    I suggest the parent get there child to wear a Faraday cage on their head. Also I would hope the child is not allowed a mobile phone and the parent should not use one with in a good range of the child. I do hope the child room is free from any electrical gadgets to give then a clean RF environment.

    I recommend a double lining of Tin foil wallpaper too. Gene Hackman had the right idea in 'The Conversation', and he played a Trumpet, which is cool.

    Gone slightly o/t there.

    Will be great once all these complaints surface in new-build BSF schools that have gone 100% wireless. Who will win?

    christ the amount of wiring that i'd be forced to do, I would hate it!!! I remember wiring up 8 classrooms over summer, used up almost 2 miles of cable and lots of switches / repeaters!

    There was a 'Judge John Deed' episode devoted to this topic. At least mobile phones anyway...

    Great show!

    You can't get health problems from WiFi. A scientist in the US has offered $1,000,000 to someone who can prove that they can detect WiFi or have health problems caused by it. None of the people who claim to have these problems have passed a double blind test.

    I also read somewhere (cannot find link) that if somebody was "sensitive" to WiFi they would be in constant pain from mobile phone signals and all the other waves going about the place.

    Idiots.

    It's nonsense.

    These people make me really laugh - too much Daily Fail in their brains to digest any other possibilities. They will suffer more harm watching their LCD TV's, answering their mobile phones and drinking tea/coffee/alcohol/cola.

    However, to coincide with an earlier post, there have been proven incidents. Witnessed one myself last week, child fell over the laptop trolley's power cable and hit his head on the D-Link sitting on top

    Well, being honest I've started believing that none of these items can possibly be dangerous on their own - the danger exists only within the people using them.


    Tempted to go on about how all this used to be fields, and you could buy a packet of nuts without them warning that they may in fact, contain nuts, pots of coffee may, now careful here, be hot, and running with scissors might cut something faster

    Getting old and cynical? I am!
