    Before I'm allowed to get advisement, I'm now caught in a never ending online thing about relationships, preventing sexual assault, blah blah blah. I can see this stuff for a bunch of horny kids, but I'm in my mid 40's. I'm probably older than many professors. I have offspring older than many of who will be my fellow students. There will be no hanging out. There will be work to be done. Hopefully as little as possible will be where I have to interact much with these kids. I did this when I was in my 30's for a few years, getting an Associate's degree. The rest of the student body kinda found me to be old & did their own thing. Where is the "I'm too old for this shit" button?

    I don't drink, I don't look at ANY girls if I don't have to. They prefer life via phone.

    Yeah sexual assault and alcohol accuse are huge problems colleges need to address... But yeah it's kinda of silly for some of us. I'm trying to get financial aid but I didn't sign up for selective service as a youth...

    Irony: All the old people that show up at town meetings to oppose the evil weed being sold in their town, then go home, pull out their half gallon sized bottles and drink their gin and tonics and scotch and sodas until they reach their nightly pickling.

    Damn this is crazy accurate. Down to the choice of drink and size of Bombay container. Only thing you left out is they usually carry around 2 or 3 of those giant bottles at a time.

    And don't forget the late show entertainment when Daddy beats up Mommy and the kids block their ears and scream to try and make everything go away.

    Thinking out loud without any proof.
    I started using the WiFi through Comcast (xfiniy) now every time my computer starts using my Belkin router I start having problems navigating online. Then I go to settings and switch it back to Comcast WiFi then I have no problems. I think that they want me to use their internet system so they can keep track where I go online. :2c:I think they are screwing with my personal router.:bang:

    Just FYI, both your ethernet (wired) and wireless connections go through your router. You could install the Tor browser to hide where you go if it is a concern.

    probably neither here nor there but my ethernet runs from my modem and wifi through my router that's also connected to the modem.

    I've a couple friends who keep touting the need for a Tor when running bit-torrent but even though they use a Tor I still see their IP listed when checking the peer list so now I'm not even sure what a Tor browser really does for you.

    Are you sure you see "their IP" and not the IP of the last TOR node?

    Yeah it's their IP. Someone who knows a lot more about it than I do pointed it out to them one day using my computer when they wanted to argue that a TOR would always keep them anonymous one night as their computers were a block away seeding a few torrents. They freaked out when they took a look at the peer list.

    I actually wouldn't have know my own IP address if it popped up never-mind someone else's if they weren't pointed out to me.
