Heh - local community college started experimental wireless service in
the library. They had the password posted everywhere in range.

I asked them why bother with a password - why not just have a open
network?

The answer is funny - the college has a policy against open wireless
networks from before they offered any to students.

So they have to have a password and simply post what it is everywhere
until the policy changes.
