Here are some interesting sites that will show you information about 
your net connection: A commercial site. Click on the 
"Test My Shields" and then the "Probe My Ports" buttons. How strong is your browser's encryption? If you have Javascript enabled, you can get info 
about your screen size, etc...

And of course, my own office's site: . Just 
click on the "You" link.

If anyone knows of any others, I would appreciate getting the URL. 
Thanks, Michael
