on the come up...only to come down
when we moved into this house we set the laptop down turned it on, and to our surprise the little computer network icon on the lower right had a blue bubble on it--[woohooooooooooo] internet service. Since about September i have been bootlegging internet service from someone in the neighborhood who had a kind enough heart to check "unsecured". [KUDOS to them] i have an inkling it might be the Russians next door...one of these days i'm going to bake them some brownies and give em a bottle of vodka or something.
Now the service was iffy at times but lately i've been getting 3 bars...almost four, it was pretty fast, didn't take extravagantly long for my downloads and movie watching experiences on netflix...until yesterday. now i'm back down to one bar... now i'm still thankful, cause the shit is free. but i think that was the universe telling me, "yo your time has come, stop being such a lamo and get your own dsl." so today i took it upon myself to stop my bootlegging and order some dsl.
[they must have moved the wireless router hence why my signal is sooo non existent]
well here are my top three reasons for bootlegging internet services
1. it's free
2. it decreases global warming [think of it like carpooling]
3. you save a billion rainforest trees [since you're not getting the bill--which is printed on paper]
and i'm all about the environment ;)
but man i need that legitimate service...
