So this is happening right now. I've hated that arched middle wall in our kitchen since we moved here a year ago, and the other day Opa handed me a sledgehammer.
More on that later.
As it turns out, disassembling an entire room in your home requires electricity to be shut off for awhile. And no electricity means no WiFi. Any internetless blogger is pretty much REQUIRED to roam the entire block scrounging for an open internet connection. I have to say that my neighbors are very strange, very paranoid people. There were absolutely NO open networks to be found, but I did discover a whole lot of hilarious WiFi names. Here are my faves.
Funniest WiFi Names We've Seen
In case you're wondering what our WiFi name is, we're on high-security internet lockdown with “ThisIsaVirus.” For the WIN!
Using an amusingly scary WiFi name to ward off would-be hackers is helpful, but if you're serious about internet security it's best to use a free VPN service like Hotspot Shield to shield your data. Encrypting your info over the interwebs means that even if someone does manage to hack into your network, they won't be able to access all your personal information and pretend to be you when applying for a loan or rack up credit card bills in your name.
