hi, great article! i'm pleased to hear you found Consume.net access so easy in London.

as a member of Consume, i'd just like to point out one small correction - we're not 'closed' about our code - just about all of use run GNU/Linux or BSD boxen, but we use the wifi tools already provided in the distros... there are also some snippets of code on the Consume.net site, i believe.

thanks & bw

Come back, the rest of us are (quick look) around Aug 11, 2002.Hold on a minute ... maybe its me, maybe I'm behind the times, left behind :(All these 'commercialise/kill the internet' laws leave me wondering - are governments an overall liability to the human race? i mean, seriously ...
