here's a happy discovery: i found out that there is a very weak, albeit free and unsecured, wi-fi signal near my office window. it could not be detected if my mac were on my table, but at least it allows me to surf the net on my laptop rather than log so many pages on my work PC. haha. very unreliable, but it allows me, at the very least, to post messages to LJ such as this one. it's good that we don't have the same stringent rules as they do in singapore, otherwise, i'd be behind bars... but then i think that is a really stupid law to begin with. i really cannot wait for the business district to be completely wireless.
