9. No More Late Night Gaming Sessions
My brother, for some reason, HATES using his laptop in his room even though he has a desk. He comes downstairs to sit in the lounge next to my room and games until really late at night with his friends (always talking really loud/yelling into his headset) while I’m trying to work/study/sleep.
He utterly refuses to go to his room when I ask, claiming that he has every right to be there because I “don’t own downstairs.” He is in a competitive gaming clan, often competing in Tribes: Ascend competitions with cash prizes.
I have written a script that turns the internet off for 5 minutes every 10 minutes. Just enough time for him to get into a game and then have his connection drop and then repeat 10 minutes later. All night.
