Chinese companies and Universities are some of the biggest customers of the company I work for. We sell products made by Americans of mostly American made materials. The people in this company all work for wages well above minimum wage, even the lowest paid. China gets a couple of bucks from the shirt I buy that was made in China, and we get thousands of dollars for each one of our products we sell to China. And they sometimes buy a hundred at a time.

We manufacture pressure and temperature instrumentation for all types of R& D. Our end users are Wind Tunnels, Wind Turbine manufacturers, F1 Race cars, Ford, GM and Chrysler, Gas Turbine manufacturers, etc. China and India are buying our equipment like candy at Christmas. We were barely affected by the recession. Business in the US stinks.

I doubt that using wifi had anything to do with hm going back to prison.

I'm thinking parole violation. Any charges stemming from the "theft of services" would be incidental.......

Maybe the WiFi theft didn't put him in prison but it sure sounded good though. Gets your attention.

I own a coffee shop, I provide free wifi. I know darn well people stop out side check their email, surf for whatever. I don't care,
They are prospective customer for all I know. Most people will come in and at least buy coffee. I have signs posted at the bigger table where they like to spread out, that at lunch the table is reserved for two or more customers buying lunch. It's hard to believe someone would actually come out to someone's car and tell them to stop stealing wifi.

Hey, I'm on parole for killing a child molester, telephone solicitor, door-to-door alarm salesman, a couple Stealers and the person responsible for that stupid, singing, "Need Cash Now" commercial, but let's get back "On Topic"(Did you ever think you would hear that from the Dunner?).

Anywho, are there more RVs at your local Walmart now that the spending season is over?

Before I joined this site, I went to Walmart maybe twice a year. Now that I have an RV, I realize that going there during travels will almost be a necessity.

Is that back on topic enough?
