1. Download and install the "Proxomitron" web-filtering proxy.
(This program is primarily intended to block adverts, pop-up scripts, etc.. Luckily, here at OT.com we don't have such annoyances, so in the guide below I've recommended that these options are not needed.)
2. Set the program up as follows:
(To use web filtering only.)
(Deactivate all the default filters - they could potentially cause problems with other sites if you leave them active.)
Click on "New" to create a new filter:
Copy and paste the following text into the "Matching Expression" box:
<table border="0" cellpadding="1" cellspacing="0" width="97%">*<b>DanielB</b>[br]*<img src="i/dominant/trans.gif" border="0" height="2" width="1">[br]
:: EDIT - Damn forum software. You need to manually change the square brackets in the two instances of [br] above to HTML-style braces < >.
leave the "Replacement Text" blank.
Ensure this new filter is active, and press OK.
3. Set your browser to use a proxy server for HTTP; use the address "localhost" and port "8080".
(Should work equally as well with IE or Firefox).
4. Make sure Proxomitron is running, and continue to browse the forum. If everything is working, you should find your enjoyment of the forum is substantially enhanced. Please post your testimonials below...
