I am currently hitting an open wireless network at a friendly local business. I don't like to do this because technically it is stealing, but as I see it I am not doing anything illegal really since I am not downloading anything illegal and they are the ones who are too stupid to put a password on their wireless network. But then again, seeing as they are a hotel, that probably wouldn't work all that well.
One time someone hit my open wireless network and illegally downloaded the movie Madagascar 2, which boggles my mind. Why would you want to download that heap, even for free. They probably have kids. Anyway, I got a nastygram from my ISP telling me that if I did that again I would be in deep shit, and I was confused because I had never seen Madagascar 2, let alone downloaded it. Needless to say, a password and some sort of encryption went on my wireless network right quick.
The point of all this babbling is that when I am out here in the community, in front of a hotel or coffee house or the hospital or Mike-a-licious' house stealing wireless Internet access, I always feel a little bit skeevy because I am sitting in the car in the dark, but I also feel sort of like I am in a steakout or on some secret mission. Now that feels pretty cool. Like, as I am sitting here in this well-lit parking lot, my heart rate is up, my adrenaline is pumping, and I have those shifty eyes that the bad guy always gets in every cartoon. It's pretty sweet. I can only imagine what the people whizzing by on the highway think. Anyway, I just wanted to share that with you. I hope you have a wonderful day!
