marcus 2013

Sitting out on the roof...

...and idly switching on MacStumbler, I can detect three wireless networks, none of them in this house and all of them reasonably strong signals; one called Linksys, one called Netgear, and one called Limpopo, the latter presumably renamed by someone who knows a little about security. Although I don't currently plan to try, I'm willing to bet that it's the only one that's encrypted. Needless to say it is not detecting my network, or the one I set up for the flat downstairs, because I know how to RTFM...

I think that this means that in the event the cable to this house goes wrong I will probably be able to get online somehow...
