I need to get better at this

It’s been a long time since I felt like I knew what I was doing on the Internet, but I think it’s time I started paying better attention to trackers. As the saying goes, if the product is free, you are the product.

The above results are from EFF’s privacy tracker tracker using the Brave browser. Once again, a plug for Brave. Though I regularly use a couple of other browsers and they didn’t do so well.

Also Device Info is kind of interesting. You probably already knew how much a web page can learn about your machine – and it’s pretty benign, for the most part. But, really, how many fonts you have and what they are? Your battery charge, whether it’s plugged in and how long until it’s fully charged? That’s just stoopit.

Have fun.

Oh, it’s getting down to 19° tonight (that’s -7° Euro). That’s the coldest I’ve ever known it to get here, and well into ‘burst pipe’ territory. I’ve got to go cover up my chicken house as best I can (the wooden door is frozen open). Not looking forward to this!

Endeavor to persevere dear lady.
Only three more weeks and it should be March.

Folks keep chooks up here where -35 to -40 F isn’t uncommon. Don’t know how they do it… maybe inside the garage or a chicken shack, I s’pose.

I have a little house for my outdoor kitty. It is heated by a little 9″x12″ plastic plate electric heater designed for baby chickens that has the marvelous name of “Thermo-Peep”. Does a nice job, runs 24-7 all winter, year after year. 25w, weatherproof. K&H makes bigger ones too, but the Peep throws the most heat per square inch.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
