I have a problem where my neighbors wireless routers are causing too much interference with my own home network.

I found a tool for the Mac OS on http://www.istumbler.net/ that actually shows you all of the nearby networks and what channel they are on so you can change yours to one they are not on.

This program shareware and so far, it has solved some performance problems for me.

Kudos to the folks who made the program!

I like those emails that come to your inbox promising X, Y or Z. There are a lot of talented people who waste their time writing scripts that go out to the net and scrape webpages for email addresses. If you’re that good at doing something, use it for good, not for EVIL!

So.. how do you stop this? Well, I found this one site that has a nifty solution to this problem: use javascript to protect your email address!

It’s simple and it gets the job done. Check it out!
