Mid River Slink

While checking our route on Trip Maker near Charlotte, North Carolina, my laptop announced proudly that it had connected to Linksys, the name of the wi-fi network at the Rowland home we had left hours before. Eudora managed to downloaded a couple of my 18 messages before we were out of range.

It took about a day before I began to realize the potential here. By that time we were on interstate 70 crossing the wide Missouri where my personal favorites, midriverslink 2&3, popped up. ...No longer do we have to relieve the tedium of a long drive collecting license plates from the 50 states, or looking for dilapadated houses to dedicate to the use of our car-mates - now we can slink along our highways collecting network monikers.

I already see my future grandchildren bent double over their hand-me-down laptops gleefully shouting Belkin 54! ssid1 ! PrIcEGnadE! infiwtz! arkiktek! Doc Office 1! 3blindmice! and hpsetup unsecured computer-to-computer network!
