    Thanks for helping out guys!

    I just wanted to send out a public thanks to sTs950, Angus, and Steve Lux for joining in the MJ-12 effort with me and PY 22!

    Some of the DPC members have been upping their connections to be able to push more URLs/day. Since this is a bandwidth and not CPU intensive project, help can sometimes be rare because of Comca$t's and other ISP's usage restrictions.

    Everything you guys are contributing is greatly appreciated!!!

    Is there anything anywhere to assist with setting up the client?
    Buckets, threads, optimizations to get the most out of it etc?

    How do you change your email address even?

    Thats one of the negative aspects of M12.
    There are a lot of sites out there containing malicious HTML code.

    It has been said thats it is OK because your not actually running the code in a browser but as you have discovered it is still risky.

    M12 also scans a lot of very 'seedy' sites that i would not want to be associated with.
    This was the main reason i gave up on it.

    MJ-12 is deep scanning the entire web, just like Google has. We've found and scanned 1/2 of the known web "according to Google" without anything but users helping.

    The idea that it scans shady sites is a bit misleading. It's not searching for bad stuff, it's just searching for anything. And be sure that Alex won't let questionable sites be listed (i.e. kiddie porn or things of the such).

    @IB:

    There is a thread for node optimization. Be very careful because, depending on your ISP, you could be facing bandwidth limitations unbeknownst to you as of yet. For some reason the main site's down (at 1:30AM my time), so I'll find that thread and post it tomorrow.

    MJ-12 also doesn't execute any code from websites, so your computer is entirely safe. There's also a thread about getting Anti-Virus programs to ignore such false-positives. I'll get you both links as soon as I can. Then you can make your own decisions from there.

    I've been running the node for years now (on this PC) and have yet to get a virus or piece of spyware on here from the node or any other source for that matter.

    Problem with router, help

    Hi to all!. I recently changed my computer and installed operating system, and i have many issues that i wanted to resolve, but i have no idea. I used ubuntu, but i've installed windows 7 and my opinion is that that there are some issues with brandmauer. I can't use mysql channel because it's also not working and many ports are not visible to other clients from the internet. Perhaps, it is a problem with cisco, but I don't know for 100%. So what is your opinion?
