+Jaime Uribe not that I can see, would potentially need to be on the journey to be sure. Driving down to London tomorrow, I'll see if anything crops up.

It may have been a "Budget Buy" but combined with a £12 unlimited data goody bag from +giffgaff, I'm more than happy to never, ever throw money at the big networks, or the big manufacturers again.

There's been an exponential rise in my broadband consumption since December last year, wonder if +XBMC has any idea what might be causing it. I built my HTPC around that time, but surely that's pure coincidence rolls eyes #xbmc #xbmchub

My connection was 3mb with plusnet however it was going from 4.99 to 9.99 and talk talk were doing fibre for 12.50. My line is over the ratio from the green box so fibre only does 16mb however considering the price, it was acceptable to hang my stuff off of it. Currently we are using a net book, 2 laptops, a chrome book, 2 rokus, a pogo plug, a smart TV, a mini server, 2 computers and a raspberry pi. It's running fine so I imagine you will wiz along!

I pretty sure I wouldn't be doing the job I'm doing today if it wasn't for LinkedIn, and even though I'm in a perm role and happy, I still get approached at least once a week.

Potentially the only plugin an XBMC user needs?

I've had this running on a clean install for a few days now, didn't get round to the rest, so it must be good right?

+David Carey Netflix integration is a tough one. There is a plugin I've yet to try, but because of the DRM and Netflix's need for a browser it's not seamless. You can try chrome launcher within Xbmc to load chrome and then open the main site. I've got Netflix on my smart TV so it's not a deal breaker, but I'm using it less and less as time goes on. Plenty of good content with things like icefilms, movies25 etc.

Funny how a day out on the road for work can totally throw you. Didn't expect to pass this in a Cheshire field!!

I really don't want to unsubscribe from the community, although I haven't had a query yet and generally lurk around in the shadows, but the increased prevalence of users posting selfies, random location updates, basically spam is becoming annoying. I find it hard not to respond negatively, usually asking what their specific question is, but it's so infuriating looking through so many posts before seeing anything of substance.

My question is twofold: How is the community moderated, and what is being done to prevent spam?

+John Skeats thanks for your response, it's a huge community and I know there are a lot of users who are on topic. Occasionally I've lapsed, today be one such time, (I think you may have replied after me) but overall I let it go over my head. Keep up the good work.
