Happy to see you too Melbert!

And sorry about the annoying ads at the top of the page. I'll see if I can get rid of them, but I think that's part of having a free hosted site.

Hahah! That may have been me playing around. I tried to set it so the age wouldn't show and then I set 100 thinking that was the max possible age - maybe it was the minimum?

Don't know if NBC's Today Show still wishes people Happy Birthday for their 100th.

Yes, they still do Sisieq. Willard Scott is fumbling over the names really bad though.

Security and use of proxy servers

Post by Katiedot on Wed 02 Mar 2011, 03:40

One of the most annoying things about the internet is that no one knows who anyone else really is. I take it on trust that we all are who we say we are and I don't allow anyone to have more than one username or pretend to be anyone else.

I do see that there is someone who's (not very successfully) trying to hide her ID by using a proxy server. I would warn that if you're using sites such as hidemyass.com to surf the net, then every single keystroke you make and every site you visit including passwords etc are accessible to the proxy site you're using.

Given the obviously close relationship between proxy hosts and phishers, spammers and the like, you'd have to be very careful who you would trust with that information because there's a good chance that it could be abused.
