  2. the sad thing is that it really is not a laughing matter.

    to be honest it is not so much the act of stealing that bothers me about piracy.

    it is more the nonchalance if not sense of entitlement with which it is done.

    go out in the street and ask a car thief wether or not he has a right to he car he is ripping off. he will likely say n o. he will explain it by having to feed his family, his drug addiction or simply because it is easier than getting a real job.

    ask a software/audio/video pirate and the odds are good that you will hear something along the lines of:"i am entitled to this, the record companies/labels/studios are stealing from us. information should be free. noone should be forced to pay for xxx. (no, get your mind out of the gutter. not porn. just item x.)

    if you want free software, fine. go and grab yourself a linux or freebsd or whatever. but if you want software that people are getting paid to create, market and maintain then pony up the cash.

    sorry about getting into this rant. again. but this isn't communism, it is capitlism. there are rules you have to play by for the system to work. and there is no such thing as a free ride.

    as for the rate of theft roco quoted, i believe it. i worked in the fairly well observable computer department of a circuit city type store and we had everything of any value at all locked away or heavily outfitted with anti-theft devices. we still had a 1.5 percent rate of attrition for the department.

    :haha:
  3. it is a sad fact that there is little to no acknoledgement of wrongdoing when people buy pirated disks or download off the web.

    they say they are just hirting the evil riaa/mpaa/whomever suits them.

    if you break the copyright rules you are hurting the artists or programmers.

    i grant you that the record companies pocket most of the cash, but that is an issue the artists that sign the contracts that let them do so have to deal with. if the works are ripped off however, the artist/programmer gets no money at all. now, would you rather have a little money or none at all?

    at the local fleamarkets there are usually tables of cd's/dvd's with ripped albums/movies/screeners and usually several places that sell ripped games. sometiumes they will set up a table of disks right by the side of the road, advertising 1 dvd 5$, 5 for 20.

    the copsa ignore it.

    it being a federal crime, i have called the FBI on multiple occasions reporting the location of these stands.

    ik was told that there was nothing they could do. if they went out to arrest them the DA wouldn't want to prosecute them. they said the only thing that would do any good is if i could tip them off to one of the manufacturers of the copies. i was told to contact customs as they were setting up a taskforce o go after these people and they might have the manpower to do something.

    so i call into the fbi reporting a federal crime, all they would have o do is drive up and collect these guys and they say they can't do it because the DA is too lazy? wtf is up with that?

    the law should be the law, no matter what. if the record compoanies/movie studios/software houses screw the artists/workers/programmers, fine, they can organize themselves and do something like the writers strike. but don't use the "evil" riaa/mpaa/bsa as an excuse to commit a crime. that is so pathetically childish,

    no one likes snitches :uglystupid2:
  4. Yeah, you've got that running pretty good there KOL.

    :wink:

    By the way, granpa's cracked out over 2 megs D/L before.  :wink2: And over 800 U/L. Yeah, he's tweaked his pretty good.

    :evil6:

    But I"m in my basement, and thats on a antennae.

  11. I use wildblue as well... I have the least expensive connection they sell about 50.00 a month for the 512K package... I use a linksys router....

    The router has nothing to do with your satelite connection speeds for the satelite speed even at it's fastest D/L U/L speeds isn't as fast as what the router can handle. Wireless routers are capable of 54 which is much higher then the satelite is capable of sending.

    WildBlue uses a CONFIG file script.... do you have that script typed in? http://www.wpad.wildblue.com/wpad.dat

    They also take the satelite offline at regular intervals for several hours at a time for they are attempting to upgrade the satelite to handle 500k suscribers by January 08.

    Do you use these settings for your local area connection?

    Prefered DNS server 75.105.128.61

    Prefered WINS server 127.0.0.1

    The other thing that makes a difference is also the WINDOWS you run  on your system and since you didn't mention it..... for VISTA users... the WILDBLUE optimizer is NOT compatable and actually doesn't optimize anything...all it does is writes that script file to the proper location on your computer as well as add 3 icons to your desktop if you run a different version of windows like XP.

    Again I only use the 512K cheapest package available from WILDBLUE and here are my scores:

    As you see I have a great D/L speed, and it's the U/L speed that is SLOW.

    When you run your U/L - D/L test  on this site you need to have ANY optimizer disabled.... the other thing that also effects your test results is if you are running a virus scanner at the time of running the tests as well.

    Most ROUTERS have a 24 hour disconnect "LEASE" in them. To see what yours is at... in your browser window type in YOUR ISP address... .example: 192.168.2.0...... that should take you to the website  and allow you to set configurations there for your router. If you Don't know your ISP of your ROUTER.... click on START... then click on CONTROL PANEL, then click on NETWORK CONNECTIONS.. from there is should show you the LOCAL AREA CONNECTION

    ( default name you may possibly have named yours something else)

    CLICK on your LAC  and then click on SUPPORT tab to see and if you wish you can click DETAILS tab to see more information... the DETAIL tab will show you the "LEASE" information ( normally 24 hours) as well as the ISP,  SUBNET MASK, DEFAULT GATEWAY, PREFERED DNS, and the WINS information

    One other thing about using a ROUTER.... if you do not use the DHCP ENABLED then you have to MANUALLY SET up the configurations on EACH individual computer connected to the router so that they EACH show a separate ISP address.....

    Hope this helps....

    There is no way in hell............ :?
  12. Service should be on by tomorrow, parts of the upgrade should be completed today, I will find out tomorrow if I can have it or not.

    They sent out the modem, it is at home ready to go, filters and all.....

    I hope everything is fine, and if it is I am going to e-mail Hughesnets office and thank them for having retarded camel jockeys for tech support, and inform them that if it was not for them, I would never of found out I had DSL!

    LMAO.

    nice dude you've gotten farther than i ever did every time i ordered it they canceled it the next day... :icon_pale:
  13. Actually no offence should be taken. If I visit Mexico I expect to speak spanish. Same goes for france, greece. japan, china, etc...

    I believe in respect. For others as well as our selves.

      ANDWay back on topic, it really is time to ask for what you so desire. So go get them.  :evil:

    if you visit mexico ?  :haha: whats the point there is no one left there........... :grin:
