Maybe a teenager with a very lenient and accommodating parent. I know one family that can barely pay rent, and they just bought a $2000+ computer so the kid can record his xbox gaming action and put the videos up on youtube. His old computer was doing it, but was 'too slow' for the kid's liking.

Oh, excuse me then. I thought you were simply too stupid to understand common hardware. You claim you do have that basic level of intelligence. You simply lack all ability to actually convey your knowledge to others.

No fucking shit, Sherlock. But that has nothing to do with WiFi Sense. Ever hear of internet connection sharing and ad-hoc networking? That's how WiFi Sense works, stupid little shit.

I just read the explanation on , and it doesn't sound like internet connection sharing at all. It sounds like credentials are being sent to people so they can join a network without the consent or agreement of the network owner/administrator.

Back to the original post I replied to;


If you're asking this question, you shouldn't be trying to admin a corporate network.

At the very least (assuming that AC is you), you either are too stupid to understand the meaning of the post you replied to, or, as stated above, you are too stupid to make a coherent argument.

From prior experience, anyone who uses *facepalm* as their argument usually falls into the second category.

Again, shove that ignorant attitude up your ass. I'm talking about the devices that are 'router' and 'wireless access point' all in one unit. Like the one most home users have, and most small businesses have. Do you think I have a separate router, firewall, switch, and WAP all sitting next to my cable modem?

If you can't figure out references to basic standard hardware, turn off the 'box' that has 'blinking lights' on it before you contaminate us with more drivel. But of course, first pick up your coffee and make the 'cup holder' slide back into the 'box', so it doesn't get hurt.

Despite all that, once Castro came to power, he used the US embargo as an eternal excuse to keep the country just as poor as it was beforehand.

I'll expand on what Digi pointed out - the entire world can trade with Cuba, except one country, and Cuba can't figure out how to have a good economy. It isn't the embargo one one single country that is hurting them, as even Raúl Castro admitted a few years ago.

If you don't get the AC's and MM's point, you can shove that facepalm up your ass.

The person running the router doesn't always have control of the devices connecting to the router. Even if that person was able to turn off the email-secret-password-to-the-world feature while the device is in the office, there is no way to ensure it doesn't get re-enabled two hours later.

I switched to Google because they had a very simple front page. No massive background image, not covered in ads and news stories, no streaming text across the top. Just the Google name, and various doodles for special days. When on dialup or dsl, that matters a lot.

Now, even though I have a high speed internet connection, I still use them for the same feature. It isn't a speed issue anymore, just the fact that when I want to do a search, I don't want anything but the text box on the screen.

For this article, I just did a search on Google, Duckduckgo, and Bing, and all three returned very similar results for "best hairdresser in dallas".
