In my humble opinion, every computer owner should go to https://www.grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2 occasionally and see if their computer is vulnerable to hacker attack. Their 'ShieldsUP' program will try and access your computer and give you the results.
If everyone did this simple thing, which only takes seconds, hackers would soon be out of business. (I tried this last night and was delighted to find that my PC was totally invisible :thumbsup:

While in the past you have earned "Job well done", this time I was referring to rowal5555's tip on computer ports.
