Come on in, people. Pull up a stool. Welcome back. First drink is on me. Maybe the next five, for that matter. I owe ya. We also have a vat of Red Sox chicken in the back that you can dive into. I don't even care if you're working. I won't tell the Boston media. We'll start with an apology. Sorry the bar has been closed for so long. I'm afraid our dormancy has chased you to other places like Applebee's or, even worse, other blogs. We had all kinds of problems in this joint with shoddy plumbing, rodent infestations (I'd still avoid the burgers if I were you)

Wireless networks are so flexible and easy to set up that they have become the de facto standard for home users who want to share files, printers or an Internet connection among two or more computers. Still, they're not perfect. Many consumers have trouble making them operate in various parts of the house. The worst connections seem to occur when the wireless router is in the basement, near the cable or DSL modem, and someone tries to log in with a laptop computer on the third floor. But sometimes it's hard to make a wireless network operate from one room to the next, thanks to steel beams, fluorescent lights and other network-hostile infrastructure.

If you've got electrical outlets in your walls, you're a potential customer of a handful of companies offering a fledgling service, high-speed Internet channeled over the nation's power lines. Rather than installing a cable modem or DSL telephone line, customers plug a power line modem into any electrical outlet. Until now, though, delivering broadband over power lines has been mostly experimental. Dr. Sanford Glazer, a periodontist and retired naval officer, jumped at the chance to try out the emerging technology in his Potomac home.

An unplanned inspection of Howard County's Circuit Court building has turned up a series of fire code violations - including exposed wires, overloaded outlets and storage too close to sprinkler heads - in the cramped, historic structure. Fire and risk management officials visited the building two weeks ago at the request of the sheriff's office to update the court's evacuation plan. But that visit turned into an inspection when a fire official noticed violations, said fire Chief Joseph Herr.

Lafayette Courts, the huge public housing project on the edge of downtown Baltimore, was a ghost town yesterday as demolition experts prepared to blow it up to make way for a new community.At noon today, the six desolate high-rise towers that were home to thousands of poor families for four decades are scheduled to collapse in to ruins.Seconds apart, in an orchestrated series of explosions, the 11-story brick and concrete buildings will tumble to the ground. If everything goes as planned, all that will be left within 20 seconds is a cloud of light brown dust covering five city blocks.
