I just arrived home and am now starting relaxation times. When I came to my dad's, first thing I checked was if anyone was mooching off our wireless (unencrypted). Sure enough, I had to set up my first MAC ban. Man that's empowering. You should try it sometime. Leave your network unencrypted, then watch your DHCP table. Swat down anyone's MAC that you don't like.
I've a mission to do while I'm home: Fix up the family computers. I think I'm going to rewipe them eventually and put Arch on them. Hopefully they'll be able to get over the fact that they don't have desktop Icons.
Also this is good to know: xvidcap
. I've been looking for a toy like this.
