Republicans can't do WiFi...

Now, this isn't a political blog - but this story was not to be sniffed at...

Apparently the real reason why there isn't any WiFi at the RNC isn't security, or the threat of Democratic crackers. It's an age old problem: the RNC is full of lusers, and the company that was handling technology for the event didn't want to have to cope with the tech support from conventioneers who couldn't read simple log-on instructions...
"If people have trouble with wireless, what's the first thing they say?" said David Shatzkes, whose company is managing the convention's technology operations. "They say, 'There's something wrong with the network.' Those are the words we absolutely do not want to hear."
