Photo Friday : Experimental

Photo Friday : Experimental
Tues 12.06.05 – After 10 whole weeks of struggling with internet connections, broken laptop, Trinity’s evil proxies (that won’t allow for SMTP, FTP that didn’t work, nor GoogleTalk, and dodgy Skype), and trips to the Central Internet Cafe on Grafton to get any client work done or to download emails or FTP without troubles, I decided to order a ripwave wifi device from Irish Broadband. Now the experiment begins.
The connection to IB’s wifi tower is iffy from my room, but I do have a 90kps connection with no restrictions. The phrase “no restrictions” even if at 90kps means more after 10 weeks of internet proxy hell than a big 1- 4 mbs ethernet connection to college with tons of restrictions. Now I experiment with internet purgatory…
Oh, to be back in the Internet heaven of unlimited 100mbs of Road Runner in my neighborhood in Orange. Yes, for the doubters, I clocked it and really got the speed they advertised.
