Streamyx, PayPerPost & ReviewMe

I am stealing my neighbour’s wifi because that pundek[tag] Streamyx[/tag] has been down since afternoon.  God bless neighbours who don’t secure their line.

I am finally getting my money from [tag]PayPerPost[/tag]!  Every single day, money will go into my PayPal.  Woohoo!  I joined PayPerPost exactly one month ago and have earned USD246.52 plus USD5 from referral.  I love PayPerPost because of the bad vibes from many mean bloggers, I love to be in the midst of controversies.  (Hey, if you are going to join PPP, do use my email as referrer ya?  the5xmom(@)gmail.com)

And for ReviewMe, I think I am one of the luckiest blogger because  I already got one writing assignment.  And I also earned USD50 for reviewing [tag]ReviewMe[/tag].

So, you tell me lah, how should I screw Streamyx for such a long downtime?  I am missing out on earning US dollars, you know?  I must publish this fast-fast before my neighbour goes to sleep (and switch of the modem).  I got no idea which unit of the apartment so I can go pay him/her for leaving the line on for me.

    Quoted from Straits Times
    A 17-YEAR-OLD polytechnic student has become the first person here to be charged with piggybacking on someone else’s wireless Internet connection.

    Garyl Tan Jia Luo was accused yesterday of using a laptop computer to gain unauthorised access to a home wireless network on May 13 this year.

    If convicted, Tan faces up to three years in jail and fines of up to $10,000 under Section 6(1)(a) of the Computer Misuse Act.

    Tan was released on $6,000 bail and is scheduled to appear at the Subordinate Courts on Wednesday.

    Court documents did not describe the circumstances in which Tan was arrested, but The Straits Times understands that a neighbour near his Casuarina Walk home had lodged a complaint against him.

    While there are no statistics on how commonplace the practice of piggybacking unsecured home wireless networks is, networking firm Cisco System’s spokesman, Mr Rayson Cheo, said it is probably quite widespread here.

    Most modern notebook computers and personal digital assistants (PDAs) have the ability to sniff out unsecured networks and hop online for free with just a few clicks.

    There are numerous guides online that describe how to do this and the low cost of wireless networking equipment means that most HDB or condominium blocks have unprotected networks users can log on to.

    Said Mr Cheo: ‘People assume, wrongly, that since it is there, it is okay to use it.’

    Mr Aloysius Cheang, the chairman of local infocomm security association, the Special Interest Group in Security and Information Integrity, said: ‘Most people probably do it because it is convenient, or because they are cheap and want free Internet.

    ‘But, for some, it is because they want to do something illegal like defaming someone or downloading pirated MP3s, and they don’t want the activities traced back to their own network.’

    In the online world, there are even special terms for it, like ‘wardriving’ and ‘Wi-Fi mooching’.

    The problem, said lawyer Bryan Tan, is that while most people know that mooching is not quite legitimate, they probably do not know that it can be treated as a serious offence.

    ‘Blinkered by the convenience and allure of ‘free Internet’, people don’t realise that mooching is the virtual equivalent of trespassing,’ he added.

    Likewise, many users do not seem to realise that they can block moochers simply by installing a password on their Internet connections.

    For most users, the only indication they get that someone is mooching is when their connection speed slows down, though Mr Cheo said software tools are available for download that can track who is using a network and what they are doing on it.

    While the case is the first of its kind here, there have been at least two similar arrests and convictions in the United States.

    In some countries like Holland, Mr Tan added, Wi-Fi network owners can even be held liable by the courts for crimes committed on their unprotected networks.

  4. Lilian, time to delete this post n do not ‘piggyback’ again. Ignorance is not defensible in court. Dun want to miss ur posts!

  5. Wei, wei, wei! I signed up for PPP about a week ago using you as referral but until now I still haven’t even got any confirmation email wor. I request for a resend, the system tells me it has been sent. I tried to recreate another account, I’m told I can’t because the username and paypal email has been taken up. I wrote to support and posted in the forum but no reply to date. No confirmation email how to submit my blogs for approval? Bleh! Not happy with PPP so far. BTW, you good lah, got so many blogs no need to touch your personal blog. For me, I think no choice, maybe have to use the personal blog for paid posts too. :PpP
