I received a new laptop for my birthday. It has over a gig of ram, runs 2 gigaHertz, and has a networking card.

It seems I've somehow tapped into somebody's LAN - Local Area Network. I'm running highspeed... sometimes, and erratically.

Problem is that I don't know who it might be - heck, could be the local tower for all I know - but reception is iffy in the house, and I've not tried my room yet, which is below ground level.

I'll probably do a combination of highspeed and dialup.

Oh, and this thing is running Vista. It's a huge improvement over the original versions I've seen!
