Certainly is. It's also the technology you'd use for sitting outside
someone else's company and poking around their unsecured wireless
network, but I never said that. :)

More to the point, it's something that you could use at home; just
throw a wireless card into a machine on your network and then your Z is
online anywhere in the house...
