Oracle have updated their Java with a lot of annoying popups.

Oracle probably think that this increase the security of their “swiss cheese executable container” called java.

Adito is no longer developed and at the time it was, Java was “the-way-todo-it”.

Adito from my site is a unsigned applet, the default setup action now is to block it.

The best way to get rid of the problem is to decrease the security settings to “Medium”.

But you can add exceptions for your own site, and still keep “security” high.

Below this method is explained.

Here is the problem when you run Adito without rights to run:

java warning 1

java block 1

java failed 1

To fix this go to the control-panel, then run Java-settings:

java controlpanel

Go to the security-tab and push the “Edit site list”:

java security

Add your site to the security list, this is the same as in your browser addressfield:

java security add site

java security add site localhost

Now when you reload your Adito-agent, you will be presented with this prompt:

java in browser accept agent

If you accept the risk, check it and push run.

(The Adito-agent is compiled by me, unchanged from source.)

The agent should be running like before.

Hardware.no has been a good source for techno-information for years.
Now in the days of commercials Adblock is a must to survive in the jungle of information.
But when sites are doing a semi-paid commercial thingy, I get annoyed:

Adblock = ON

Hardware.no commercial for adblockers

Hardware.no commercial for adblockers

Adblock = OFF

Hardware.no with commercial

Hardware.no with commercial

If you also got annoyed, add this filter to your adblock-exception-rules:

@@||hardware.no/js/adtech_ad.js
@@||hardware.no/js/adtech*.js

If you don’t care about comments on the site, block jQuery all together, add:

http://static.tek.no/js/jquery.min.js?cb=1369321785
or
http://static.tek.no/js/jquery.min.js*

(Source)

Earlier attempts does not work as expected. This will hide the commercial and show content

@@||tek.no$elemhide

That way the commercials and popups are long-gone-silver.

HW.no is active and tries to block attempts for blocking this.
If they are serious they should use sessions and hide articles behind a userportal solution.

If you have other sites that you would like to share tips like this, please let me know in the comment field!

I have bought a DS-47 with 16 GB of RAM and a Intel 335 SSD.
The current BIOS does not detect the SSD-drive at all. Even changed from ACHI to IDE with no luck.
Tried the 335-drive on another computer and it worked there (upgraded firmware at the same time).

The DS47 BIOS installed (DS47D000.100). I’ve requested Shuttle for support, and they probably needs to update the BIOS.
