Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

Trussville, AL--Skating on the razor-thin leading edge of technology!-- Hampton Inn first to offer free Wi-Fi
Ryan Mahoney

The Hampton Inn in Trussville has become the first metro-area hotel to provide free high-speed wireless Internet access throughout its facility.

Other local hotels - such as the Embassy Suites or Tutwiler - offer free Wi-Fi service in some areas or paid access in all areas, according to the Wi-Fi Alliance, but only Hampton's is available without charge in all guest rooms, public areas and meeting rooms.

Up to 256 guests can use the network at once, connecting automatically through Wi-Fi enabled laptops or handheld PCs. The system was installed in August by Nashville, Tenn.-based Sboca Wireless Network and gives Hampton an edge over its competitors, says general manager Matt Markopoulos. [...]
Take THAT all you big city sorts!

This is truly a revolutionary thing, and you just can't begin to imagine what sort of effect it will have on my life!! Let's see...ahhhhhh. Hmm. Well, there's... No. Uhhhm, I could--well, no, not that, either. If I had two of those--hmmmm. No.

Well, I don't know.
