We found out yesterday that our IT folks got a grant to convert the whole campus to wireless connectivity. That'll be so nice <br><br>Even nicer for my colleague who lives right across the street and will probably be able to cancel her ISP and surf fro free from home.<br><br>

that's great. we've had a wireless campus for about a year with parts being wireless for many years now. i always make sure i have a charged battery when we have faculty meetings and the connectivity sure makes the time more bearable. the funny thing is that i have PC using colleagues who have had mucho trouble with connecting while our mac colleagues have not had a single request for help. os x. <br><br>----<br>"even if we get bin Laden or Zawahiri now, it is 2 years 2 late.

Wow, that's great. How big is that campus? I can't see the whole campus at the university of Arizona being covered... but I suppose its very possible to do.<br><br>

It's 118 acres--not too small.<br><br>And Sean, I'd love to be able to surf at faculty meetings, but unfortunately I'm the minute-taker <br><br>Actually, it's something I enjoy doing, not the taking of the minutes so much, but the composing of the draft of the minutes.
