Hi everyone. I just joined up to the forum and wow.. theres so much friggin stuff! with so much information available to me I figured it would only to appropriate to start out giving something so here is a quick way to get and test some proxies. if you google "free proxy list" or "proxy list" you will get all kinds of results from sites offering this. Most the results are bad but here is an easy way to weed them out without having to use any software. Go to the site and highlight the list... now copy that to your clipboard. Open up whatever spreadsheet program you have. In my case its openoffice calc, and paste your list into the spreadsheet... highlight the column with the IP addresses and shown by selecting the first one, holding shift, then clicking the last one on the list. Now paste them into the box at http://www.checker.freeproxy.ru/checker/ and scan them... thats it pretty simple. pretty effective. I always wind up with some proxies.
