Regardless how static a site is attackers are free to inject any script code they wish in the HTML page on Http.

o Fix all broken internal links. Xenu's Link Sleuth is good program (and a hilarious name).

o Never remove old pages, just update them. This prevents braking incoming backlinks.

o Take a look at letsencrypt.org. (Avoid halfway-HTTPS like CloudFlare etc)

o (etc)

Cover all the basics and keep the money.

Thanks will check out the link Sleuth - yeah, very funny name. TY

We have proof. So far we already have detected a planet with Earth-like conditions (called Earth). Life formed on it. Possibly several times independantly.

The statistics for life on very earth-like planets are staggering.

But this line of thinking eventually leads to Fermi Paradox.

The apparent size and age of the universe suggest that many technologically advanced extraterrestrial civilizations ought to exist. However, this hypothesis seems inconsistent with the lack of observational evidence to support it.

1/1. Sample size seems pretty shitty. Maybe if we find any other form of life in the galaxy OFF this planet, we might be able to bound the probability of it forming at all.

How about a 'Block all downgrade Redirects' feature. Many sites supports HTTPS but forces a downgrade redirect, 301 or 302, to http.

-----


How would that work? If the site is sending you a redirect, then they aren't sending you the content.

The NSA and other agencies around the world already has you targeted. Tor makes you safer. Tor makes you aware of risks. This is also good since you are now better suited to defend yourself accordingly.

It becomes more complicated as they then act on those predictions. Thus mucking up said predictions. And by doing so requires new predictions (expensive guesses).

Hopefully the kids learns exactly this. How to get rid of the Google lock-in, and installs something that unlocks the full potential of the hardware.

-----


Google actually has lots of documentation on how to do that.

'Release early, release often.' This suggests quick and dirty code is better than slow and mature code.

Though worse code benefits the most by having well-enough made Comments.

Things that glimmers like gold in phones and computers and wires, are gold plated. It's likely worth the time to pluck out the shiniest parts and save them in a pile. A pile that grows in value over time. And increases in value the larger it gets.

Also, it's fun to take things apart.

-----


Gold plating uses incredibly small amounts of gold. You would have to have a huge pile, and spend a huge amount of time creating that pile, to come up with any noticeable value. Unless you're doing it automated, on an industrial scale, I very much doubt you can even get within an order of magnitude of minimum wage.

I remember a few years ago seeing a book of gold leaf on sale at an art store. Normally it was something like $80, but on sale, it was $30. I was wondering how they could be making money on that. I did the research and found out that a typical book of gold leaf only had about $10 worth of gold in it (at the time).

Gold leaf is incredibly thin.

one of the most known italian chefs, Gualtiero Marchesi, is known for preparing gold leaf risotto, which while appearing as something only the fabled edonists of the 1% can obtain, is actually something anyone can make at home (and edible).

Most likely the filesharing is next to be censored. I can smell it a mile away. This has nothing whatsoever to do with bad porn at all. Porn is the excuse to get the censorship framework firmly in place.
