Make it a date night, watching '3 Guys in Drag Selling Their Stuff" ...
Diva, Lillian, and Tink have their work cut out for them as they try to raise money at a yard sale to make enough money to place the cremains of Diva's husband in a Faberge egg. Expect a little bit of slapstick, a bit of bawdy humor, a bit of an acid tongue, and it's all in a day's work. Oh, and a little part about the human condition....

West Virginia University today announced that they're the first University to make space of white space broadband (aka "Super Wi-Fi"), a technology that uses the spectrum freed by the migration to digital television. The University stated that the first leg of their white space deployment will involve delivering Wi-Fi access for students and faculty at the Public Rapid Transit platforms, with whole campus coverage to follow.
While standard Wi-Fi uses the 2.4 GHz radio frequency, Super Wi-Fi uses lower frequency TV radio signals — 54MHz to 698 MHz – which travel farther and propagate more effectively over hills and around obstacles such as trees. Maximum range for the signals appears to be about six miles, with a maximum speed around 10Mbps.
