    I definitely like the part which says:

    Stretch pants are a good thing, but some people should not be allowed to wear them. Wireless configurations are no different; some people just have no business being responsible for the deployment of a wireless network
    Good one!

    Yeah if your aren't going to use a VPN don't deploy wireless.

    On my drive in yesterday I set up my laptop with a wireless NIC just to see if anyone was using wireless near the freeway. What I found horrified me. I could connect to about 200 wireless access points. I could use about 3/4 of them to browse the web with NO authentication. None.

    Sounds like fun... I gotta get me a laptop! I guess you could call that a "wireless beige box".
