But that does not work when embedding a video, the video still starts at the beginning.

Is the program "Hide my ass" only available with a paid subscription?

And is this the best/only program to use to block/change my IP address, without circumventing my K9 filter?

What's the easiest way to get a MS Office license off of a dead computer?
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Not sure... I just bought a new desktop so I'm going to plug in the hard drive and see if it can read it.

If you can read the hard drive (even not to boot it) you can probably get the key out with ProduKey from Nirsoft http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/product_cd_key_viewer.html

If you are booting from a different hard drive change the source in ProduKey to the Windows directory from this plugged in hard drive.
