Protecting Your INternet Anonymity

Those of you who use P2P programs probably have heard of Peerguardian2 and maybe you still even use it. Well the next level in peerguardian is a program called peerblock which is based off the open source code for peerguardian 2. The makers of peerblock realized that PG had not updated the program and so took it upon themsleves to rework it slightly. I was having problems with PG and found peerblock to be nearly identical, but without all the issues i have been having. Also they are attempting to raise fund so as to get a digitally signed driver so as to be more avaible on Vista. I suggest anyone who use p2p and wishes to protect their anonymity to check it out.

For some you may not know what this program does or even why you may need it. The program block certain IP adresses form connecting to your computer using blocklists which are updated and can be found on the site as well. Some say it is not affective and truly doing htis and is useless. Although it is no where near fool proof i say it can cut your risk down tremendously of having people who you do not want knowing what you are doing. The program is very small and does not even use much memroy to run in the background while you surf the net.

In short if you have been searching for ways to protect your identity online and found posts about Peerguardian2, i want to reccomend trying the new updated PeerBlock instead. It seems liek these new programmers and trying to keep it more up to date than the old Peerguardian site. So the chances of better features and more helpful interfaces are more likely with Peerblock. Even if PG2 works well for you i would suggest trying peerblock just for the fact they are trying to make it better and are working hard.

Typing Hurts

Well it has been awhile since I wrote a blog , but since I am trying to whore myself out it was time to write a new one. Some people may think that I am trying to sell out or whatever, but I am just trying a new way of doing stuff. If I can work it out it will be better for me. I am the same person I have always been and my new stuff will pander more, but it will still be mine. I need to work on my style and find somehting that works for me and everyone at the same time. This maybe a learning process for me but hopefully it will be succesful. I appreciate all the help I can get and look forward to making this journey with the old people who have been around since i use to make 10 videos a week on Youtube and looking forward to more people enjoying what i may have in store for them. It seems that a lot of people do this sort of thing on the internets, but in reality it is a tiny minority of overall population who do it and even fewer who do it well. With some practice and patience i hope to do it well someday. It is not for everyone, however I am going to make it for me.

For more whoring myself out I am going to ask the following: subscribe to youtube, add me on facebook, subscribe to this blog , subscribe to my blogtv and tell anyone you think would be interested in my way of things. Thanks again for the three people who will read this someday.
