VPN

Many of you won’t know what a VPN key is.

VPN Key

Technically it is this:

“A virtual private network (VPN) is a method of computer networking–typically using the public internet–that allows users to privately share information between remote locations, or between a remote location and a business’ home network.”  Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_Private_Network

In Reality it operates as my doorway to decent TV aka the BBC.

TV in the USA is so bad I don’t bother with a TV.  Instead my VPN key tells BBC iPlayer I am in the UK and hey presto I can watch glorious BBC TV and even listen to English football on Radio 5.

Thank you for modern technology.  It makes being an immigrant much, much nicer.
