..you can contain that MW scale 2.4Ghz radiation so you don't
jam out mW scale 2.4Ghz WIFI, Bluetooth and cell phone etc
communications?  (Would make a nice revenge for my first ISP 
job though, we were WIFI-based and were jammed out of business 
by Telenor's home WIFI routers.)

  Scenarios always come in sets of three: 
  best case, worst case, and just in case.
