Hey all,

I've been a happy user of Squid for the past 10 years or so, and I'd
like to take a second to thank everyone who has worked so hard to make
such a great piece of software! I'd like to give back to the Squid
community, but unfortunately I'm not much of a C hacker. However, I'm
hoping I can still help.

I've just spent a few days getting my school's Squid install up to

trying to build a similar system, so I'm posting so it will hit the

Feel free to adapt, add to the wiki, or mirror if you find it useful.
Also, any corrections are welcome. ;-)

Thanks again for all your efforts!
