distance” tweak

This feature dramatically enhances draw (rendering) distance of decals and other minor objects in the game world beyond Ultra settings. Most notable is on Zed Landing and Black Forest where grass on the ground, bushes and other “greens” are not popping into existence at certain rather short distances, but are rendered as far away as eyes can see.

pCloud cloud storage amazing Black Friday 2018 lifetime deals!

As you may have noticed I’ve talked about pCloud in the past because it offers a generous up to 20GB of free cloud storage (you can get up to 20GB by using referral links) and it’s one of rare ones that has great Android app, Windows app and also web interface. There is only one other service that looks this good and it’s called AllSync which I’ll talk about some other time.

Now I’m gonna talk about pCloud LIFETIME deals (they consider lifetime as 99 years) they are offering for 2018’s Black Friday. They’ve run similar deals in the past so I kept my eyes on them.

It’s 75% off their LIFETIME plans and it’s 122.5€ for 500GB storage and 245€ for 2TB. TWO FREAKING TERABYTES!

LINK TO THE DEAL:

They will run the deals for 5 days and there is a countdown, so if you’re interested, grab it because I think prices are amazing. The 2TB plan pays itself off in 5 years. I’ve been using OneDrive and Google Drive for far longer so it’s perfectly reasonable and it’s freaking 2TB. I couldn’t find any other cloud storage that offers such massive storage for this price. None.

There is just one caveat, their highly advertised CryptoFolder (zero knowledge end to end encryption) ISN’T part of the main plans. You need to pay for that separately and it’s 125€. That sucks a bit, but oh well, I guess you can’t have it all.

pCloud seems like a reliable option, has been on the market for very long, has huge user base, good prices and tons of cloud storage. Oh and they are based in Switzerland so privacy is taken very seriously as well. Especially if you also buy CryptoFolder option which prevents anyone accessing your encrypted files even if they somehow gain access to their servers.

Killing Floor 2 Tweaker 2.3 released!

KF2

2.3 (2018-11-09)

  • Added “Protect Key Bindings” feature to prevent unwanted random Key Bindings resets (sets KFInput.ini as read-only). Please report if controls still reset even when protection is enabled (changing Enhanced Dosh Throwing resets the protection!).
  • Added “Long Distance Detailed Shadows” under Graphics Settings. Makes shadows far away more detailed without the higher performance hit of the “Ultra High Quality Shadows” mode.
  • Few text changes

Gab is back online!

After getting kicked offline by Joyent because Gab happened to have that shooter asshole among its users (gee, why no one booted Twitter and Facebook for having same retard among their users as well?) is now back online. It still has some hiccups, but it’s working. Will probably take a bit for it to become fully operational.

All this dicking around and pissing on Gab is clearly politically motivated because they did nothing wrong and nothing different than how Twitter or Facebook operate. And yet Gab is getting fucked in the ass on all possible ends, but Twitter and Facebook, nothing at all. Facebook even ran fucking white supremacist ads in the meanwhile which means they actually took money from someone and ran with it and they are just “sorry” now. Fuck off.

I hope this desperate censoring of Gab bullshit will ends soon. And kudos to Andrew Torbo for not giving up.
