no internet at parents house :(

i'm home for the thanksgiving holiday week. And my parents forgot to tell me they got rid of the internet cause they never used it. So i'm running around the house room to room trying to find a neighbors wifi that isnt password protected. The only one that i can detect i barely get one bar. GRRRRRs curse anti technology parents.

Looks like its either that or find a store or something that has wifi.

The 'net is definitely addicting, isn't it?

You could consider a cellular aircard with which you could have internet access almost everywhere. I've had one from Verizon for about 2 years now. The drawback is that it costs $60/month for the service. I mostly use it when I travel in my RV but it comes in handy as a backup when my main ISP at home goes down.

Good excuse for spending the weekend in some nice local "drinking Hostelry" - Most decent ones usually have some sort of Free Wifi service - at least they do here.

The ideal time to spend time with your parents and appreciate having somewhere and someone to spend the holidays with, the Internet will still be there when you get back to your own place.

I've got a blackberry and the Verizon VZ access application which allows me to use my phone as a modem for my computer. Work pays for the phone and I get something like 5GB a month in bandwidth...so I use this when I have no other options.

it certainly is, but after any length of 'detoxing' you start to wonder what the big deal was and suddenly find the real world is infinitely more interesting again.

...And then you get the net back and swear you'll never go without it again

...and I thought it was bad having to use my parents computer to use internet...but to plain not have net would suck!

Sounds like it's time to cozy-up to the neighbors and try to barrow their WiFi

I was just thinking about my parents
My dad was born in 1913 so he would have been 101 last month. My mom was born in 1914 and she would be 100 next month. Just wondering what they would be thinking about what is going on these days since they died quite a while ago. Anyone care to share?

Parents act as if they own my new computer
Hey there. I am Sean, I just had a new computer delivered yesterday. My situation deals with my overprotective parents who I still live with. I want to remove the preinstalled commercial virus scan trial Norton but I can't because they tell me. I can but what am I going to say that they won't jump...

Why do my parents like Norton so much?
I used to use it, now I've switched to other AV software. I felt it was slowing my computer down a lot. My parents used to use it too, and I convinced them to try another antivirus, and they also agreed that it affected their pc's performance. What do you think is so great about it; it seems to be...

Parents are so cute!
Hi everyone. Anybody else here have a mom and dad that are, well, shall we say, just "not into" computers as much as the rest of us, so that when an ad for Windows 7 is shown on TV, they will literally ask, "So what IS Windows 7 anyways?" :D Hehehe. I love my parents dearly. But I think...
