So Much For Travelblogging…

Not sure how many of you are familiar with a Windows Vista bug which makes it impossible to connect to the internets via public wifi. You can connect to the wifi network, just… not the internets.

Well, I have it. I could have sworn that I used to be able to connect from the Pittsburgh airport, but… not anymore.

I think it is time to set up a Windows XP partition – I am simply too overwhelmed by Vista’s brilliance, such that I fear I shall fly too high and crash violently back to Earth like Icarus.

Also, my flight’s delayed.

    It’s not a bug, it’s a feature!

    A possible cure here. It connects to the Internet just fine, and if you picked a laptop model that has native Linux driver support, it will work just fine in Pittsburgh International without having to use Ndiswrapper, which really is a pain. It supports dual booting, too.

    Anyway, have a nice trip.

    All I know about vista is lots of people hate it and are going back to XP and what I see in the latest Mac vs. PC commercials. Good liuck Eli.
