free wireless!

(Reasons New Orleans is cooler than your city part N.)

Just noticed the fancy new city wireless is online.
60% signal inside of my apartment uptown by the river,
it's not too bad for free. It's by no means superfast,
but the latency isn't too bad. I'd have to do keepalives
with SSH though, I think, to really use it.

For my local friends, look for the "FeatherByEarthLink"
ssid. Anyone else have it? Posting from it now.

Hmm. Maybe they're starting at the river and working towards the lake.

Whenever it covers Rue I will be happy, because they have way too many people on laptops for the bandwidth there.

Usually when I'm at Rue I just jump on the Puccino's network.

you're right, that is cool. and i'm loving your music lately!

Ray: The Puccino's network doesn't reach the back of Rue I don't think. Usually I head to Urban Cup if I need wireless, Rue has been math homework central all semester for me.

Eddie: Thanks. I've been slipping back into finding music lately.
