A way is to use an ip hiding tool while surfing, for a generýc use, like on searching portals.

Take your Pips, go out and Live.

Hi Luke, excuse my lack of IP networking knowledge, but does getting the "ip hidding tool" prevent you from getting cookies, spyware, or even viruses?

Hi rtrade,

Since Luke is not connected you can start surfing at What Is My IP Address - Shows Your IP Address and get some more infos. Try the ip look up function... it is the other side of the technology's coin

Hi redratsal,

Thanks, but I am aware of that, and I know the admins know all of our IP address. Fat Tails' thread is about these browsers spying on us...so I thought Startpage Search Engine was an interesting browser that doesn't spy on you, just trying to help. So when Luke said get the "hide ip thing" I got a bit confused...I have no interest in knowing where people are from via IP address, I just wanted to know if it would prevent spy ware...don't mean to confuse things too much.

No it doesn't, but if well done it preserves your identity so they cannot know who are you, so the data collected on your habits should result fake.

Adobe Flash Player Super Cookies


Fat Tails View Post
Thanks a lot for that useful link. For anybody, who wants to know more about the super cookies that are already stored on your PC, just click the following link

Adobe - Flash Player : Settings Manager - Website Storage Settings panel

The Adobe flash player stores cookies that are not controlled via the Browser, so they are persistent unless you change the Flash Player controls by visiting the Adobe Website Storage Settings panel.

I have now changed the website storage settings of Adobe Player not to allow for disk space for storing cookies. This prevents most of the websites from storing cookies. Nevertheless, some website still manage to store cookies. That must be the famous zero-space cookies.

Maybe they are using special tools or they have paid a licence fee to Adobe to get around the settings. Today I found a cookie generated by Trading Computers - Technology for High Performance People.

You can check this. Go to the Website Storage Settings of Adobe, delete all websites, and adjust the settings not to allow for storing cookies. Then open the website Trading Computers - Technology for High Performance People, watch the flash video. Then check the Adobe Settings Panel again, and you will find that the cookie reappears.

Adobe is cheating as well. They are all violating our rights and spying on us.

I will cheat as well and not pay anything for their software. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. I have always preferred the Old Testament to the New Testament, as it is compatible with game theory. See computer tournament initiated by Robert Axelrod. "Tit for Tat" emerged as the clear winner of the tournament. Only at a later evolutionary stage genetic algorithms were able to achieve better results for an iterated prisoner dilemma.

You can always use a custom HOSTS file to block any unwanted traffic.

Unless they use IP's instead of domain names.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

I'm pretty sure you can put both IPs & domain names in the HOSTS file. Won't work though if it is a site that you legitimately want to visit on occasion. So it may not work for MS and Adobe related addresses.
