James (didnt tell us where hes participating from or how he hears the show) – participating with the AskDave button on our site”I’m trying to access the Internet Wi-Fi from the church next door without knowing the password. How do I do that?”
James, you dont. Thats basically stealing from God. -cg
The point of that password is to keep people out, so this is a little bit like asking how do I use the living room of the house next door if I dont have the key.
Back in the day there were reasonably simple ways to crack WiFi passwords, but these days the encryption is better and thats no longer that easy.
You may still be able to find password cracking software online but dont expect it to necessarily work, and definitely dont expect it to be quick, it may take weeks if it finishes at all.
The most realistic way to get access to that network is to speak to someone at the church and see if theyll give you the password.
Lynette in Idaho: “How does the portable bidet work?”
The portable bidet from Brondell is about the size and shape of a water bottle. (Though you probably dont want to drink from it.) And its got a long nozzle on it with a spout on the end, to reach all the places.
According to the Brondell website:
There are 3 easy steps to using your GoSpa:
Fill GoSpa with cool or warm water and screw on the bidet nozzle.
Place finger over airlock on bottom of GoSpa to prevent leaking and turn over.
Point nozzle in the appropriate area, remove finger from airlock and squeeze GoSpa for a cleansing bidet wash.
