Stumbled upon this site:
Very common message. I’ve been seeing this for a while. Pops up at the bottom of the Internet Explorer window. In the notification bar.
The hyperlink (URL) that I had opened to trigger the above message is the following:
I’m pretty sure that http://www.howstuffworks.com or http://howstuffworks.com (without the www.) was added to the Trusted Sites zone but fairly certain that http://electronics.howstuffworks.com is not.
I tried adding the following URL to the Trusted Sites zone in Internet Explorer 10.
In my case, the address http://electronics.howstuffworks.com is pre-populated (already there) in the Add this website to the zone box. So I just had to click the Add button and the Close button in the lower right of the Trusted Sites dialog box.
Internet Explorer has modified this page to help prevent cross-site scripting.
If you’re in a corporate, locked down environment, the only thing you can do at this point is modify the Internet Explorer settings. But many organizations do control or govern their systems, including Windows and its native web browsing application, Internet Explorer. The best thing I can offer to any end-user (information worker) having this message is to simply click on the x on the right of the message bar at the bottom of Internet Explorer.

Yes. The bar might be displayed until you navigate to a new webpage or click the Close button. For notifications involving security or privacy, Internet Explorer automatically takes the most secure action, and allows you to take less secure actions if you’re confident they won’t put your computer or information in danger.
Click the x to ignore the message and close the notification bar. The bar should [I think] also simply close itself if you do nothing, within like 5-10 seconds.
How do I prevent Internet Explorer from modifying pages for cross-site scripting? Under the security tab for IE8 there is a new Scripting Section for XSS Filter, Disable it and the issue goes away.
I don’t ever touch this setting unless there’s some business justification or an RFP (request for proposal) outlining why it’s feasible to disable that setting. However, if you’re not at work and just in the context of a home computer, not used for business, then I’d suggest do it only if you understand what it does.
For more on the [Cross Site Scripting] XSS Filter, read the following articles:

I checked on msnNow just now and was pleasantly surprised with tweets. Normally, I’m not a big fan of more Twitter anytime, all the time so to speak. For sanity sake I prefer to stay out of it and only use it when I need it. But this is nice because now I don’t need to go to Twitter for the news. I can get both search [SEO] trends. The one catch is that I need them connected for search engine optimization (SEO) and should be logged into both Bing and Twitter persistently, meaning that I check the keep me logged in checkbox when I login and connect the two in the respective governance settings. Those settings are usually on the settings menu on the top nav bar of most sites.
When trying to hit the above site I get the following error message:
There’s a Show content button with an x next to it.
The Apple World Wide Developer Conference is going on now. Products discussed, some new:
There’s an interesting command I discovered several weeks ago that exposed an even more interesting and previously unused feature of the [XBOX] Music app on Windows 8. In this post, all the screenshots were taken either with the print screen key [Prt Scn] or the Start + S combo [OneNote required] to get those tight lasso shots like this next photo below.
There’s this little hyphen icon in the lower right portion of the screen in the Music app:
This is the easiest, best way to get that same record store style experience. Especially with the new touch devices. Even on a non-touch PC like my Dell it’s a nice feature. In some cases, preferable to the built-in search that you get in all metro or modern apps in Windows 8. You just type and the search kicks in. When finished typing you just hit enter. You also get that same integrated search functionality from the Start screen and you can choose which app to use to search from. For example, the Bing app.
Interesting example [below] of redaction in a web page article that I suspect is to block content from non-subscribers. Or perhaps they need to just have you sign up, etc. Don’t know right now. Haven’t researched the site yet. Not really sure if I want to.
Screen shot [photo] below is a simple example that appears to be just a picture, like a Portable Network Graphic (*.png) or some other web friendly format
Here’s the link [URL] to the article:
Photo of the sample [image] below, snagged with the Start+S (OneNote required) keystroke combination.
Redactions are of interest to me because I first learned about what they really are from learning about the word processor Microsoft Word and supporting it from basic user functions to VBA (programming code) and macros. But you see them from time to time on television and in media coverage over court trials.
Only bad thing about this sample is that it’s not exactly because I’m mainly looking for journalism samples from media coverage of court trials where there’s redaction. But you can also just search the web. Good example would be of a 60 minutes interview with redactions, if there’s ones out there you can sample in a blog or something. Just something I can research later. Blogging the basics [above sample] portraying a simple across the board or “everything goes” redaction sample for readers.
Main purpose is to show for web developers providing a sample of redaction for communication and collaboration with web design, for future consumption.
Outlook Favorites is probably the most useful feature I’ve found in Outlook especially if you have multiple accounts and a lot of rules. And I mean A LOT of rules. I have so many rules I don’t know how many, don’t know how to count them, and don’t care. Mainly because of my use of Search folders, also critical for my email survival, if you will.
The nice thing is that you can add/delete them pretty easily. I’ll address how to add them later in this post but for now, here’s how you delete Favorites in Outlook:
Clicking on Remove from Favorites takes it off the Favorites sub-pane but you’ll still have the folder. So it’s just a place for shortcuts, basically.
The last rule, I just recently created, is one called Important Mail, shown here:
***IMPORTANT***: Do NOT use outlook.exe /cleanrules until you export your rules. I’m not sure if the 2013 version of Outlook handles any kind of auto-backup of rules but from my experience it’s important. Especially when it’s a common troubleshooting step used in your organization. Basically, if you use Outlook at work, back ‘em up! But it’s good to backup rules anytime, for obvious (backup) reasons (backup).
Click on the Manage Rules & Alerts… command found under the Rules sub-menu under the Home tab
In the Rules and Alerts dialog box click Options:
Click Export Rules…
Name it the default, just for a test run:
Save in the default location
Now that the rules are backed up, put that feather in your cap for when someone asks you to do /cleanrules. Just in case you forget to back them up, you should have that there for risk management purposes.
Now that Rules backup is out of the way, it’s pretty simple to create the Search folder I added to Favorites:
Under the Folder tab click New Search Folder:
Click on Important Mail and click the OK button
You should now have it under Search Folders in the left pane:
Drag that up into the Favorites section of the left navigation pane by clicking on Important Mail and dragging it up to the Favorites area until you get it in between [the folders] where you need it to go:
Once you have it there then release the left mouse button (primary button for you lefties out there).
