    PLEASE change your Facebook and Instagram passwords NOW

    Agreed. I've been using the free version of LastPass for years--NEVER use the same password for any websites.

    PLEASE change your Facebook and Instagram passwords NOW

    Facebook stored both Facebook and Instagram passwords in PLAIN TEXT on their internal servers since 2012. While only Facebook employees had access, I wouldn't take the chance that a rogue employee didn't copy them. You can read about the situation here...

    Some interesting news for TV cordcutters

    cordcuttersnews.com has a pretty good chart up that shows many of the streaming services, and which ones have which channels. It is current as of today (March 14, 2019)...

    Some interesting news for TV cordcutters

    You can only watch it "live", so if you want to watch the news on that channel, you need to watch it when it's on (no recording or on demand).

    Free Directv Showtime preview

    Directv Showtime free preview March 15-18 (channels 545-557). Doesn't look like there's much on during the preview that's worthwhile...

    Some interesting news for TV cordcutters

    If I read the law correctly, the reason that locast.org can rebroadcast the over-the-air channels without fear of being shut down and sued is that they are a NONPROFIT. As a nonprofit, they can solicit donations for operating costs, but not to make a profit. There was a popular service a few...

    Some interesting news for TV cordcutters

    Hope your Mom likes it. I found it pretty easy to use on Roku. The picture quality looks like cable TV--not quite the quality of Directv, but definitely watchable.

    Some interesting news for TV cordcutters

    The free Washington DC Channels are up and running on Locast.org - I tried watching them on computer and also through Roku. Very good, especially if you are a cordcutter and aren't getting local channels. It's free! Picture is decent. Channels available: WRC (NBC 4) WTTG (FOX 5) WJLA (ABC 7)...

    Senior Citizen discount--Atlantic Broadband

    Saw on the Enterprise today that Atlantic Broadband is now offering a senior citizens discount for those receiving video services (cable TV). It's buried deep in the article, and I would assume you'll need to call 1-800-952-1001 and specifically ask for it. Here is the article...

    AtlanticBB/Tivo vs DirectTV

    I still have Directv as well and love DVRing and skipping commercials. Try this first: Figure out the best deal you can get from ABB Call Directv and ask for retention department. Explain how long you've been with Directv and tell them the offer you have from ABB Directv will most likely give...

    Some interesting news for TV cordcutters

    I think "free on Roku" would be better for me both cost-wise and better than fooling around with an ugly antenna/equipment so I'm willing to wait at this point. Glad your antenna is working well.

    Some interesting news for TV cordcutters

    I looked heavily into getting an antenna to receive the DC local TV stations over the air but because of our location I wouldn't pick up many stations in Lexington Park. I gave up. Reading tech news yesterday I read about a non-profit service called Locast.org (currently available on Roku)...

    Directv HBO/Cinemax end of year free preview

    Free HBO/Cinemax on Directv December 29th through January 1st. Unlike normal free preview weekends, it looks like HBO2 is playing a bunch of "Game of Thrones" episodes. Enjoy and Merry Christmas!

    I miss Metrocast...a little bit...

    I feel your pain. My next door neighbor (in her 80s) calls me all the time to help her with her wireless Genie. That technology is half-baked at best...no wonder they lost so many customers last quarter. I've been with Directv since Dec. 1996. No longer on contract, I call them every...

    I miss Metrocast...a little bit...

    I have the Directv Genie HR44-200 (wired) with client and love it. They keep trying to get me to do a free upgrade to the wireless Genie and I keep telling them to pound sand. Wireless is great--when it works. Nothing beats hard wiring. From what I've read on the Directv forums, the wireless...

    I miss Metrocast...a little bit...

    Just a heads up--if you're having internet issues and need to call Atlantic Broadband for support, the number listed on their website is a NATIONAL number. If you want to get better service (local), the Atlantic Broadband customer rep told me that old Metrocast customers should use this number...

    I miss Metrocast...a little bit...

    When we still had Metrocast, almost every December we would get a pretty good internet speed boost. With Atlantic Broadband, offering great speeds and prices to new customers only, all I'm getting from them this December is a bucket of coal...
