- You're right. I'm removing that category. I have a squidGuard article brewing. Gskuse 06:17, 13 February 2007 (UTC)
Judgmental IPv6 statement
"However,the lack of IPv6 support, even as of 2006 in any official versions of Squid is a glaring omission."---This is judgmental and out of place in an encyclopaedia. One might lower in the article say that "the lack of such-and-such has been viewed as a glaring omission"; for the time being I'll simply alter it to "However, even the most recent official version of Squid lacks IPv6 support." —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk • contribs) 00:05, 28 July 2006
- The development version (3.0) includes initial support for IPv6, I've edited accordingly. Gskuse 06:20, 8 February 2007 (UTC)
Souids are related to octopuses but squids have 10 tentacles not 8 like octopus. How many gigabytes can it store on its hard drive. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk • contribs) 17:26, 30 July 2006
Squid appears to only be limited by the bounds of the OS and file system used for cache_dir. It also supports multiple cache dirs in parallel (ie: you can have 2 cache dirs on separate disks and squid will spread the load between them). If anyone has information to the contrary, it can be added here. I operate with two 70 GB cache dirs. --184.108.40.206 (talk) 17:42, 5 December 2008 (UTC)
Squid can violate people's privacy. It has anonymising features etc. etc. which the admin can enable if that's what the admin wants. It also has logging features, which can be useful, and/or they can be use to track users' browsing habits - without the user knowing that any logging is happening, and without the user knowing what logging is possible. This can't be ignored in the article. Gronky 00:52, 14 August 2006 (UTC)
Fair use rationale for Image:Squid-cache logo.jpg
Image:Squid-cache logo.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.
Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.
If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.
