People still have unprotected networks? I live in a small, relatively backward town in Nowhere, Arizona, and I can drive all over town and find just a handful of unprotected networks. Everybody else has secured theirs. McDonald's and a couple cafes have theirs open for customers.

One of neighbors does. Every once in awhile the laptop I use in addition to the PC will try to connect to it when I reboot. Very week signal, though.

You mean I have to set a new wifi password every morning??? No thanks

Odds are, if I did this, my son would hack the router and start changing the password on ME!

Not really... If it doesn't have an interface like an iPod or an xBox, he wouldn't stand a chance.

There are at least a couple just within reach of the wireless card that my desktop is using to connect to the landlord's router upstairs, and that's not even a hugely powerful thing (tho better than the really shiatty one I used to have). It's always safest to bet on the side of laziness - that sort of thing won't go away until there's no such thing as a router without default security *and* said routers actually always work out of the box such that people don't feel compelled to disable stuff just to connect.
 
2012-07-30 02:44:06 PM
I hope you have the router locked up tight because the reset button isn't that hard to find.

I've had a boss that asked me if I knew what ASAP meant after he got bent out shape when something wasn't "done right now" when he said ASAP.

I responded "Yes. As Soon As Possible. I placed it into the first open slot in my schedule which is next week."

It seems like it would be a lot easier to just hit the factory reset button and change it again yourself.

Meaning of course that the kid could also use this method. Unfortunately kids don't actually have a factory reset button included. :(

3. walk the dog

this totally sucks. if you have a pet and you don't call it by its name and have to twist arms for people to give it some attention.... anyway it sucks. the dog should chew up the cords of the xbox and big screen tv.

A clever kid wanting to get out of his chores would just learn how to use ethernet cables.

drb9: MindStalker: You mean I have to set a new wifi password every morning??? No thanks

This.


It should take you no more than 30 seconds.

However, realistically it's a huge pain in the ass. Our house has two laptops, two wireless webcams, a fitbit scale, two phones, and probably a few devices I'm forgetting. Changing the wifi password takes 30 seconds but updating all the devices will take me at least an hour. Plus negative WAF.

I would suggest an alternative solution: lock your wifi down by MAC. Remove kid's MAC and add it back as needed. Con: it's almost trivial hard to clone a MAC if they think to do it.

If I really needed to do this I guess I would have one permanent key wifi network for devices. Kids would not get the network key. Then I'd have another for kids, so I could change the key daily without screwing up all my devices. That would probably work reasonably well, I guess.

4) Go online and fill out several surveys for tomorrow's password
 
2012-07-30 02:52:03 PM
That'd be funnier if the kids in most houses weren't responsible for setting up the wi-fi in the first place.

I've never understood why you need to make your bed. You're just going to unmake it every night anyway.

Rims.

We told our daughter, "keep your room clean every day for a year then we can talk about getting a pet." See, it shows discipline, willingness to do a chore even when you don't want to, that you'll do it every single day even if you'd rather be playing.

I feel bad for my brother's dog. At first he got runs and walks and obedience school, but now he just sort of hangs around my parents' house. Admittedly, he's 13 now, but he still thinks he's a puppy.

I am already tired of seeing this.

That said, dual band routers for the win. Put the kiddies on the 2.4ghz band and change the password at will.

/so yeah, just Sundays

Been married for 3 years, dated her for 2 before that. In 5 years the only time she's ever insisted on making the bed is when we put new sheets on (makes sense to me) or when we have company coming over (also kind of makes sense).

Looks like I married the right girl!

Yep, the term ASAP has taken on the meaning of NOW, when that's not what it means. When I actually mean "As soon as possible", I write it out in full because I don't want people to think I want it NOW.

Just remember, if you make your bed for your date, you're setting up unfair expectations for down the road. It's best for her to know you don't do so regularly now, than to have it come up in the divorce proceedings.

I've had to do this in my household. Just once. Was all it took.

If you put the effort into the front end the back end is pretty easy. I can even change it from my iPhone.

/ Funny thing is it was my wife who cracked first. "The kids are coming up out of the basement and they're running out of things to do"

Without their cellphones teenagers can't stay up to 4:32 a.m. having this conversation (one side only).

Yeah.

I'm not doing anything.

No way.

My parents would freak.

Sure, I'll sneak out of the hosue at 2:35 a.m. to go to a party at the house of some 51 year old prevert I've never heard of except on the web who throws drug and sex parties for teenagers and small children with poorly definied boundaries.

Who's the 51 year old creep? Your Mother?


I know this because I am a night owl and the guest room was next to my nephew.

Kids are stupid, grouchy and sleepy in class?

Making your bed is stupid. If you want to do things right, peel back the blankets, and expose the sheets to sunlight. UV does wonders on germs and whatnot.

Mom and dad,

Fark off. Double my allowance and I'll restore your lap top, tell you the name of the hidden file that contains an archive of your gross assplay porn and tell you where I've moved all the money in your "private" (snick!) bank account.

Hackingly yours,
Junior
