How to Properly Use An Ad Blocker

One of my biggest pet peeves is the return of the popup subscription box. Unlike the old popup/pop-under style Javascript boxes, you cannot easily prevent these from showing up. Usually, they are the incarnation of some desperate content site who will sell your email address to a hundred other soulless spam bots to keep their pathetic sites running. Worse yet, beyond these terrible annoyances that are flooding the web of click bait sites, you often times have numerous trackers, intrusive ads and hidden content that loads without your knowing nor permission. Many Ad Blockers these days just prevent the most dubious sites from phishing you or installing worms into your system. However, their subscription list often times are bought and paid for by the aforementioned groups, so there’s really little protection you can easily get without customizing your blocker. For those of you who actually care about not being tracked and having a cleaner web experience, this article is for you.

Bard’s Tale 3: Quick Tips

Once in a while I get this super urge to go all out nostalgic on the weekends out of sheer boredom. Right now, Diablo 3 really is a bore for me, not going to lie, mostly because of the lack of content and people to play with. So instead, I turned my eye to other games. One of my all time favorites is Bard’s Tale 3. Although 2 probably is the best of the series in terms of its peak, 3 just has a little more going for it in terms of overall polish and the type of grind that I enjoy, which is why I decided to pick it up again, even going as far as using the Apple 2 version.

Game of Thrones: MIA Characters We May See in Season 6

Game of Thrones: Stannis’ Fate

One major potential shocker and something I did not expect to happen this season was the encounter between the Boltons and Stannis’ army. Perhaps, part of my shock was relying on the fact that the books have yet to deal with this encounter and book readers are currently awaiting the outcome. Obviously, the TV series has spoiled the results for book readers, but in truth there’s no practical way one could not infiltrate the other when it comes to ruining some level of the experience. Given that situation, I want to talk about the results of tonight’s encounter with Stannis and the Boltons.

Game of Thrones: Speculations on Jon Snow’s Fate

For book readers, most people are probably not surprised by Jon Snow’s apparent demise at the hands of the his sworn Night’s Watch brothers. If anything the only surprise was how he was conned into believing that his uncle Benjen Stark was still alive, leading him into being trapped. I did a small amount of speculation on his situation in my previous blog post reviewing episode 10 of season 5. However, what are the overall implications moving forward as a result?
