Everyone talking about their 20mbps connections makes me sad, US ISP's gouge so bad, I'm lucky to see 1.1mbps and that's only when steam is downloading.

The ironic thing is that I am often forced to use ANSI C and basically simulate OO design principles without proper language support. It's a twisted world.
Haha that reminds me off this commercial (it's in dutch) with an old guy ranting about how everything was better in the past: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWCj-c0K06Q . Doing the same here tho trying to optimize where possible even if it means breaking a pattern a bit. The problem for me is mostly projects get to massive to do them without MVC, OO and all. But the memory of the good old days makes it all ok even at my age .

"15.6 GB remaining"

Is it downloading the entire client?

edit: as opposed to patching the WotLK client. The beta install folder is already 15 GB.

Now, why don't you just set those innernets down over there, and back away... Slowly.

Used wardrive from work to home once. In the city my job is in on the route with the bus say 15 minutes it picked up 500 networks, on the train through mostly farm lands and a few smaller towns for 40 minutes it picked up another 500. On my bicycle in my own city it picked up 1000 networks for a 20 min ride. Thats 2000 networks with SSID broadcast on just on my route from work to home. 1 in 3 networks didn't even use WEP not the mention WPA(2). So thats 666 networks unprotected and even more if you count WEP as unprotected might be over 900. So I doub't you have a hard time finding one in any city .

Unprotected networks is unfortuntally very common. Not a lot of people understand that they need to set it up. Or even care to thinking that nothing bad can happen.

Someone near me has an unlocked network. See it on my iPhone so chances are it's my next door neighbor.

A friend of mine moved a while back and use someone elses wireless network to get email and browse the net for a few days until he got his internet hooked up.

There's a school across the road from where I live that has an unlocked wifi network, Used it a couple times when my net gets capped.
They don't know the difference

I'd remember two things when it comes to using unsecure networks. First, the legality of it is questionable. Second, more importantly, any data sent over it can be seen by others. Logging into any site without HTTPS would definitely be an issue, IMHO. It wouldn't be common but it could even be a honeypot.

I always use a VPN when connecting to "public/unprotected" hotspots.

Haha that reminds me when I was at some friend some time some where and they had a open network close by just in range of my laptop. It was unprotected so figured could use it to do some things. (Used SSH as a SOCKS5 proxy for those wondering.) At some point someone asked me if I could see the data transfered over the network so I started wireshark. We could read his msn chats so at some point we knew who he was. A few mins later the conversation was over and he went to a **** site. Before we know it we where watching him browse to the gay section and fire up a stream. Now the guy has a girl for a few years and information like this could potentiality destroy his reputation. We never did something with this information cause it isn't our place to tell her and we might be even interpret this bit of information completely wrong. If this action was legal or not (doubt it since we went very fast very deep into his privacy) it shows the dangers of not securing your connection properly.
