Re: Keep Your Pants On

I often have sneaky paparazzi hanging out around my boat. I had to buy curtains so they couldn't see in. Now I have to sit on deck or I'm never in the magazines.

Re: Keep Your Pants On

No way I'd want my nav system connected to the internet!

Not because of hacking, but because of Navico's dodgy software "updates"!

Re: Keep Your Pants On

Maybe a year ago I installed break-in monitors on our two routers. To my disappointment, nobody is trying to hack us. Too few spreaders ;-)
