Recently I read an article on HN (Hacker News) Replacing Disqus with Github Comments and decided to drop the Disqus commenting system on this site. A long time ago I’ve added Disqus to my page because of it was easy to use and had out-of-the-box spam prevention. The cost of it as I see now was a heavy breach in privacy and site performance. When I read the article mentioned above I was shocked what I was forcing on people visiting my site. Just to give you an idea what’s going on:
The DuckDuckGo search engine website has been redesigned. Hurray!
It grew up from a crappy students project to a respectable Google competitor.
Compared to other search engines DuckDuckGo doesn’t intrude your privacy.
What? You want to know why you should care about your privacy?
I’ll let the real pros answer this question: https://duckduckgo.com/privacy
You might already knew it, the link http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/ULSViewer for the most popular ULS viewer doesn’t work anymore.
Luckily I’ve found a copy on my SharePoint server, you can get it below.
If you have a newer copy of the file it would be nice if you share it with me.
This post is part of my PowerShell PowerUp project.
The only way to deploy SharePoint default settings for site collections and sites manually is using predefined site templates or an ugly third party tool.
And in case you’ll do that with site templates it’ll cost a lot of the time to update settings which were already set.
However with PowerShell it’s possible to deploy SharePoint default settings automatically and it’s a lot easier than you might think.
