About [[Neo]]

[[Neo]]

[[Neo]]

I am a web programmer, system integrator, and photographer. I have been writing code since high school, when I had only a TI-83 calculator. I enjoy getting different systems to talk to each other, coming up with ways to mimic human processes using technology, and explaining how complicated things work. Of my many blogs, this one is purely about the technology projects, ideas, and solutions that I have come across in my internet travels. It's also the place for technical updates related to my other sites that are part of The-Spot.Network.

April 18, 2011 | | 2 Comments

Changing my SafeSearch settings on the different computers I use is annoying and the setting doesn’t carry over from one computer to another. While messing around with configuring Google SSL as my default search engine, I tried messing with my SafeSearch results, and found a setting to Lock them. The resulting configuration was not what I was looking for (it locks to “Strict”, I wanted it “Off”), but it’s still a handy tool for parents and people sensitive to such material. So here’s how you configure it: Read More
