Internet Access In 2008

… will apparently be more frustrating.

Those of you that know me may know that I don't like to pay for stuff.. hell, I'd probably steal my apartment if I could figure out some way to do it. No, I take that back – real theft, stuff that involves a loss of property or material from someone else, I don't support that. Bits and radio waves though, I "gray-area" that in my mind to the extent that I numb my morals til they're non-existent.

I spent a good 20 minutes running around with my router in an attempt to get any sort of usable (unprotected) signal – from anywhere. Found one.

I'm going to over-analyze this event and look at it as a sign of things to come. Like I said before, I feel like 2008 is my year, and I'm going to come out ahead of the game before 2009 rolls in.. but that doesn't mean it's going to be an easy ride. I'm used to easy rides, sliding along, drifting through – 2008 is going to be the year where I'm forced to put effort into my life. Yay? Yay.

I took the day off, so hopefully I'll be sleeping when this post goes live. Just thinking about tomorrow is making me tired. 🙂

I dreamt of rhinoceroses.

    Just be careful using open internet signals. Hackers are known for leaving open access and then hacking the computers that jump onto their signal.

    If they can get through my router and then my firewall.. the way I've got them setup.. well, then I figure they've earned it. I'm only worried about my traffic being intercepted, but obviously that isn't much of a worry. 😉
