One for Andrew on Granny Buttons I recall he evangelised about common shared internet and he said he would make his wireless open access in his new abode.
Well if you are a BT customer you can subscribe to
BT and FON
This allows you (or BT) to set aside a link into your wireless in exchange for being able to use other peoples wireless who share the same vision. Bit like file sharing but for Wifi use. I think it is a great idea and have joined and opened up just a little more of the information superhighway on the A6 in Derby !!
Anyone who lives near a canal like Andrew should consider this as it will provide a piggyback wifi option. I'll be trying the system out tomorrow as I'm currently engaged in Jury service and the only wifi I can get in the court building (jury room not the court of course) is a FON wireless signal.
Heard and seen it all!
