started (or at least went through a phase early on) as a citadel board
of some kind; I asked if anyone had more information on that, as I find
that era of BBS history fascinating. I'd never heard of citadel at all
until a few years ago when I was looking for something new to do with my
spare server while reminiscing about my childhood.
I originally intended to set it up on said server to act as a local
electronic meeting place while we were deployed to Afghanistan; the
Internet access sucked, so a local, low-bandwidth solution seemed ideal.
Unfortauntely, the server itself died somewhere en route; it wouldn't
POST and I couldn't find a monitor anywhere to even see where it was
It was taking a lot of space in my 7' by 7' plywood room, so I pulled
the drives and took it out to the range, where it was executed for
cowardice in the face of the enemy.

Today I happened to plug it into my laptop to charge and instead of turning on the wi-fi hotspot, I turned on the USB tether mode. Since I was booted into Linux Mint, it Just Worked. Color me surprised. It seems to be much snappier than when I use it as a wi-fi hotspot, too, for what that's worth.
None of this overcomes the fundamental issue, which is that I'm stuck at the airport for another four hours before boarding.
I've never been to an airpot that provided free wifi. Always had to pay for it, if it was even that good.
And tonight's Bonus Question is...
Lehigh Valley International Airport's FAA designator is "ABE."
[IG - you are *not* allowed to answer!]
Because Lincoln flew out of that airport to get to Gettysburg.

Was it once known or merge with Allentown/Bethlehem Airport?
Zooer nailed it. The first time I was there was back in 1967 and it was then called the Allentown-Bethlehem-Easton Airport hence the ABE.
This lady was collosally stupid.
She's 60 years old, and likely very guilty of insurance fraud. She elected to skip out on her trial, and sent a taunting tweet to the district attorney.
Which they used to help track her down and drag her into jail, after finding her guilty in absentia.
Interestingly, many stories have been removed with a notice that the AP retracted the story. Boston.com still has it up, though (figures).
Tried to paste one of the messages, but webcit keeps crashing when I do.
I still misspelled 'collosally'. Heh.
