Happy WiFi Day!

You may not realize it, but these are the waning hours of WiFi Day -- 8.02.11



  1. Talk Like a Pirate Day needs to die.  That is the most annoying and pointless thing ever invented.

    1. It is indeed Sep. 19th. I can never forget because it’s also my birthday. As far as I know I have never talked like a pirate on that day, though, I’ll have you know.

    2. I think talk like a pirate day is September 19th… or around then anyway.

      Don’t you mean “ARRRRRound then?”

  2. The linked article asks: “What’s the most memorable, fun or strange wireless network SSID (Network name) you have ever seen in your hunt for network access?”

    Bitches ‘n Hoes is my answer.  I really have to triangulate that one some day ;)

    1. One of my favorite things about my Nexus One is that it has stored a list of every wifi network that it’s connected to in the past (not just ones that it’s seen, unfortunately, so the one near me “OH Fuck ME, yes!” won’t be preserved).

      It’s like a diary – each one reminds me of where it was and what I was doing there at the time. I’ve connected to wifi on my phone all over the US and the world (I got the phone, unlocked, because I was going to do a lot of world traveling) and this list is preserved across OS upgrades etc.

      And yes, I have connected to “Yo Mamma”, apparently. She must not have been very good since I don’t even remember.

    2. There’s a network in my neighborhood with the SSID “Sweaty Stripper Tits.”  I gotta figure out who that one is.

  3. This gave me the idea to use ICD-9 codes for days.  802.11 in ICD-9 medical coding doesn’t exist, but 803.11 is “Other closed skull fracture with cerebral laceration and contusion with no loss of consciousness”
