Everipedia: Replacement for Wikipedia
article #1075, updated 40 days ago

I imagine some readers are aware, and probably many suspect, that Wikipedia editorship has been taking large numbers of valuable articles out of commission in the last year or two, and refusing publication of many others, for widely questioned reasons. Happily, well-equipped others have noticed, and have set up a replacement:

http://everipedia.org

It has everything Wikipedia does (Wikipedia licensing requires permission to copy), plus more and more.

United Parcel Service and Firewalls
article #1019, updated 235 days ago

A page has been recently deleted from the UPS web site, which included:

If I connect to UPS servers through a firewall, are there any known issues?

Because the response from the UPS server may show as unsolicited to your firewall software, you may need to configure your firewall software to accept messages from our unique range of UPS IP address ranges: “207.24.0.*”

At this writing, an in-site search on http://ups.com and a Google search still brings up the page reference, but the page is gone.

Offline installers in many languages.
