    Been having fun, have we?

    Some people like to turn off radio transmitters they don't need. We don't know yet how well our specimen react to them just yet, so why not provide us waaaay too careful family men with an Off switch?

    The proverbial 'Off Switch' ... the wives of us family men are hoping for one too!

So the wifi is still there but not doing much. Every so often it keeps track of whats out there and if any body wants to connect.
    I'm pretty sure this is incorrect. The radio may still be on (I have no way to tell), but it's certainly not connected to the network. If you were to set up a Touch from scratch with a wired connection then it wouldn't even have credentials to connect wirelessly. Plus, the wireless and wired interfacs use the same MAC address, so I don't know how it would work in any case.

    I just ran a little test, changing from a wireless to a wired connection (so the wireless credentials may still be stored somewhere). As soon as the Touch connected to the wired network it was immediately dropped from the list of connected clients shown on my wireless access point.

    yeah - I missed that bit... so waves accumulate do they... funny that, I thought they just passed through, like a... like a ... WAVE!

    X-rays do NOT "accumulate" - unlike mercury in the blood stream!. This is total BS. What actually happens is that the chance of spontaneous cell mutation increases with increased exposure. It's a probability thing.
    You want to see the signal path BEFORE it gets onto a CD/vinyl...it ain't what you'd call minimal...

    But...music waves accumulate in my head and I consider my head to be a part of my body. At least I can often remember them later if they have passed through my head at least once.

    However, I can't say I've so far remembered any WiFi waves...

    Now I wonder what prolonged exposure to Wagner will do to me.

    "...and I (as a physisist)..."

    I should have included that too, for added humor.

    That's because they killed those particular brain cells along the way. You shouldn't worry about it though, since you will of course forget all about this by tomorrow...
