My recommendations for Bitwarden’s “Domain rules” system

Last updated: 13th of December 2018

So let’s say that you’ve begun to use Bitwarden as your password manager of choice, and have become intrigued by the possibility to get quick password autofills not only on your web browsers, but also on your Android phones. There’s just one problem: The setup for that is really cumbersome.

The default domain rules are not only woefully inadequate, and have no rules that cover Android apps, but they haven’t been updated for months (if not years) despite how it’d be very easy to do so for a GitHub-hosted, open-source project, as they simply can’t be bothered to merge any pull requests about them for whatever reason.

So here’s my attempt to remedy this issue in some way!

How to create a Flattr auto-donation link

So you may possibly have begun to use Flattr, or are at least curious as to how it works. In its current incarnation it automatically measures which internet contents you’re making use of, and Flattrs them roughly accordingly.

But wait a minute, wasn’t there a button at some kind of site that allowed for double-pressing, which has set up recurring automatic monthly Flattrs to that user? Where did those buttons go?

It turns out that yes, they can still be used! But they’re not super-intuitive to create, so this short guide will help you achieve that.

How to access Disney.com from abroad and worldwide

Have you ever lived outside of America, and have been pissed off that you haven’t been able to access Disney’s American websites since 2013? Don’t despair anymore, because I’ve found the solution.

All you have to do is to add /?intoverride=true to the URL you’re trying to access.

Prominent example links:
• http://www.disney.com/?intoverride=true
• http://fairies.disney.com/?intoverride=true
• http://movies.disney.com/?intoverride=true

As far as I can determine, only visiting one /?intoverride=true link will add a cookie to your browser that makes all American URLs (even those without the tag) load the American website versions from then on. Which is a very good thing, if there’s any doubts about it.

This has been tested from Norway with a Norwegian IP address, and I have every reason to think that this will work in virtually every other country on planet Earth as well.

How to remove tens of gigabytes of meaningless caches that are on your hard disk

So you’ve owned your Windows PC for a few years, and probably one with an Nvidia graphics card, or maybe even just for one or two years. And you’ve found yourself wondering, “Is it time for me to invest in a bigger hard disk?”. However, you can possibly be able to hold off the purchase for another while, since chances are that a considerable percentage of your hard disk is currently filled with practically meaningless caches, temp files and fallback files, that can reach into the tens of gigabytes on many systems.

In this article, I’ll cite all the culprits that I am able to remember from memory, after having undergone a deep cleaning process a few days ago.
