5 Things You Should Know – Part 69

Here are 5 things you should know.

1. There are sites that share farmed login details from thousands internet user every day and how you can protect your accounts.


Have I been pwned is a website where you can enter your email and it’ll scan all known dumps of farmed login details currently available on sites like Pastebin.

You can sign up to the site and they’ll send you an email as soon as it finds your email address on a new dump. There are over 10000 emails on this dump alone. Many people have absolutely no idea that their details have been compromised.

2. uBlock Origin Extra.


uBlock Origin Extra is a companion extension to uBlock Origin which allows the user to gain the ability to foil early hostile anti-user mechanisms working around content blockers.

For Chromium-based browsers, WebSocket connections are not available to the chrome.webRequest API. This companion extension will allow uBlock Origin to become aware of WebSocket connection attempts: they can be filtered and will be reported in the logger.

3. You can search a huge database of libraries by ISBN with a Wikipedia internal page.


This Wikipedia page lets you specify an ISBN and get a very large amount of data, like libraries around you (sorta) that carry it, booksellers you can get it from, and citation data.

4. US EPA Superfund sites.

5. How to retrieve a broken-off pin from an RCA jack.


First, get a fairly strong, – long needle. Bend the tip very slightly with some pliers, and the other end a larger bend to act as a handle. Like this. Then, use a lighter to heat the little barbed tip up until it’s red hot, and push it into the soft plastic inside the snapped-off pin, and twist it slightly so that it gets nicely hooked in there. Let it cool for a bit, and, gently pull the needle up, hopefully bringing the trapped pin with it. Don’t worry if you initially push the pin further into the socket – there’s a finite amount of space in there and you can still pull the whole thing out.
