Looks like the topic for today is wireless! Here's an email I received from Matt Daimler that he sent while on a plane to Europe... From: Matt Daimler Sent: Thursday, January 20, 2005 9:13 PM Subject: FirePass @ 33,000 Feet

Well the future is now I guess, I'm currently north of Winnipeg, Canada at 33,000 feet on a 54G in-plane Wifi Connection with a FirePass session active. Theres even a regular AC power plug at my seat so that I can stay connected for the rest of this 9 hour flight. Pretty darn cool. Heres a snapshot of my bandwidth, were using satellite so you can see the connection is technically choppy though its transparent to me (that compression is helping ;-) Cheers, -Matt

Matt attached a graphic that shows just how bursty the satellite connection is...if you're interested in seeing it, let me know via email. Pretty cool stuff!
