    Well, I gave up posting on this forum for lent but have sadly given in, nevermind. I have locked myself out of my house and my mum won't be back for another hour (So i won't break in) Luckly I had my laptop and my phone with me. Armed with wireless I am sitting on my front door step happily using my wireless router! It's lovely outside, not too hot not too cold, a rareity for england. I should do this more often! (go on thw web outside that is, not lock myself out of the house) Just hope my battery lasts!!

    Moderators - Feel free to delete this thread, just though I would share.

    I did that a couple of times. I would drag my laptop outside and sit under the tree. It was nice. Although in my neighborhood, flashing that I have an abundance of technology is a good way to get my house pilfered.

    How splendid! I would love to sit outside (not today, though, since it's a bit cloudy and drizzly), but loitering or sitting on the stairs at my complex is prohibited...not to mention that the smokers smoke around there so it's not the freshest of places. I guess I'll have to stick with just opening the blinds and windows in my office on the sunny days....

    I've been seen a few times sitting on a nice spot on the edge of a wood (about 1.5 miles away from my house), picking the 6th Form's WiFi with a cantenna :) Tis a good place - it's pleasant, there's good WiFi, and it's in the sorta place that's accesable, but you aren't going to get anyone mugging you

    My brother and I take our PowerBooks outside whenever it's warm and sunny enough. We have a deck and a porch and everything and our wifi covers it all (thanks to me *cough*) except for out by the garage.. which would be a cool place to sit.

    No one's going to mug us here, thankfully..

    Don't the muggers know by now that people using Mac's are bad S.O.B.s?

    As soon as it stop raining here in Oregon (it will probably stop in June, at which point it will become unbearably hot until the end of September, when it will start raining constantly again until June) I'm going to figure out how to put together our hammock, then sit in it with my new macbook, assuming it arrives before June, even though it was supposed to be here 6 days ago.


    Until then, I remain, along with all of Oregon, very, very pale.

    You mean when it's not like it has been the last few days...I thought we were all gonna die when I saw that solid line of red and purple coming at the area last night on the radar.

    Anyway, apparently we've got some kind of industrial-strength -.11G router in our house, because the things in my basement and I can get a clear signal on the second floor of my house, or on the very edge of the property...so I use my laptop outside all the time.

    Yeah, I have to agree. It's nice to be outside reading MacRumors (well apart from the fact that I'm having to use a dodgy Dell laptop and can hardly see anything because of the sun!)

    Anyway, hope that this is finally the end of winter - it's been going on long enough!
