Automatic HTTP-to-HTTPS Redirect with Greasemonkey

2007-04-09 Leave a comment

Many websites have the option of using an SSL-encrypted version of their site. Google applications have this option, but HTTPS is not used by default. To use it you would normally have to manually correct the URL, which is very tedious.

To ensure that you are always using the HTTPS version of a site, install the Greasemonkey extension for Firefox and then install the HTTP-to-HTTPS redirector script. The script supports many common sites by default, and allows you to add sites if you like.

Please Help Save Radio Paradise

2007-03-19 Leave a comment

Recent rate changes by the US Copyright Office threaten to put Radio Paradise and other Internet radio stations out of business.  I cannot express how upsetting this is to myself and countless others. With all of the garbage on mainstream radio, Radio Paradise is a beacon of hope.  It is the best radio I have ever heard, and is easily one of my favorite sites on the Internet. But don’t take my word for it.  Head to RP and give it a listen.

The vast majority of music that I purchase comes as a result of hearing it first on Radio Paradise. It is the only site that I use to discover good music. It is not uncommon for me to buy several CDs after a long listen to RP.  Isn’t this good for the music industry and copyright holders? Without RP I will buy less music!

Please help save Radio Paradise. You can find out how to help at RPs home page.

2007-02-18 Leave a comment

Here’s a great post by Business Intelligence Lowdown that lists the worst 10 consumer privacy infringers. I’m very disappointed to see many of the names on the list, although I’m not at all surprised. The lack of ethics and respect for privacy is very disheartening.
