    You too wisesifu.

    It’s worked on all the PCs I’ve tried it on in multiple locations using multiple connections. Tried in Toronto (Canada), Montreal (Canada), Chicago (USA), New York City (USA), Roubaix (France), London (UK).

    Tried the method on Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, Ubuntu 11, Ubuntu 12, CentOS 5.5 and CentOS 6
