The Power of Pringles

Wireless networking is becoming more and more popular. Unfortunately some people, like my girlfriend Amybear, are stuck with crappy wireless connections due to proximity. She has free wireless through her complex, but she lives so far from the hub that she usually doesn't get enough signal. Anyway a cheap way around this can be found here. It basically teaches you to construct a wireless antenna out of some washers, bits of plastic, and a pringles can. Net cost is about $10 for two. Performance is comparable to units costing 15 times that.
