VLC Media Player

I wanted to talk about VLC Media Player today, have you ever been looking for that program that plays all your media? something that will play your music files (like mp3, m4a, wma, etc.) your dvd's, your music videos, your home video, whatever it is VLC will do it.

I found VLC looking for a good free dvd player, and was coming up short utill i found VLC.

If you have a media collection you might want to give this a try!

No Script is good Script

I have been wanting to talk about this for a while.

For those of you who are big into security, say hello to noscript!

NoScript is a plugin that installs into firefox. (FireFox is a web browser)

NoScript Blocks all script unless you ok it. (A few sites already added, such as google.)

This make firefox with noscript very secure, no website will be able to activate any script from active x to javascript and all ways inbeetween unless you give the go ahead.

I use it to allow the webpage i want to run their scripts, but not the advertisement sites that accompany some of them.

Besides a defensive tool, it kind of teaches you, you'll be amazed at just how many places you are actually connecting to whe you go to a webpage.

You can download FireFox here:

And then download Noscript here:

One last thing, if you notice parts of a webpage arent loading properly it's probably because that website is blocked. After noscript is intalled, on the bottom right of firefox's windows will be a S with or without a slash through it, click on it, and "allow" that website.
