This in the gui text box 

and 

[[email protected] ~]# tail /var/log/squid/squid.out

but where would I set the visible hostname?

There is no single government agency that views sustainability through a broad 
lens, taking into account the values of the people affected by government

engine is deficient if it is incapable of taking into account social values.

Columbia,2007
