I have been selected SETI@Home user of the day [link removed]. I think it could have something to do with my profile’s [link removed] picture involving Santa. Coincidence? The world may never know.
I have also been told that the person mentioned in the last couple of news updates may be using an "older" version of AdShield. Unfortunately, due to the Holiday season, they have not been able to get any answer from technical support as to the issues outlined below. If it does turn out that the older version is flawed and the latest does conform to the robots.txt standard, I will update the news.
