Comment Woktenna? (Score 1) 135

I've got a Virgin Mobile MC760 3G USB Modem, and am wrapping up using a wok skimmer as a parabolic antenna for it. I'm using a 11" skimmer, and went from two to four bars signal. Just have to finish the mounting and I'll be able to use it with our house wifi network through our router (it has a usb port and with dd-wrt I can use that for a failover connection when Comcast goes down). Here's the basic idea of it: http://geobray.com/2010/02/07/woktenna-for-3g/ Same idea, using USB wifi adapters: http://www.usbwifi.orconhosting.net.nz/

Steve, Steve
Steve of the Ballmer,
A guy who has no hair.
(Ahhhhhhhh)
Watch out for that chair.

Steve, Steve
Steve of the Ballmer,
Lives a life that's free.
(Ahhhhhhhh)
Watch out for that chair.

When he gets in a scrape,
he makes his escape
with the help of his friend,
a guy named Bill.
Then away he'll schlep
on his elephant Shep
While Fella and Ursula
Stay in step.

Well....Steve, Steve
Steve of the Ballmer,
Friend to you and me.

Watch out for that chair.

Promising costs nothing, it's the delivering that kills you.
