comment What are the risks of connecting a MacBook to an insecure wireless network?
Great question. The more people know the risks, the better.

comment What are the risks of connecting a MacBook to an insecure wireless network?
A good example of when this might bite you: Let's imagine you go to your favorite coffee shop. The owners are so giving that they didn't set a password on their wireless network. This also means that someone using codebutler.com/firesheep might hijack or ruin your account for one of the sites you frequent.

Thanks for satisfying my curiosity! Of course, the link aggregation thing looks cool :)

comment How can I type or input Unicode characters using a code point on the iPhone?
Thanks for the comment Phillip. Where is it documented that "full Unicode set in the keyboard doesn't exist"? How did you arrive at this conclusion? Much appreciated!

comment How can I type or input Unicode characters using a code point on the iPhone?
Thanks for the suggestion, but I'm hoping there's a different, perhaps more technical way to natively enter via some keyboard combination a hexadecimal or some such format to output characters in the basic multilingual plane, and perhaps in the Unicode code space beyond.

comment How can I type or input Unicode characters using a code point on the iPhone?
A "code point" aka "code position" are just the technical terms used by unicode.org unicode.org/glossary Basically its the same thing as a unique ID, but specifically integer. The most common encoding I've worked with represents code points in hexidecimal.

@Kyle Cronin: Just out of curiosity, and hopefully to learn something new, what does "ID number" refer to in the title edit, and how is it related to the terminology "code point"? Thanks for reopening!

Dori, I see that you closed this as an exact duplicate, when in fact the question is more specific than simply entering symbols, rather my question has to do with the ability to input Unicode characters without the assistance of some other app. For example, the Mac OS allows a user to type ALT + 4-digit-hex if the keyboard is set to "Unicode Hex Input". Would you please reopen it since an answer might address multilingual concerns not limited copy/paste symbols? Thank you!
