New article: firewalling done right

article-logo

Hello. I've published an article about the Windows buil-in firewall. Many people actually use 3rd party firewalls like ZoneAlarm with alleged benefits such as Intrusion Prevention. Their down-side is that they do heavy work in constantly running background processes. This impacts your computer's performance and often causes conflicts with other security components, such as virus scanners.. This article explains how a Windows 7 (or newer) computer in a home setting (computer(s) connected to DSL/cable router with modem) can achieve a satisfactory level of security by using just the Windows built-in firewall. The advantage is the minimal performance impact, while still being able to maintain control using an extra management tool. Several of these tools are discussed, some in detail. Head over to the article to find out more!

Hi. I've just published two articles that detail how a life free of Google's reign can be achieved. The first article is called "Live without Google". You will first learn about many reasons why you should consider a life without Google. You will most likely use Google services on your workstation (PC/Mac) on the one hand, and on your mobile device (Android phone/tablet, iPhone/iPad) on the other hand. This article explains ways to escape Google's reign on the former while the second article helps you to to find appropriate replacements for the latter. Enjoy!
