That's OK.  I purchased a WAP from someone in Virginia and now I can't
get the Google App on my phone to admit that I'm still at home and not
in Broad Run.

If anyone has any idea how to "unglue" a MAC address from an incorrect
location in the guts of Google (I've done the skyhook thing
http://www.skyhookwireless.com/submit-access-point), please let me know
(this is an invitation for a followup).

When I do still catch the odd glimpse, it's peripheral; mere fragments
of mad-doctor chrome, confining themselves to the corner of the eye.
