This post is a rant about what I think is a pretty decent idea gone pretty badly wrong. The idea is something called “Wi-Fi Protected Setup.”
After skimming this page, I’ve decided that the circle of fifths is the Smith chart of music.
If you’re a regular reader on this site and that comparison made sense to you, then your name is probably either Stephen Granade or John Wilson. Let me know if I missed anyone.

Here’s your linkfood for tonight. I found an online file system service called rsync.net. It’s probably most commonly used for backups, but it could work for a lot more things. I’m considering signing up, simply because it’s so flexible. It’s quite a bit more expensive per GB of data stored than Amazon S3, but they support lots of cool applications for accessing the files.
Wow. Tonight is just a treasure trove of car-related stuff for me to point and laugh at.
I’ve heard of stuff like this before, but I’ve never actually seen plans. Behold: “PRELIMINARY PLANS TO RUN YOUR CAR ON TAP WATER!” (emphasis most definitely not mine).

I think most people who watch much television have those few escapist shows… ones that have absolutely nothing to do with reality but are addictive despite (or more likely because of) that fact.

The way I put it was that no one talks that way in real life, but it’s such fun to watch.
