Unwired at Borel

We’re coming to you live from Borel Eye Doctors this morning. I came here for contacts a couple months ago since they were across the street from the old office and when Tabitha mentioned she was due for a checkup, I recommended them. She’s in the midst of her appointment and I have a PowerBook.

They’ve got the wireless action going and once again I find myself wondering: 1) Is it cool to just go around using unsecured access points like this? 2) How many of my passwords are still flying around unsecured? (Specifically wondering about my .Mac password which is tied to my iDisk which updates itself quite often and (I suspect) is sent in the clear.)

Anyone have suggestions for good Mac software (or built-in command line tools) that monitor network traffic?
