    It's an insult to hippies to call the majority of those who attend by that name. I know people who go and they're just rich businessmen, hippie wannabes, yuppie types who think they're all cool for going. Lots of very interesting things to see there, and not saying I wouldn't want to go on some level. But it's like a lot of things were you become part of the show as well. Going to punk shows, I decided not to dress like a punker because I know I wasn't one. It would feel like going in a costume for me. And that's what I feel a lot of these people are doing. Not true at all to who they are and just dressing in costume.

    But the ones in the video sure are. Well OK, maybe not hippies but hipsters...

    Were you looking at the mirror when you wrote that?

    I know that's not me and would hope others would not think so. I'm not apologetic to the things I am. But having said this, I (and my friends) always disliked the alpha male who possess a braggadocious style attitude, and looks down upon anyone not in their position. I hate these sorts of people who always want to show and outclass others. Flip side I don't care for people who automatically dislike someone just because they are successful either. I've always been myself and the same sort of person, no matter how much or how little I possess or have succeeded. I sense there is a lot of phoniness going on here on one hand, but on the other, if people are having a good time, who is it for me to say. Just my choice if I want to go or not. Never have to do anything to act cool BTW. :cool:

    Any open public Wifi can be used to skim plain text data sent by connected computers - like when logging into http sites with the username and password being sent as clear text - only use public Wifi using an encrypted VPN or access https sites only.

    It may seem convenient to use public Wifi, but data skimming has been used for many years for many reasons - it's a convenience that pays for itself - it's really better to limit exposure of your data to your cellular connection and not use public Wifi.

    Or better yet, don't use data when mobile at all. :)
