  • Mood:


Finally, after much goings back and forth with Verizon Wireless' "automated" activation lines (which, for reasons not known to humanity, kept transferring me to customer service reps), I have a working cellular broadband access card in my laptop and can browse, email, and suchlike wirelessly.

This is partially just pure geekiness, but it does have the practical benefits of (a) allowing me to get work done outside of WiFi hotspots and (b) getting me Net access that doesn't rely on connecting with client networks. (The latter is particularly important when the client is stuffy about security.)

The fact that I can, theoretically, surf for porn without worrying about corporate nanny filters is, of course, completely irrelevant.
