Someone with a sense of humor. Can't Post

While I was away last week, at one particular intersection my computer was picking up a proctected WiFi signal.
The network name was "One cannot simply access Mordor"

This was in Wellsboro, Pennsylvania. If you are a member here, identify yourself!

Niiiice. [In reply to] Can't Post

And that name would stop me trying to access it!

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Saw one recently called "CSIS Surveillance Van" [In reply to] Can't Post

(CSIS is the Canadian version of CIA). At first I was "what the?" then I was all "as if!" Then I chuckled. It had to be a joke right?

One does not simply access Mordor. You need to get out and meet your neighbours.

Well, a simple: "You shall not pass!" Could also do the trick, right? // [In reply to] Can't Post

Wow! Now I want to think of a good one for my home WiFi!

Was anyone with you? That must have been one of those, stop-stare-jaw-drop & look around for someone to show it to- moments!

There are SOME neighbors I wouldn't WANT to know. [In reply to] Can't Post

I was on my Kindle the other day, while waiting outside my son's school, and discovered someone in the neighborhood there had a Wi-Fi network named, simply, "S**t Hole". I don't think I want to meet THAT neighbor!

I heard you got shot FIVE times in the tabloids.
It's not true. He never got anywhere NEAR my tabloids.

I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.

When I was in college [In reply to] Can't Post

*many* years ago and studying Computer Science, my password on the university's mainframe was "Mordor". One of my professors chuckled when he picked it up one day while assisting me on a project, so I know he was an "initiate". And I'd thought he was such a bore at the time... Tongue
