I've Been In Wifi Cafes For The Last 7 Hours

Sun Jun 18, 2006 5:05 am

The first place was a great restaurant right around the corner from my house. I went there at 3pm. My girlfriend is abroad for the weekend making this weekend one dull obstacle to pass.

After a meal, 2 beers, and 2 football matches, and a whole lot of browsing it was a bit too much so I walked on to another of my favourite places, less than 100 meters away (Blaustern, famous place in the 19th district in vienna) for their great dinners only to discover that the wi-fi connection still works!!!!! I am not sure from where, very possibly from the first place, but anyway I am online again.. killing time is easy with technology..

What about your experiences spending afternoons eating, drinking, working from restaurants?

I've never been able to work out how wi-fi works. And the lap top weighs more than the PC so we dont take it with us! lol! Big grin

Otherwise, I'll read to pass the time

That's because you haven't switched over from coal-powered to the new-style gas laptops. You should look into it. And your idea of a high-speed network is putting the bonfires on the hilltops closer together  Smile

I only just got a wifi equiped laptop, and its great - works everywhere - it's amazing the number of wifi networks available for use. I was sitting at a cafe the other morning, waiting for the bank to open, and was browsing the web while I sipped my cafe-creme. How bohemian, and yet road-warriorish !

I spent about two hours in a café a couple of weeks ago... drinking a couple of cappucinos while my notebook was logged into our VPN via the café's WLAN - thus allowing me to keep an eye on the servers I'm responsible for. Big grin

I like technology...  bigthumbsup   bouncy

Those are much easier on your back as well... Big grin ... or you could always get a bag with wheels for it...  Wink

I am - me and my laptop and my drag-aboard wheelie-bag, living the jetset it's-Tuesday-it-must-be-Avianca lifestyle. How it exhausts me.

 Confused

You mean this? http://www.classiccmp.org/dunfield/pc/h/zts386.jpg

 Smile

unless you mean those recent big screen models. I find it crucial to keep the weight figure in check when buying a new laptop.  Smile
