The bad news is that my ADSL is down due to a physical line problem between the demarcation point and the street.
The good news is that the phone company says they will come tomorrow.
The bad news is that there are now no open wifi access points in the neighborhood.
The good news is that we have taught people to close off open access points.
The good news is that the college kids next door were happy to tell me their password.
The excellent news is that the password is memorable but definitely non-guessable, meaning we have succeeded in instilling even more good security practices.
