Wanted to say thanks to all of you and really appreciate the hard work.

love the following:
3. squid guard was so good (but had to switch off transparent proxy in squid as it was blocking attachments in hotmail, would love some help on this one please, worked fine with gmail though)
4. got snort working (manually at first by following this thread http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,15464.msg81197.html#msg81197 next time it updated smoothly)
5. ran a shields up by grc http://www.grc.com/intro.htm and had never seen all green passed in the past
