Funny thing about WiFi


November 28, 2009 by readlisaread

I bought myself a TShirt from ThinkGeek .  Part of my growing collection of Nerd Shirts. It got a lot of comments, from staff and students alike– but none more so than when in the staff room at lunch we discovered that not only did the shirt detect WiFi, it also detected Microwaves.

Now, I have always made it clear that although I am very techy now, I am late to the game, and there are so many holes in my knowledge.

Reading this cartoon, coupled with my WiFi-shirt experience filled in one more gap in my knowledge.

  1. Very geeky of you to get one of those shirts, and yes I am envious 😉 I saw a clip of Norah Young testing out one for ‘Spark’. You gotta love xkcd for nailing it 🙂 I’m embarrassed to admit that I only just realized a few months ago that the microwave and cordless phone interrupt my WiFi. I gotta work on those powers of observation I guess…

    I actually think my phone is a sentinent being and knows whenever I am chatting on Skype with someone because that is the exact moment it will decide to ring and shut me down. Hell hath no fury like a spurned phone after she discovers you’re flinging with Skype.
