I can sure tell Iâ€™m back home. Woke up with a splitting headache this morning. Sat around until 1100 before taking my shower. Still havenâ€™t eaten breakfast and itâ€™s almost noon. Watching â€œ2010â€. Overcast and cool outside. Slightly breezy.
Yep. Iâ€™m definitely home.
Got a â€œ[AB-M27032184X] Notification of Acceptable Use Policy Violation of Multiple DMCA Infringementsâ€ from Century Link. Seems someone has tried to download â€œThe Gangster Squadâ€ (Whatever the Hell that is), â€œFamily Treeâ€ (which can be explained since SWMBO bought the program but we had a half dozen failed downloads to her computer but it worked just fine on mine), â€œOnce Upon A Timeâ€ (Which I MAY be guilty of since I download the shows we like to watch since we live in a NO TV ZONE (thanks digital tv and the NO-Cable Company)), â€œThe Callâ€ (whatever the Hell that is) & â€œStar Trek-Into Darknessâ€ (which I would never download cause usually illegal copies of movies are crappy (Iâ€™ve seen a few) and Iâ€™d rather wait for the DVD). I Do Not Download Movies or Music! Never!
Half of these violations occurred while SWMBO and I were â€œon vacationâ€ and in different states; but, of course, no one that was here (our Son & the Tenants) will fess up to downloading anything. It HAD to be someone tapping into our internet.
So I spent my first full day at home locking down our wireless network. Had to look up all the MAC addresses of our devices and enter those in the â€œallowedâ€ list; so hopefully no one just driving by can access our wireless now. But, I really wouldnâ€™t put it past our neighbors since theyâ€™ve done it before.
I donâ€™t feel that downloading shows that have been broadcast is any different than â€œtapingâ€ those shows and watching them later. Of course, theyâ€™re usually HD and have no commercials; but Iâ€™d be â€œfast forwardingâ€ through commercials anyway. Hate the damned things!
So weâ€™ll see what we shall see. Hopefully the problem is taken care of.
Not much else going on around here. About to get off my fat lazy old ass and go down and water the garden. SWMBO is making dinner tonight so I donâ€™t have to worry about that. Still need to start the laundry and get the kitchen cleaned up.
After the movie. Probably.
