Traveling as much as I do, and working wherever I go, I'm always looking for Internet connections (for my computer, not for me, thanks anyway).
Sometimes, in public places, I see a server called "Free Public WiFi," but it never seems to work. I can connect to it, and see a signal; I can't reach any websites through it.
Anyone know what this is? I'll research when I have some time, but I'd like to believe it's a placeholder for some future time when Internet access will be like highways, free and available to all.
Not that every highway is free, or available to all. Yesterday I took Dizzy out to Purcellville, to have the first step of this procedure at Blue Ridge Veterinary Hospital. This morning I'm headed back out to pick him up. (He'll have the second step on Wednesday night; so far, so good.) Anyway, the route to Purcellville takes me on not one but two toll roads, and one of those roads costs $3.90 each way at off-peak hours. Glad I don't commute from there.
