Please advert firms & tracking vampires; Listen!

Adblocking And The End Of Big Advertising; really summed up how I've personally felt about advertising.

I found NPR's Morning Edition back in late 1990's. I was fed up with all morning radio jockl the.the hammering ad spots.

I used to mute TV's ad spots. Now, my DVR pause button does it for me.

PowerShell v3 to include SSH

Yeah! Windows will allow an BSD encrypted telnet service! Some ISP will block VPN; so ssh has been great access to command line and moving files around (via scp). I rarely (like cannot ever remember doing except in scripting) using scp or rcp. On Android/Amazon, ghost commander is my favorite tool; for Unix/Windows console my goto was/is FileZilla.  puTTY is the terminal tool. I found FileZilla v2.2.32 works great puTTY virtual connections.

But, I've had sshd running on my Windows Servers (2003, SBS, WHS) for years using freeSSHd. I don't understand what the  finds "However, there are limited implementations customers can deploy in Windows production environments."

Set up a free SSH server on Windows with freeSSHd

Anyway, great the new Microsoft will support OpenSSH, an BSD service!
