Seattle II mobo up for grabs We will give a prize of a brand new Intel Seattle II motherboard to the best answer of the following question: Do proxy servers disguise users hiding behind them? As runner-up prizes, we will give 25 Register badges -- prized items for the cognoscenti -- to the best runners-up. Here are the groundrules.

Is it possible for an independent auditor to come up with these figures? The email address is Mike Magee ®
