Expediency

As much as I can be irritated by some of the people on Freecycle, it is a very, very, very good way to get rid of an entire (small) apartment full of furniture in a hurry. My mom and my aunt had no idea how they were going to get rid of my grandfather's furniture quickly so that they could vacate the apartment (the way the lease was set up, you pay for one week after you turn in the key). Within 90 minutes of posting on freecycle, I'd heard from about a dozen people who wanted the stuff.

In other news: it is still the case that none of my parents' neighbors have wireless networks that broadcast their SSID. I'm tethered to their (wired) router by an ethernet cable.
