Well, it's official...Cox@Home (my cable modem provider) sucks. They have finally gone and filtered port 80 in order to prevent people from running personal web servers...which means that if you're reading this you've connected on an alternate port and probably already realize this.

The catalyst for this drastic measure was probably the Code Red virus that still plagues the net and infects windows users who either don't know how to download security patches or didn't even know they were running a web server in the first place.

I completely disagree with @Home's policy here and I think other steps should have been taken. Oh well, the world is full of money-obsessed corporations who don't care about ideals...
