To Be or Not To Be ... is really the question. Guess it just depends on how good your
connection is. Word has it that "smoking pipes" were found buried in the backyard of William
Shakespeare's old digs - "with marijuana residue" in them. Yeah ... wonder why ? To be or not
to be -- like a rolling stone. Sorry - wrong era. Ya never know, maybe Bob Dylan and William
Shakespeare are kindred spirits or kindreds with lots of Spirit. So this is what they meant when
they said ... "Something Stinks In Denmark" ??? Funny. It must have all gone (up in smoke).
Stop laughing. You're smoking too much. I mean, you're laughing too much. Something like
that. Never mind - it must have been the stuff was just that good. I don't recall. Here -- have
another glass of red wine.

To Be or Not To Be ... a Wireless Computer ??? Intego NET BARRIER BLOCKS INTRUSION
ATTEMPTS ON WIRELESS NETWORKS. The leading developer of Macintosh Internet security
utilities announced that NetBarrier, the personal Firewall program for the Macintosh machine,
provides full protection from hacker and vandal attacks coming over the Internet -- even from
intrusion attempts on wireless networks. Engineers at Berkeley University have recently
discovered that the Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) algorithm, which is part of the 802.11
standard (used by Apple AirPort networks) contains flaws and is vulnerable to hacker attacks.
They recommend that "anyone using an 802.11 wireless network not rely on WEP for security ...
and employ other security measures to protect their wireless network."
