On going to the page a warning comes up for me Security warning: You have no reverse DNS configured on your network connection. Your IP address is 121.215.xxx.xxx (I put in the X s)then "unidentified IP address" when clicking on the download? Strange it already told me my Ip address? Anyone else had this happen? I am using a DLINK DSL G604T router which does not seem to mention any reverse DNS in its settings!

Yes, I also get the "Security warning: You have no reverse DNS configured on your network connection. Your IP address is 199.64.72.252"

I think that PV wants to keep undesirables off his web site. Unfortunately that includes us.

You two are lucky. I get a HUGE "warning" about phorm because my place of work happens to use BT as their ISP... Which on this 1280x1024 screen still fills most of it:

Doesn't exactly encourage me to bother venturing into the rest of the site if I have to scroll down nearly a full screen before I can actually see any content...

Paul boggles me sometimes. wtf does he care if somebody has no rDNS? What possible reason does he have?

I can't think of any reason. I also can't think of any reason it needs to be a "security warning".. You're no more or less secure if you've got rDNS or not. Perhaps PV put his paranoia hat on a little to tightly...
