Work Arounds for Idle Time - Out

Morning Team.

With the Idle Time-Out now heading in the direction of many +net BB punters, I thought it would be useful to have a thread sharing ideas concerning the counter-measures we could employ to get round this this nasty function.

So far I have picked up from other threads :-

1. Use your e mail client to check for new e mail every 5 / 10 mins.
2. Some VOIP applications may keep your connection active.
3. Some A / V applications may regularly connect to the internet, so eliminating the idle time out.

Any other software or hardware based solutions, would be greatfully accepted.
