Thanks, neutral.

TRE, I...*ahem*....."borrowed" my neighbor's wireless. It was a pretty unstable connection, but it worked. We moved last week & there weren't any networks to pick up....so we got our own. More reliable this way, too, so it's all good.

Hehe might want to set up router to prevent folks from "borrowing" yours now, if you're doing wireless.

yup, that's the plan. and a nice fat password. I'm also thinking of calling the network "This network is infected with a virus" so that no one will dare touch it...

i've never "borrowed" anyone's private wifi before....have parked next to a hotel (i wasn't staying at) that had free wifi to use that though

all of our neighbors signals are encrypted

There's only one open network in my building now, used to be several.

It's named "Your GF is a good fu*k"

I was so much more productive when I had dial-up.

I'm teaching an online class this summer, which means I'll have Blackboard open in one window, and Blue Crack in another
