So please consider the following tools and tips, which will hide your IP address and have you surfing the Web in blissful anonymity in no time.

    Thanks for this ,Joe.

    Since I am already on Quanticos' radar*, I hope this scrambles their eggs a bit..

    * I wish I were kidding. I live in florida, yet my ISP is routed through Virgina.
    This is not tin foil hat paranoia, I have no other explanation....

      West Palm Beach ---> Dallas.


      VPN's are wonderful things. I'm learning.

      I might need to get with you 'bout some things.

    BTW there are only a few ways to handle something like torrents, but the client opens IPs. Unless the data is somehow redirected after the fact, they may track you.

    And people are getting wiser to this. I recently used it in one site, to see what it did without it unjustly recording ME, and it said I wasn't authorized, so I can only imagine it saw the IP as foreign and forbid it, or saw it couldn't identify me. IRONIC! I guess I will have to go to a library or something.

    BTW DON'T long into any big sites you have logged nto, like google. DON'T log into any from a fixed IP. Don't log in to any normally and through the proxy within a certain span of time, especially with the same IP. DON'T use the same browser!

    They have ways of matching such things and SOME, like google, are known to use them.
