I returned this afternoon from a much needed vacation. I went to the Jersey shore to meet up with my brothers, an uncle and some cousins. We had a really nice extended weekend of eating, playing cards, eating, crabbing, and eating.
Interestingly enough we had Internet access via several access points that lacked security. This may seem like a good idea, after all we were neighbors, but as a rule you should protect your bandwidth. Not only because of the security of your Internet traffic, but also because people can use your account to do things they wouldn’t want traced back to them. Things like downloading pirated movies, or sending spam could have your Internet provider asking questions or suspending your service.
I was happy to have access for the few times it came in handy, so thanks neighbors.
