    Lockdown? pfff! our lot, when it gets warm, can do that overnight. Walking out the front door to have a web tangle across the forehead/face isn't unusual (head height seems to be favourite).

    As for devices? 3, PC's x2 and the NAS box.

    My phone doesn't go anywhere near the internet, more down to the fact that it takes fifteen minutes to get the onscreen keyboard up and I wish I was exaggerating (it really needs replacing, crashing camera module, sporadic corruption of the SD card and randomly loosing it's SIM are just icing on the cake... car comes first though). The TV is too old (my Grandads old set after the last one went belly up), trying to find a good 32" TV these days is nigh on impossible (space issues, even a 40" doesn't fit in the space available).

    Re: QOTW: How many web-connected devices are in your home?

    One,,,,,, okay two.

    My PC right now and my phone, when i leave home the PC are offline, but then i put my CCTV online so i can get notifications on my phone.
    And i am thoroughly hating my phone ( any phone ) actually just seeing another innocent phone user on a street, make my heart rate change / go up a little.

    I have a NAS too, but it is not on a online network.
    Also have a laptop, but it is of course not on now that my PC are on, though it should be really, the laptop are 55 W, my PC are 180 W idle.
    Of course i do not have a TV, there is nothing there for me anymore, its a dead herring in any way.

    A shamefully large number.

    Just 2 PC's connected for me - the rest are older ones kept offline. I might get a tablet or laptop in the future, so then that'll make 3.
