I'll probably regret saying this but have you tried streaming it in HD via Internet Explorer?

The admins and super mods are logging your location via your IP address as we speak.

No doubt they'll be a suspicous looking van outside your house soon, trying to log onto your WiFi network with the details you've let slip.

I am a Batman fanatic, so "The Batman" animated show from a few years back gave me the perfect name:

Batwave

Hokey when I first heard it on the show, but when I went wireless it made perfect sense.

My wireless is set to "Hidden"... it does not broadcast so unless you know it's there you can't even see it.

Who am I hiding it from... 80 or so teeny booper university students with assorted laptops and hacker aspirations in the apartment building next door...

Needless to say, my passphrase --which I won't reveal-- is a work of art!

Good one....

I got a real kick out of one I set up last year...

The SSID is "Drips Plumbing"
The Workgroup is "Waterspout"
The computers are named "Dip", "Dap", "Dobble" and "Dirp"

Being a Mad magazine fan from way back I nearly died laughing when I saw their list.

Hi all, thought this is the best place to ask... Is there a way to plug my computer into my LAN and have access to my home network but avoid using its internet access altogether? So that I can use a separate wireless network for internet?
