Why, do you fancy losing your broadband service?

Re: Anyone managed to uncap his modem here?


No, I'm just asking is it possible to do it without getting caught?

Sure, and posting in a public newsgroup is the best way to do that.

Uh huh.

Well, being that he is in Croatia (or at least the NNTP Posting
Host says he is), it is probably not illegal there. Eastern Europe
is one of those places known for having the loosest computer
crime laws around. So in, short, what he is attempting to do
is probably legal in Croatia.

Wow, you're responding to a message from Feb 2006! I think the guy has
probably moved on to other things by now and probably isn't patiently
waiting for further replies to his thread. <G>

Well, my DSL provider uses a new services that archives posts
all the way back to 2003 (if the poster has not set an
X-No-Archive for them)

That's nice, but even OE should be able to tell you that you're
responding to an 18 month old post. I know it's bad, but surely it
can't be that bad.

      Presumably you're referring to Supernews?  My cable provider also
uses a news service (Giganews) that retains (not archives) posts for
about four years.  Just because you can *SEE* those ancient posts
doesn't mean that you have to resurrect them.

      I suspect that with Supernews (as with most (if not all)
conventional news providers) what you're seeing is normal retention,
not archiving, in which case an X-No-Archive directive is as useless
as tits on a bull.  X-No-Archive will, however, be honored by Google
and other (if there are any such) services whose primary function is
archiving news posts.

Giganews does not seem to ever get rid of thier news archives. When
I was on Comcast, that is what we had. The only difference between
Giganews and Supernews is that Supernews does not appear to
retain anything with X-No-Archive set to yes. Comparing between
Giganews and Supernews, before I had the cable modem service
turned off, I could see a lot of stuff on Giganews with X No
Archive turned on that did not appear in Supernews.

X-No-Archive used to be exlcusive to Google. I guess other
sites with longer rententions are using that now.

Of course they do. They just have some of the longest retention in the
industry, but they don't maintain an archive at all.

"exclusive to Google"?? I'm sorry, but this looks like another one of
those "you need ICS in order to do file and printer sharing"
statements. In other words, not only completely false, but so false
that one wonders how you even got there. :)

No, it's not possible as your ISP monitors all the traffic an their
network. I do know of a couple of users on my old Cable ISP did uncap their
modems and were caught very quickly and lost their connections.

It's not worth the effort. Don't forget, if it's worth stealing then it's
worth paying for it. ;-)
