I feel like a techno hipster right now. I’m visiting a friend in Eugene for the holiday. Pulled out my laptop just now to work on a few things before we go out, and on a whim I decided to see if I could connect with some random wireless network in the neighborhood. Whaddya know, there is one! Kind of slow, though.
Posting from Common Grounds using the new laptop and their free wireless network.
I am sitting in a window seat at my favorite coffee house in Lexington, Common Grounds. It’s just down the street from an apartment I used to live in, although I didn’t spend nearly as much time here then as I do now. Go figure. As I write this, I’m waiting for some folks to show up for a meeting here. It’s a great place to meet with small groups of people, and now that Lexington has a smoking ban, there’s even more room for a pleasant, non-smoking experience. Anyway, that’s all I’m going to write for my first post using a wireless network. I have a much longer tale to tell that will require its own entry.
Some of my tech envy has been abated.
Yesterday I was able to connect with the wireless network at the radio station. Yeah! Turns out, I should have read the instructions. My laptop has a button that I’m supposed to push before it will detect wireless networks. D’oh.
