I had to do a lot of running around downtown today, so I took the new netbook with me so I could try out my city's net access at the public library. It couldn't be easier. I think because I have an alternative DNS configured on this machine, I was not even shown the Terms of Service screen when I connected. Would not using the library DNS bypass that? The library connection is strong and smooth. It's fun having this little netbook with so many graphics and net tools I love already on it.
A few people have walked by and glared at me. Do they think I'm a dumbass? Do they like the netbook? Maybe they want to steal it.
OK, time to have lunch. More later from home. By the way, I checked out a radical book while I was here. Damn the thoughtcrime! 😀
