    OK, folks, I've been feeling pretty creative lately so I made us a new OCDO Toolbar!

    It has a list ofhelpful links, recent OCDO postings, local weather,e-mail notifier and pop-up blocker as well as internet search.

    If there's anything Open Carry or gun related that you folks want to see added to it, just ask. I can update on the fly and it'll automatically update all installed toolbars.

    Click the link to take you to the download page!
    http://ocdo.ourtoolbar.com

    If you have any questions just ask!

    MOST RECENT UPDATES

    Just added a radio feature with all the VCDL VA-ALERT Podcasts and the NRA News Channel.

    8 July 2007
    Changed New Posts pulldown to list onlynew posts in each forum. Not yet implemented forState Forums....just too many individual states. Working on a solution.

    I don't see no monkeys. Is this a joke?

    Edit: Can see them with IE, but not Firefox.

    Added a radio feature preloaded with the VA-ALERT Podcasts and NRA News and a built in chat feature.

    Let me know which chat feature is better, this toolbar one or the irc chat?

    Sounds like you need flash player plug-in installed or updated in firefox.

    it would be nice if you could get the new posts pull-down to take you to the latest unread post like the little green arrows do.

    I'm using Firefox with all the latest updates and plugs, and I don't see anything either.

    For firefox users, you need to manually copy the link and go to the page. For some reason, clicking on the link in this thread won't launch the install routine.

    I'm using FF 2.0.0.4 on WinXP SP2.

    I just changed the link to take you from the Windows installer to the download page where you can select IE or Firefox.

    Here's that link as well: sitedzn wrote:

    Excellent. Now I can check the forums and be stealthy at the same time at work.

    Bob, maybe you could put the popular state forums in it. Maybe the ones that get posted to everyday or so. Maybe Missouri, Nevada, Virginia, Washington, Utah and a couple others.

    Yeah, Joe, I'm probably going to just that as a quick workaround. Have been very, VERY busy starting up a new business, sorry folks!

    Bob don't feel like you have to do it right away. Please do take your time and for pete's sakes don't apologize to us because you are busy.

    Is there any way to remove the search? No offence, but I realy prefer the google search bar. Also, is there a way to customize the links?

    Just to let everyone know, the company that makes these toolbars does use them to track search results, links you click on, and serves you their own search results rather than letting you use Google search or another search engine. Nothing malicious, but it is trackware....some antispyware software might flag it or remove it. I don't think they are gathering any personal info, but anonymous statistics, referrer links, etc. If you are OK with that, then great, but the idea of someone else tracking where I go on the Internet doesn't sit right with me.......:?

    If you Google the company or even "ourtoolbar" the results will show this........

    Does anyone else see the gross irony in a toolbar meant to promote the ideals of OC, including the fight against registration that then tracks the user?

    If you don't want to be tracked then don't use any G00gle product. I use Scroogle Scraper in its stead.

    I agree with companio365 and Doug, there is nothing wrong with the search engine attached to our toolbar. It does the SAMETHING as Google, Live.search, Yahoo, AltaVista and Dogpile, they all collect anonymous data. The website owners that utilize the search engines for advertising use the collected data to learn where there "visitors" come from and how they interact with their site. They then use the collected information to improve their online results, write better ads, strengthen their marketing initiatives, and create higher-converting websites. So, feel free to abandon all the above listed search engines and many more that I have not listed if your that concerned about your internet usage. But remember, your connecting through several servers at your ISP and several servers at your intended site and these all collect similar data. I typically use Google but, on special occasions, (when I feel the need for privacy) I will use Scroogle Scraper (just like Doug) which is available at: http://www.scroogle.org/cgi-bin/scraper.htm.

    Take care and stay safe,

    Bob

    If you truly want to be anonymous while browsing the web, the best way I've found is to use TOR and Privoxy.....TOR is an anoymous bouncing proxy server (so when you load a page it uses a random proxy from across the world...makes it nearly impossible to track your location, but it slows you way down), while Privoxy strips all referrer information, such as browser, tracking cookies, OS version, etc, as well as blocks ads and other such things. These two working together makes you as anonymous as any program is going to be able to do. The other part of anonymity is just watching your tongue and not giving other people clues as to your location or identity.

    Me? I'm not quite that paranoid. I only occasionally have use for TOR/Privoxy, and browsing this forum isn't one of those occasions.

    I agree with all of your comments especially the part "It slows you way down". It's sooooo frustrating using those methods that I gave up on them!!! But, then again I have matured with age and have moved on from my more devious, bah nm...


    Merry Christmas

    Or, as some ISPs do, use the same IP for all users of a particular NOC, effectively anonymizing TCP/IP traffic. Inside WB's network, I've an unique IP but outside not.

    My IP will only show Wildblue Laredo NOC. The downside is I can get blackholed for others' abusive use.

    Where is the uninstaller? I do not see this listed in my add/remove programs or programs menu. Is this some kind of spyware I can no longer get rid of? If so I'm Pissed . I thought it was cool to start with but it seems to be slowing my laptop down. Please advise.

    Well you see, it has a feature in it that keeps track of how much you open carry. If you don't open carry enough, it slows down your computer until you open carry more. When you recruit other people to our cause, it allows your computer to run even faster.

    So, get busy!



    Anyhow, I haven't used this, so I don't entirely know what's going on.
