Proxomitron Filterset Changes

So, what's changed?
- Well, first and foremost, I've got a full time job, and since I got it the update frequency has gone down. It just takes time I don't really have to muck about with filters, upload them etc.
- The base filterset just is breaking on many many sites. The needed web expertise and prox expertise to fix that is beyond me. It also seems to be beyond Grypen (great guy, but I never got the feeling he was able to do more than I was with amassing others filters and simple edits). JD5000 has left prox filter writing.
- I broke down and decided to try the other major filterset - Sidki. And it just works for lots of sites. I haven't fully customized it yet (want to allow redirects), but flash toggle works much better, Google is working without the timeouts for thumbnails etc.
- My file host, streamload went to crap when they became MediaMax, and I stopped paying. Account closed, so no access to the files anyway.
So, I'm now recommending Sidki's set. He has a great site that explains the install, hosts the files etc.

Now, it is Firefox focused, but works pretty well in Opera, and the castlecops forum is good for getting help. I'll still be using it, and can provide some assistance, though not necessarily as much as before.
Still waiting for a OSS prox replacement with these sorts of filtersets (privoxy doesn't seem to really do it).
