Morning walk

I see them all over town. There are a couple families that live close to our house and we live just a block or so south of Baker. There used to be a family that lived at the intersection of 7th and Jersey, that we would see almost every night and then again in the morning when I left for work. They don't seem to be too shy either!

I was joking- college students are an easy target! Though based on what was stolen out of our yard, I think college students would be a good guess. This was stuff that we just had out for decoration. I remember a few years ago, someone had their baby Jesus stolen from their yard display. This kind of stuff is harmless but annoying.

I'm not surprised that people are doing this, we just had something else stolen from out in front of our house last night. For a small town, there's a lot of theft around here. I blame Baker. :-)

Well, I didn't think I would get attacked for my opinion!

I understand that TV and wifi are technologically similar but I think that's where the similarities end. They have different uses. As far as just stealing bandwidth, say from a neighbor's unsecured network, I believe that's considered illegal, though it's been a while since I've read anything about it. I would think that most people would know not steal a neighbor's bandwidth but then again, most people would know better than to walk in to an unlocked house and take whatever they want. I guess the point is that I think theft is theft, no matter what the technology is.

I do secure my network, just like I lock the doors on my car or my home. I do so because there are people who will steal. I know that the ways I secure my network or lock my house are not 100% effective but if I just left everything unsecured someone would take advantage of it.

I think a TV signal is an even worse analogy. It's broadcast over a wide area and meant to be picked up by anyone who wants it. My WIFI signal is meant to be accessed by the people in our house only, which is why I have it secured as well as I can and it's setup to broadcast in a pretty short range. If you don't want people on your network or in your house, you lock them up.

If you leave your door unlocked and someone comes in and takes your stuff, is it stealing?

That's what I've been told by Mediacom as well. They have given us a good price break in the meantime. What happened is they oversold this area and need to upgrade to be able to provide for all the new customers. Seems like a better idea would have been to stop accepting new customers, upgrade, then add more customers. I told them customer loyalty goes both ways- if they treat me well, I'll stay a customer and cut them some slack when they screw up but if this doesn't fix it, I'm going to try Centurylink. We've had Mediacom since we moved here 6 years ago and while the service has had it's ups and downs, it's never been as bad as it's been the past couple months.

it's a sad day when someone steals the mannequin legs out of your front yard.

why would they care what I have in my yard? I don't give a thought to what other people have in theirs.
