Submission German decision requires secured wifi->

DinDaddy writes: A German court said the owner of an unsecured wifi point should be fined for allowing third party access resulting in illegal downloading. They went on to say simple first time password setting upon configuring the network was fine. So the security doesn't have to be effective. If I were German, I guess I'd jus set mine to the SSID of my network. Meets the criteria.

Submission Aqua model of the Enterprise->

DinDaddy writes: Neat youtube video of something from a hobby I was unaware of, aquamodeling, where an individual from Japan has constructed a submarine R/C model of the 1701-A Enterprise and shot it maneuvering about in a swimming pool. Much more gratifying than the results I had a s kid of just photographing my model work against black backgrounds. See it at
