    My girlfriend was using my Treo the other day and yelled at me for visiting pornographic sites. She discovered my internet travels when she was typing in a website and auto-type filled in the rest. I know that I can clear this up by pushing the "Clear" button under "Advanced Preferences". However, I noticed that even if you do this, you can still go to previous sites visited by simply pushing the back button.

    What is the best way to totally wipe away sites that I've previously visited?

    Well, chalk one up for Handspring for making sure that you can perform one handed navigation using Blazer with the Treo.

    Just do everybody a favor. Get one of those screen guards for yourself.

    And don't let your girlfriend/wife/etc use your computer or PDA. Anything "prviate" ends up not being that. Also, use secuirty to hide any records that you don't want seen.

    On another front, honesty is the best policy, so consider this a test of your relationship....if your girlfriend has a problem with you viewing "porn" (a very broad term, referring to anything from Maxim to Hustler), then tell her you will do it all in the open with her. If she can't handle it, move on, because it's an indicator of future problems.

    If she can handle it, she understands that "boy will be boys", and has enough self confidence in herself, and is likely a keeper.

    I allways wondered about that plastic protective window. Yup now I know all 101 uses. Lol. But I understand your trouble. I just don't let my woman touch my treo.

    So ANYway - to answer the original question - heh heh

    In prefs, or something like that, in Blazer, there's a 'clear cache' button. Click that, and you should be good to go..and go...and...

    Ha! That is really funny. The same **** has happened to me, but on my computer. I love my girlfriend very much but she really wants to believe that I could never look at another woman again. I swear women (ok some) live in a fantasy world. Anyway man, I tell her, "my computer is private just like your journal. I don't snoop through that, so don't look through my computer. If you do and you are offended, well that's what you get honey. It seemed to work and maybe busting her fantasy world up some is a good thing.

    Okay how has nobody mentioned that looking at porn (irrespective other considerations) is just silly on a freakin' 160 x 160 screen...

    Are there "mobile" porn sites? Given that all technology seems to driven by porn I'm guessing there must be; but seriously what can you see 160 x 160?

    Indeed the low res and color make it difficult. Basically you just have look for anything sorta flesh colored and round.

    Be careful though. Why just the other day I thought I was onto some hot porn when it turned out I was just looking at a big goiter!

    My question has still not been answered. Even when you push the "Clear Cache" button, my girlfriend can still see the smut sites I've visited by simply pushing the Back Arrow button. Now she knows that I've been to www.bigfatmamas.com and www.funwithdonkeys.com.

    Help!!

    How about setting your cache size to "0"
    and clear cookies?

    Are the mobile there mobile versions of those? Like:

    http://mobile.bigfatmamas.com and http://wap.funwithdonkeys.com

    If not I feel the porn industry is insensitive to the needs of the mobile user.

    P.S. I tried few things, even reset but couldn't get Blazer to "forget" past web sites. Sorry

    I was hoping that if I cleaned my cache and cleared my cookies that the "Back button" would not retrieve previous sites. Unfortunately, I was able to pull up www.IraqGirlsGoneWild.com. I'm screwed if my girlfriend see this.

    Somebody have a better solution???

    Oh is that the one where they get drunk and show you their.... ankles? And isn't it more likely that you're not screwed, so to speak.

    You've been a good sport so far (despite bringing this down on yourself), so here's a suggestion:

    Have you tried deleteing the cache, not through Blazer, but by going to Delete in the Applications Menu and choosing "Blazer Cache." Don't know if that will work, just a thought.

    Matthew,

    I don't know how to get to the Applications Menu? Can you please walk me through this? I'd give you my hand, but it's a little sticky now...

    Thanks!

    Just go to the home menu by pressing cmd (the blue key) + :menu: then hit :menu: + d

    It's the same way you delete applications.

    Matthew,

    I deleted my Blazer Cache per your instructions -- and I can STILL go back to the farm animal links. Oh well. I guess if I want to keep my girlfriend, I have to find another way to view my favorite sites.

    As much as various, um..., parts get used, that wouldn't be only thing insensitive in the porn industry...

    I've just got to say thanks to Mister Treo Man for starting this thread, so giving us all (or is it just me) a forum for this sophmoric humor.

    Best,

    I don't condone your viewing preferences, but if you use Filez (a program) you can delete the file that holds all the old URLs. I forget what the name of the file is, but it can be done.
