Wi-Fly – pigeon-empowered wireless internet

Faster than ADSL, relatively secure only downside is the ping time.

Oh, and apparently it still sucks under windows.

    (does this mean i have to comment?) cool, but pigeons don’t get along very well in the outback. when one explorer (possibly sturt) tried to release one near lake eyre to take a message back to a party behind them, it was attacked before their very eyes by a hawk or like bird and became so scared it crawled into a hole and refused to move, or something like that. i’ll stick with wires for now.

    Yes, if you had chosen not to comment I was going to send my pigeons around to your house to shit on your car. – no of course you don’t have to comment.

    But thanks for the history of pigeons in the bush none the less. I guess this renders high speed internet for those out of telstra’s coverage still out of reach (unless you have a dish).
