Exweeto's IT Scratchpad

Oh goody! Another random site containing tech-geek stuff! Ja, well this site isn't really meant for you... it's for my own benefit, being merely a collection of IT-related odds and ends that I need or have needed in the past and may need again in the future and don't want to forget. A lot of it is linkage - links break when sites go under, so don't blame me if you are using this site and a link doesn't take you where you expect (you could always let me know!) Other parts of the site are documents or just blurb or scripts or whatnot that I have plonked here so that I don't forget it and can (hopefully) find it in the future. You are welcome to use this site, but do so at your own risk! I take no responsibility for a script or method failing on you, especially if you don't deem it prudent to backup your work/site/database first. If you want to contact me do it here... if your intention is to flame me, do it here.

Oh yes, if you are looking for the site that used to be at this URL (Devarim, my Christianesque blog), it has moved in its entirety to (and I have resolved to actually start adding stuff there too!)

There are a bunch of others out there that purport to tell you things like what CMS a site is built on, but I have found that most of them provide very limited information, and often the information provided is just wrong! Here are a few:

Let me know if you have any others to add to the lists.

Opting Out of Targeted Advertising

Author: Exweeto

Some of the ads you receive on Web pages are customized based on predictions about your interests generated from your visits to different Web sites. This type of ad customization is sometimes called "online behavioral" or "interest-based" advertising. Such online advertising helps support the free content, products and services you get online.

The Digital Advertising Alliance's consumer choice page lists participating companies that provide transparency and choice with regards to targeted advertising. Click the Read more link to go to the site and opt out!
