"You know this one: the I-have-a-question walk," says fish. "This end user explained that the wireless connection on his home computer shows 'No Internet Access' and asked how would one correct this problem.

"I asked about his wireless source -- can he reboot the wireless router?

"No, he replied. Why not? I asked.

"He said, 'Well, I'm borrowing the wireless from the public library next door. Can you tell me what I'm doing wrong?'"
