Servicing computers is way more fun. All those things they say about computer shops stealing your personal files (your pr0n) are pretty truthful. I worked at a local place for a few months and this one guy was obsessed with collecting other people's... "personal files" - even if it wasn't something he was into.

 

It was like some twisted sense of a trophy.

 

Some people have some real gems (and I mean the vomit-inducing kind).

 On a more relative note: I prefer to have my browsers forget everything upon closing. Unless I'm using session manager, which is something I actively decide.

Heh, I actually had something similar thing happen with Safari when I was using a friend's Mac.  I just typed in "www" and a couple of rather, um, interesting sites from her history came up.  People are so careless sometimes.  Lol.

My policy is: If you don't want people knowing you go to a site, DON'T FREAKING BOOKMARK IT. Durrrrrr.

You can do this via Tools|Options and on the Privacy Tab, you'll find 2 frames:  History and Location Bar.

Change the parameter labeled "When using the location bar suggest:  " via the selection presented in the drop down (History and Bookmarks, History, Bookmarks or Nothing)

though it is a point....DA may be safe but if your giving a presentation and "deviant art" pops up well, it's a egg face moment.

What's wrong with DeviantArt? The name that suggests it's art that's deviant? DEVIANT MEANS EVIL AND SICK. SICK AND EVIL THINGS IN YOUR HISTORY.

 

FACIST

/sarcasm

 

Just saying, I think a better example is order that's all.
