Saw this story here in town yesterday...

ST. PAUL, Minn. - A 46-year-old former computer technician from Minnesota was jailed for 18 years Tuesday for hijacking his neighbors' Wi-Fi network in a bizarre revenge plot, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported.

Barry Ardolf pleaded guilty last December to using his computer skills to steal his neighbors' identities and then attempting to destroy their careers and reputations.

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it ot pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past, I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.
