I note my firewall alerts have gotten much shorter since I told my PC to 
not acknowledge, send or receive anything whatsoever from the Asia Pacific 
range of IP numbers, i.e., 61.0.0.0 - 61.255.255.255.  Also ruled out was 
Comcast Cable Wireless in the 67.160.0.0 - 67.174.255.255 range and Qwest 
in the 67.0.0.0 - 67.7.255.255 range.  No discernible negative side effects 
on connectivity or email from locking them out so far.  I might have 
something here.  I am thinking of adding RR to the list.  As this is a 
standalone PC I am still debating the wisdom of fully closing the ports at 
1434, 901, and 17300 as was done to 135 and 445.  What do you all think?
