So I'm at my aunt's apartment, trying to work. I hop on the wi-fi sniffer and see an unsecured network with an SSID that is very close to one of her kids' names. I connect, and go about my business.
After almost a full day, one of the neighbors comes home and my connection suddenly drops. Odd. I get up and wander around, looking for the router so I can reset it. I find it laying on the floor of a spare room, unplugged. That's when I realize I've been using the neighbor's internet all day. Oops.
Turns out the doohickey they have here doesn't have a wireless setup, and someone's got the cables, so now I need to go to Wal-Mart to get a cord. Oh well, at least then I'll be in business.
