WiFi Booster Version 1.0 Written and published by George Lumayag on Oct. 16, 2012
A newly young resident once dreamt of assembling his own WiFi booster. He would want of sharing his Internet signal to the small village, hoping some villagers to do their research online if they have the computer, laptop, and mobile phone with WiFi built antenna. Finally, after months of hard work, and sacrifice, the man was able to make his homemade wifi booster. He showed his friends and family his new pride and joy and asked those close to him to access Internet for free. He loved the attention, the freedom and the pride of his accomplishment. He kept the homemade WiFi Booster well maintained. Actually, he took better care of it than himself. In a few months, folks started to associate him with his WiFi so much. They began to refer to him as, “The Guy with a WiFi.” Some remembered him before the WiFi booster. However, they didn’t care who he was as long as they were able to access Internet freely with his WiFi booster and take full advantage of his hospitality. The young man thought that life could be worse. “I’m happy and my friends and family are happy and that’s all that matters.” Eventually, he was known as “The Wonderful Guy with the homemade WiFi booster.” The man with it all!
Months quickly past and both man and his WiFi booster began to endure with version. In his heart of hearts he sadly realized that the WiFi booster version 1.0 wasn’t access-worthy as it used to be and that trying to keep it maintained in the fashion he had come accustom was becoming tedious work. Both small and large tasks were overwhelming and extremely time consuming. And as the WiFi booster began to give unstable signal, most of his maintenance went unnoticed. Ironically, he had just purchase a new parabolic disc and installed a WiFi antenna. He decided to use it for one final experiment… this time he accessed Internet alone by a passphrase. He thought he would have a new, exciting and very fast access to the net of trillion of documents without any traffic of data uploading and downloading. He set private configuration for a better Internet access for the rest of his life. He installed it at the top of the roof of his house. He browsed sites so fast and unnoticed.
One time a typhoon hit in the village and the parabolic dish was damaged. The WiFi booster version 2.0 could no longer be used. The man only sat in the corner and remembered his past experiment and reflected on his lost dream. After all, “What would my family and friends think?” Scrapping the damaged disc would be a failure. “To have anyone think I’m a failure would be a fate worse of my impending fate.” And, a commitment is a commitment, no matter how bad the consequences. “It’s what any good man would do, right?” So he went out and repaired his old version homemade booster. He configured it in public use and reused it. The village then accessed the free Internet and man’s true friends had gathered to thank him for all his generosity, sacrifice and love. As for his fair-weather friends they never asked of his experiments and went on with their lives enjoying the free WiFi access in the village.
