Excellent summary of how to configure safe internet browsing for the home based on Linux server, DansGuardian, and Squid.
My son found this “confusing”. I found it amazing and creative. And try to get that song out of your head.

See this link where there is a supurb animation of an exploding star (with a poor planet near by), resulting in a pulsar with a surrounding disk of rubble. The Hubble telescope has seen these same structures.
