Speech Train + Proxy Server and all

Oops, I accidentally enable proxy in my apache server (need a proxy so I can cache the fedora rpm files when building fedora livecd for speech train machines) and it was public on the internet on port 80. Well, you can image what happened. Loads of people use it;). My router constantly went down for unknown reason. I figured out the problem by disconnecting ethernet cable from the router one by one.

Surprisingly, most proxied request was not porn;). It's Ads. Almost 60% are ads. Briefly looked through the log file, most connections were from Russian and Japan. A few porn sites were logged there.

Darn, had to disable the proxy. Sorry, folks.
