I haven't forgiven you, I was just hoping to trap you with the old "special
wireless access point" trick.  Or maybe just sneak some heliobacter pylori
into your hamburger.  You know, the basic tricks, nothing fancy - yet... :-)

And I for one would be all for that too.  My back yard is lousy for frisbee,
anyway.  I do have one, and I didn't even have to ask the guy at the store
what it was called (http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2005/6/27/)

I too approve of going to a park, and divorcing geeks temporarily from their
wireless devices so they can try conversation in the time-honoured fashion -
by squirting air through our vocal chords

Have fun,
