Duh! A proxy, of course. Why didn't I think of that. I imagine that is what most hackers do to avoid being caught. Shows you how much I know about all this.
I really was baffled by all the...

Did I miss something in the news? Was there some kind of major hacker attack coming from Korea on July 27 or something?
Repeated alerts to my Zone Alarm while I was working at the computer this...

I don't think we are talking big bucks here anyway, are we? When I subscribed for another year of updates with my NAV 2000, I paid a whole three dollars. I have since purchased Norton System Works,...

So what's an old lady like me doing in a young place like this? I knew I was one of the only old timers around here, but have a hard time believing I'm the only old timer. C'mon you lurkers out...
I've just started to sell online in the past week. That's one reason I haven't been around here much. There's nothing like trying to learn image editing, HTML, and use of a scanner and digital...
What do you find confusing? Do you mean something different by "rank values for the forum" than Guus means? You might need to be more specific.
My understanding is that that used to work. But with the more recent ones, such as Klez, which use their own SMTP engine, it is no longer applicable. Someone who understands these things better...

Regarding your last question, Prankster, this is in the AntiPoints section of the Site FAQ. See the section "How much of a Punch Do My Points Pack."
There is a link to the site FAQ at the right...

A few suggestions, (V)/\><
1. Never pass on any warning received in an email "just in case."
2. Bookmark some locations on the web where you can readily look up things which you think might...

Thanks for that, 5150. I feel much better now! :D
And BiZaRo, let me rephrase what you said near the end of your initial post.
"My point is that if you want to be esteemed and honored, you...

I am shocked and frustrated at the arrogance of some of the replies! I see boards like this, where people from around the world have the opportunity to discuss their different points of view, as...

First he has the bad threads commit suicide, so we don't get to give the negative antipoints we otherwise might.
Then he goes through the site suggestions like a mad man, and he closes those...

. . . how am I ever going to get "balanced" again if all the bad threads kill themselves before I even see them! :D
I'm only half-joking here. I think the recent changes to the system are...

Currently when one opens the box to assign antipoints to a post, they find a link at the bottom which asks "What are AntiPoints?" That link takes one to the original thread where antipoints were...

I am wondering if part of your question here deals with a person who perhaps has had more "greenies" but has received some negative antipoints. You are wondering if that person can still give out...

Thanks for clarifying that, rogue_scholarX. :)
Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! So perhaps my memory failed me again! :o (Aren't you glad you aren't old yet?) Though I still do think I got a...

khakisrule - By "Assign Positive or Negative AntiPoints To This Post," I obviously mean the link one clicks to assign antipoints to any post. By "that thread," I mean the thread (post) in which JP...

Surely two computer geeks should be able to combine two pictures of themselves into one photo to make it look like it was taken of the both of you together. Might be interesting.

In JP's initial announcement of the AntiPoint system here, he included the following statement:

Thanks for the replies, mohaughn.
So how vulnerable are software firewalls really? And how difficult are hardware firewalls to configure?
A year or so ago I installed Zone Alarm instead of...

Thank you for your replies.
Yes, JCHostingAdmin understood correctly. I think this, as well as anything else that gets asked repeatedly, belongs in the site FAQ, which can now be reached from the...

Whoa! What if sumdumguy and avdven were right? It might not even be another "newbie" who was trying to rock the boat. What if it were someone like focmaester? Most likely he is around here...

The question keeps coming up about how many points a person needs before they can assign greenies, which actually have a positive point value, to others. Sometimes newbies get negs just for asking. ...
June 21st, 2002, 08:02 PM
This question keeps coming up, and the answer is not in the Site FAQ, as some people believe. So I am going to suggest that it be put there. (I'll post it in site suggestions, so JP will be likely...
