Any new ones? I'm glad we managed to dodge the bullet long enough to
get fq_codel for wifi deployable, but given the industry consolidation
I have little hope for making a further dent on anything wireless.

Sometimes jail sounds nice. No rent to pay, no car insurance. Quiet.
No wifi, No internet, no hitting reload on facebook every 5 minutes to
check out the latest cat videos, and I'd be forced to exercise
regularly. The food can't be worse than my own cooking, either.

I could read a few books, maybe write one. Jail worked for Thoreau!
