Coffee Tables for Sale or Rent


What do indigent homeless alcoholic computer geeks do to setup office? Rent a coffee table at your local Wi-Fi café for $1.98. A friend asked if I would update his laptop on-line, so I agreed. However, he couldn't be with me so I had to lug both laptops, his and mine, to the Café. Since I only have one Wi-Fi adapter, I connected both laptops together using Cat 5 network cables to a Linksys mini-switch. One laptop shares the other's wireless Internet connection. Add to that the external CD-RW drive and I'm good to go.

Now I'm downloading music, burning CD-Rs, running Windows Update, and writing this post. I felt so guilty, I had to buy a sandwich for $5.95. I now have $33.00 to my name.

(Wheels-O-Mind turning...) Beats the John J. Hill Library's Cybrary censorship and one hour limitation. Can't complain about the view either.
