Privacy / IP Cookies: For lack of a better name

IP Cookie is a good name, imnsho...

I certainly can't think of another name suitable to this privacy intrusion...


Questions and Answers / using Proxomitron with AOL..
« on: August 31, 2002, 01:47:05 AM »

while I'm not using AOL (and won't unless I get a lobotomy), I believe AOL uses a customized version of Internet Explorer. Besides setting the proxy in AOL, also set it in your internet control panel.

If AOL does not allow you to use an external proxy, download a better browser, and connect through there. Once you have connected to the WWW using the AOL software, you should then switch to the other browser, where you _can_ set the proxy settings.

Hope this helps!

Good filters. I was unaware Webcrawler had resorted to this kind of IP tagging... the filters are part of my config set now


Questions and Answers / After Updated Prox.css
« on: August 28, 2002, 12:54:13 AM »
Prox.css originated with Paul Rupe, at

I immediately liked the idea, and have since been using it as an always-valid user stylesheet as well

The default is this:
/* Style the Proxomitron Javascript toolbar */
  background-color: green !important;
  color: white !important;
  border: thin solid white !important;
  width: 100% !important;
  text-align: center !important;
  margin-top: 2em !important;

/* Generate replacement content for Proxomitron's kills */
  font-size: xx-small !important;
  font-weight: normal !important;
  font-style: normal !important;
  font-family: "Times New Roman" serif !important;
  display: block !important;
  padding: 0 !important;
  margin: 0 !important;
  max-width: 9em !important;
  overflow: hidden !important;
  white-space: nowrap !important;
  text-transform: lowercase !important;

  content: "[" attr(kill) " - " attr(detail) !important;
/*  content: "[" attr(kill) !important; */

  content: "]" !important;

@media print, projection
  /* Hide Proxomitron's kills altogether when printing */
    display: none !important;

@media print
  .proxlink, .proxtoolbar
    display: none !important;

Compare it with my prox.css's bottom section, or someone else's, and you'll see most of us have left these basic rules pretty intact.

My prox.css differs from Paul's in several ways:
-Several "style links" classes are added to the top
-Links with target=_new or target=_blank are marked
-My link bar filter gets its CSS from here
-I added some other .prox rules, and, for me most importantly, have added a 'quick toggle' to toggle kill display.
/* Quick hack to toggle kill display  */
.prox, .proxlink, .proxtoolbar, .proxtable, {
/*    display: block !important; */
    display: none !important;

The current version of my prox.css (HIGHLY customized) can be found in my config, or directly here:

Do keep in mind my config may not be what you want, it is quite aggressive.

But I'm quite willing to help you understand it, for editing


Feature-Block / Change Flash & Sounds to link
« on: August 26, 2002, 05:15:22 PM »
Good change

I had actually been using '$NEST(<object,</object>)|<(embed|bgsound)s*>' as my bounds for some time, forgot to update this message.

Oh, and add these two extensions to the filter as well: wmx, wma (Windoze Media)


Questions and Answers / Auto URL Linker

If you are a member of the Proxomitron Yahoo!Group, take a look at the filter called '' in

This is the "best" version I have found yet, but it is really slow.

There are quite a few of these filters available, I think the Yahoogroups archive has one using blocklists, which works for 99% of all URL's (Including those without http:// , no www. , or IP addresses).

But since they break pages, I don't use them -- instead, I use an Opera feature: if you highlight text, you can send it to a search engine (defined in search.ini)

I added the following two 'search engines':
[Search Engine 12]
Name=Open URL (no &http)
Is post=0
Has endseparator=0
Search Type=13

[Search Engine 13]
Name=Open U&RL
Is post=0
Has endseparator=0
Search Type=13

Edit number and Key= for your search.ini

Using this tweak, I can open anything that looks like a URL with one mouse-click combo


Questions and Answers / Flash Animation Killer

*L* JD, see you found it while I was typing it myself.

In my case, some other filter must be killing it. (I think start.js fools the browser sniffing)

Questions and Answers / Flash Animation Killer
« on: August 24, 2002, 12:24:31 AM »
Mystery solved!

This flash file is written by a Javascript,

Try this filter (not tested):

Name = "Convert Flash animations to links"
Active = FALSE
URL = "($TYPE(htm)|$TYPE(js)) & (^$LST(AllowFlash))"
Bounds = "$NEST(<object,</object>)|<embeds*>"
Limit = 1024
Match = "<1s*(shockwave|macromedia|flash|swf)*&"
        "*<param name=$AV(movie) value=$AV(2) >)*)"
Replace = "<a href="2" class="flash" class="proxlink"> 2</a>"

I think this should do the trick.

Pretty weird... for me it's an animated GIF,

Anyway that filter does work.

The reason for clearing your cache, is that otherwise Prox will probably never come into play, as Opera will display the cached version of the page instead. It is not required for the filter itself.

otelman: correct. Kerio 2.x is a direct successor to TPF 2.x

Also, Kerio 3 (beta) and Tiny 3 look _very_ alike.


Spam Blockers / Banner Killers: Another Two
« on: August 23, 2002, 06:23:10 PM »

A few notes/questions:
Kill: Banners (linked) uses <as*</a>. Isn't $NEST(<a,</a>) faster?

Kill: Banners (not linked) uses a lot of strings which could be optimized.
Mine looks like this: <i(mg|nput)s*>|<frames*>|$NEST(<iframe,</iframe>)|$NEST(<layer,</layer>)|$NEST(<ilayer,</ilayer>)|$NEST(<object,</object>)|<embeds*>|$NEST(<applet,</applet>)
(As you can see I also added applet and frame. The latter because in MSIE's backwards compatibility mode, it works the same as iframe when used inline, with the exception that it has no closing tag).

Question: is there a difference in functionality between <iframe*>(*</iframe>|) or <iframe*>(|*</iframe>) and $NEST(<iframe,</iframe>)?
Iframes without a closing tag don't work anyway.

Also, embed has no closing tag: it was never part of the HTML standard, and thus did not transfer to XHTML, which added closing tags for all elements. Correct HTML uses <object> instead, and this tag does require a closing tag.

Typical <embed> usage (only in HTML4.01 Transitional Documents and lesser) is still:
<EMBED SRC="/path/file.cmx WIDTH="100" HEIGHT="200">
  <P>Sorry, but you do not have a Corel CMX plugin for
   displaying Corel CMX image files. Here is an alternate
   version, as a regular GIF.</P>
<IMG SRC="/path/file.gif" HEIGHT="200" WIDTH="100"
 ALT="stupid example image">

Lastly, is the post edited with all changes, or need I download the zipfile again to get the last version of AdDims as well?

Altosax, unless you use a different string, the double + is not necessary, since that'd send the string something +anything +this +that +you +me to Google: Google by default uses all keywords entered (unlike other search engines).

In most search engines, searching this that will find pages containing this and that, pages with only this, and pages with only  that.
Not so in Google: it always searches for all keywords, so you'll only get pages containing this and that.

The exception are so-called common words, if you _have_ to search the room, and not just room, you should use a + in front of it. So only in that case would using a double + be needed.

I can't see any flash there

Check the page, the windmill in question is an animated GIF image -- which can be killed by Opera's F12 - 'Enable GIF animation' toggle.

Regardless, this filter of mine kills all flash animations:

Flash & Sound killer

I use Opera only, and never see a Flash file I don't want to.
