So yeah, I was just reviewing my emails as root on pc486. I have a nice little script set up to update tekktonik.ods.org (and thus www.tekktonik.net) if the IP changes. Ever since Frontline (who bought out uscom, *sigh*) enstated their "disconnect all you freeloading bastards every 10 hours" policy, I get an output from this script about 3 times a day. Today, I had ungodly numbers of them. Apparently, the connection nazis are at it again! It seems like after a couple minutes of inactivity, they also disconnect you. At least they had the decency to email me about the 10 hour thing, so I knew in advance to give up on manually updating tekktonik.net's IP... *sigh*
I wish, I wish my ISP didn't blow. And that I had DSL.
