Um, yeah, last time I checked, I didn’t accidentally sleepwalk, steal a car, drive to the airport, buy a ticket to some other country and fly there, then subsequently check into a hotel and wake up in the hotel room.
"Oh, your ISP might be routing your connection through a foreign country" says the FAQ. Yeah… sure… even though "ip-adress.com" detects that my IP and ISP are both BRITISH.
D’ya know what I think? I think they’ve blacklisted certain ISPs, more specifically, STUDENT ISPs, from accessing video on iPlayer, so they’re FORCED to buy a TV licence. That sounds like a good theory to me – it makes sense…
TV Licensing, just to let you know… YOU CAN SUCK MY COCK. I’m watching TV when I want to, and I don’t care about your crappy license. How’re you gonna get evidence that I’m watching TV, huh? Break my door down, find my booster, charge me £1K, and then get screwed over for MORE than that for breaking and entering AND damage to property? As for watching shows that have passed, I’m not stupid… I DO know what BitTorrent is… I’m downloading Top Gear S12E03 right now! What’cha gonna do about it? BAN me from initiating peer-to-peer connections? LOLOLOL. Go eat a flange.
Just in case you haven’t noticed, I hate the TV Licensing dicks, because they think they’re all high and mighty, and they think can give you threatening letters as a result. "ENQUIRY OFFICERS WILL BE VISITING UNLICENSED STUDENT ACCOMMODATION FROM 01.11.09." Yeah, that was over a month ago – still not got a visit. "WE KNOW THAT OVER 99%* OF STUDENTS HAVE TAKEN LAPTOPS OR PC’S TO HALLS THIS YEAR." The star means "Test sample of 494 students." FAIL RESEARCH. And so it goes on. Oh, by the way, I wrote underneath that line that says "Please do not write below this line." Oh noes, you gonna arrest me?
See yas later – my download’s about to finish.
Okay, apparently it’s Keycom – my ISP. Or IPS, as I like to call them – Intolerable Pile of Shit. They should be fixing it, although I dunno how their servers could’ve suddenly believed they were in another country, not the UK. Videos from Hulu.com (streamable only in America) now supposedly work (for a limited time only, folks!! ), but they won’t work for me. Peh, doesn’t matter – there aren’t any US programmes I’d wanna watch anyway.
