traffic jam on the street net and goodbye adsense

This morning I had a fantastic coffee but frustratingly slow wifi experience in Boston Tea Party, connected via street net – it went from fast to slow to standstill, although the signal was fine.

Caffe Nero (the one directly next to Caffe Gusto)

Today I find myself in Caffe Nero on the triangle. I’d always discounted it before because I didn’t realise it had an upstairs bit and I didn’t like the idea of using my laptop downstairs with people queing for coffee looking over my shoulder.

I think my “readers” are getting a bit confused when I jump between posts about coffee and posts about geekery…. Read more »

Mind you i’ve only tried a couple so far… archived comments Tried the watershed, no VPN access, or the Blue Juice Bar? Dave Irwin 2006-09-07 18:57:09 yep – i’ve tried… Read more »

wifi breakfast (or at least coffee) nirvana in Clifton

I have hatched a plan to satisfy both my urge for expensive coffee variations and the idea of wifi breakfast nirvana on park street in clifton, Bristol. Or near park street, as it seems that there aren’t actually many places to get breakfast on park street at 8.30. My plan is to do this once… Read more »
