Browsing

Secure/hidden browsing:

  1. Make tunnel out of your location to ‘trusted’ server
    ssh -ND 9051 mytrustedhost
  2. In browser set to manual proxy and configure SOCKS to localhost:9051

Anonymous browsing:
Install TOR

Connection management:
Install FoxyProxy FF extension
You can use TOR, tunnel, no-proxy (make sure you use different port for TOR and ‘tunnel’). You define patterns when to use what, e.g. localhost, intranet no proxy, elsewhere tunnel. It also proxies DNS requests!!!

Tablet

I have Wacom Intuos3 tablet. I enjoy it. Works very good even on Ubuntu Linux. Just …the buttons and touchstrip is a bit unusable :( But, there was a major inssue. Since I started using the tablet I could not control gimp with mouse/touchpad anymore. Solution: disable mouse/touchpad in extended devices preferences dialog.
