So, in order to avoid the teeming masses of Republicans, protesters and security, I took the week off and Frankie and I are "down the shore". I've got limited internet access, but thanks to Coffee.Comedy I was able to pop in and attach myself, like a leech, to thier high speed, wireless LAN and keep up with work and time-wasters like this blog. This town is dry compared to the 5 or 6 networks I can pick up in my building alone. Somehow, I don't think I'll be able to convince my folks to hook up a wireless connection in a house that is mainly inhabited by renters on vacation. I'll just have to suck it up and get one of these. The connection will still be slow - but at least I won't be tethered to the wall.
