infected connected
I’ve mentioned how enamored I am by Dirty Laundry‘s dance track “Disco Infected”, along with its cover art.

So much so that, when it came time this week to refresh my wireless router’s SSID, I picked that track title for the name: “DiscoInfected”. As good as any other tag, I figured.

Until I noticed how closely that mashed-together name resembles “Disconnected”.

Not really a problem, but as I glanced that label on my iPhone’s list of available wi-fi networks, it did make me do a double-take. Maybe it’s close enough to a failed-connection notification that it’ll dissuade unwelcomed leeches from trying to hack in. They’d need the password anyway, but every little bit of deterrence helps.
