ExpressVPN and D-Link DIR-890L Compatibility

This may or may not be up your alley, but if you own a D-Link DIR-890L or L/R and you’re looking for a VPN service that can be connected to natively by this router (i.e. as an “always on” outbound tunnel), ExpressVPN doesn’t support it.  Their documentation is circumspect (it references the much older DIR-605L f/w 2.05UI) but they’re otherwise pretty transparent that it may not work.  I found it just didn’t connect as an L2TP client no matter how much I tried (even with much discussion with their engineering support).

Web Users At Risk Of Social Networking Addiction

This is kind of like saying conversationalists at risk of talking to other human beings.  The term addiction is thrown around way too easily these days.  Okay,

Eleven percent of those under the age of 25 would interrupt sex for a message, and 24 percent under 25 would answer a message in the bathroom.

…is a bit silly.  But really, it seems to me almost like it’s a restructuring of social norms.  Is it a problem, or is it just an evolving expectation that we have with the immediacy in communication and relationships?

Although, if you’re interrupting sex for a message you’re just not doing it right.
