Yes, your coffee gets cold when you try to load up a single page with say
4 images (5 times squid gets loaded, at several minutes apiece? ;) )

Better off running squid standalone and either getting the ACL (Access
Control Lists) correct, or tell squid to ignore everything bar localhost
and run a wrappered http-gw from inetd. plug-gw is a bit more reliable
though. (see other suggestions on this list)
