I seem to have hit a nerve with dbb.

ftr I wasn't having a go, although I see how you may think so. Just saying that of the pubs that I've been to I've never seen people doing work except for people who actually work there. So it's unique/unusual to me and I'll probably go 'ooooh'/'aaaah' like a kid at a zoo. Plus I never knew that at least Sydney pubs have free wifi.

Pubs that have pokies or cater to league supporters - was that supposed to be an insult? Sydney people generally don't give a fuck if there are pokies unlike people from other States.

How the hell did this turn into a 'class envy' thing?

A pleasure, it came to mind out of the blue the other day, used to play this on 2ser... 19 years ago.

On bar/pub wifi I remember having some difficulty finding an Internet cafe in new York while every second place had free wifi available, I don't find it unusual to see this sort of use, much like I don't find it unusual to see someone reading a paper or a book in a pub.

actually untappd is better done on a smartphone, so the geolocation works properly.

sure, it can determine position by the Wifi access point ... but pretty sure it doesn't have an actual GPS chip

let me google that for me ...

http://www.dell.com/au/business/p/latitude-e6530/pd

It's got one of these : Dell Wireless™ 5560 Single-mode HSPA Mini Card with A-GPS

Does that mean it knows my position without resorting to upstream wifi access point?

edit : regardless, the untappd web page doesn't allow location checkins, only the android/iPhone app
does. I guess I could write a little curl script which calls the API directly and spoofs location data, but
what's the point?

Please elaborate how. I'm staying at some shitty caravan park (in the cabins) for work and it's $6/h on the wifi. I've used up my monthly data so I've got two days where I'm not sure wtf I'm gonna do with myself.

1) hire a VPN server or VPS, or set up your own VPN server on a computer at home you leave turned on
2) set it to take VPN connections on port 53
3) ????
4) unethically save money at some other ****'s expense

Work laptop is grinding to a halt any time I click the mouse more than once a day. Fucking slow computers.

In other news, just logged into a network to see why 'things are just a little quirky...'

All in the same subnet - 4 DHCP servers (with different scope options), 3 DNS servers (all using each other for forwarders), and all kinds of group policies later.... Back away, not today, Windows lady.

It's not surprising - the easiest way to compromise security is via people - that's why those Indian scammers keep ringing, because they know it works.

I've (professionally) rang up internal IT staff in some of the companies our software runs in, explained who I was, and with no qualms they've given away the root password over the phone. I've then had to say "I don't want the root password, I don't want to know it, and you should go and change it" ... when all I wanted was limited shell access and for them to email me (in at least two broken up emails to my corporate account) access details.
