I wish Gene would come back to the board.
I talked to him and he will have to get a new computer, they have is IPO are what ever it is, flagged.
I'm pretty sure you can spoof your IP address if you know what you're doing. It's a little over my head. I used to have an email client that just permitted it, but I think I was running Linux then. That was just email, though.
Maybe he could go through an anonymizer. Those are set up exactly so your IP address can't be stored and tracked by the predators like Google, Apple, and Facebook who want to sell your private data. You log into the anonymizer and then everything goes out from them. Of course, MLB might know who the anonymizers are and just block all of them.
Getting a new computer will only change his hardware address, but not his IP address. I'm doubtful that MLB tracks the hardware addresses because they recognize us just the same regardless of which machine we're using. If they're watching for an IP address he might be able to ask his ISP just to put him in a different address block. Or I suppose he could just change his ISP and he'd for sure get a different IP address. Send this note to him if you're in contact with him.
I thought there was a time limit on bans. Surely he's out of jail by now.
Navigate to the "Start" menu and select "Run." The Run dialog appears.
Type "cmd" (without quotes) and press the "Enter" key.
Type the following line exactly as it appears: ipconfig /release Then press "Enter." Note that this command may not be recognizable to some versions of Microsoft Windows. If this is the case, type: winipcfg /release
Enter the following text exactly as it appears: ipconfig /renew Then press "Enter."
If that fails, do a word search for "how to get a new IP address.
"...it's the pitching, which has gotten better by adding Latos, Marshall and Madson"
i don't know that any club added more pitching than the reds this past offseason. the yanks added kuroda and pineda, which is also very good.
A nice reminder. But I think it only renews your dhcp-provided address. If you're getting your IP address from your own router (i.e., the router is a dhcp server), something in the range 192.168.x.x, it will only renew the dhcp-provided IP address from the router. At least I think so. Maybe there's something in the router's setup that allows a renewal - I haven't looked in a long time.
If Band4life is getting dhcp directly from his ISP (e.g., his computer is directly plugged into a DSL line) he ought to have been getting different IP addresses every day anyway. But the ISP will always give addresses in the same reserved block. Actually I had an ISP once who gave me the same address (not static, but they had some control) as a convenience.
Does anyone know what MLB actually looks for?
Tell him that he can call his Internet service provider and usually for a small fee theu will give you a different IP. It cost like $5 with Insight cable.
