They'll filter them out sadly. Or if one slipd through you'll be shown the door pretty quickly. Lost count of the amount of libraries I'm banned from because of that

This does not impress me. It seems like the same old 802.11 kind of stuff thats been around for some time. What I want learn more about is apples blue tooth. From what I gather it will support conecting to gprs to conect any where. (not just 802.11 friendly areas) But all that is a bit over my head.

WiFi for some, small British Flags for others.

I wish my local bar would get wifi. Unfortunately the owner thinks someone will be able to hack into his cash registers if he does it (all his employees are asking.)

Regarding the spillage ensuing, it did happen to me, my laptop, and a bottle of Carlsburg (Swedish beer?) I screamed like a little girl. The laptop was definately toast.
2003-03-08 07:47:35 PM  
i thought you people go to places like this to pick up girls, not to browser the internet.
2003-03-08 08:23:26 PM  
I never met a pub I didn't enjoy, eventually.

WiFi - the most retarded acronym ever devised.
Wireless Fidelity? WTF? It doesn't make one damn bit of sense.
2003-03-08 09:03:46 PM  
fidelity to what? drinking and the computer?
2003-03-08 09:34:31 PM  
how do you pronounce WiFi?
as in wifey ? :) or Wee Fee
2003-03-08 10:05:38 PM

cool, this wifi sounds too close to Wireless Infidel heh

TheSammo: Carlsberg is a danish brewery... and while their elephantbeer is rather good, their pilsner tastes much like catpiss - just like Rigness (which is, as y'all know, a 'wegian brewery).
