I'm traveling on business, and I just have to say....<br><br>Last night, I was at a hotel with free wireless high speed internet. It's always a 50/50 proposition: will it work? will the signal reach the room? Will the signal be strong enough?<br><br>But tonight....I am treated to the real deal: an ethernet jack on the wall. Plug in...and 3mbps of pure surfing and (legal) downloading ecstasy. <br><br>The whole WiFi thing is handy for checking mail at Starbucks or whatever....but for any serious computing, it just blows. Unless it's your own private network or something. <br><br>Long live the wire!<br><br>
Bah! In my daily travels I find all kinds of good, "free" WiFi networks provided by stupid people. Of course, those are usually found in densely occupied city areas... more dummies per square mile! <br><br>- alec
