I bet they'll be at oktoberfest this weekend.

So my internet is sometimes kind of wonky. It has something to do with the router, apparently? Either way, the result is that, fairly often, I will click on the little Airport icon in my taskbar to fiddle with the network and see wtf is up, and as such I see all the names of the other accessible networks of my neighbors. Since the Airport only picks up some of the networks some of the time, I don't always see the same ones.

Most everyone around here is very tech-savvy. There's only one network that isn't password protected, and it's a complete PoS and it probably the network for the office building across the street, and another network's password is, I've found out, "tubes". Most of them have good names. We're "Apartment of Doom 3.0", even though at this point it should be 4.0, we just never bothered to change it. There are some about which I am quite curious. "jamiswireless" and "voldy" sound intriguing, and "stop_bush" is probably a network for someone with some delightful political views. I want to know who runs "The Virus" and who runs "The Wifi Next Door", I hope that they are h4xx0r enemies of one another.

Tonight a network popped up on the list that I've never seen before.

"Bring beer to 608 for password"

I really, REALLY want to take the elevator to the 6th floor, and knock on 608. We're in 208, they're our vertical neighbors! Or something. Who are they? Will they accept any sort of beer? Why would they name their network that? Are they giant nerds, or party freaks with whom I would not get along? 608, I believe, is a penthouse. Are they fabulous rich people? Oh, so damn many questions. And I'm sure I'll never get up the gumption to do it.
