Firefox Screw up – Fixed Addons after much screwing around

The popular Firefox web browser broke at the beginning of this month because a security certificate didn’t update … for what ever the tech reasons. Three days of watching YouTube with bloody Uber ad’s on, and porn pop-ups on movie download sites have been driving be bonkers. It got so bad I started using Chrome for a few hours before cracking the craps with that, and deciding to get to the bottom of the Firefox matter. (others online were saying addons were starting to work for them again) I have…

TR-069: How to turn off the back-door in Exetel’s free ZTE modem

(you have no choice 18 months after your street is hooked up) Our Exetel ISP send out a free ZTE modern on their 12 month contacts. (while oddly selling NetComm modems for $80+) Turns out the ZTE modem they send out has an enter antime they like ‘service’ back-door called TR-069 (see the above video showing how it’s hacked) which uses port 7547. I did a port scan on the new ZTE … holy gecko poop,…

I hardly watch free to air TV (been a year since I turned it on) but I can imagine it’s just as bad there. Youtube, Courier Mail and everywhere else I go on the internet, I’m getting spammed with ‘Uber Eats’ advertising. If I want something to eat, I’ll hop in my own flipping car, go shopping … and cook my own flipping burgers.

eBay drags heals on Australian import GST avoiding criminals

Last week I spent extra (rare for tight assed me) on postage from a supposed Australian eBay seller – item was a little MD81 wi-fi camera Same thing shipped from China by Chinese sellers is cheaper even with the Australian GST import tax. I needed the camera fast. Item location? Supposedly Botany NSW .. 1000 km trip in 4 or 5 working days max, no sweat. With tied eyes scanning advert after advert for an hour, I settled on one with the Australian Flag on it. OK I though, then…

I’m rolling in the money this week, and it’s only Tuesday

Usually I make about 16 cents for the whole week (inflation on the old rusting mower metal in the backyard) … but the past Sunday (3 days ago) I accidental clicked on one of the Google adverts on this site. Checked today, and 55 cents for one click is showing at the Google cashboard. Took ages to get my Adsense account approved (Seinfeld sites about nothing usually don’t) so over to the Google forums I went to admit my sin and seek forgiveness. A friendly Googler assured me that my…
