    I'll be formatting my hard-drive for the next few days, so if you guys don't see me on IRC or here on the forums - don't worry. I'll still be here. I'll just be out of comission for a few days.

    Peace.

    Hey, look at that. I'm done already. All I have to do now is install about 12 programs and I'm set to go. I like speed. I have sites coming up in less than a second (before it took at least three) and programs are loading like there's no tomorrow.

    :lol:

    Nah, I've done this before. The only problems I've ever had is when I play games that aren't compatible and they freeze. Other than that Windows XP works like a dream.

    Okay, after about 45 minutes of playing with my firewall it finally let me back online. Damn firewalls. Why do they have to be so hard to configure?

    What kind of firewall? Software I'm guessing. Something like Zone Alarm, or more 'professional' software?

    if u were knowledged in the area of 'hacking' as i sort of am you would realise that firewalls actually don't work. If you aren't using your internet a 'hacker' can potentially get in through port 80 and u have no way of stopping it.
    Secondly 'hackers' need something to connect to on your computer before they can 'hack' anything. These are usually trojans and only stupid people would download a trojan or except one from someone.

    I don't use a firewall on my computer as i don't need to. I'm in a LAN which gives me a LAN IP address (192.168.0.4) there is no way you's could ping/conenct to it.
    I could go into great detail and prove that 'hackers' are non existant when actually people getting' hacked' is there own fault not the person 'hacking' you.
    to conclude this extreamly large post whcih i have nfi why i'm posting it as you won't understand.
    FIREWALLS DO JACK

    Heh, I'm hardly a newbie.

    It's crappy McAfee Firewall, but the problem is that if I don't put checks in the checkboxes that are supposed to be checked, my connection gets screwed.

    Heh, and it works just fine, too. I've had people ECHO bomb me and I didn't even start lagging a bit.

    It blocks anything sent to my computer that I don't want (i.e. UDP, ICMP Echo PING, etc).

    Broadband.

    And before you give me that "no-one can hurt you" crap, they can. I was knocked off by an ISDN user... heh, don't ask.
