Surely someone out there has some link or suggestion to prevent others from seeing your IP address. I go to a site and they tell me way too much information about where I live, software I'm using, my mother's maiden name, how many dog I have and on and on....should be some way to block an IP....anyone have any feed back other than just live with it?

Local news paper blog. I have 3 screen names I'm blogging under and I was questioned about if they were all the same person? If you're thinking ~ no I don't visit those not suitable for anyone sites....

You can use a proxy server to hide your IP address from the web site. You can use a web based proxy, where you surf a site inside another site. Or you can set proxy servers inside your browser.

Sorry I'm so slow getting back to you ~ my appology. The power supply litterly exploded and I've been down waiting on a new one. Up and running today. Thanks for the post and links. They worked until I tried to post a thread on the board and they gave me a server error 503 ~ they have a good IT support staff no less. I can use the links on other web sites as well.
