WiFi Stories

So Ubuntu keeps a list of networks that it had connected to before. You can basically view all those wifi and wired internet connections you had in the past, by
$  ls /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections

I have a long list in my computer. In addition, my phone and Nexus 7 have their own long list. I have even forgotten the origin of some of these system connections - when did I connect to these WiFi networks!
