You can be compelled to provide keys or passwords, because the keys and passwords themselves aren't evidence against you. They just unlock the evidence that already exists.

Solution: include a confession in your password itself. And then hope it was properly stored...

I picked the game back up last weekend and had a pretty identical experience. Quality drops and interesting legendaries that affect skills and game mechanics in fun, useful but not really game breaking ways. I also found far more crafting recipes dropping than I remember. I'm definitely excited to get into the expansion as soon as I can.

"I used a string of random characters as my SSID to reduce the risk of collisions."

I don't get it. What does your SSID have to do with driving?

What driving? He just wants to avoid huge ships.

I assumed he wanted to avoid the other bits that were clogging the tubes.

Your Wifi issues seem to me to be related more to your AP than the devices themselves.

I've had a similar wifi issue with my phone (Nexus S) maintaining a connection to a home network running one of those ISP provided all-in-one router/modems. The solution was to turn off "Avoid Poor Connections" in Settings > Wi-Fi> Advanced.

I'm in the US, I only have a cell phone, and my number is also registered on the Do Not Call list. I've gotten 2 in the past month from numbers in Washington state. Legality doesn't seem to stop them. Though it's hard to complain since there's never anyone on the other end by the time I answer.

I've only played through the intro, a bandit camp, and a cave full of bandits, but I definitely agree, so far magic is way more fun than Oblivion. Setting people on fire, or watching lightning arc across their skin is way more satisfying than almost anything in Oblivion. Additionally, more than once, when I've run across multiple enemies, I've shot some fire at them with my left hand, realized I should try to use my sword to level that too, but I kill them with fire before they even make it to me. That's how a mage should play! I also like the change to a constant stream of magic firing from my hands, since now I don't have to waste half of my magicka when my Big Powerful Spell misses.

The clash of ideas is the sound of freedom.
