The Wunicorn...


A Wunicorn is an unprotected wireless network so rare that you doubt it even exists, though you hear stories that long ago there were happy herds roaming the neighborhood, unabashed, unafraid. It shows up when you've moved into a new apartment and can't get an appointment for a cable installation for 7 days because of the holidays. It will show up in strange corners of the room, usually those blocked by boxes, and its presence will be so fleeting that if you don't immediately run over to it with an offering of a macbook, it will surely disappear. The Wunicorn loves to taunt. At times when you do manage to catch it, you've caught but a mirage, for as you whisper gently, "Take me to Gmail, creature," it won't respond to your pleas. But times like these, my friends, when I am riding upon the mythical Wunicorn, oh, they are so good. So good.

The best is when they show up when megavideo kicks you off, so you can simply switch over, refresh, fast forward and continue finishing your crappy quality new release.
