I have decided to remove as much interaction with large data gathering companies as possible from all aspects of my life, including this website. From 1st February 2016 no tracking cookies of any sort are present here. Increasingly, the privacy of normal citizens is under threat from authorities and corporations who rarely show themselves to be trustworthy. I feel it is time for us all to no longer accept this and to make our own individual stand against it.
I am now using exclusively free and open source software for the various digital aspects of life and am close to no longer having or using any Google, Apple or Microsoft products.
