Google’s uncommon downloads and where to find them.

Slander from Google is fun kids!

Earlier this month we produced a blog article illustrating how we screwed up. It was simple, educational, and it really hits close to the homes of independent blogging and website building on how much goes through a single organization which is Google. More importantly, how many websites that piggy-back onto the giant and just happy accept their data as pure truth instead of questioning its overall legitimacy. From a scarier point of view the bots are doing exactly what they are programmed to do and in turn are becoming scape-goat for corporate greed.

To which if AI is going to take the fall for human corruption. Well! Guess that’s ANOTHER reason why robots should wipe us off of the face of the earth!

The point is we want to show you some classic Google incompetence and how everyone accepts this is as “just another day on the internet” when the more appropriate response should be outrage.

It appears we screwed up.

Yes, it’s true. We can screw up. We’re pros at it!

In this chapter, we are swept away by tornadoes and dropped off somewhere in Jersey. It’s a serious fear for those who live in the great American mid-west. For those who aren’t following our social networks, we made the switch from Apache to NGinx. Why do you ask? Because after doing a lot of research combined with the fact that a lot of my favorite decentralized programs such as Mastodon using the Nginx platform. It seemed reasonably powerful to give it a go. For the most part, the migration was a success! But like all things new you tend to get a little crazy with configuration and sometimes screw up!

To those who were wondering why things were silent for a bit. Well, there you go! Just table-flipping the website once again! Would you like to know more?

YouTube – FTC – Think of the Children – Censorship – Round 3!

YouTube Censorship Round 3 title.

Aww geez! Not another YouTube rant!

It’s a time that as a blogger we address the proverbial elephant in the room. The last few things YouTube has done I’ve remained quiet about. Mostly in respects that I’ve already said my piece about them and have suggested to people to try other outlets. From their de-monetization policy, a word that if you uttered 10 years ago people would scratch their head and ask you “What the hell are you talking about?” To “Adpocalypse” and “AI mass deletion” to now with this whole “COPPA/FTA” ordeal. I feel it’s time to address these issues in an environment to which YouTube nor Google cannot control.

This very blog. I should throw a small disclaimer that these are the opinions of S-Config.com. In such, you should do your own investigative research to form your own opinions on the subject matter. Don’t be a lemming!

DMOZ left and thanked us all for the fish!

DMOZ.org closed title.

The Directory Mozilla Open Source project ( DMOZ ) is now closed!

Standing tall for more than 19 years now the DMOZ has closed its doors to the internet. Source is WHOIS from January 2nd of 1999; To today where the announcement was made on their site March 17th, 2016. Also, there was two years where DMOZ/ODP was known as “Gnuhoo” which totals its 19-year existence. This news was discovered to us thanks to our broken links detection tool . WordPress users such as ourselves have this plugin installed. This hit us personally hard because of what the Open Directory Project stood for. Also, the simple fact that after many years that this very site was listed in the /Society/People/Furry/Personal Pages category of their site.

The greatest enemy of AMP is the company that designed it. – S

The vast universe of WordPress bloggers are installing the AMP plugin as another means of making it easier for people to find their content online. But is AMP itself really serving its purpose? Or is it self-serving as a way of extracting content from individual bloggers? Perhaps there’s something more nefarious behind this simple protocol. Read on if you want to know more.
