Responding to advertising
Today I responded to a user_talk message regarding advertising at Wikia hosted sites. This prompted me to update this Stylish script which is useful if you browse using Firefox but not if you browse with Internet Explorer.

  • The virtue of the Stylish approach is that each user may customize their personal browser.

The other very useful tool is
If you use a router to share a broadband connection among several users then it is very easy to configure that router to use an opendns IP address for Domain Name System lookups and tra…
