Animals, animes, cuties, cartoons, games, yes. But 18 floors of hell plus 2 levels down to the earth core if they know I'm a hush hush.

Not sure about me being a furry though but guess they've got the picture.

As for your sis. Aren't you allocating enough budget to your side of the cold war espionage? And you're the computer geek of the family, right? Why aren't you putting in chat loggers or unsecured network folder sharing on her system?

I've told him off many times, but he kinda is in regret now after a fur friend (a pet of mine which my dad was upset bout coz he used to be a trasngender) tried to help donate a huge sum of money when he had to undergo an operation.. xP
That showed him! But know his attitude, took only a few months after till he turned back to normal and was like "Don't let them influence you! Don't try anything "funny" with anyone! Don't you dare spend a single dollar on anything like a picture or suit."

For my sister's case..well..I've set the router to block FA on her laptop - not sure if it still works but...yeah - my parents kinda found out and told me not to do it again or risk losing my PC. :\ Doh.
I'm not the geek really - my dad is. xD
I've tried several tricks to kill my sister's laptop back then, like reducing her connection speed to 40kbps so that she stops spamming her stupid torrent downloads..but she would whine to my dad and he would investigate and all. ...And I get blamed and threatened.

Erf. Parents.. xD

Welll, my family don't know anything about furries. I don't think they'll understand as well. So... They don't know.

Plus, my lifestyle involves music more than furries...

Would that answer your question? :3

I probably will tell them in the near future, but what the heck. They may understand, they may not.

100% hyper, 100% of the time.

RE: Does your family know you're a "furry"..or even know what it means?
My dad doesn't have any...I mean ANY knowledge about the internet. So I'm pretty sure he don't know what a furry is.

As for my sis, I think she found mah FA by accident, and questioned me about it. But everything was cool after that. I think she forgotten about it now. Since it was a few years ago. xD

I really like my brother though. He's a person who respect people's privacy. I think he knew I'm a furry and all, since I usually use a furry icon for any account. But he never really give a damn about it, or even ask anything about it. *nods*

The best is to be the all forgiving, all lenient, all compliant individual that is blissful with life. Stay positive, acknowledge their concerns with a smile and nod. No point being all hostile when it only serves to deepen the hostility further.

As for the torrenting, without going too far off-topic, The Horse recommends a dose of QOS to help solve your speed issues.

Hollud. Simply, horse.

Sibling rivalries will always be sibling rivalries.
The only reason me and my brother get along is because we have a common enemy : our father

I would not recommend that. I've been experimenting with QoS on my router for days and all it did was slow my entire connection to a speed of a 28.8k every time I activate it, no matter what I set it to. Not all applications and Malaysian internet connections seem to support it.

It works for me (D-Link DIR-825 + DD-WRT). With up to 4 computers running concurrently with a variety of different services, QOS comes in handy when bandwidth heavy applications seem to suck out all the juice, and boy, do they.

It is not (exclusively) the Internet connection but the router that handles the duties of QOS, specifically traffic shaping. The router determines which packets are the ones that get higher priority, and adjusts the amount of bandwidth available. This allows for a more balanced distribution of bandwidth across a variety of applications. To contest that not all applications support QOS is not entirely valid since any application requiring access to the Internet either relies on common standards (HTTP) or requires specific ports and protocols (TCP/UDP). Again, the router comes into play. While stock router firmwares may not offer the option to configure custom application rules, customer firmwares, like DD-WRT, do.

Yes, programming QOS rules does take some time, but if you are like me and need to balance the demands of 4 separate computers (up to 6 when guests are at home and up to 8 with WiFi-enabled mobile devices), then programming QOS is worth it.

That was really asking for a "TL;DNR" Tongue
Too techy for the thread. Anyway, let's end this deviancy: I've tried, I've cracked (both my head and the router's casing) and I have insufficient time to keep setting and resetting my router to only find it limiting even HTTP requests to 0.01% speeds despite me setting 100% in the router setting for that protocol alone.

RE: Does your family know you're a "furry"..or even know what it means?
Oh, Hollud, yup! I'm on a DD-WRT firmware with QOS now. (D-link 615 though, it was cheap enough to risk the warranty with 3rd party custom firmware.)
Funny thing is..I can lower her bandwidth usage - but if its torrents, it still sends out 100's of outgoing connections. >_<
So it still disrupts my gaming or causes my MSN to drop occasionally as well.

But no worries bout that, its pretty much solved for now. Smile
