Yeah, I found when I asked the question about borrowing friends' 
networks while in the US, they didn't understand the question. I 
remember even in early days, when we connected our colleges, we 
didn't worry either, except for carriage capacity and slowdowns. 
Everyone got an account at no charge -- ever. We couldn't figure out 
how this form of communication could be 'free', but we had to pay for 
long distance phone use. There's no mystery as to why VOIP was 
developed. What is it about 'free' you don't understand? ;-)

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or 
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
