You covered the basics pretty decently. However, you say
"If the line does not go away after a day, go to the doctor or hospital".
Don't wait. If you see a line like this, go directly to an ER. It's a sign of severe infection, and it can and does kill people.
FYI it’s actually over 400 free classes through all ivy leagues
Edit: I’m doing one right now through Dartmouth

This is also why credential stuffing is such a problem. People use the same password everywhere, so one hack of a vulnerable site/service could expose all your logins at more important places (banks, utilities).
It’s relevant to this scam, because they could take a compromised password from a recent, innocuous hack, and then bluff that it’s your email password. For a lot of people, there’s a good chance that it is the same password.
Check https://haveibeenpwned.com/ and use a password manager.
Edit: added example
I recommend Imagus. It's for Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Safari and Maxathon.
Hover Free is also viable, but it's been abandoned and it's only for Chrome.
AdBlock and AdBlock Plus are different softwares. AdBlock Plus have not been purchased, AdBlock has. Also, the Acceptable Ads program is 'not' a bought spot. It's a whitelist with non intrusive ads which you can opt out of.
There's an application called F.lux (I use it on iOS and Yosemite) that will automatically dim as the sun sets, it lets you selct the color temperature (for day and night) as well as set the time for 'sundown' as well as DST, etc. Definiely helps on those long days in front of screens.
It's been posted before on a number of subreddits, but here's a link https://justgetflux.com/
So many red flags. "Dear customer" instead of using your username. "We constantly implementing". "Paypal" instead of "PayPal". "ACT NOW OR YOU'LL BE PUNISHED IF YOU DON'T". "With friendship your" (that's just weird). And I'm guessing that link doesn't point to https://www.paypal.com.
Doesn't seem any different from all of the other terribly-crafted PayPal phishing attempts that have been circulating for years.
From their website:
We believe privacy and security are fundamental human rights, so we also provide a free version of ProtonVPN to the public. Unlike other free VPNs, there are no catches. We don't serve ads or secretly sell your browsing history. ProtonVPN Free is subsidized by ProtonVPN paid users. If you would like to support online privacy, please consider upgrading to a paid plan for faster speeds and more features.
The most useful website I've ever gotten from lists like this is http://10minutemail.com/ - for when you need an email to confirm an account on some site you don't care about and don't want junk mail from.
Stop it. Stop it. Stop it.
God this is awful. Anyways is the adverbial genitive of anyway. It is not wrong by any standard. No one is indicating that the word is plural with the morpheme -s.
God fucking damn folk etymologies and the OPs that continue them.
How many times do we have to say
Whatever your use case is, you're adding a malicious middleman in the middle of all your traffic. They are probably selling your data, including spyware or worse malware in their VPN clients, recording your IP and traffic, and any other underhanded path to more profit. Do you think they run their VPN on good will, hugs, and rainbows? How many times do known shitty VPNs like Hola and HideMyAss have to exploit and sell out their users before this stops?
Paid VPNs are not always good either, but they at least have a functional business model. They have community and employee reputations, usually open source clients, and strong legal protections in their jurisdictions.
Come to /r/VPN or /r/privacy or for recommendations or ask me. I can give you recommendations based on what you're looking for and what I've personally used. VPNs are typically around $4/month and well worth it.
This is a good example of why YSK about oldversion.com, which allows you to download previous releases of software. It's most useful for going back to the version right before a program got bloated, be it by spyware or features.
For instance, they have versions of Daemon Tools to June of 2005.
someone didnt actually read whats going on. This isnt true at all.
adblock is letting companies buy 'reasonable ads'.. THIS IS SHARED WITH CONTENT CREATORS. Thats the freaken point. Now the content creator doesnt even have to go through the adblock ad service, they can be like reddit here, and just only do acceptable ads and then get whitelisted by adblock and get 100% of their revenue.
If they dont, they can CHOOSE to go through the adblock ad exchange and put ads on their site and share revenue with adblock.
Seriously what OP is saying just is NOT true.
here is how you get whitelisted for having your own ads
AND HERE IS THEIR NEW PROGRAM OF REVENUE SHARING. using theri ad exchange.
>It’ll begin doing that through an ad marketplace, which will allow blogs and other website operators to pick out so-called “acceptable” ads and place them on their pages.
they put the adblock ads on their site THEMSELVES.. its all theri choice. They can even tell adblock to fuck off.
YSK: some people who post to YSK might not know what they are talking about and you should always double check.
(and users can turn off even acceptable ads if they want none.. i'm an ublock origin user, but i like this adblock program.)
I've done this since January 2014. I've accumulated about $40 in surveys. It's nice to get free movie rentals or apps when you need them.

Ah, I see my extension, Open Reddit NSFW links in Incognito window, is famous once again.
Two things I want to point out:
The extension does NOT modify anything you post. So, if you have the extension installed and post a link to an Amazon product, the link will NOT have my referral code.
The extension does NOT modify links with a referral code. I don't want to take referrals away from other people, so I wrote the code so that it ONLY modifies "bare" links.
If you find the extension useful, it's a great way to support my development and show support. It doesn't take any effort on your part, nor does it cost you a thing. However, if you find the extension useful and still don't like it, you can disable the link conversion in the options.
You can also use /r/privacytoolsio's about:config tweaks if you're that concerned.
Cybersecurity is a lot like /r/Watches. It looks nice from outside the community but it's easy to get sucked in quick and you might go overkill if you don't check yourself.^^lol
There's also an app called Countable (Android/iOS) that lets you contact your senators and representatives. It will show you which bills Congress is voting on each week, inform you of the pros and cons of each bill, and then let you send a personalized email to your senators or representative. I have gotten back several emails as well as a proper letter with the fancy little US Senate watermark.
Check it out!
To everyone saying "lol no way suckers!", Two points:
Good! You should be skeptical. Ask questions. Take privacy and security seriously. However...
In this case, you need not worry. I encourage you to research for yourselves and make your own decision, however the creator of the site is well-known in the security community and actually has several projects like this related to infosec, as well as a ton of authored content: https://haveibeenpwned.com/About
And from https://haveibeenpwned.com/Privacy :
"Searching for an email address only ever retrieves the address from storage then returns it in the response, the searched address is never explicitly stored anywhere"
I recommend using an email app that "sandboxes" the access and restricts them to only wiping the email client.
Two that I have used are Nine and Touchdown. Both have a free trial, ~~I don't recall if Nine is paid or not~~ both cost $10. Thanks for the reminder /u/shortbusorf.
YSAK how to disable all of the junk that comes with Windows 10 if you choose to (or accidentally) install it. The easiest method I found is to use DisableWinTracking. Get the EXE, check the top section of boxes, click "Go," restart.
If you have a decent driving record, it should not be much more for additional coverage anyway. I wouldn't recommend having the minimum.
If you've ever gotten a ticket or an accident in the last 5 years, obtain a copy of your Driver History Abstract from the DMV or your insurance company. Wait until the month your points get reduced before shopping around (1 or 2 year mark from incident). Taking a $20 online defensive driving course can reduce premiums too.
Take steps to improve your credit score. You should be doing this regardless but many insurance companies are unfairly basing premiums off your credit profile.
Most of all, SHOP AROUND. It's so easy to put your info online, check at least 6 companies. I recently switched and my annual premium for 3 cars went down by $2000.

People who read this might also be interested in Unpaywall. They have a a handy browser extension that immediately lets you access papers for free if a free version exists somewhere.

That's the whole point of acceptable ads. Ads that do not inject malware and are not intrusive. The whole idea is to make the internet a better place, where content authors can still have ads to make money, as long as they adhere to the guidelines of not fucking shit up everywhere.
You can read about the whitelist here.
Or you could chomp on an apple! These two items have something similar in common. They are both hard and require you to chew on them for you to eat them. It ends up waking you up more than coffee! You use so many muscles when you chew and if the object is hard, it takes even more.

Compare this wiki article, with it's scholarpedia counterpart. (Just pressed "random" on scholarpedia and this came out.)
Wikipedia articles tend to serve as general (conceptual) overviews of whatever topic, plus some useful links to follow. -- Scholarpedia reads more like a textbook. Some of these articles are really high-level and extensive, and I don't think that's what wikipedia is about.
At least for me, wikipedia is more of a quick reference guide, not a place to actually study a topic.
Another thing is whenever you download ANYTHING, not just pirated media, you should scan it first with an antivirus that you trust before you open or execute it. It's a good habit to put into practice so that you don't accidentally end up having to reformat your whole computer because you didn't bother. This includes stuff from Google, Microsoft, Mozilla, etc.
Also, http://www.virustotal.com/ is a very handy website for exactly this sort of thing.
I'm not sure if there is a specific app for that, but the USPS Mobile app (android) allows you to access informed delivery. You can also set it up so that you get updates when a package is out for delivery and a notification for whenever it is delivered. Love this service.
Sleep for Android does this for Android (duh). Aside from sensing using the accelerometer/gyroscope it can also use ultrasound sensing with the phone placed next to the bed.
It has a ton of other additional features such as logging and showing charts over your sleep history, playing lullabies, helping induce lucid dreaming and even using Wi-Fi connected lights as a sunrise simulator instead of using an alarm.
A lot of my negotiation knowledge comes from working with really, really smart people. But I've read a couple books that have helped me along the way.

You can create a .zip file with a password using tools such as 7-zip. Just be sure to use a long password so it takes longer to crack it (maybe 12 or more characters, and not a dictionary word or common password such as numbers used as letters).
The one I use at work is KatMouse, I tried WizMouse a while back and for some reason didn't like it as well, so I switched back.
Being a Linux user at home means I find Windows almost unbearable without little fixes like this. It should really be built-in.
If it's an important service to you, pay for it. I don't know if Private Internet Access is the best, or even good (EDIT: compared to the field), but I've been paying $3 a month for it for a few years. I need a VPN, they seem to be good, and $3 each month is absolutely reasonable.
I appreciate you putting together a list, and everybody loves free stuff, but sometimes it's worth paying for a service.
EDIT: I did extensive research on VPNs prior to paying for PIA. Everything I found indicated they were one of the best. I have no reason to doubt that (after a few years of using them). My hesitance in crowning them the king of security is only because all of the credible VPN reviews I've read do not vouch 100% security and they are much more knowledgeable than I am.
>"Facebook uses an algorithm called Edgerank, to rank your friends by how much you interact with them, in order to give you better search results and filter your newsfeed. The link appears to reveal one part of Facebook's EdgeRank."
>If you have an Object in the News Feed (say, a status update), whenever another user interacts with that Object they’re creating what Facebook calls an Edge, which includes actions like tags and comments.
>Each Edge has three components important to Facebook’s algorithm:
>* First, there’s an affinity score between the viewing user and the item’s creator — if you send your friend a lot of Facebook messages and check their profile often, then you’ll have a higher affinity score for that user than you would, say, an old acquaintance you haven’t spoken to in years.
>* Second, there’s a weight given to each type of Edge. A comment probably has more importance than a Like, for example.
>* And finally there’s the most obvious factor — time. The older an Edge is, the less important it becomes.
In short, this is a ranking of your "closest" friends based on your social interactions with those people. Factors which influence this rating includes how often/likely you both are to see each other's status updates, comment on each other's updates/walls/photos/etc, communicate with each other via messages, how long you have been friends, and (probably) how many friends you share in common.
This is NOT a list of people who are "stalking" you. The weights applied to these people are derived from your mutual interactions with each other.
It's kind of (super) advanced, but it shows you all the changes you will be making in real-time, so you can play around with all the settings before you make any actual changes. Like I said though, it's super advanced, so it might be worth it to read through a tutorial or two before you start using it.

To tag along with this post, use a VPN it you want all of your internet traffic to be encrypted. The best/top VPN providers that I know of are PIA, NordVPN and Torguard. I personally use torguard, no real reason to pick them over the others it's just the one I picked first. Stay encrypted folks :)

Well, it's slightly more complex than that - it's that no system is guaranteed to always give you a community-wide ranking, no matter what. There's always the chance that voter preferences won't be able to produce a collective preference. If you are interested in this I cannot recommend the book Gaming the Vote highly enough. Really excellent stuff about voting theory and game theory and completely understandable if you don't have ny background in it.

>Coronavirus vs. Flu Deaths
>COVID-19: There have been approximately 1,584,788 deaths reported worldwide. In the U.S, 292,195 people have died of COVID-19 between January 2020 and December 11, 2020.*
>Flu: The World Health Organization estimates that 290,000 to 650,000 people die of flu-related causes every year worldwide.
>The COVID-19 situation is changing rapidly. Since this disease is caused by a new virus, the vast majority of people do not yet have immunity to it, and a vaccine may be many months away. Doctors and scientists are working to estimate the mortality rate of COVID-19, but at present, it is thought to be substantially higher (possibly 10 times or more) than that of most strains of the flu.

Make sure to use some kind of password management system, people often don't like to use good passwords as they are often hard to remember after using them, instead offload that job to a password manager like keepass or LastPass, this is a lifesaver, then just make sure to remember the master password for everything and don't forget to backup your password database if you use an offline password manager. Also never, ever reuse passwords, this is a huge weakness that hackers love to exploit, its why when websites get hacked and their password databases are stolen its a big deal as hackers try to use the same passwords on other sites and it can work quite well.
Also when you hear about breaches its hard to know if you are in trouble, that's why sites like https://haveibeenpwned.com/ exist, you can enter your email address and it will show which hacked sites have that address, if you see any on the list and you have not changed your password in a while for the site or you tend to reuse passwords, change the password for the site.
Maybe I can also Recommend Tubemate Works like youtube but you get to download the video
In a variety of different resolutions
You can convert straight to MP3 or whathaveyou
It has a recommended Video to MP3 Converter for if you want to download at a higher quality and convert to a better sounding MP3 or whatever
You can queue up as many Videos to Download as you want and it'll download 2 at a time
It'll download to whereever you want, including on SD card for people with locked main storage
It has the option to delete your download history with or without the Videos saved on your phone
You can watch videos through it (Looks just like youtube)
If you prefer normal youtube it'll give you the option to Download the video when you hit the "Share" in the normal youtube app, All you gotta do is choose the Tubemate Icon and it''ll open the app, go to the video, prepare it for downloading and then you just is choose a resolution

>Google was once satisfied to have its satellite products, like Maps, drive goodwill among startups and create new exposure to their users. But now we’ve heard Google’s new plan is to make these products self-sufficient. It’s begun charging high-volume users of its Maps APIs.

>The Google Maps API used to be free, as it was trying to gain popularity and displace MapQuest and Yahoo. At the beginning of March it began charging anyone pulling over 25,000 page loads a day $4, $8, or $10 per additional 1,000 loads, and also now offers Premier Tier.

Gonna latch myself onto the top comment to post something that I think really helped me out.
I don't know if this link to Google Play Store will work, but it's to an app called Quit Smoking by Fewlaps (I'm unaffiliated).
So you install it and it'll ask you for a few details about your habit, like cost of your cigs and how many you smoke a day. Then it keeps track of this info which you can display as a widget on your phone. Every so often I'll check it to see how I've progressed, how many days, and how many cigs I haven't smoked.
Come Wednesday I'll be 3 years without a smoke and I really think that this little widget helped. When I started quitting, seeing how many cigarettes I hadn't smoked was a much more inspiring number than how many days I hadn't (10 days vs 200 cigs).
Here's a link to their website that I found. Good luck people. It's not as hard as you think it is. First few days are the worst but after that you start to get amped.

Yeah, I've used PIA in the past, don't have anything bad to say about them, maybe it's just not the best option for streaming. I feel like for Netflix, something like NordVPN, Cyberghost or Vypr would be better.
You are misunderstanding the meaning of 'descriptive grammar'. it has nothing at all to do with how descriptive the language is, it's about describing how language is. A Prescriptive grammar(ian) attempts to forbid the usage of certain constructions. Descriptive grammar does not forbid anyone from using anything, it merely describes how language is used to communicate.
Steven Pinker has some excellent common-sense writing on breakable rules of grammar here.
His take on who/whom is spot on; if I were to seek a job from someone with a name like Tuxington (and a roman numeral after it), I would probably care more right then about who/whom. But it strikes the wrong tone with family, friends, and co-workers.
Prescriptive grammar would have you always sound like a pompous ass, whereas Descriptive grammar would tell you "if you use this construction, you will sound like a pompous ass to most people. However, in certain contexts you will either not sound like a pompous ass, or the listener/reader will approve of you sounding like one."
Anyhow, I repeat my original assertion, that You Should Know the difference between Prescriptive and Descriptive grammars. This doesn't mean that you should blindly ignore all prescriptive rules. It does mean you should be aware of the difference, and conscious of when and why to follow or ignore them. Blindly ignoring an incorrect rule is no better than blindly following it.
Not trying to be super self-promoting, but I see a lot of people talking about other SMS-and-PC apps. I recently did a writeup on some big names and compared them, so if you're interested, give it a look and let me know what you think!
According to Healthcare.gov, FTE is calculated by either employees working more than 30 hours, or the total hours worked by part time employees in a given week divided by 30. So even if employers think that they're skirting the law by having everyone work 29 hours, if the company is large enough, they still aren't in compliance. Now, what level of coverage they have to offer their employees, I'm not sure.
Thanks. I love stuff like this and these guys do a lot of kinesiology and exercise science-which is good! If anyone want more free education, particularly in math and science, check out Khan Academy. Also, hook me up with any other websites you may find that are similar.

>For too much sleep, the risk of death over six years went up 12% for people who slept eight hours, 17% for those who slept nine hours, and 34% for those who slept 10 hours.
>"For 10-hour sleepers, the increased risk of death was about the same as that for moderate obesity," Kripke noted.
Also google hypersomnia.
Here's the abstract:
Epidemiologic studies have consistently shown that sleeping >8 h per night is associated with increased mortality. Indeed, the most recent American Cancer Society data of 1.1 million respondents showed that sleeping longer than 7.5 h was associated with approximately 5% of the total mortality of the sample. The excess mortality was found even after controlling for 32 potentially confounding risk factors. Although epidemiologic data cannot prove that long sleep duration causes mortality, there is sufficient evidence to warrant future testing of the hypothesis that mild sleep restriction would decrease mortality in long sleepers. Sleep restriction might resemble dietary restriction as a potential aid to survival. Sleep restriction has several potential benefits besides possible enhanced survival. Acute sleep restriction can have dramatic antidepressant effects. Also, chronic sleep restriction is perhaps the most effective treatment for primary insomnia. Conversely, spending excessive time in bed can elicit daytime lethargy and exacerbate sleep fragmentation, resulting in a vicious cycle of further time in bed and further sleep fragmentation. Sleep restriction may be most beneficial for older adults, who tend to spend excessive time in bed and have more sleep fragmentation compared with young adults.
While our unit has looked at cases of hyperhydrosis and a bit of behavioral sweating, this project is specifically looking at the independent influence of aerobic fitness and how it may modify our sweating response to a desired heat stress.

We are now attempting to make people fitter through training and see what happens!
Regardless of the actual encryption / volatility of the leaked data, it's still probably a good idea to change your password, very much so if you do something silly like using the same or similar passwords on multiple sites.
KeePass / LastPass.
EDIT: Ebay apparently pulled the same garbage as PayPal where they won't let you copy-paste your passwords from a password database (hilariously enough it works on the login page, but not the change form). This does nothing but encourage bad password practices. Unless you're actively using Ebay for anything, you might want to think about closing your account.
EDIT 2: "Unfortunately, we can't close your account yet, because it has been suspended, restricted, or is otherwise not meeting minimum seller standards." I haven't used the account in more than a year and it has nothing but positive feedback and no restrictions or outstanding fees. Oh boy, this sounds like it's going to be fun.
>>this teenager who admitted he would ass-rape a girl because he learned from porn that girls like anal sex
>The teenager said "He would just do it", by which he most definitely did not mean "to ass-rape her", but to "try it and stop if she doesn't like it".
This is what the article says:
>[Drew] knew that there were certain things — “big things, like sex toys or anal” — that he would not try without asking.
>“I would just do it,” said another boy, in jeans and a sweatshirt. When I asked what he meant, he said anal sex. He assumed that girls like it, because the women in porn do.
Even if the boy did mean "try it and stop if she doesn't like it" like you said, yes that is still rape because he would be penetrating her without getting consent first.
As for the second thing, nowhere in that article did he say he knew definitively that he did not have an STI. Many STIs can be asymptomatic and still be transmissible, so just being in a five-year monogamous relationship (or even being celibate for those 5 years) without any symptoms doesn't necessarily mean someone is free of STIs.
And yet again, he ignored many verbal and non-verbal signs that she was not into what he was doing (he literally said so himself in the article). Lack of a no =/= yes. Did you even read the post before commenting?
Another great site is vizzed. You have to install their plugin for most games, and it's Windows only, but other than that, it's got pretty much any game you can think of and works really well.
According to the following article 70% of freshmen are using macs. Article from August 2010.

Please forgive sloppy and possibly sarcastic post- waiting in line at the grocery.
They're saying YOU shouldn't share the information THEY GIVE YOU with any other people unless you're sure you can trust them. They're not warning you that they themselves will "use it against your interest".
Anything they do with your information is spelled out in their Privacy Statement. Specifically, Section 4, "How We Use and Share Information", Part D, "Information We Share with Third Parties".
Pretty much all apps that do anything with images remove gps data at this point... except for MMS/iMessage.
My company uses this data, though:
Without getting into too many specifics, my company has workers working in customer's houses. We want pics before, during, and after the work.
So we issued iPhones to all the workers and installed Dropbox and enabled location services. Did you know you can use iPhone restriction controls to lock location services On? You do now.
Anyway, so the guys take photos and upload to dropbox. They're supposed to put them in folders with the job number, but, well to put it the way the operations manager puts it "Some of these guys are dumb. They do good work, but you ask them to fuck with technology, pinche cabron."
Anyway, I got a list of the jobs with the start and end date, and the gps location for the job.
Put together a quick little tool in vb.net (which took a number of months and it's still not done yet) which correlates the jobs and photos and let's you dump them into folders based on when and where the photo was taken.
A more complete app (but significantly slower for huge numbers of photos like what I deal with [in excess of 3000 at a time]) for looking at and editing Exif data including GPS data is GeoSetter. While development is active according to the bugtracker, the last version release was in 2011.
The entire drive has to be wiped. That means the software has to write through the caching scheme directly into the drive sectors, sector-by-sector. Writing software that does this correctly is not altogether obvious or easy. The only people who are qualified to write software like this are people who know how to write device drivers for hard drives. (All the "ofstream" library functions in C++ cannot be used.) Drive utilities from Western Digital that operate on Western Digital hard drives probably could do this after booting from a DVD.
CCleaner seems to know how to overwrite the MFT. But how it is doing that exactly is not transparent. Mark Russinovich wrote a utility that seems trustable, and which circumvents the above pitfalls. You can use this to securely wipe specific files without going full-nuclear on the entire drive.
Creating a secure password that you don't remember is orders of magnitude easier if you do it with a password manager.
I prefer the one that I linked because it functions entirely offline, but it's more than possible to find other alternatives that function over a cloud instead.
Password managers such as the one I linked can also generate passwords for any account you have per your specifications on complexity. So if you want a phrase of 18 random words, it'll do that. If you want a string of gibberish that's 32 characters long, it'll do that.
Having a password manager only requires you to know the master password to even use it at all. But if ever there's a password leak and you find that your existing accounts are compromised, fixing that is as simple as opening a manager, hitting "generate" on whatever account got hit, and updating the new password entry both in your manager and on whatever account was exposed.
All password lists made in generators like the one I listed are heavily encrypted, so even if someone straight up stole your password files, they'd never be able to actually see anything.
At this point, no one should ever bother trying to remember passwords they use for anything. The reasoning behind that is that you'll be more likely to repeat said password across various accounts, thereby increasing your risk of exposure during data breaches.
tl;dr: Trying to remember your passwords is pointless and only increases your chances of extending the damage to yourself if you're hacked. Just use a password manager like KeepassXC and never worry again.
Private Internet Access is considered the gold standard. They do NOT keep any records of anything you do.
This has been "tested" in court, since courts have made official demands to "give us any records you have of browsing done by John over here, using your service" and the company said it was literally impossible.
I went over it with a fine-toothed comb, and I'm good. I can't spam-post the links publicly all over the internet, but converting non-affiliate links for a user is not disallowed.

I think that's part of the erroneous perception; only 1-2% of athletes make a lot of money. Most are struggling financially. If you care, read about how US Olympian, National Champion, and "Strongest Woman in America" Is Living In Poverty
Seeing a lot of people post about being denied insurance on here. YSAK that open enrollment for individual insurance plans is currently CLOSED. If you need health insurance and want to take advantage of the generous tax credits now offered to help you purchase it, you may qualify for a special enrollment period or for Medicaid/CHIP. To see if you do, you need to go to https://www.healthcare.gov/coverage-outside-open-enrollment/
Just as with employer insurance and Medicare, you need to be mindful of open enrollment seasons when signing up (or choosing not to sign up) for individual insurance.

I used CCCP before but it seems the project was dropped. I started using K-Lite over the last months but I still didn't stumbled upon any malware yet.
While VLC opens all the videos, I really like Media Player Classic. It downloads subtitles very easily, the interface is clean and easy to use, you press space to pause, lightweight as fuck… It's hard to use something else.
I really don't know how thorough it is, but I trust it. It came recommended to me by a friend who does Windows development, and whenever I look at settings or control panel options relating to privacy, a lot of things are disabled.
It doesn't seem to uninstall Cortana (it looks like the only way to do that right now is to rename some system folder), and uninstalling the software takes a few tries sometimes, so I'm open to the idea of it missing things.
What a strange statement. Why would I make that up? Last time I looked it was 48% but it's up to 55% right now. Or are you one of those 'evidence doesn't matter' people.

Yes, and they also read all of your email and sell the data.
YSK that there exists quite a few alternatives to Microsoft Office that function as more or less drop in replacements for Microsoft Office as long as you don't use features designed for power users (e.g. scripting)
Also if you study any STEM field make sure to learn LaTeX as soon as possible, as you will have to (or want to) write your papers with it.
Being open source means that anybody can fix it, update it, upgrade it or contribute to it in any way imaginable.
And it assures you that there is no malfeasant code in it because there is a lot of people checking every contribution made.
