    The cost analysis looks good on that idea:

    CHEAP yagi (i.e. Pringles "cantenna"): around 15 bucks each.

    Case of beer to persuade man in the middle to allow mounting of booster: 10-20 bucks (depending on brand and quality of the beer)

    Getting a geek to go out in public and talk to someone new: Priceless!

    bouncing signals

    Does anyone know if there is any way that i could bounce a signal from my house to downtown (about a mile). it is all uphill then flattens out a quarter mile later. I am wondering becuase i would like to be able to sit up at the tea haus with my laptop and still work on the internet, i currently have 3meg service from charter, any help would be apreciated.
