I figured out how to use my BB Pearl as a modem for my laptop. internet just about anywhere. Including this dealership while I wait for my truck to be fixed*. What's really dumb is that there is a wireless network here for customers to use, but it doesn't work.


*with my luck, I bet the service techs will say they found no problems with my truck.

just make sure your current package includes use of your BB for this purpose. i found out the hard way that Sprint was not so agreeable when i did this.

Only ten fucking households showed up so I got the shaft. In response I'll be real stiff with assholes that don't follow the rules. Car's towed, yard maintenance billed to people who won't keep there grass cut and leaves cleaned up, etc, etc.

start a war and invade another neighborhood :fly:

I got a 70, but I think that's due to me NOT doing a lot of the negative things as opposed to doing most of the "good" things a little 1930's wife should do.

How can they tell? It's not like I'm going to be torrenting on this connection, at sub 200kbit speeds. I barely even tough the 5GB of bandwidth USCC offers on their "unlimited" plan.

I <3 my thinkpad t41. True, I wish it had a Windows key, as I use that keyboard shortcut for a lot of stuff. One thing I don't like about my laptop is the screen. Reallly dark, even indoors. Outdoors it's pretty much impossible to use in sunny or cloudy days.
