See? I knew we'd get found out! Where's my tinfoil hat?
The good news is that you got better than just satellite TV. You now have access to Netflix and YouTube, Pandora and (coming soon!) Blockbuster, all guilt free - AND stuff you'll watch. Even the wife will find something she likes. We couldn't provide the karma and not make it right with the Mrs.
Thanks for the post.
A while back, just for fun I decided to try to hack satellite TV. Called a college buddy in Mexico for advice and ended up with a $100 phone bill. Spent my good money on a bunch of networking hardware. Wired a hidden PC from my basement to my TV. Spent all my time learning how to program assembly language on an Intel chip smart card. Wife got pissed off that I was spending too much time doing this. Needless to say, never watched any TV, but that wasn't the point. A little later, "Dave" took the satellite down. Well, what should I expect for "free"?
Then I bought an expensive Samsung Blueray. Didn't know I needed one, but later found out I needed an expensive Samsung wireless access point and shelled out more money. Spending about the same amount of time as I did trying to hack Dave.
Is this Samsung's sense of cruel karma?
