I'm going to Paris tomorrow!! WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOO....
so it will be pretty wiffy.
I thought BOTH of you had left.
yeah, am taking laptop to Paris... I have third interviews to coordinate, I have parisians to stay in touch with to organise nights out, and clubs etc to look up etc.. the hotel has wifi.. it's the 'INFORMATION AGE', dudes - get with the P R O G R A M M E...
the business class bit has plug sockets. But i've never seen anyone accessing the internet whilst on the train. I could be wrong though
Paris seemed to be full of happy drunken, kilt-clad, Scots last night
I currently live there. Whilst making my way home from seeing Yo la Tengo last night, two different groups of Scots asked me for directions to the red light district. Most amusing
I'm told Cabaret and Batofar for Sat night are good.. but am very willing to hear more from you!
If your travelling buisness class then there are wireless lounges at each end but not on board I think. If you are going for fun then no.
I use them to stock up on magazines, newspapers and packets of shortbread biscuits
+ a few bottles of leffe
Fuckers. It's something ridiculous like £9.95 for 24 hours (!) or £2.50 for 30 mins.
Seriously. WHAT THE FUCK? I've just paid you STUPID money for this cunting ticket. Give me free WiFi you tremendous bastards.
read a book.
and I had a book.
My point was that if you're going to supply WiFi on trains then make it free or at least make it a reasonable cost. Why a 24 hour rate or a half-hour rate? Why not just have a rate for your entire journey? Ridiculous.
it's something to get worked up about.
I can get to the shift key with my little finger. It's no great loss of energy.
If I have my laptop it's to do website programming and stuff which I don't need the web for; when I'm out and about I normally only want to look up things to help me out there and then which would take ages to load on my phone or which my phone might not render.
So there's no way I'd bother to pay money for too much time.
compared to how much you pay, I wouldn't call it 'free'. :D
