They moved in a month ago, saw them install their own cable. I didn't care much, figuring it was some digital self-install thing. Since then, my cable internet and cable television has been acting strange as soon as they get home. The internet service can slow down from my usual 250 kbps to around 3-4kbps. It often quits completly. So, I climbed the cable pole outside, and after much observation, they are splitting my cable. I talked to them about it, and they basically said, "Yeah, we are, and fuck you."

My cable provider has been contacted, and I will enjoy watching them scramble to take down what they've installed.

Jesus Christ. People today. Take pictures of what they installed. No, seriously. Do it right now.

Don't have IP, though we have about the same setup:

- 1 ghz Pentium 3

...etc.

I'll try, but don't expect anything.

Basically, they're running their cable through mine, and I end up paying for them.

Take pictures of it, like FA said. Then even better, if you've got a video recorder, tape them rushing up to get it off the top of cable pole.

Btw, ISP's don't deal with things like this very well, I once experience TCP/IP session hijacking on an old computer my dad ran, luckily I found out how to stop that from happening, if your in the U.S go to the police, there are special computer divisions at most stations as far as I know. If your going to speak to your ISP and or the police, make sure you don't scramble the signal, take some screenshots of your connection speed at the times of the day they change, and what times of day the family get back home,etc.

How boring. If you're going to die at least get creative people to help you out.
I dream of the bear. Once again, it shambles out of the forest. Once again, it lumbers towards me. But this time, although I am wet with fear, my fear has a different quality, and I realize that either I do not expect the encounter will kill me or I don't mind the thought of dying quite as much as I once did.
Again the bear bends over me. But instead of licking me, it opens its jaws over my face, so wide that my whole head is inside its mouth and I am looking down the dark tunnel of its throat. I feel its teeth meet through my neck, and I know it has bitten off my head. But when it lifts its mouth from my empty shoulders, I can see the world as well as ever - in fact, things have a lucidity I had never before imagined, and I think, What an effort it was to have to lug my head around with me for so long.

Fine. Do you have any sugestions? Maybe I could tell them to my neighbors before they make me dead in whatever way they chose.

Ergh, I meant to say: "If you're going to get murdered, at least have creative people do it". Sorry, my mind is completely off right now.

Oh, okay then, though my previous comment still stands as my neighbors aren't very creative.

ok, in australia, our power through the power points runs at 240v, im not sure what yours runs at, but cut there cable down, run it into your house, and attach it to a crudely made power power point -> cable plug, and turn the power switch on, i guarantee you they wont try it again for a while

Call their utilites company and tell them you're going on vacation and want the gas, heat, and water shut off while you're away. They usually don't bother to confirm who the caller is.

or write obscene messages in their lawn with weed killer.

No, take a picture. It's for the police. Trust me, just do it. A picture or two of what they put in will help you out immensely.

Yes, FA is correct. Take a picture of it, so even if they do take it down, you have some physical evidence, which helps alot.

UPDATE: They took it down, but I've got two (rather shitty) pictures. The cable company checked it out and I showed them the pictures. They didn't say much, but took the pictures and said they'd call me later. We'll see what happens.

If they don't do anything, you will have no choice but to form a rag tag group of young vigilantes intent on taking down the corrupt police force and restoring justice and freedom to your hamlet.
