    Some of you (read: everyone) will be getting a "Malware Ahead!" warning in Chrome / Firefox and whatever other browsers the cool kids are using these days.

    I just wanted to officially say:

    1. Yes we are aware of it.

    2. It seems to have been triggered by one of the lovely ads from our host provider (as a result, their entire network is affected). The bad ad has allegedly been removed.

    3. Allegedly.

    4. We are trying to get Google to stop with the malware warnings.

    5. Yes, until then, you will have to do the "proceed at your own risk" click-juggle at least three to four fucking times for every fucking page you fucking click on, fuck you already Google fucking Chrome.​

    And Happy New Years!

    You know, for years I haven't needed to but Jesus fuck this is ridiculous. If I "proceed at my own risk" eighteen fucking times, Chrome should get the fucking message already.

    Given it's buggy and is false reporting anyway, malware check disabled. Fuck you Chrome.

    I always disable it because it's just another mean for Google to track all the sites you visit, even on Firefox.

    Opera is my browser of choice. I also browse only in Sandboxie with only Opera allowed to run to isolate my system.

    I found the "proceed at your own risk" part quite relevant actually.
    It should stay :P

    I gotta drive to work drunk tonight. Fortunately, all the cops I know are on the take. My truck stop has an endless supply of doughnuts and other vices with which I have been able to make them look the other way.

    Just fired my fireworks.
    Outside looks like an 18th century battlefield, just like every year.
