    Just wanted someone to confirm something for me.

    All the outbound link on BHW now go through anonymizeit and another one I cant remember. This only blanks out the refer. It does not hide your IP address. So when you go to a direct download thinking you are been anonymized', you are not, just the referrer is.

    I just double checked this by checking my IP using anonymizeit and lo and behold there is my IP starring me in the face. I cleared my cookies, etc but it was still there.

    So dont forget to still use a proxy when downloading directly from the vendors site.....unless someone can point out why I am wrong (which I am more than happy with too :))

    This may have been mentioned before but surely it cant be overstated.

    Yes, it's only meant to blank the ref...
