The flashblock plugin is a godsend. Flash doesn't play until you tell it to by clicking the play symbol on the flash item.

Be careful, though. There's "flashblock" by Philip Chee and "Flash Block" by Perez.

Flashblock (one word) by Chee is the good one. I don't think the other one is malicious, and haven't used it.

Get the free SleepyHead software here.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.

I set the flash plugin to "ask to activate". It's a bit inconvenient to see the popup asking to enable flash but I just ignore it. It's amazing how many sites use flash but don't have any flash content. Other than to track you I suppose.



Using FlashAir W-03 SD card in machine. Access through wifi with FlashPAP or Sleep Master utilities.
