I was under the impression that Comcast and TWC got rid of residential
users providing free wifi to their customers.  Wasn't that some /. story
a while back?

It's sort of a funny issue.  On the one hand, residential users are
powering the cable company's wifi for their other customers with no
compensation.  On the other hand, a lot of their customers using others
wifi are likely to come under the sights of the RIAA/MPAA and their
racketeering cohorts.  No?
