I live on a hill, overlooking Wellington city, NZ.
I get about 15 pages of wifi networks on a good day from my window, and about 1/10 are still insecure.
Another 1/10 or so still use WEP which amounts to the same thing.
Needless to say I never have to worry about going over my internet limit each month. Plenty of free idiots to leach off.
If you still don't see the risks of leaving your networks open to the world then you deserve what you get.
Lived on the West Coast in NZ for a while - it was either 56k or satellite. Both were useless - rains so much there the satellite internet got rain fade like a TV does, lol, and when it did work the lag was so bad it ended up being no faster than a modem anyway for many web pages.
How can they possibly be trying to justify that what they did was ok?
and the LAME excuse about the insurance not paid? why couldn't they just as him when he got to school the next day? It is just a blatent invasion of privacy.
and FYI A/C you are not meant to close your laptop lid while it is running as the keyboard is where much of the heat is dispersed.
Until last year I worked for a New Zealand SOE (which will remain nameless)
IE5 ONLY. Perhaps they have IE6 by now
The problem with anything which ends in .govt is that no one has the balls to take up the responsibility to make any changes, so things stay the same for far longer than anyone working for a private company would ever realise.
