$10 freedoom: Emulating wireless
80211b is so cool. It sure is, but coolness carries a $500 price tag at the moment (base stattion, PCMCIA card, Danish prices). Being a poor student, my computing needs from the couch, bed, kitchen or dining table are meet the low-tech way: A really long cable!
It's a highly recommendable $10 solution that works suprisingly well within the confinement of my 60m2 apartment. Get a cable that matches the color of your walls, and it doesn't even look that geeky to visitors. You could buy a iPod instead and still have change to spare.
