I'm afraid I did it to myself! I subscribe to the AT&T\\\\ Cingular
"EDGE" service[1], which comes with a little PCMCIA card that plugs
into my laptop, so I don't even need a WiFi-enabled coffeeshop to
service my "comp.lang.lisp" jones...  ;-}  ;-}


p.s. With a good signal, I get ~240 Kb/s sustained download & ~100 Kb/s
sustained upload, which is quite good, but it has *terrible* RTT (latency)
of a half-second or more. Makes editing... "interesting". [Full-duplex
ASR-33, anyone?]
