    Hiya

    I know that Realplayer like to Dial Out when you're not using it, but I have just read that version 7 has Comet Cursor as a plugin. Apparently, this is what I have found:

    Comet Cursor is offered as a plug-in from RealNetworks. You do have the option of not installing it, but you are not warned about remote server contact if you do. It will NOT be installed automatically

    I read that here:

    Great site for people to keep an eye out for. I'll let you know if anything else comes up about it.

    Regards
