Life with fewer wires

At this moment, I'm watching Meet the Press on TV whilst typing in the journal. It's basically my first experience with 802.11b, except perhaps at work.

It supposedly a "wireless" experience, which is true as long as I don't want to do it for more than a couple of hours. I can only free myself from 'wires' for as long as the laptop's battery lasts.

So I've been doing the "almost wireless" thing, leaving it plugged into a power source during my TV watching time.
