So what's funny is that only a few people have seen me pull my wireless computer access tricks... and for good reason. I look ridiculous. Sometimes, I sit at the window in my bedroom, poised to hop on some neighbors unprotected wireless router... but it takes the right angle, wind currents and planetary alignment... I have also, on more than one occasion, found myself in my car, parked in front of a capitol hill cafe with my laptop on my lap... pilfering their wireless broadband service for my own personal use without patroning their establishment. If I'm lucky, they will forget to turn off the service until the cleaning crew finishes. That gives me an extra half of an hour or so to upload my delicious delectables for growahouse consumption.

Anyway... I'm tired of that and I believe that it is time to connect to the information superhighway. There are so many things that I have to try and manage as I push towards completion that I really need to be connected to the world.

So I had a conversation with Verizon DSL just now... which was basically a waste of my time. I'm going to call back in about 10 minutes and hopefully I can have a conversation with someone who has worked there more than 5 minutes.
