Software gives visual representation of who’s following you online

Software gives visual representation of who’s following you online
By Stephen C. WebsterThursday, March 1, 2012 11:08 EDT A new piece of software released this week by browser-maker Mozilla does something unique: it provides a real-time visualization of who is tracking your movements online. The software is called “Collusion,” developed last year by Mozilla programmer Atul Varma, who became inspired to code the program after reading extensively about online privacy matters. It plugs into the Firefox browser and watches as websites and ad networks drop “cookies” into the browser during normal surfing. “Each dot in the graph represents a website,” Alex Fowler, the global privacy lead at Mozilla, explained to Raw Story. While it doesn’t sound all that creepy, just wait until you see your own graph. “Mozilla’s goal is to raise awareness of users about one part of their online experience,” Fowler explained.

The Hacker Manifesto by +++The Mentor+++ Written January 8, 1986 Another one got caught today, it's all over the papers. "Teenager Arrested in Computer Crime Scandal", "Hacker Arrested after Bank Tampering"... Damn kids. But did you, in your three-piece psychology and 1950's technobrain, ever take a look behind the eyes of the hacker? I am a hacker, enter my world... Mine is a world that begins with school... Damn underachiever. I'm in junior high or high school. Damn kid. I made a discovery today. Damn kid. And then it happened... a door opened to a world... rushing through the phone line like heroin through an addict's veins, an electronic pulse is sent out, a refuge from the day-to-day incompetencies is sought... a board is found. Damn kid. You bet your ass we're all alike... we've been spoon-fed baby food at school when we hungered for steak... the bits of meat that you did let slip through were pre-chewed and tasteless. Yes, I am a criminal. I am a hacker, and this is my manifesto.

Getting Started - Google Swiffy Swiffy can be used in two ways: With the Swiffy Extension, you can directly publish to HTML5 from Adobe Flash Professional. On the Swiffy homepage, you can upload your SWF file to convert it to HTML5. Both methods will always use the most recent version of Swiffy. How Swiffy works Swiffy converts a SWF file to an HTML page that contains an efficient representation of the file as a JSON object. The HTML page uses the Swiffy runtime (a JavaScript library) to render the animation using mainly SVG. Supported features and browsers Swiffy supports shapes, embedded fonts, timeline animation, (dynamic) text, movie clips, buttons and scripting using ActionScript 2.0 and ActionScript 3.0. Development tips Test the output in mobile browsers Mobile devices are generally less powerful than the computer you are using to develop your animation, so it is essential to test the output on devices you are targeting. Take care when using filters Use the Swiffy extension to get feedback while developing

Reset Firefox – easily fix most problems This feature is available on Firefox for desktop or laptop computers. If you're having problems with Firefox, refreshing it can help. The refresh feature fixes many issues by restoring Firefox to its default state while saving your essential information like bookmarks, passwords, and open tabs. Note: There's also a Refresh Firefox button in the Firefox Safe Mode window, if you can't start Firefox normally. All of your Firefox settings and personal information are stored in a profile folder. Add-ons which are normally stored inside the Firefox profile folder, such as extensions and themes, will be removed. Firefox will save these items: Bookmarks Browsing and download history Passwords Open windows and tabs Cookies Web form auto-fill information Personal dictionary These items and settings will be removed: Note: Your old Firefox profile will be placed on your desktop in a folder named "Old Firefox Data".

convert SWF files to HTML5 By Marcel Gordon, Product Manager, Swiffy Some Google projects really do start from one person hacking around. Last summer, an engineering intern named Pieter Senster joined the mobile advertising team to explore how we could display Flash animations on devices that don’t support Adobe Flash player. Pieter made such great progress that Google hired him full time and formed a team to work on the project. Swiffy was born! Today we’re making the first version of Swiffy available on Google Labs. Swiffy uses a compact JSON representation of the animation, which is rendered using SVG and a bit of HTML5 and CSS3. Swiffy is a great example of how far the web platform has come.

Forums - View topic - How to display animation in Rainmeter Re: How to display animation in Rainmeter August 31st, 2009, 7:01 am In my experience, TransitionUpdate and BitmapTransitionFrames aren't really necessary if you're just trying to show an animation. If you do decided to use transition frames though, then you will need a little bit of planning ahead. When I first started experimenting, I always left out the trailing transitions after the final frame. Also, keep in mind that what I've just said is mostly from memory, so the details may be off. Install from Binary Distribution ImageMagick® is a software suite to create, edit, compose, or convert bitmap images. It can read and write images in a variety of formats (over 100) including DPX, EXR, GIF, JPEG, JPEG-2000, PDF, PNG, Postscript, SVG, and TIFF. Use ImageMagick to resize, flip, mirror, rotate, distort, shear and transform images, adjust image colors, apply various special effects, or draw text, lines, polygons, ellipses and Bézier curves. The functionality of ImageMagick is typically utilized from the command line or you can use the features from programs written in your favorite language. Choose from these interfaces: G2F (Ada), MagickCore (C), MagickWand (C), ChMagick (Ch), ImageMagickObject (COM+), Magick++ (C++), JMagick (Java), L-Magick (Lisp), Lua, NMagick (Neko/haXe), Magick.NET (.NET), PascalMagick (Pascal), PerlMagick (Perl), MagickWand for PHP (PHP), IMagick (PHP), PythonMagick (Python), RMagick (Ruby), or TclMagick (Tcl/TK). The ImageMagick development process ensures a stable API and ABI.
