  1. I need a local phone line for my alarm system.

    Unbundled, Internet plus the cost of a pots line wouldn't save me too much over what I am paying now for the bundle.
     
  2. Its only Cable and Internet, and YES I need the internet.
     
  3. the fact that alarm systems require POTS is ridiculous in this day and age.
     
  4. I think there are wireless options available these days.
     
  5. How so?
     
  6. Might as well be hooked to a telegraph at this point.
     
  7. or you know... voip. Or just over the internet in general.
     
  8. All of the alarm systems at all 12 of my centers need a pots line as well. It's the cheapest and most reliable method for communicating back and forth between an alarm company and the alarm system.
     
  9. The myriad of problems this brings up you don't recognize, do you, most especially with your standard completely non technical home user.
     
  10. Not to mention opening up your alarm system to be easily hacked into from outside.
     
  11. says someone who never did any phreaking in the 1990s. Phone lines are not magical one way devices.
     
  12. right, because, you know, people still use war dialers to find modem connections as opposed to running an automated port scan today.

    Never did any phreaking. Son, you are grossly mistaken.
     
  13. I was just about to watch Battlestar Galactica again but half way through the first ep I realised I don't think I can watch it ever again - It was so shocking and awesome the first time and now I know all the 'reveals' it just won't be the same
     
  14. Cheapest? Yes. Most reliable? No. Least secure? Yes.
     
  15. As well as issues everytime you lose power.
     
  16. im watching through the whole thing again right now, i never made it beyond s2 before.
     
  17. Has anyone seen Shameless?
    Is it good?
    I'm done watching and yelling at the twats on Teen Mom2 on twitter.
    Time to start another series to watch at nite when my little man is asleep....
     

  18. I really like it, just finished watching season 3 yesterday.
     
  19. I am enjoying it. You start to feel real bad for the kids though.
    William H Macy's character, Frank, does not get his ass kicked near enough for my tastes.

    I don't normally watch lot of TV, but I would definitely recommend that one.
