On East Coast train to London heading down for BETT and Wifi is ok but intermittent. Not sure your 3G card would be any better though!

I feel like Alice in Wonderland!
Here I am on a train with MAINS electric !!!!
(I'm on my Vodaphone 3G dongle - just left Warrington - next stop the Big City!)
How things change!
I remember being cutting edge with a Tosh 4000 series laptop and carrying spare set of batteries (2 in fact) so I could last the journey from Banbury to London and everyone looking at me wondering what it was ) -
Now I'm the hick from the sticks.
Do they have drop down screens - there is a set of controls between the seats but I don't want to press anything in case I get charged!
I think I've just had my first tilt!!!!1

Getting 1.1Mbs according to speedtest
Or course I'ver had a couple of dropouts.
Down side of this is that one of my schools is emalling me a spreadsheet so I can sort out the page breaks

I wish to complain to Mr Vodaphone.
His 3G service don't work in tunnels
Mind you - I don't understand why we went in a tunnel - I thought it was all flat down south
PS GPS doesn't seem to work on trains so I only know where I am to 1700 metres (well I'm actually in seat 53 coach B but you know what I mean!)

Yeah, just ordered myself a T-Mobile dongle with 3 month pre-paid so I can use my personal laptop at work during breaks and when our wonderful filtering service blocks support sites

No, its that word that we don't like to mention as it gets certain members really excited and drags threads off topic and onto matters of starch, perfect seams on them, what type is best, shape of the sole plate etc......

the controls between the seats no longer do anything - sorry :-)
