Google as proxy

Google hacks contained entry for using Google as proxy -- basically you translate a page from english to english -- and, viola. Google servers become the gobetween). Unfortunately, this no longer works -- but, fortunately, if you translate from es|en you get the same effect. Note: This does NOT hide your ip address. It simply allows you to go to another server to get out from behind a firewall (if you need to).

Chances are -- if you have a linksys or other box between your computer and the internet your real IP address is hidden anyway, helping to prevent hackers from directly attacking your computer. It does this be creating a bank of IP addresses that are one hop away from your computer. I've changed the translated link so that it will hide that IP address. This, hopefully, prevents a site from tracking your pseudo-unique-IP's return and using it against you.

This reference to Anonymouse.org should hide your ip. :) EXAMPLE: http://www.google.com/translate?langpair=es|en&u=www.anonymouse.org Try it & then try your real IP generated here... http://www.arin.net/whois/
