Destroying Browser History

Diana Beebe's Blog, Mermaids Don't Do Windows, Diana Beebe, science fiction, middle grade fantasy, fantasyIf something happens to me, my true friends will find a way to destroy my browser history.

Morbid, I know, but funny if you’re a writer and do a lot of research about things that you want to write about but know absolutely nothing about, such as secret societies and conspiracy theories and human sacrifices and scary stuff…

You know, I only know this because my writer friends talk about the topics they research…

*whistles and walks away*

The letter D is very special to me, you know, because of my name. Naturally, most things Diana are my favorites.

Diana was the Roman Goddess of the Moon and the Hunt and childbirth. Also known as Artemis by the Greeks.

Diana Prince was the alter ego of Wonder Woman (who was also an Amazon!). She can even fight with a baby strapped to her back. Balancing work and caregiving is quite a feat.

That Michael Jackson song and the Cabbage Patch Kid commercial from the mid-1980s are sooooo not special to me. Just so we’re clear on that. (And if you don’t know those Diana references, forget I said anything…)

Here’s more information about removing browser history:

When that moment comes, friends, I’ll whisper my passcodes so you can take care of my phone browsers and my computer browsers. You know I’d do it for you, too.

Would you want someone to destroy your browser history? Or would you leave it for all the world to know your researching history….Squirrel!

  1. I like what Kristen Lamb said about a writer’s browser history: If you’re not on one or more government watch lists, you’re doing it wrong. LOL

    After a little thought on this, I kinda think I’d want my browser history printed out and displayed at my funeral. It would give a chuckle to those who knew me well, and confound everyone else. In the past I’ve done searches for the best place to dump a body in New Orleans, long-term effects of heroin addiction, Fender Stratocaster, and which wine has the highest alcohol content. Just yesterday it included hot long-haired men, and the best places to have sex in public without getting caught. 😉 So I’m voting to keep my browser history and display it for the world to see!

    Oh, and your name always makes me think – however briefly – of Princess Diana. 🙂

      LOL. So true, Juli! I guess you’re doing things right. 😀

  2. I delete my browser history on a very regular basis. It’s scary how quickly those cookies and temp files and other tracking junk slow down your computer.

    • Diana Beebe

      Very good point! Those extra files can make things sluggish. That is a good reason to delete browser history.

  3. Thankfully I am unfamiliar with CP and don’t remember MJ’s song. 😀 Like you, I kinda like “D.” It rocks! I think your ninja readers will go all Samaria on your browser history. I needed those links. Thanks! You know by now I am soo not tech savvy. Learning, though. Somebody has to take care of me. Guess the job falls to ME! Weeee!

      D is an awesome letter for a first name! I’ll help you out with the tech stuff whenever I can. That’s what friends are for!

  4. Diana, this is so funny. I had never thought about clearing the browser history, but we had a similar discussion recently at church. One of our young women, a wife and mother of three, died suddenly. Our women’s group was serving lunch for the family before the funeral, and during the preparations, there was a lull in the conversation. One woman spoke up and said, “I made my sisters promise that, if anything happens to me, they’ll come over and clean my house before they tell anybody. And if any of you bring food over before they’re not finished, just leave it on the front porch.” A woman has to be prepared.

      It just goes to show where a person’s priorities are–clean the browser then the house or the house first and then the browser. 😉

      I’m really sorry to hear about the loss of your friend. My heart goes out to her family.
