Midgley Corner – wireless networks

So I'm sitting in a hotel room in San Diego (I came here to get away from all that sun in the UK) with my caveman DNA telling me to get up because its 11:30 on a Monday morning (actually its 3:30 am local time) and the sabre-tooth tigers will get me if I stay in bed any longer – trying to send email via the hotel's wireless network. But I can't because there are a dozen other corporate wifi networks belonging to guests running across the infrastructure and confusing my SMTP server. Guess what, none of the other networks are encrypted and that includes the one belonging to A Very Large UK Law Firm. Hey ho, when it comes to security it's always do as I say, not as I do.
