In an Idle Moment

Post-retirement adjustment, I thought I'd dream up a prank to invite conspiracy theories from the neighbours. Hmm I thought, since I have personally set up almost all of the dozen or so wireless configurations in the Close, I hit on this:

I changed my Broadcast SSID to "Torchwood"

And waited a few day's, past the time of day with the neighbours as usual until one of them said " I can see a wireless network called Torchwood"

Yes, I said, I've noticed it too, look out for the big black 4X4 in the wee small hours of the morning!

I live in Cardiff, so the local kid's probably think that Torchwood has an active portal in the area....Perhaps I should get out more often now :))

Hi

you can disable the broadcast of your SSID

but you have to manually configure the wifi in the upcoming computer , the existing computers wont make any diff in the network

I know :)) The idea was to show it, so that I could promote some humour in the area....:))
