Wireless, Topeka style.

We're at the Holiday Inn in Topeka, Kansas. Here are the instructions for connecting to their wireless internet service. Tell me what's wrong with this picture.

Wireless Access:
1. Make sure your laptop is powered down.
2. Plug your laptop in with the Internet cable located on your desk.
3. Power your laptop on.
In other news, in Missouri west of Columbia near Kansas City, we saw a sign that announced "U.S. Submarine Veterans Highway." In Missouri. Submarines. More info here.

Technically, that's a cable you were using. Not a wire. Your hotel is apparently run by a bunch of rules lawyers.

Oh, and BTW, we loved having you. :)

Obviously their corporate usage rules demand that valuable hotel cables do not get moved willy-nilly by guests.

Your lpatop on the other hand - iot was made to bemoved.

Makes perfect sense. To someone.

Actually, they do have a wireless connection. It's to the Starbucks next door. They are just "borrowing" a little bandwidth.
