    Do you use a VPN?

    If so, with who, and how much does it cost you? Does it ever cause you trouble you wouldn't have had without it?

    PIA. ~36 bucks a year. No, quite the opposite.

    Dark the stars and dark the moon
    Hush the night and the morning loon
    Tell the horses and beat on your drum
    Gone their master, gone their son.

    Dark the oceans, dark the sky
    Hush the whales and the ocean tide
    Tell the salt marsh and beat on your drum
    Gone their master, gone their son.

    With our ISP, you can't torrent copyrighted stuff without them sending you nastygrams, and there's the implication that enough nastygram strikes, they cancel your service.

    Use a better torrent site. I've never heard a peep about anything I torrent from TorrentDay (movies and tv shows)... but then it's invite only and uses closed trackers.

    I've also been pretty safe torrenting old music off of Pirate Bay. I suspect new music might be monitored by the music companies.

    Some one here did and I can't remember who anymore. But probably...

    I know I've only invited one person so far.

    Not yet, as my government still hasn't managed to install its porn blocking idea despite the bill being past years ago.

    The saying "Couldn't organise a piss-up in a brewery" springs to mind.

    All government IT projects are doomed to failure from past experience.

    So all that practice at failure has made them experts at it.
