I've also found OpenDNS to be good, but only for blocking spam, it's not nearly as good as even the best paid ones for blocking problem websites.

Hadn't heard of the other two you mention in your post though.

Found a couple of others. Zscaler offers several free browser plugins and other tools that do some specialized web security things, such as prevents 'like-jacking' on Facebook, something few people know about. Several are browser-specific although most support multiple browsers (stated which). http:...

Forgeries are more than likely, if it is correct that the font has never been released generally. Very common to find knockoff fonts, they're usually found in so-called 'free' software sites, or P2P sites, the same places pirated entertainment content is usually found in. EDIT: Searched for it via s...

I think my ward has a box that may be running Win7 on it, because the task bar looks like Win7 (having used Win7 at Rootstech's cybercafe). We just used 3.4.3 Sunday to fill out the stake report for the HP group leadership I am in and no hitches, no glitches. However, the monitor appears to be an ol...

Alan, I'm running from one thing to another today, and I haven't had any time to check the Wiki or the new tech site for STS people, is there anything in either about the sun outage thing? I could write a good description of what it does given that I've followed broadcasting for the last 30 years. A...

I wonder if the failure of both the primary and backup systems was what caused the Tier 3 teams to be swamped with calls last Thursday. I did hear that the FamilySearch Tier 3 team had to cancel a regularly-scheduled 'FamilySearch Wiki Technical Meeting' last Thursday due to the load of calls they w...

The sun problem (the satellite passing directly in front of the sun's disk) also affected DirecTV viewers who were watching on BYUtv. Known to happen every early March and early October for the US birds, different times of the year for other parts of the world depending on latitude, this is common, ...

Alan, Tier 3 over at FamilySearch knows of a huge header/footer problem with the FamilySearch page, we've discussed that at length over the past couple of months in the FamilySearch Wiki Technical Meeting, and even they are having some real difficulties with resolving their issues. This is going to ...

There were probably some correlation approvals that didn't get complete in time to get anything out before the annual curriculum ordering instructions were sent out. In fact, if you go to the page and select some of the units of the new curriculum that will be used later in the year, it will just sa...

The dropouts I heard were during choir numbers. Our dish is on the northwest of the building by the north wall, but is far enough from it for good line of sight and no trees. Broadcasting engineers who set up low-power translators for larger stations usually are made aware of this by the FCC, but th...
