The monopoly expands. 
https://techcrunch.com/2018/06/04/microsoft-has-acquired-github-for-7-5b-in-microsoft-stock/

I don't think it's mentioned in this article, but when I came across a direct link to this info on the 4th on github itself (No longer there,) the M$ CEO that is going to be running Github, was just recently the CTO (I think) of M$'s AI division.
A search of his name should bring it up.

Yeah, I don't know if this is a good thing, or something to be leery of.   ???

STFU! ::)
If you put a very light dusting of baby powder around the area you want to protect, you will get foot prints if a perp intrudes.  It is better than nothing, as the bottom of some shoes have brand markers, so the sole could be used to identify a perp later if the police catch one leaving your place.  Also, if you see footprints, it will give you an idea part of the perp's description in case you see them again.

Baby powder is easy to sprinkle from the $1 container.  If you do it lightly, a container can last a long time.  You can gently comb a soft broom over the area to reset it.

The most important thing is to sprinkle it very, very lightly so that no perp notices it.  Because if perps see it, they will just smear their tracks.

Best wishes with this pesky problem.  Do you still think I'm a Commie?  Are they polys?

Iíve used Duck, duck go for years. Many of the suggested alternatives are based in Germany. Thatís not a country known for privacy rights.  I pay for my own website and email server. If youíre not paying, youíre the product not the customer.

Right on.  ;)
Yeah, I have a tendency to stay away from German sites.

Startpage and searx.me are also pretty good as far as privacy goes.

TOR  can be used as the ultimate anonymity engine, but most people will have to change their browsing habits to maintain that status and not be unmasked.
(Someone needs to write a tutorial on that.)     ;)

'Til tomorrow everyone.     :)

Yeah.

Call me paranoid but I'm always suspect when there is some moral outcry and you start to see government officials and local news broadcasts about threats, usually salacious or violent, about some software etc. Headlines "Dark Web where you can hire hit man and buy drugs and government cannot do anything about it.)" "Encryption so strong the government can't break it being used by pedos," "Terrorists use social media app and the CIA can't access" etc.
