    i think its better for them if they dont.
    I guess this was specific to me.

    May I ask, why? I can guess plenty of things, but I want to know which reasons they are in particular.

    My family thinks it's sad that I use TSR.
    So they have no need to see my internet history. As they already think so low of me.

    I was harshly criticised for even using incognito, though I'll clarify not by my father.

    If people want to actually find out, nothing's stopping them, and I'd say fair play.
    Try using another browser instead, that's not easily located on your desktop
    Or a really obscure browser like Opera

    You can even put the file in a directory that's under another account user that's not yours (I had parents who never let me game on my PC. Looking back, I haven't a clue why, but oh well)

    Dude you're 17, if you were beating your meat, just tell them. They might be sad at first but they'll understand, specially your pops

    Oh, oops. I thought you meant they shouldn't find out what I'm doing, not what you're doing, you making judgement by some of the posts I've made.

    I remember disagreeing with you in the past, but I'm sure you're not mentally challenged. :grin:

    I once let my 14-year old daughter use the internet. That evening, just before bedtime, she asked me, "Why do young girls become glamour models, Mommy?"

    Needless to say, I was alarmed at this question - what had she been reading (or worse, looking) on the internet? Was she being influenced by any disgusting online perverts?

    Maintaining my composure, I answered: "Because they're shallow people who think of things in the short term only. Sure, the pay may be good for someone who is young, but they will be sucked into a life of drugs, prostitution, and an addiction to going for plastic surgery, all so that they can continue living that 'glamorous' lifestyle. By the time they're in their forties they'll be single with three pesky kids (divorced if they were lucky), overtanned, and with a lumpy face from all those botched procedures. Stay in school and go to uni, and you'll be in a much better place at that age"

    The look on my precocious teenage daughter's face reassured me. She understood the value of intelligence and hard work. I had managed to divert my daughter's life away from a path of self-destruction and eternal self-loathing. I was a good mother.

    Without a hint of malice, my daughter then asked, "Mummy, were you once a glamour model?"

    Needless to say, she was banned from using the internet. I wished that thing never came out of my reproductive organs.

    I'm 21... quite frankly they don't even need to know what I'm doing day to day despite living with them.

    Imagine deferring every single action to your parents in day to day life... you'd hit a wall constantly.
