Come spring/summer, we Iowa folk should try to get together for some technological fun. I suggest all meeting in Des Moines, where we can adjurn to the "Clicks Cyber Bar", with computers in every seating location.

Plug? What, do you think I benefit from this information in some way? Are you insinuating I'm pitching this location for some particular reason? You see, not everyone in Iowa is familiar with the social settings of Des Moines. Particularly, and very likely, people mentioned in a thread whose subject includes, "Cedar Rapids". I couldn't tell you the name of a single bar in CR, let alone, know enough about the local hangouts to make mention of where would be a good meeting point. I'd have to base any suggestions off those of others. Are you from Des Moines? Were you/are you aware of Click's CyberBar?

You see, it's only a "plug" if you've something to gain from the mentioning, or if you've been allocated paid advertising space, or if you've exchanged equal sharing of time for the dissemination of information. None of this is the case. Click's CyberBar is simply a decent place for the technically inclined to gather, makes rather decent sense, too. But, if you have no interest in a bar with technology and would prefer something which is more technologically clandestine, I tell you what...how about you head towards Sprokets Cart Racing off Hickman and we'll all meet up at the bar.

Oh no, have I plugged Sprockets to the point where you'll find specific need to mention? Maybe it's a conspiracy. You don't expect to see any super secret black helicopters buzzing around either place, do you? Maybe, it's all a devious ploy by some sneaky law enforcement agency to get all the "Evil Wireless Monkeys" in the same place to serve papers of varying types; including warrants for arrest, subpoenas, and even parking tickets!

Oh my.

In other regards, if I've completely misread the intended tone of your post, I must apologize as you've caught me on the wrong day. The monkeys, they taunt me...

Actually there is a Chris that worked there. I thought his last name was the same as yours but found out later I was wrong- sorry for any inconvenience it may have caused and have a nice day…

I'm from Marion, one night just along boyson road alone in the housing developments and such I found 133 APs. I use an cheap wireless card with a diversity antenna I bought at Wal-Mart, and I find all kinds of stuff around here. :)

No, this was in Marion and Cedar Rapids, before Boyson gets to Hiawatha. In the Bowman Woods area for the most part.
