Olav bought 5 coffees.

I've been ended up on your site for tidbits for years, I guess I should buy you some caffeine.

Thanks! 🎉

Setting up a PC from scratch, Edge Deflector is one of the first things I went to install. Searching for the download, I found your retrospective on having created it, and I was quite dismayed. I want to thank you for having creating it, and supporting it all these years, preserving our ability to have the native search function go to the browser of our choice. It may have felt unappreciated, but I thank you every time a query goes through. It really is appreciated, every day. Thank you.

Thank you for your support! It's greatly appreciated. (You can expect a small EdgeDeflector update within the next few days!)

Found your 2018 blog on Lenovo WiFi Security. Very enlightening. It's 2021 and I got the message while on my home network and as far as I can tell there's no one on the network who shouldn't be on it. Absolutely no help from Lenovo saying what the malicious activity is. Very disappointed in the product, especially since I worked for two years at IBM in the security division (very low level administrative position). Thank you for your clear explaination of the product, which doesn't seem to be much of a product.

Thank you for your support! The Wi-Fi Security service makes more sense today than it did in 2018. The Lenovo Vantage app is now trying to sell VPN subscriptions. Telling people their Wi-Fi is insecure scares them into buying (mostly) useless VPN services.
