I usually include it into my rant, I forgot this time. No google chrome
for me, thank you very much. Nothing google to a degree possible. I don't
like my everything going to google (and NSA and whichever others)
databases. I know that 50% of my e-mail end up in googlemail anyway, like
this one definitely will, still...

Thanks for the hint though. It will help those who don't care to be
watched after like [those regimes all of us can name themselves]
