WWW with impunity

Well, ladies and gentlemen, our household has finally made its leap into the twenty-first century proper. We. Are. Wireless.

Actually, it's more the addition of broadband that's got me excited. No more 56k dialup! (Yes, I know, how 1995 of me.)

When I gleefully announced this to a colleague this afternoon, after Terz had reported all systems go with the installation at home, the colleague's immediate response was: "Now you can log on while you're in the toilet and send email to Minister while you're shitting." That's not a direct quote, but it's pretty much there.

Fyi, Terz (the one with the laptop) hasn't tested the wireless coverage in our bathrooms yet. Friends reading this who have laptops are welcome to bring their gadgets along and try.

OK, test complete. Connection is available on the throne. Happy much. But must remember not to be on iChat while I'm on it.

RICHARD: Oh, well, I suppose you're company. Say, are you and Rory wireless?

LORELAI: Oh, no, we're pretty wired most of the time.

EMILY: Why are you carrying that?

RICHARD: We're testing it. Jason here has just helped me hook up a wireless network for the house. Wi-Fi, it's called
...

RICHARD: Look at this! I'm walking around, and I'm still on the internet. Emily, I'm going to google you.

EMILY: You are certainly not going to google me!

JASON: It's a search engine, Emily. He's just gonna find you out in cyberspace.

EMILY: This sounds absurd.

RICHARD: Nah, can't use a laptop here, Jason. The signal doesn't reach.

EMILY: When do you plan to use it in the dark corner by the staircase, Richard?

Don't forget to password-protect your network! You don't want people to take advantage of your wireless network, do you? But of course Terz would've done all that. BTW your network probably covers your entire floor, if not the floors above and below you as well.

Err, that last comment was from me, your brother. So is this one.

But not the next one.

Well, if you were sending work e-mails from the throne, it would be crapping either way. :)

Happy that you've got wireless...can bring my laptop to try out? :)

Packrat --- be our guest. Friday D&D?

Brother --- Terz didn't exactly do it, but I think we're covered. Come over and test drive the network some time, and let us know how it does against your standards.
