Wow, that sounds great. It would be perfect if Chris could acquire one of
those old 11/70 equipment racks hanging around DuPont Hall to mount the
equipment on ...

My situation is obviously different from Chris's, but I'm getting more and
more interested in the area of mobility/wirelessness since I split my time
among five different places (current apartment for sleeping/eating; old
apartment I'm using as a home office until I can put it on the market;
beach house in the summer; work; and business school). Got a laptop and
digital cellphone this summer and I'm looking into a cellular modem (anyone
have any experience with those?) My guess is that by this time next year I
won't even have a landline phone of my own any more. Since it's my choice
and not forced on me by work, I rather enjoy the idea that I can be in
touch with the world from anywhere I want, including my favorite coffee bar
on Eighth Avenue. Anyone else have any experience along these lines?
