See if it created a file called “hosts.” (no extension) in yor system directory.

If so, it enables DNS, looks for the site you are interested in, adds it to your hosts file, then disables it. Thus URLs are resolved to their numeric IP addresses on your local computer without going out to the internet to do that.

That is my guess, anyway.

For those of us who are as literate in computers as Obama is in the constitution, what does this mean? My pop lives way out in the boonies and his internet crawls, and he was just complaining about it today. It won’t mess up his internet will it?

From what I’ve read, it just polls a number of DNS servers (at initial startup), and applies the one that replies fastest at that time.

It could cause problems -- just keep it in mind if you can't get to certain sites after awhile (they may have changed addresses)...

Here is a link to a review that explains how it works. I would follow their advice and go to the OpenDNS link in the review and learn how to back it up and change it manually first, just in case.

Though this program sounds like a good program, I would like to find a good VPN program, find some way to tunnel through Comcast and not have my browsing monitored.

We use OpenDNS so not an option here, but would be worth a try otherwise.

Private mode internet traffic can still be tracked. Got to have something that can tunnel normal internet traffic.

If you are “poor” and have a kid in school, call Time Warner... you can get ObamaNet... I mean discount high speed internet for $9.95 month guaranteed for 2 years.

Yes, it’s one of those Obama mandates that we are all paying for.

Me, rich? Bwahahaha! Cattle prices suck!

My Painthorse (whom is not paid for yet) eats 10 bucks a day, my dogs (2) eat 20 bucks a week.

I spend my food allowance at DG. $40 a week if that..If I didn’t have a ‘rich’ girlfriend, then I would be SOOL. She makes alot more than I do... She loves me and buys my gas and other things...I won’t go there.. I am just a poor ass cowboy.

The antenna is $60 or so, the booster is like $125. Well worth the buck...

You decide, ‘cause I ain’t rich. Got it?

I am soo gonna marry her!

The antenna works best with the booster. There are really expensive boosters as well as the cheap one that I have.

It all depends on your proximatey towards the tower. (forgive my spelling).

I have a good line on this, the antenna works good by itself as well (I am way back in the boonies)

I get the best signal on my Droid, my Aircard on my laptop sucks (Sprint). You listening, Sprint? You Suck, Bitch! Eff you...
