    I tried to read the article about it over on Citizen Free Press without smiling, but couldn't.
    Europe is heading down that same path. Poland is about to become Facebooks least best friend.

    Yes , it's on the right side of my screen too . Looks like it covers the old "Advanced Search" window .
    All this has left me not knowing my left from my right . Technology frightens me ... I will just not go there .

    We have used duck duck go for several years now to prevent spying. No choice here though.
    The left hawg weighed 405, right one 315 which had my elderly neighbors grand daughter up a tree and why I got the call. Both charged, one from 20' and the other from 40'. Thanks to the good Lord and Samuel Colt I won. May God bless our Lawmen & Soldiers!

    Yes, it changed a few weeks ago.
    It use to say "Google Custom Search" and a white window to type you keywords into.
    Now, just click on "enhanced by Google" to open the window for Google's custom search.
    It is a very simple version of search and many times works better than the advanced search.
    ...BUT yes, Google does collect search data, where as the Advanced Search is only within this website's software and doesn't collect search data, as I understand it.

    Google or not, if we are on the web using any technology, someone is watching.

    There are choices for how you search this site. First, I didn’t know why anyone would use anything “Google” that can be avoided. They’re the biggest data mining organization in the world outside of the US government (or maybe the Chinese). You can search this site from any search engine including Dogpile, Duckduckgo, Bing, etc. by simply typing “castboolits [item you’re searching]” without the quote marks. To exclude other sites in the top returns you can type: site:castboolits.gunloads.com [what you’re looking for] without the brackets. It’s a pain to type that much but it’s an option. It’s how I find old threads and it works well.

    I noticed it after I had to do an upgrade download on my Mac Laptop - and yes - "Big
    Brother" is watching - as well as Biden's good buddies in Red China I'm sure.

    I suspect the change in image is a coding problem on Willie's end.
    The solid soft lead bullet is undoubtably the best and most satisfactory expanding bullet that has ever been designed. It invariably mushrooms perfectly, and never breaks up. With the metal base that is essential for velocities of 2000 f.s. and upwards to protect the naked base, these metal-based soft lead bullets are splendid.

    Forget everything you know about loading jacketed bullets. This is a whole new ball game!

    Its a front door to a custom search of the Castboolits site. I find the things Im searching for on a regular basis.

    Get AdBlock (or Brave web browser), and that stuff doesn't clutter up your screen.

    Excellent book:

    "If the service is free, then you are the product"

    I recently searched everything ever written here about Green Dot.
    Took all afternoon to read half of it.
    I started here searching everything about H110.
    That search took most of the year 2010.
    Thanks for the education!
