    To Mr. C

    I have finished the first revision of you cookie restricted/trusted list

    Please give it a glance to make sure I didn't make any huge mistakes.

    Also, included in the list I have seperated most of those that had now security heading under NEITHER.

    Though some may have been kept under restructed in my final editing.


    Here are some of the sites that you listed as restricted and I was just wonder, why?

    RESTRICKTED BUT WHY?
    Paypal.com
    gamespy.com
    yahoo.com
    lycos.com
    msn.com
    macromedia.com
    netscape.com
    zdnet.org
    gamespy.com

    Here is the file.

    I feel sick.

    now I sleep. Ugh.

    P.S. I have little skill with MS word. Was mostly mouse grease.
    P.S.S. No spell checking was used in this post & I can not spell
    :zzz:

    Ok, got two hours of sleep and I'm back to my happy go lucky self.

    For that list, should I got through it and add *. to all the address that don't have the prefix/first part of the domain thingy. I.e. www. Forgot what it's call... again.

    Thanks, hope this is useful,

    Michael

    I warned you!
    Those are domains that I found in my cookies --- not places I was freaking visiting for crying out loud.

    OK, last time --- next joker brings that up gets a pop-knot on his noggin in the shape of the wishbone formation:hammer:

    geez, try to give these yahoos a hand and look how they treat you:laugh:

    I didn't think you were gonn'a let that slide though, not really:rolleyes:

    could be 3 possibilities.
    1.) due to an activity I deemed unacceptable, they may have fallen victim to a "blanket sweep" of domains within the cookies on my system.
    2.) possibly part of an old experiment in keeping IE windows from stealing focus.
    3.possibly because at the time I actually did not want that domains cookie or something.

    Keep in mind, this has been in progress for over 2 years so I'm not really sure in all cases. And after this amount of time spent, I am still in the learning process........but then, I think most of us are after all.
    Hopefully, any errors made will be on the side of caution, after all;)

    Nice work harvesting those domains, take a rest, you deserve it!:thumb:

    Does anyone have any info to offer on that rpcss.exe call I posted about earlier:?:
    As I stated, I was on the way to work and didn't have time to investigate the matter at all. But chalk up 1 more for ZoneAlarm:D

    ooh, these folks are nasty;
    http://www.wired.com/news/infostruct...7467%2C00.html

    I would highly reccomend you put
    *.xupiter.com
    on that restricted list of yours, and I do mean everyone.

    if you've been playing along, you will be happy to note it was already restricted from the use of my "not-quite master" list of blocked sites
