With me not being totally computer savvy, does this mean I will have trouble logging in at work or off a free wi-fi connection etc compared to my home connection?

You should be fine, you should be able to log in anywhere from any computer.

What the 'honeypot' (as it is called) is looking for is IP addresses that are categorized at suspicious. What these are are IP addresses where mass SPAM e-mails come from, or where bulk fake accounts are made on forums and websites for exploitations (usually with usernames like 'xxyhshdnxlls').

This register is crosschecked against 521,300,000,000 'honeypot' traps across the Internet on various websites, collecting IP data and processing it.

Most IP's used should not be flagged, but as a precaution, if it does then you should e-mail me.

There was some delay getting it started due to some technical issues.

The system was activated this morning.

Again, if there are any issues you are having please drop me a line.
