    When I plug in to esmb there's a box telling me how many members are on line, how many guests are on line and...

    How many robots are on line...


    How does a robot "read" a thread?

    Who owns and/or directs such robots? (other than, presumably OSA)

    Leland Crusader everything. That is how Search Engines can find stuff.

    The whole of the Internet is recorded....and stored in Server Farms...

    But, I probably should add....that Bots don't understand what they read.

    At least not yet....and hope they never do.

    So, reading is probably a misnomer.....I guess they copy, compare and categorize?

    Quite a few non-robots don't seem to understand what they read either

  5. That's a nice touch. I remember writing a post about contraception in a forum and suddenly getting banner ads from planned parenthood on the site

    For doing internet searches I suggest using DuckDuckGo instead of Google.

    Also, for your email, deselect (turn-off) automatic embedded image display.

    Also, for your email, deselect (turn-off) "stay logged-in" when you log-in to email.
    The default "stay logged-in" saves a cookie (e.g. small info file) on your computer.
    This bit of info saved on your computer is a risk that cyber-criminals might access.
    This is about "internet risk management".

  9. Don't even get me started on google sync. I wish that had a nuke button but not way to stop it other than deleting google acct. My other pet peeve is Webroot anywhere. My virus protection wanders off to any computer I log into and access my email from.

    Merry Christmas from Boston Dynamics.....

    By the way, Boston Dynamics is now owned by a Japanese Company called Softbank. SoftBank is HUGE....with major stock ownership stakes in lots of companies. SoftBank is getting ready to do an IPO. ( Initial Public Offering...of stock for sale to the public.)

    Here's a list of their structure:
