Re: Tar.ttp

The bzip from your Falcon can be used by renaming it to bzip.ttp.
The executable from the /bin folders are all TOS programs without extensions.
In the UI world they are called console programs, we normally call then TOS programs.

Re: MINT: We don't make this easy do we?

web designers are just designers
so they design webpages... with content tools that drag & drop components to put together a web page.
they do not code web page html any more.
just like you go to subway and they put together a sandwich for you, they do not do the cooking.

Your browser has a built-in ad blocker.....

Most ads runs mostly on javascript. Your built-in ad blocker stops javascript from running by not putting in a Javascript engine into your browser.

From your description it sounds like you've installed ad-malware. They can seldom be found in the official Play Store, usually they come with apps sideloaded (installed from untrusted sources), a setting you have to manually enable. That's great.
