Yet another WiFi network (yawn)

Another WiFi network appeared in iStumbler this morning, which brings the total to ten. There were two (mine included) back in 2001 when I moved in, and four last summer. I'm actually hooking into private networks from across the road.

I was monitoring my wifi neighborhood to check if the latest Airport Update 2007-001 solved my MBP airport issues, while the C2D airport problems thread on Apple Discussions gets longer and longer.

Update: just when I tried to post this entry, the network dropped. Drats.
