Started House Hunting This Morning

View Enlarged Images View Full CreditsI just got started looking at new places where I want to move. Of course the motivation has been there for some time, but the money has been lacking. I am thinking about how much it will cost me to live in a place. This resource I have to think about more than just what the rent is going to be. I definitely need to pay for the Internet and I would like to be able to afford some sort of cable TV or satellite package as well. Of course the Internet is a lot more of a necessity than it is to pay for TV. You do not have to have the five hundred channels on your TV set. People got along with three or four for decades. Of course when I was a kid you watched what your Dad wanted to watch. It was not very democratic at all. I did not worry a lot about it.

Of course what I want to watch on TV is mostly live sports. All of the rest is stuff that I could probably figure out some alternate way to get if I really wanted. Read the rest of this entry »

Internet Security and Hulu With Astrill Vpn

I just love watching Hulu. I’ve been outside of America for quite some time now, so I don’t normally catch up on the pop culture there so much. However, when I recently decided to switch vpn services to Astrill vpn, I found out about Hulu. For eight bucks a month I can watch all the cool American shows I used to watch when I lived there.

I actually am American, but I’ve been living abroad for some time. Recently, I had some problems with some credit card transactions and it was suggested to me to get a vpn to secure my internet connection and internet privacy. I tried a vpn company called Acevpn that was slow and didn’t really do the trick so I immediately switched to Astrill vpn. I think it was the simplicity of their site that made me choose them. I just hate trying to figure out all these computer tech-things. Astrill vpn made it quite easy to figure out what I needed, they had pretty good reviews, and the price wasn’t so bad so I chose them. Good stuff.

But the point I was trying to make is that I found out about this Hulu thing way too late. When I was searching for reviews about Astrill vpn I noticed that lots of people were trying to get American IP addresses and I didn’t really know why. I discovered that they were trying to watch Hulu (I didn’t know what it was at the time) which required that you have an American IP address to watch it. I subsequently found out that there are other places like some BBC radio stations and other British television sites that do the same things.
