gawker.com has a fantastic article by Adrian Chen about Wifi Technology, Security, and the Police which I have copied below.
Did you hear about the Indiana family whose home got raided by a SWAT team because they left their Wi-Fi open and someone used it to post threatening messages? It's being cast as a cautionary tale to warn people to always lock their wireless networks. But the more important argument it makes is for a world where nobody ever locks their wireless networks at all.

Greetings, members of the Seminary Community!
I will be leaving Thursday at noon (and returning Tuesday) heading for the Southeast Linux Fest (SELF). SELF is a community event for anyone who wants to learn more about Linux and Free & Open Source software. It is part educational conference, and part social gathering. Like Linux itself, it is shared with attendees of all skill levels to communicate tips and ideas, and to benefit all who use Linux/Free and Open Source Software. LinuxFest is the place to learn, to make new friends, to network with new business partners, and most importantly, to have fun!
Towel Day is an annual celebration on the 25th of May, as a tribute to the late author Douglas Adams (1952-2001). On that day, fans around the universe proudly carry a towel in his honour.
This is a special towel day because it is 5/25/12 or 5+25+12 which equals 42. The exact aswer to the question of Life, The Universe, and Everything.
The original quotation that explained the importance of towels is found in Chapter 3 of Adams' work The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
Due to the complex tech & a/v needs of the COB's Planting Confrence, I have moved my office to the Gathering Area of Bethany. I am still doing as much "normal" work as I can squeeze in between Conf Requests so feel free to let me know if you have any difficulties.
I'm taking a couple of days hoilday, Friday May 11th and Monday May 14th. I'll be back Tuesday.
From Wookiepedia, The Star Wars Wiki
May 4 is often known as "Star Wars Day". It is jokingly said: "May the 4th be with you", in reference to the popular phrase in Star Wars: "May the Force be with you."
The phrase dates back to at least 1979, on the day Margaret Thatcher was elected Britain's first woman prime minster. Her party took out a newspaper ad in the London Evening News that said "May the Fourth be with you, Maggie. Congratulations."
A lot of people have been telling me they are getting fraudulent messages form "PayPal". This is not uncommon to be honest. This is what is called a Phishing attack.
