Last night was the March meeting of the Greater Boston FoxPro Users Group. Excellent meeting!

Spent a few self-indulgent moments listening to my favorite radio station — WBUR — playing through RealPlayer on my laptop. The only thing was, the laptop wasn’t wired. It’s using an 802.11 radio signal to receive the streaming signal from my wired LAN, which in turn is using TCP/IP over my cable TV cable. Thousands of dollars of equipment and technology to listen to a radio station 30 miles outside its broadcast zone. You gotta wonder.
