RE: Adapting proxo 4.5 to the latest OpenSSL DLLs
SSL is the biggest HEADACHE and NUISANCE known to man !!!...

the Proxo user-base is but a tiny FRACTION of what it used to be Sad
"newbies" that do tip their toe in the water discard it and throw it away within MINUTES of the toe-tip, it's "too complex" or there's just too many "certificate warnings"

the Proxo user-base is no longer a collective group of folks looking to "simply" remove advertisements but have never looked at HTML code in their life and wouldn't know the difference between decimal and hexidecimal

the Proxo user-base, or so it seems, is now a more geeky crowd that see reading HTML as more "recreational" than curling up with a blanket and reading a good book by the glow of a winter fireplace

point is, we have migrated into a more geeky bunch and i firmly believe that we serve ourselves better by REMOVING the [email protected] cert-check behavior ALTOGETHER instead of trying to "patch" it

by REMOVING it ENTIRELY, i would have a Proxo .exe that will function *AS-IS* for the next DECADE, without any "patches" from those smarter than i

if i rely on a [email protected] "patch", then just what happens a YEAR from now, six MONTHS from now ???
what if "amy" has moved on like so many Proxo users have?
