Default Burgandy Boat'* sig

The pic in your sig that outlines our system and ISP is kind of unnerving. Ignorance is bliss, you know what I mean. I would rather not know that my stats can be seen if there is nothing I can do about it.

No one else can see your stats, its a dowloadable image to your HD and it displays your ISP, Net Software and Operating system. Based on what you are running

No one else know what you are running. Don't worry. The only people that know anything are the admins and moderators....we know your I.P. addresses from your logins.

Don't sweat it

Yup...its just a .png file. Ever heard of "pinging" your system. Its a DOS command that sends out a "ping" and your computer responds to it.

This is just a more graphic form of a Ping....each person who has now downloaded that image has had their system "pinged"

I just noticed it. Where do I find something like that? I like playing with web stuff and that would be a fun one to use.

It'* pretty cool. I woundn't worry about it. Nothing is tracking your IP, and only you can see it.
