Wicked Lightning


Sitting on the porch the evening of June 30th 2018 we viewed a strange and beautiful sight. Lightning without a BANG! So we began to video this event. Then we explored for more facts on lightning. We hope you enjoy this video as much as we did that evening and the information.

Lightning Types

Lightning strikes the ground, the air, or inside clouds. There are roughly 5 to 10 times as many cloud flashes as there are cloud-to-ground flashes.

There are two types of ground flashes: natural (those that occur because of normal electrification in the environment), and artificially initiated or triggered. Artificially initiated lightning includes strikes to very tall structures, airplanes, rockets and towers on mountains. Triggered lightning goes from ground to cloud, while “natural” lightning is cloud to ground.

In cloud-to-ground lightning (CG), a channel of negative charge, called a stepped leader, will zigzag downward in roughly 50-yard segments in a forked pattern. This stepped leader is invisible to the human eye, and shoots to the ground in less time than it takes to blink. As it nears the ground, the negatively charged stepped leader is attracted to a channel of positive charge reaching up, a streamer, normally through something tall, such as a tree, house, or telephone pole. When the oppositely-charged leader and streamer connect, a powerful electrical current begins flowing. A return stroke of bright luminosity travels about 60,000 miles per second back towards the cloud. A flash consists of one or perhaps as many as 20 return strokes. We see lightning flicker when the process rapidly repeats itself several times along the same path. The actual diameter of a lightning channel is one-to two inches.

A typical cloud-to-ground flash is a negative stepped leader that travels downward through the cloud, followed by an upward traveling return stroke. The net effect of this flash is to lower negative charge from the cloud to the ground. Less common, a downward traveling positive leader followed by an upward return stroke will lower positive charge to earth.


Cloud flashes sometimes have visible channels that extend out into the air around the storm (cloud-to-air or CA), but do not strike the ground. The terms sheet lightning or intra-cloud lightning (IC) refers to lightning embedded within a cloud that lights up as a sheet of luminosity during the flash. A related term, heat lightning, is lightning or lightning-induced illumination that is too far away for thunder to be heard. Lightning can also travel from cloud-to-cloud (CC). Spider lightning refers to long, horizontally traveling flashes often seen on the underside of stratiform clouds.

Lightning Mapping Arrays provide three-dimensional mapping of lightning channel segments over the array. Up to thousands of points can be mapped for an individual lightning flash to reveal its location and the development of its structure. Research LMAs exist in Oklahoma, the Texas Panhandle, northern Alabama, Washington D.C., and Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Large thunderstorms are capable of producing other kinds of electrical phenomena called transient luminous events (TLEs) that occur high in the atmosphere. They are rarely observed visually and not well understood.

The most common TLEs include red sprites, blue jets, and elves.

Red Sprites can appear directly above an active thunderstorm as a large but weak flash. They usually happen at the same time as powerful positive CG lightning strokes. They can extend up to 60 miles from the cloud top. Sprites are mostly red and usually last no more than a few seconds, and their shapes are described as resembling jellyfish, carrots, or columns. Because sprites are not very bright, they can only be seen at night. They are rarely seen with the human eye, so they are most often imaged with highly sensitive cameras.

Blue jets emerge from the top of the thundercloud, but are not directly associated with cloud-to-ground lightning. They extend up in narrow cones fanning out and disappearing at heights of 25-35 miles. Blue jets last a fraction of a second and have been witnessed by pilots.

Elves are rapidly expanding disk-shaped regions of glowing that can be up to 300 miles across. They last less than a thousandth of a second, and occur above areas of active cloud to ground lightning. Scientists believe elves result when an energetic electromagnetic pulse extends up into the ionosphere. Elves were discovered in 1992 by a low-light video camera on the Space Shuttle.

Stop Data-Mining Part 1:


Hey All as Promised Here’s More on Win10 Data-Mining

There’s been a lot of shit splatter over W10’s privacy . Sooooo, here’s a few methods to have a relatively more private, safe experience, and to slow the data mining that occurs in Win10. The trade off is disabling some of W10’s so called features.
All settings and tweaks in this article can be easily Undone if you decide to later on.
(beats me why anyone would though)

You may be thinking Huh! how bad can I be being mined?
Well How about we take a peek and see ok? Let’s Open up the Command Prompt by launching CMD as an administrator, and then enter the following:

netstat /a 5

This will run all show all connections to your PC and refresh the list every 5 seconds. You can sit and watch this WITHOUT touching the keyboard for a few minutes and suddenly MORE connections will become active magically LOL. Better yet even more magic occurs if you use your mic or search your PC! A much better way to check this out is to, Open up the Command Prompt by launching CMD as an administrator, and then enter the following:

netstat /a 180>"%SystemDrive%\Users\%username%\Desktop\Results.txt"

This is the same command with some tweaks! It refreshes every 3 minutes instead of 5 seconds and also saves the data to a text file named Results on your desktop. Yes, much easier to review this way. So run this command go have a coffee come back. Ok welcome back. Now Close the Command Prompt window. Next find the Results file sitting on your desktop open and review it.
WOW Huh?
I’ll bet your feeling a bit?Seeing Stars
After seeing that maybe you wish to proceed or just want to read this article. Then let’s get busy.

Basic Fixes

Before / During Win10 Installation
Do not use Express Settings! Select Customize, and make sure EVERYTHING is turned off.
I strongly recommended that you use a Local Account not a Microsoft account.

After Installation
Well this is probally most of you huh? If you are trying to be invisible you’re on the wrong OS period! That said we can make it a PITA to get your info. (Oh PITA = Pain In The Ass). Ok here’s the basics.

Settings > Privacy
Disable everything under EVERY TAB and list item, unless there are some things you really need i do not know what or why, but it is your PC and info. Be sure to be very thorough checking every setting and every link making sure you scroll completely down each page!

Things to Note:

  1. While within the Privacy page, go to Feedback, select Never in the first box, and Basic in the second box. Settings > Update and Security > Advanced Options > Choose how updates are delivered, and turn the first switch off.
  2. Disable Cortana by clicking the Search bar/icon. Leaving this on you may as well not bother with any of this and go on your merry oblivious way. Some information mined by the app includes your contacts, calendar, location, internet history and favorites, speech, inking and typing, and much more. (also any Previously collected data from Cortana will not be deleted.)
  3. Disable web search in Search by going to Settings, and turning off Search online and include web results.
  4. Deleting personalization data from the Microsoft servers, To delete more of the data collected ny Cortana, such as Notebook, Reminders, Places, go to the Bing Settings’ page. Using the account you are using on your computer, click the Clear button for both Clear personal info and Other Cortana Data and Personalized Speech, Inking, and Typing. In both cases, confirm the deletion.
  5. Change the name of your PC by Right click on Start, select System in the menu, then click Rename This PC.

You may have noticed that microsoft is so brazen they name the file Autologger lol.
Telling us all Hey look we are collecting all your data! Rasberry

  1. Let’s Open up the Command Prompt by launching CMD as an administrator, and then enter the following:
    sc delete DiagTrack
    sc delete dmwappushservice
    echo "" > C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Diagnosis\ETLLogs\AutoLogger\AutoLogger-Diagtrack-Listener.etl

  3. Next Open up the Group Policy Editor by launching gpedit.msc as an administrator. Go through:
    Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Data Collection and Preview Builds.
    Double click Telemetry, hit Disabled, then apply.
    NOTE: This supposedly only works in the Enterprise edition. (cough cough)
    We will get to a decent enough workaround a little later in part 2.
  4. A little side note for the know it alls….
    There are 4 levels of telemetry in Win10.

    level 0: Security. (Enterprise, Education, and IoT Core editions, available to these versions)
    The claim is:
    A value of 0 (Security) will send minimal data to Microsoft to keep Windows secure.

    Level 1: Basic.
    Gathers a minimum set of data which is critical for understanding the device and identifying problems.

    Level 2: Enhanced.
    Gathers data about how you use Windows and its apps and helps Microsoft improve the user experience.

    Level 3: Full.
    Gathers all of the above information and any additional data that may be required to identify and to help fix problems.

    So all in all, EVERY version of Win10 uses telemetry and collects data!
    What is collected Microsoft deems appropriate NOT YOU!
    Regardless of your settings or supposedly being disabled through them!

  5. While still in the Group Policy Editor, go through
    Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > OneDrive
    Double click Prevent the usage of OneDrive for file storage, hit Enabled, then apply.
  6. While still in the Group Policy Editor, go through
    Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Defender
    Double click Turn Off Windows Defender, hit Enabled, then apply.
  7. Next Open up the Registry Editor by launching regedit as an administrator.
    Go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\DataCollection
    Select AllowTelemetry
    Change its value to 0, then apply.

To be continued with even more hairy protection methods in Stop Data-Mining Part 2:

Including Batch files (Bat) for you to create hosts redirect and firewall rules to stifle Microsoft more. Without system errors. And UN-Do files of each. With Extra bonus prizes of alternate applications for Win10 built-ins.

OH WAIT!…. A Last Second Add On Fix… Facebook On The News
The media PSA release from Facebook on how to disconnect your apps leaves out the fact that Win10 users are vulnerable.
Is this by accident or deliberate who knows? As usual they feed you a pile of – Crap
Some of you may want to disconnect from The Latest Facebook screw up.
Unlike Facebook as a whole even!
So here is a quick add on to Manage the linked accounts:
On the top right corner of your Microsoft profile page, you can see the social networking accounts linked to your Microsoft account, under Manage your accounts. Select Facebook or any other connection you want gone, bah-bye, adios then Click on
Remove this connection completely to remove the account from Microsoft.

That said I have used my allotted Bytes so I am outta here.

More On Data-Mining


Definition of data mining
: the practice of searching through large amounts of computerized data to find useful patterns or trends

Windows 10® here on referred to as Win10 is a registered Trade Mark of Microsoft Corporation™.

Basic Bullshit About Privacy And Information

Fucking GeniousI understand all the concerns about privacy and they’re valid for sure. But here is why Win10 is pretty high on the list of problems when its comes to privacy. Take a look at the NSA hacking treachery for example, or all the hacking being done to places like Kohl’s, Lowes, the IRS and many more. Recently personal information was stolen in a hack of a affiliate of Blue Cross / Blue Shield, also Home Depot accounts where compromised by hackers. Don’t get me wrong, shit loads of security breeches took place long before Win10. If anybody thinks that by using Win10 and using the privacy and security settings your privacy is safe, think again, Microsoft is the biggest culprit in data mining, besides others out there, like Russia, North Korea, China maybe even here in the USA. These days it seems the only way to truly protect your privacy/information is to live in a cave with no pc or other devices.

The Evil Empires Facts (Win10)

So lets get busy and see what Win10 is sucking out of your PC on a hourly (yes hourly) basis. Win10 Sends Your Data Over 6000 Times Every Day Even After Turning On/Off All Privacy Settings. Some think that disabling all of the privacy compromising and telemetry features on Win10 will stop Microsoft from tracking your activities.

But alas the fact is even with all telemetry features disabled, Win10 is phoning home more than you can imagine. Ever since the launch of Microsoft’s Win10, its suspected of spying on its users. So as promised I am focusing on Win10 privacy issues, including its controversial data mining features and privacy invasion features. Some thought the only solution to sorta patch these issues is to disable all the telemetry features or use an automated tool to do so.

Well what a bummer, all these efforts are wasted because Microsoft still tracks you, even after you tighten your Win10 privacy to the extreme (using their settings), many claims and analysis are splattered on the hell yeah they do and oh no lookie they don’t.

Traffic Analysis Reveals Extent of Win10 Spying

Curious to know the extent of Win10 spying, I set Linux on my laptop with a Windows 10 Pro® virtual machine as well as a Cisco router and other monitoring gadgets (Lol No not telling.) to monitor traffic. I disabled every single tracking and telemetry feature available. I left everything running for about 6 hrs to monitor attempted connections.

Get a load of this shit: Load Of Shit

Six hours later, I found the idle Win10 tried over 6000+ worth of connections to 90+ IP’s, of which 4000+ of these attempts were made to 50+ IP’s belonging to Microsoft over and over. Then leaving it run for 36 hours, Win10 expanded the connections list to 129 non-private IP’s. (which hackers can intercept this data) Adding in 3rd party software, same setup just added in DisableWinTracking tool. This did reduce it some to 2758 connections to 30 different IP’s. The interesting fact here is: This analysis was conducted on Windows 10 Pro® that has a higher level of user control, way more than Windows 10 Home Edition® used by the vast majority.

The Greatest Cost to Owning Win10

Based on this, to say that Win10 is sending your personal data to Microsoft’s servers would be sort of inaccurate. But, thousands of connection attempts in 6 hours just to check for updates or adjust the time ( according to Microsoft ), sounds more like Bullshit.

Microsoft says this about Win10 Spying concerns:Kiss It

We collect a limited amount of information to help us provide a secure and reliable experience. This includes data like an anonymous device ID, device type, and application crash data which Microsoft and our developer partners use to continuously improve application reliability. This doesn’t include any of your content or files, and we take several steps to avoid collecting any information that directly identifies you, such as your name, email address or account ID.

While this research doesn’t provide the details of what Win10 is sending to the company even after disabling the telemetry features, you have to keep this in mind that Nothing comes for FREE. “Free” is just a relative term. So in reality maybe you are paying the greatest cost for owning Win10.

Here is a small live sample of data mining:

By checking the box below AIM will scan you for the easiest to obtain information on your computer. Tick I agree and the view data button will become active for you to press. It will open a new window with your Info. We DO NOT Save Your Info. This is for educational and your purposes Only!
I agree. Enable the button.


Now Here Is the real deal of what happens!

All text typed on the keyboard is stored in temporary files, and sent (once per 30 mins approx.) to:

Telemetry is sent once per 5 minutes(Approx.), to:

Searching for a movie, or song title starts a telemetry process that lists all your media files and sends it to:

When the webcam is first turned on, ~38mb of data gets transmitted immediately to:

Everything said into a microphone is transmitted immediately to:

Am I Scaring You? Well Fuck Yeah, You Should Be Scared!

If all of this wasn’t bad enough, this behavior still occurs even if Cortana is fully disabled or uninstalled. The screwed up purpose of this function is to build up a massive voice database, then tie those voices to identities, and eventually be able to identify anyone simply by picking up their voice, whether it be a microphone in public or a wiretap on skype etc.(I know like holy shit batman!)

Even more screwed up, if Cortana is enabled, the voice is first transcribed to text, yes i said text, then sent to:

Now some of you are thinking… Well show me how to block all of these servers with the HOSTS file like you taught us in the parental controls post Mongo, it turns out this won’t work (well fuck me , right) Guess what? Microsoft has taken the care to hardcode certain IPs, meaning that there is no DNS lookup and no HOSTS consultation. But, if the above servers are blocked via HOSTS, Windows will pretend to be crippled by continuously throwing errors, while still maintaining the data collection in the background.(hard ass data mining huh) Other than an increase in errors, HOSTS blocking did not effect the volume, frequency, or rate of data being stored.

Ok What Needs To Be done? Smash It

But seriously that is up to you, but I will show you how to best secure your PC up from Microsoft among others in a later post.

Ok Be Calm, Now go sit, scratch your head and have a drink!

Political Correct Chart

Political Correct

What is with all this politically correct crap?

Why do people all feel the need to be politically correct and hide there true feelings on things just to conform and be politically correct? Like when someone dies people always have nice things to say about them, even if this person was the biggest asshole and took advantage of people they will say he had a heart of gold, not a bad bone in his body UGH a prominent movie star, he makes anti-semitic remarks his publicist issues a national apology and then everything is ok because he apologized. Well he still has that hate and feeling towards the Jewish race and I’m sure he still feels the same way to this day. Isn’t all this crap turning society into a bunch or lying, two faced, back stabbers? I’m sure everyone hates other people for a reason be it Religion, Race, Height, wears glasses etc. But most, when asked an opinion questions what the politically correct thing would be. Well this article is not written by most!

Politically Correct

Someone is politically correct, when they are extremely careful not to offend or upset any group of people in society who have a disadvantage, or who have been treated differently because of their sex, race, or disability.

Politically Correct – American Version

(Warped, distorted)
Conforming or adhering to what is regarded as liberal opinion (far left) on matters of sexuality, race, etc. usually used disparagingly to connote dogmatism, massively excessive sensitivity to minority causes, etc. any variance you will be deemed bigot, racist, sexist etc.

Those who are most sensitive about politically incorrect terminology are not the average black ghetto-dweller, Asian immigrant, abused woman or disabled person! They are a minority of activists, many of whom do not even belong to any oppressed group but come from privileged strata of society. Bored Social Flowers looking for any cause to BITCH about so their voice is heard, But FUCK YOU if you have any opinion other than theirs. So agree or be deemed racist, bigot, fascist, sexist, uncaring, or vermin and the like. If we let these socialist assholes keep this up, stifling our thoughts and stomping out our freedom of speech. Guess what people? Welcome To The 3Rd Reich. Yes look back in history of the beginnings of PC Nazi Germany.

Political Correctness

Derived from an essentially well-intentioned Code of Conduct, became an instrument of moralistic terror in Nazi Germany. The self-appointed “politically correct” think of themselves as the sole possessors of the truth, and refuse anyone else the right to differ. As [German writer] Martin Walser has pointed out, this applies particularly to the best-known German taboos: Germany’s National Socialist history, women and foreigners. When one attempts to deal with any of these themes, even in the most open-minded way, one is beaten down unmercifully with the fascism club, a term coined by political scientist Helmut Knütter. Whenever, by means of this deadly method of argument, someone is successfully labeled a racist, fascist or sexist, he is degraded to the status of a leper, with no further opportunity to present his view.
Claus Nordbruch

Here it is the A.I.M. 2018 Political Correct Chart!

Political Correctness is a liberal way to handcuff our freedom of speech. They sit and bitch about the Republicans taking away our rights and while I don’t want my rights taken away, at least they have the balls to do it out in the open. Soon short people will have these fucktards start calling them vertically challenged. Basically now it is totally relabeling the obvious; so some whine ass’s feelings wont be hurt. Does anyone else realize this crap? Grow a spine or maybe have your skin thickened. I say people need to grow some balls, instead of having them removed because they identify as a twat!

The Dems helped make my point! AtThe State of the Union address; the Leftist spoilt brat asshole dems, not getting their vote influx way (Dreamers). Really? WTF? President Trump was honoring the fallen, hero’s among other great Americans. So this is the way your (I never voted for any of these fools) elected officials behave and treat fellow Americans? I guess if it was about Illegal aliens not breaking other laws besides immigration laws which obviously do not matter to them, they would stand and applaud! Assholes that they all are! Sitting on their hands like high school children and pouting, led by ferret face(whoops not PC was that? See Chart!) Pelosi. The ferret is the real side of her TWO faced bullshit. Think about it. Keep in mind that some of you out there voted for these adolescent, whine bags, tantrum throwing, lying assholes. So maybe you should fix this problem and NOT VOTE for these types again. Freedom of speech includes voicing your opinion about something or someone and FUCK who is offended! (again see chart)

Now we will all see the Memo. Holy shit what is hidden in that? one wonders. I’m sure the FBI and DOJ will need a massive tub of vaseline for all the asses that surely will be reamed in the near future. I will have much more to voice and facts to point out as they stumble to the truth. One final thought for this article. What do you think would happen if polygraphs became evidence? {Angel: holy shite, if polygraphs became admissible evidence for the lying Pollies… i think the earth would tilt off its kilter, shite, maybe the electric grids would collapse!!!”} LMFAO

Getting Rid Of Ads!


Sick of Ads on everything!

How do they find me?
How do they know what i was shopping for?
I will try to answer some of these questions here.

How Does It Work?

NAI (Network Advertising Initiative) companies help advertisers show relevant ads — matching these ads with broad interest categories or groups like male clothing shoppers 25-34 or car buyers in Illinois. NAI members distinguish between visitors to a site and users of an app, assigning them to broad interest category groups using information such as the types of websites visited or the demographics of people who use a certain app. For NAI members, IBA/CAA is not about you as an identifiable individual. Instead, NAI member companies make educated guesses about the preferences and interests of consumers like you.

How do I get placed in interest categories and groups?

The basic way you are placed into an interest category or group on a browser is based on your visits to websites. Let’s say an NAI member company partnered with a clothing retail website that you visit. That NAI member would assign an ID to your browser usually by storing a unique ID number in a text file or cookie on your browser. This is then matched to a “clothing shopper” category by pairing that ID number with interest categories/groups in an online database.
So your
Unique ID Number: 871749823
has the additional pairing of
Matched Categories Male, Age 25-34, clothing

Other information can be used to match you into a group, as well. For example, if you have previously purchased blue jeans and shirts from a website. That website would tell the NAI company to also match:
jean buyer and shirt buyer to your assigned ID.

On mobile apps, the process is similar but it uses a different set of technologies.
The mobile operating system you use, like Android or iOS, is likely to provide an identifier specifically for advertisers to use. This Mobile Advertising Identifier functions similarly to a cookie. It enables advertisers to identify your behavior across apps, without needing to use a more permanent phone or tablet identifier. Most of these identifiers include privacy options that allow users to reset the assigned identifier or to opt-out of Cross-App Advertising. To do Cross-App Advertising, the NAI member may work with an app so that it can send them information relevant to your preferences. For example, if you open an app to look for highly rated local pizza parlors, that app may tell the NAI member that a user with your device identifier may be interested in Pizza, and that the user is in Bumf#ck Iowa. This information may be used to show ads for more local pizza joints.

Mobile Device Identifier 3966239-23ZZ-944A-B3C4-8EYUBVBVFISBBS
Matched Categories Male, Age 25-34, Pizza, Bumf#Ck Iowa

How do they find me?

Do you ever see an ad that’s specific to the city you are in? NAI members may sometimes use your location to make sure they don’t serve ads for Bikinis in Alaska or for Winter Coats in Hawaii. So how do advertisers customize ads based on your city,region etc? They use your IP address, assigned to your computer or device on the Internet. You know what they are; they look like this: Basically its your computers Social security number. assigned to you only and associated with general area that your located. Your ISP Internet service provide is based in your general area for starters. Like if you live in Maine your isp is Comcast and they are located in Biddeford Maine. There thats a general location. That is how NAI members sometimes use this information to show ads customized to your region.

Browsers and mobile devices now also include numerous technologies to identify your location, including GPS (Global Positioning System), WiFi triangulation, and iBeacons. These types of location tend to be more precise (like the phone you lost is at Dunkin Doughnuts on Belch St. Moronsville Wyoming) than a location derived from IP Addresses. NAI members are required to obtain Opt-In Consent from you if they want to store your precise location for ad purposes.

How do they know what i was shopping for?

Is there a pair of sneakers popping up as you surf the Internet?
A collar for your pup you’re seeing advertised on several different websites you’ve been browsing?
WTF? How does this happen?

Well the process is basically the same as getting categorized, as described above. Instead of a broad interest category, it is specific product like Blue Jeans or Lawn Tractor This is called Re-targeting. All of NAI’s crap on Interest-Based Advertising and Cross-App Advertising apply this practice. Let’s say you shop for a Zircon Encrusted Tweezers. The website you shopped tells the NAI member it works with to assign a ID they claim is (pseudonymous IE: fictitious) and associate that ID with that particular brand and style of Zircon Encrusted Tweezers. Now, that retailer will know to advertise the exact Zircon Encrusted Tweezers to you. This process does not require retailers to know anything about you as an individual, only someone using that browser wants Zircon Encrusted Tweezers. Advertisers place bids to reach thousands or millions of people that are interested in Zircon Encrusted Tweezers.

Ok Ok I know your not buying a Zircon Encrusted Tweezers, but you get my point of how this in my opinion ABUSE of cookie and GPS tech. is way out of hand. Most of the CLAIMS made by these companies is plain old BS. They think the rest of the world is full of morons and idiots that believe anything. (hence Obama..different topic) Our site AIM (angelinmaine.com) uses cookies. But we do not sell or track or store your info for monetary gains. When you check remember me or leave a menu setting a certain way. Our site sets a cookie only on your computer or device to remember what you typed in for you. They also delete automatically in 30days even if you don’t delete them.

Now how do i get these Bullsh!t ads out of my life?

Well hate to say it but you won’t, but…. we can sure crush a lot of them. So lets get busy. We will start off with basic ad killing before we get into heavy snooping like Microsoft does (more on that a little later) First Deleting your cookie every time you close your browser is a PITA (pain in the ass). You have to re enter user names over and over. So we go to the source and stop it that way.

Roll up your sleeves, folks. It’s time to start silencing those annoying ads and block the data mining.

How to opt out…

OK, here’s how to take control of some of this stuff. Nope, this is not really simple, although if you take a WTF approach it doesn’t take long to set everything to BE-GONE. If just prepairing to install Windows 10, you can kill off most of this by declining the Express settings then choosing the options yourself, refusing any request to let the OS or apps access your location and turning the Cortana search assistant off. If you already installed, well sh!t, you’ll need to do All of the following. Even if you were super-cautious (paranoid even) during setup, make sure to follow step 3.

  1. Go to Settings – Privacy: then go through all 19 Screens there, turn anything of concern off.
  2. The biggest, most universal settings are under General, while the other screens let you choose which apps can and can’t access your calendar, messages, camera, mic, etc. There may well be stuff you may want to leave on – for instance, If you want Windows Calendar app to access my calendar data (obv), You just don’t want it to sell that data when on because you don’t want to be bombarded with flower,chocolate, and diamond sale ads when it’s the Mrs. birthday. Also your Unique Advertising ID Number (explained above) is under the general tab Let apps use my advertising ID for experience across apps(turning this off will reset your ID)

  3. Depending on you, you may want Cortana’s head ripped off then goto Search settings and turn off everything there.
  4. Now you have just a basic file search now, as you killed off suggestions, Otherwise you would be locked into Bing and part of your processor is forever dedicated to listening for voice commands you will never use.

  5. This is crucial set both options to Off. The Personalized ads wherever I use my Microsoft account which is the root of all this, leaving this on Windows 10 becomes a server for targeted ads.
  6. If you set up Windows 10 with a Microsoft account, i know it nags the ever living sh!t out of you to do so with horsesh!t about synchronized files and settings and a OneDrive cloud account during installation, all that Bullsh!t means your OS is signed into that account at all times (think about that). Windows 10 itself is spy ware, not just the apps or pages that you’re signed into. But notice that after a little time go back to that page, the “Personalized ads in this browser” setting has miraculously turned back on again. This is exploiting sessions deliberately as an excuse to reset.

  7. Remove your Microsoft account and use a local account instead. Go to Settings – Accounts – Your Account
  8. This will slow the harvesting, you’ll lose some features like settings synchronization across your PCs and more nagging from stuff Windows Store and OneDrive tho. No biggy i think.

  9. Now goto the freaking source The NAI – Network Advertising Initiative and use the consumer OPT OUT page (which is widely publicized … yea sorta)
    Click the Manage My Browsers Opt Outs this will start the scan.
    Then Click Opt Out Of All and Submit Your Choices
    For Android Click The Learn About Mobile Devices Opt Out
    For An Android App GoTo DAA – Digital Advertising Alliance
    Another Of The 8 Agencies Involved

  10. http://youradchoices.com/control
  11. Note: The Other Agencies are:

  12. Get a pop-up blocker beyond the selective one built into your browser.

Multiple PCs with Windows 10?

Yep do this sh!t to all of those lovely machines, they do claim your Microsoft account OPT-OUT should be universal (ummm ok BS). None of this means fewer ads, but it stops so much information about you being gathered and sold, the ads you do see won’t be relevant to what algorithms have decided your interests are. Windows now has a full blown ulterior motive as you can gather. More or clearer options, may become available, depending on how many people get pissed off at Microsoft about this.

But wait, there’s more…
Oh F me C’mon.

Yup! Windows has way more data mining going on inside.
This is a but small example of the Microsoft and other data mining connections.
I will discuss this and give you the super paranoid edition ways of stopping it!
More on this sh!t soon!
Have Fun,
