    Wireless Internet Access at the Rally

    Good news for the people that can't leave home without staying connected. Talked to a guy whose company is installing it and "it" is supposed to cover the whole grounds.
    Boy are we coming up in the world! First the biggest woman's toilet and now this.

    Mike,
    That is great and I'll use it myself when I get there, but as Co-Chair for the RA Rally in Boise two weeks before Vermont, I have to say we'll have full coverage wireless for our rally grounds.

    Coffee cans and string don't count!

    I'll be completely wireless before, during and after the rally.

    That's what Rob and I tried to tell you for years! Congratulations on finally being on broadband and upgrading from that coal-fired computer.

    Starbucks?

    Double Latte at triple the price?

    Give me that old Navy coffee the kind you put your spoon in and the spoon stands straight.

    And the dregs can be used for battery acid although you have to take it out of battery after three days or it will burn out the battery housing.

    Did someone mention webcast?

    Not only will there be full wireless on the grounds but the MOA Media Department is planning on having three or four cameras providing live feeds to the MOA website.

    Rally Webcams

    The rally webcam feeds from Vermont will be archived. They will then be used in a far-reaching extortion plot. No one is off limits.

    Stay Tuned ....
