really???:surprised :surprised :surprisedThanks for the welcome guys:laughing:
I got more than Dale'd, the local Chev dealer's ad popped up in a thread indicating that they are mining your IP address.. not to cool methinks, I hate target ads :crazy:
thats 7 now if i count right, hi sean. i liked duntov-097, can you email him and invite him in??? :thumbsup:I have just been reading over at "the other site" and looks like a lot of people are getting banned for 30 days and indefinately and without warning. That pretty much leaves a really bad taste in my mouth for that site. I think I am here to stay, I just hope everyone abandons ship and comes here. Duntov-097 got banned and who knows who else. I am sure CTJackster is next after his last post..LOL.
well... it means it shows you advertising based on the city/state of the owner of the IP address (your isp, not you.)Paul - mining an IP address is using a lookup table to figure out where you are and then targetting you with all kinds of stuff ad-wise that you don't want. That was a good place to hang, this is better- they have a sense of humour

It's not a security threat or privacy threat in any way shape or form. You just see local ads instead of global ones.
That software actually stores your IP address and cross references a database where you have identified yourself, like logging in here...Right, it saves cookies on your system.
What did you move to after IT?
