"Want some Lipitor with those fries?"Tell you the truth, I haven't been in a McDonald's in over eight years! I don't touch that crap.
I second that! I'd rather chew on my nails than eat Mc slop! If they learned HOW to put out a tolerable meal then they wouldn't have to suck you in with gimmicks!..then it's free for me. :lol:

Maybe.So if someone hacks into my home network (highly unlikely), does this mean I can have them arrested???
An Illinois man was arrested in January 2006 for piggybacking on a Wi-Fi network. David M. Kauchak was the first person to be charged with "remotely accessing another computer system" in Winnebago County. He had been accessing the Internet through a nonprofit agency's network from a car parked nearby and chatted with the police officer about it. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to a fine of $250 and one year of court supervision.
In St. Petersburg, 2005, Benjamin Smith III was arrested and charged with "unauthorized access to a computer network", a third-degree felony in the state of Florida, after using a resident's wireless network from a car parked outside
In Sparta, Michigan, Sam Peterson was arrested for checking his email each day using a cafe's wireless Internet access from a car parked nearby. A police officer became suspicious, stating, "I had a feeling a law was being broken, but I didn't know exactly what". The man explained what he was doing to the officer when asked, as he did not know that the act was illegal. The officer found a law against "unauthorized use of computer access", leading to an arrest and charges that could result in a five year felony and $10,000 fine. The cafe owner was not aware of the law, either. "I didn't know it was really illegal, either. If he would have come in [to the coffee shop] it would have been fine." He was eventually sentenced to a $400 fine and 40 hours of community service.
In 2007, Palmer, Alaska, 21-year old Brian Tanner was charged with "theft of services" and had his laptop confiscated after accessing a gaming website at night from the parking lot outside the Palmer Public Library, as he was allowed to do during the day.
I'd venture to guess this Michigan man is now well aware of his right to remain silent."A Michigan man has been fined $400 and given 40 hours of community service
for accessing an open wireless Internet connection outside a coffee shop."
If it would have been me, the subject of our chat would have been confined to the weather or sports.He had been accessing the Internet through a nonprofit agency's network from a car parked nearby and chatted with the police officer about it.

It will be interesting to see what kind of restrictions they put on their firewall. My wife recently spent a couple of days in the hospital and they provided free WiFi service. While I could check my email through my ISP by connecting directly through it, but I could not log on to my ISP's home page. My ISP is my telephone company so I guess I would have been screwed if I had wanted to pay my bill online!
Another place that I used to go to was a place called St. Louis Bread Company (which is also called Panera Bread Company in some parts of the country). They also provide free WiFi service. So I was sitting there one day and tried to check into one of the many handgun forums to use (yes, I do have other hobbies!) and it was blocked! I wrote a letter to their HQ expressing my displeasure over this and they said it was because they block some sites that they believe might have objectionable content.
Funny thing was I could check into my handgun sites on the hospital's WiFi!
I am sure McDonalds will have similar restrictions in place.
In and Out! That's - what's it's all about! :lol:I second that! I'd rather chew on my nails than eat Mc slop! If they learned HOW to put out a tolerable meal then they wouldn't have to suck you in with gimmicks!
