Especially now, when I am recuperating...

ON ANOTHER NOTE:
https://www.zdnet.com/article/google-secretly-logs-users-into-chrome-whenever-they-log-into-a-google-site/?ftag=TRE-03-10aaa6b&bhid=24890760153647996239605009627683

 Google has made an important change to the way the Chrome browser works, a move the company did not advertise to its users in any way, and which has serious privacy repercussions.

According to several reports [ 1, 2, 3], starting with Chrome 69, whenever a Chrome user would access a Google-owned site, the browser would take that user's Google identity and log the user into the Chrome in-browser account system --also known as Sync.

This system, Sync, allows users to log in with their Google accounts inside Chrome and optionally upload and synchronize local browser data (history, passwords, bookmarks, and other) to Google's servers.

Sync has been present in Chrome for years, but until now, the system worked independently from the logged-in state of Google accounts. This allowed users to surf the web while logged into a Google account but not upload any Chrome browsing data to Google's servers, data that may be tied to their accounts.

Now, with the revelations of this new auto-login mechanism, a large number of users are angry that this sneaky modification would allow Google to link that person's traffic to a specific browser and device with a higher degree of accuracy.

That criticism proved to be wrong, as Google engineers have clarified on Twitter that this auto-login operation does not start the process of synchronizing local data to Google's servers, which will require a user click.

Furthermore, they also revealed that the reason why this mechanism was added was for privacy reasons in the first place. Chrome engineers said the auto-login mechanism was added in the browser because of shared computers/browsers.

When one or more users would be using the same Chrome browser, data from one or more users would accidentally be sent to another person's Google account.

Yup.. I do use firefox, because chrome does not allow spybot!

well, can't say either way for the other, but uBlock Origin is basically just a less behind-the-scenes-sketchy updated version of AdBlock; I've been using it since I got my new laptop ^^

Very, very long story TBH. 2018 not been the best year for me, dad got cancer (he's doing okay now though, clear for a few months now but on dialysis) which was discovered at the start of the year. Had that to deal with for a few months. I've completely moved course in university too in September.

Probably the biggest personal change is I've been questioning a lot recently. Don't really care how accepting people are here but I've kind of come to the realisation that I'm probably trans. I've been going as Quark online which some people have made an effort of using and others don't really remember which is fine. Quark because physics but also because it's not overtly feminine so I don't need to out myself to people I don't want to (like my brother and parents...). I'm going to try and see someone on this on Monday though for the first time to see what exactly I need to do to sort it all out in my head given I'm not sure about some stuff. I could completely overshare on this stuff but I'll try not to do that. Tongue So yeah......

I can't speak for everyone, but I'm definitely accepting and yeah ^^ You could change your display name here too if you want, I think that should still work ^^ Good luck on Monday too!

Also, nice avatar ^^

Thanks! I was kind of careful about who and when I came out to people but honestly I'm getting a bit more used to it now so I can probably put with people giving me a negative reaction at this stage given I don't dislike myself for being trans as much as I did initially at least (I am super accepting of trans people just I guess less so for myself). I did actually look at changing the name but it doesn't look like I can and tbh I'm not overly bothered, I can't really erase the past and I've just got to embrace that because the person who made the account is still me after all.

Monday will be tough to be honest, for one I don't know if the drop in session still even runs and I'm kind of nervous already about going to it even though the guy who's there has probably seen it all at this stage.

And yeah I was going to pick something else for the avatar but I had nothing really besides it to use on the phone. It's from Forza Horizon 4, I've been tricking people with screenshots from it because some of them look that good that people ask me if it's a real photo and it's pretty funny.

hmmm, I should look into that; the settings were giving me trouble the other day too... is the option there at all, or is it giving an error, or anything else? I could help out there if you wanted, honestly ^^ I get what you mean about being careful, though, that's something that... really takes getting used to, really.

It's very fair and valid to be nervous, and yeah, I totally get that. I wish you luck for sure, though ^^

Oooh, nice! It's pretty neat how realistic the racing games have been getting, and that was an A+ design on the car too ^^

Yeah I just can't change it, the username field isn't editable, I can change emails and all that. Isn't such a big deal here though given there's not a large crowd or anything. I've paid up for my XBL gamertag to be changed and everything though because I cringed every time I saw it, not because I'm trans or anything just it was a terrible name and I'm on a crusade to rebrand. Tongue

Yeah, the car design is quite something. I started back in June basically after pride month the idea that I would design a car that includes the flags that best represent parts of who I am. More so as a response to some communities I'm in on discord not being that accepting of anything like that. The idea started as a terrible job in photoshop using Project Cars 2. It was originally 1 flag on the car but because I'm now at 3 I've found Forza Horizon 4 the best way to do it because I'm like a child using photoshop, my strategies are the equivalent of finger painting. Tongue I've got a few cars/vans with similar designs but the one I'm using in the avatar is the only one with all three flags and it's really the only fully complete one so that it looks like a legitimate race car.

Sorry I can really drone on about stuff like that. Tongue

Ohhh, looked at it more, is there like a "change" option in brackets? I'm sorry if I'm making a big deal out of it, I'm just trying to see if this is something that I can fix in the admin panel or something else. xP I think there should be a way to like, change the name displayed that isn't the username name, but yeah ^^

Oh wow, that is a very cool idea! I'm sorry that those communities aren't that accepting, though =/ It'd be neat to see a full-sized image of it, though, it looks pretty cool ^^

No worries, that's a cool thing imo ^^

^ What I see.

It's cool about the communities. I'm kind of used to some of the people there being like that now given I've been putting up with them for about a year now, don't ask me why because IDK the answer. Some people seem to pretend like I no longer exist on them but hey that's fine they weren't that nice to begin with anyway so no loss. One person left a server entirely in part because I was made a mod which to some extent I find hilarious.

They are kind of interesting because they are "LEGO" communities, kind of like the second generation of places like this. They started popping up after the LMBs closed. I've kind of tried to help them out given I've been around the block already with MLNT and all that but IDK the drama on them is usually pretty similar to the drama of the past.

As for full-sized image of my avatar, I got you covered. Tongue



All the photos I've actually put up to the gallery then are here:

Welll, huh, that's an oddity; lemme look into that, it should be able to be changed; might be something I changed up a while ago to prevent it from being overused back when things were more active here. (after writing that I found the option and fixed it ^^)

Ahhh, I get what you mean, but wow, dang =/ that's a pretty good way to look at it though ^^

Oh dang, wow =O I guess I can see that happening, it just almost feels like there's something about that which invites repeating the old drama. =/ hopefully things can get better, but yeah, I definitely see how that could happen =/

That's very cool! ^^ I like the look of it a lot, and it's neat that that level of customization is possible in Forza! maybe I'm a little too surprised there, but I think the last car customization thingy I've seen was like, Gran Turismo 4, and it had like, just choosing parts to colour a solid colour xP

Ay! Tongue I might as well change it now, thanks. Cheesy

Yeah, the Forza games have a lot of customisation of what the cars look like, it's a bit awkward to get used to it but you can do a lot with it, plus the logos and stuff were actually made by other people and I just used them. As far as I understand they are entirely made by shapes and such though, you can't import images or anything so those people have my respect for putting things like the Flex Tape logo into the game.
