How to Disable or Lock your Keyboard

I tend to be lazy to a lot of stuff, and one of them is unplugging cables from my PC. Nobody likes to do that, and that’s something required for cleaning your keyboard. So I decided to do another thing, disable it for few minutes, and here’s how I did it.

Thanks to HowToGeek I found this portable app called KeyboardLocker. What it does in disable all the inputs coming from your keyboard.

Easy to lock, easy to unlock.

It’s really easy to use, press Ctrl+Alt+L to lock/disable, and then type “Unlock” to enable it again. Easy as hell. This is nice if you don’t want people using your keyboard also.

AdBlock Plus starting to sell ads, time to switch to uBlock Origin

In recent news, AdBlock Plus will be starting to bypass certain ads if these comply with some criteria that the company sets. Since we don’t know what they consider as “criteria”, we better switch to something else right away.

And that’s when uBlock Origin comes in. I read about it a lot before this news, but I made the change recently due to being lazy.

I like it.

Main differences? Well, mostly the interface, and some RAM and CPU improvements over ye olde ABP. Also, the way that it allows you to block elements in the webpage reminds me a lot of how ABP worked on Firefox, that allows you to block elements in real time, instead of setting rules and stuff.

Anyway, switch to it as soon as possible. You won’t regret it.
