     I'm used to encountering hackers when using the wifi at the local coffee 
shop, but this morning he/she/they were exceptionally aggressive, so much so 
that I packed everything up and went home to do a boot scan on that machine and 
use the dialup for the other machine.  On the wifi I couldn't get a stable 
connection for more than a couple of minutes at most.

     This hacker actually interfered with my battery charging, causing the 
indicator to say that I had just 16% for a very long time.  When I started it 
back up at home I had 56%.

     Hacking on public wifi systems is becoming increasingly serious, and I 
would just love to have some sort of software that would retaliate by detecting 
hackers and uploading a virus into them that would do them serious damage, such 
as locking out their hard drive or even wiping it clean.  Anything such as that
