    Alas, a typo did sneak into my post there.....my cursed humanity and imperfection sneaking in again. Surely there must be a god of irony somewhere.

    And you make a good point Bob.

    I couldn't agree more with all of you. The problem is the fact that I never got myself to bother enough to actually learn the correct grammar rules. Mostly, I write on feeling. And I don't mean this as a suck up.
    You are not my teachers, and you are not being paid for it, therefore you should not have to correct me when I make mistakes.
    But I would appreciate it, since some of the mistakes I make come from my lack of knowledge; I am in fact not even aware of it.

    Whatever we do seems to be working though, since your posts as of late have had a marked increase in quality. It's not the occasional spelling mistake we're bitching about, that can happen to anyone. its wen entrie postst lok liek tis we ge t mad.

    I would say that you don't actually know a language before it comes natural enough to be written on feeling while keeping good spelling and grammar. Incidentally, reaching that point requires you to pay attention to school or other venues of learning.

    And don't rely solely on translation tools no matter how fucking funny they are.

    *Gives Philes some whiskey for the shock*

    Now could anyone see my IP, or is it only visible to the Admin, and Moderators?.

    moderators should be able to see it. On all the forums I have been moderator on, I have been able to see the IP of those that posted in my sections.


    And I can't say that I am an expert, but the only way to change your IP is to get a new modem. But generally you can send out fake IP with your firewall, but I am not sure that admins/mods would see the fake IP or not.

    Off Topic: interesting. I am trying out Safari browser at the moment, and it seems like it has a built in spelling corrector.
    I think I like it.

    Dynamic IP. Less than half a minute, and you have new IP. Of course it's rather limited, and basically guarantees no anonymity.

    I doubt it. Also, I don't think it is possible to get a rogue ISP and the entire net to somehow give you arbitrary false IPs.

    Ah, it was dynamic IP I was thinking of. I must have misunderstood how it worked. Thought it was the firewall that showed a "fake IP" so it would be harder to see the real one.

    I have still these questions:

    1. How can anyone see the difference between a false IP, and a normal IP?.

    2. On his/her IP's can anyone see where it came from, right?.

    3. So, it seems that those silly buggers must buy each year another modem?.

    PS: I hope this is the right place to questions these things, because I did not knew where to place this, and I did not want to make another thread.

    No they don't. It just depends on your ISP. Some ISPs give you a static IP (always the same one) and other ISPs give you a dynamic IP (you get a new IP everytime your router connects to the Internet). For example if I want a new IP I only have to switch my router off and then on again and I've got a new IP.

    One can't an IP-address can be any number in the form of x1.x2.x3.x4 where x1, x2, x3 and x4 can be any number between 0 and 255, though some are reserved for special purposes like 127.0.0.1 which refers to your own computer. All of them however are valid and real, yet some are not used.

    So in reality a false IP doesn't exist. However one can 'fool' a site by first connecting to another computer (a proxy) and then connecting to the site trough that computer. That way the site will only see the second computers IP and not yours. The second computer however will still be able to see your IP.
