The year is 2011. Last week my DSL provider died for 6 hours and my
family was unable to get to the Internet. A friend suggests I try
Suparoute11 (tm), I download the program and install on my Xbox 5.

A few seconds later it uses my Xbox's 802.66 wireless port to contact
several other people running the program within a few blocks of my house.
Options are displayed on my screen, one guy's hub is offering a "backup
10Mb/s home link, tunneled and advertised to TIX" across a large cable

My son tells me that is what I want so I setup a payment of $5 per month
to him. In 10 minutes from start to finish my house's /54 is "multi-homed",
whatever that means.
