Wonder how they catch the peeps on the virgin network with cloned modems.....
That would be a kick in the Teeth as the network works on the Mac address of the modem which is linked to your bill...
When the Modem chats to server the server check if access is allowed. if allowed then you get a IP address..
All well and dandy..
How ever if your Mac has been cloned and being used else where then u r buggered!!.. (if they are filesharing)
Kind of reminds me of the Tv Licence people who assume every one in the uk has a tv and you have to prove you dont.....
Bit like saying every one with a net connection must file share and you ahve to prove you dont....
Oh the joys of uk law eh lol
Does this mean I can grab a few mates around with a few beers like we used to when the Mayday riots happened?
Great viewing on Sky and when the sky cam bloke wa getting beat up you could switch to teh BBC filming the skycam guy being beat. and vice versa...
All this was before all this digital TV multiangle rubbish.
All we need is Delboy in his car to turn up wack the horn and seperate the protestors from the police.!
Only use IE if i realy have to (Piss poor coded sites)
Funny part is most of the Computer repairs i do these days involve removing al the crap out of them (Yes i know we was thinking about windows here)
And why are people so happy to install about 6 toolbars on there browser??
But keeps me busy i suppose lol....
Now time to go andsmirk at me Unbunto box (and teh kids stupid box which is stuck in 800x600)
Wonder if they will fix that bug with the power saver thingy on me lap top.
When running on battery the screen is dimly lit to save batt power however when I used to connect the mains to it when the thing had vista onit the screen would light up properlty.
even in the power savings menu i ave tried to adjust teh brightness and it just laughs at me.
How ever I found if i restart with main power in it works lol.
And ye i have sent feedback to Microsoft!!
Now I am wondering if we will all have have to buy new Freeview boxes?? Or is the Frequency already picked up by the boxes... Or certain makes/models might need replacing.
Ahh well we shall see... Wonder if they will send out Channel 5 stlye men who used to come and retune your video player before channel 5 went live.
So if MS are not allowed to ship any broswer with windows BUT you need to go online to get a browser erm how the hell you sodding ment to do it (And dont say go round a mates house!!)
Reminds me of that stupid argument I had with Pace when I had my 56k Dial up modem.
I had damaged the drivers disk so I rang em up to have a new one sent. But they was insistant I go online and download the driver. But I could not get online to get the driver as i needed the driver to get on line lol took me 30 mins for the woman at the other end of the fone to click on. and yes this was back in 1997/8
