    Yes, of course, it is a router, not a modem. Thanks.

    Thank you both.

    This has been going on at a low level for a long time, but receiving eight in one morning was a bit scary!

    The word on VLC

    The official reviews of the VLC media player are quite positive; user reviews are not. I've downloaded it twice this year and subsequently removed it, without even trying it, as so much "junk" is...
