I used to have my one unencrypted, but too many people on trains
started using it which slowed it down for me.

On one occasion someone using a mac started using it, so I opened up
Pidgin and enabled the bonjour protocol, knowing that the Mac iChat
program supports it. I could then see in pidgin the person using my
wifi. I sent them a message along the lines of.. "Hello", "Yes, you
can use my wifi" :)

Yay open protocols.
