your good for now..

my friend bought a macbook and thought he was the worlds biggest genuis until his neighbor found out, and then just password-protected it.

thats probobly what will happen, but my dad just bough a super-nice receriver thing, so he picks up wifi from the coffe shop a couple blocks away.
