Ah, the joy of DSL subscribership. The old DSL modem imploded at some point in the last couple days. So we’re blogging at about 48000 bps right now. Earthlink will send a replacement, free of charge, but in the meantime I’m stuck in Slowville.
[Later: So I’m sitting here on dialup, waiting for pages to load, I flip on the AirPort card to see if there are any signals, and there is one. The name of the source is WSR-5000, so I Google it. It’s not encrypted, so I’m able to use it. Now I’m wondering who it belongs to and whether they’re making it available to others intentionally or accidentally. Here’s a feature request to the WiFi powers that be: How about including a tag in the information about the source which indicates whether the signal is free for anyone to use. I mean, the implication is that by not password-protecting the signal, you don’t care who uses it. But using that kind of logic would probably get me yelled at. =-)]
