For some reason, firefox does not use the stunnel but tries to connect
coolaj86.com directly.  It looks as if the entry in the host file is
not effective.  (You might check who replies to 'ping coolaj86.com'.)

of names.  Some people from East Asia swap their names if they write
them using the Latin script, others don't, so I didn't know how you
want to be called.
