My short experiment in good neighborly conduct is over. For a few weeks, I was running my wireless LAN without encryption, but now AT&T has put a bandwidth cap on my connection.

It’s funny how many people will run non-SSL traffic over an unknown WLAN called AndroidAP without so much as a second thought. It’s trivial for anyone on that network to read your traffic, people! Also, watching netflix over what looks to you like a tethered phone is just a bit mean, don’t you think?

The title of this post is my new SSID 🙂 I figured Persian poetry was nicer than those passive aggressive “I can hear you through the wall” network names that are so en vogue, and more likely to make someone smile.
