Re: [squid-users] what to block from the proxy to speed up?

I'm a little unclear on your goals - you wish to speed up your net
access by blocking things?

A couple of things to think about:
  * is your line congested ?
  * are DNS lookups working correctly?
  * have you looked at things like ACK prioritisation on your
router/firewall ?

IF you want to continue on your current course, have a look at adzap -
replaces many of the common banners/ads with blank images served off
your local LAN. Quick simple and easy to implement.
