Ah thanks for that.Function Creep.
@ Fashizzle pop Hey I was still working, only DLing to watch at home, when work has a T1 connection it's always going to be faster than your home onw
I was getting DL speeds of over 1MB per sec !
I guess I should just limit my downloading a bit then, well at least during non-term time. Term time lots of network traffic - easier to be less noticable in the crowd I suppose
Yeah I'm sure my bank uses encrypetd protocols - I doubt there are any in the UK or most of the Western world that dont.
I can understand why an employer would want to keep an eye on employees 'net usage. JUst brings up the whole ethics of it, say someone is HIV positive and uses the company 'net to read up about it - they see this and then they know something about the person medically that they shouldn't - that opens a whole can of worms I suppose.
I had a lucky escape a few years back when I was an undergrad, was playing about with a mailbomb prog, well using it to get revenge on somebody, and sent a few thousand emails through my universitys server and another unis server on to the person I was "hitting" needless to say it didnt go without a flaw. I managed to accidently bring down two university servers ooops !
Thy had the content of the emails which luckily for me I had sent as blanks with no message title either. So from then on I knew they must log at least some of what was going on over their network.
Got hauled over the coals for it - pleaded ignorance and said I never realised the prog was running I just DLed it to look at it and got off with a severe censure - basically a slap on the wrist. I've been extremely careful ever since then
