    That's some good "advertising" for NoScript.

    What she's really addicted to is Virtual Machines and Browsers.
    [Quote]I use different virtual machines to host various types of browsers that I use for different kind of activities[/Quote]

    A red, a yellow and a green. We know that the yellow is Firefox with NoScript, but nothing about other browsers or the system that is virtualized in each VM.

    Visiting hackademix is a "red task", so what do you use now Joanna? ;)

    It looks like the host is OS X.
    quoting from the article:

    "(I use Windows in my guests and Mac OS X on the host)."

    Not wanting to pay the apple tax any more, I'm having a dumb try with a linux flavour as a host for VirtualBox to do the really secure work. The learning curve is steeper than it was for OS X, but I think the isolation of the net interface is worth the effort.

    She's a bit paranoid isn't she?
