Days away from attending the biggest electronics show, I’m being stripped from one of the most basic of technologies, internet access. Due to family reasons, I’m moving to Hastings, a rural town 50km away from where I live at the moment and almost 100km away from the Melbourne international airport. It also happens to be Christmas, when everyone has an excuse not to work. The only internet option is ADSL, which optimistically speaking, can only be connected in weeks.
That means I’m going to be stuck with local library internet access. You’re limited to 1 hour a day and only Internet Explorer 6. Oh it’s going to be an agonizing week until CES.
Speaking about CES, if you would like to meet up, please send me an email (which might hopefully be read). But otherwise, I’m going to be at the Microsoft Vista Lab, Bloghaus and the Microsoft viral campaigns. Spot the asian guy!
Happy holidays and happy new year! Thank you for reading and supporting me this year.
Update: I’ve found myself an unsecured WiFi access point. Together with a free VPN solution called Hotspot Shield from Anchorfree, I’m going to be using this until ADSL gets connected. It’s not so bad after all.
