John and Dave come off the heels of a Cool Stuff Found show (and an interview show!) to get back to answering your questions. First, though, are the results of a bit of testing John and Dave did where they learned some interesting things about the way 5GHz networks perform on first-generation Time Capsules. Then it's onto your questions about email addresses, Time Machine backups and a free VPN for you to use.
