But learning! Being new to alot of this stuff and having had quick success, I'm only now realizing the importance of hiding my ip address (made a few bucks on a social network profile made without any effort to hide myself). Okay, so I'm hearing good stuff about ghostsurf but also bad stuff (bugs, crashes etc). If I want to use something on MY system to hide my ip rather than go to a web based solution, would the overall consensus be ghostsurf? And when I get it up and running how often does it change my ip address? So if I want to create some profiles on a site, is each one created using a different ip address? Sorry for the basic questions here, just trying to figure it out.
