NetBarrier just detected a port scan from 216.22.45.41

None of my browsers were operating at the time.....

I have since tracked it down to the den of thieves that is AI

Though being hosted at the same location it would be nice to hear on official reply.

(and I have cut back on my porn until I get better "protection" )

Don't matter if you just view it, the only difference between viewing and downloading is that when viewing the image is stored in ram and deleted as soon as you close the window or go to another page(though sometimes it will be cached, depending on youur setings)
