This is my inch worm. It is alive, but only in the elctronic sense of the word. If it was dead I would not receive the signals strong enough for my computer in the room where I work. We have quite thick walls, and needed something to back up the signals. It is a so-called Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) a network security standard to create a secure wireless home network. I am sure it is now quite clear. That is why I can blog almost everywhere, even in the bathroom, although I must admit I have never tried it.
