The Things We'll Do for a Good Connection

Down in Rhode Island for the weekend, Heidi had a few meetings so I took the day off and brought the kids down.

The Holiday Inn Express in Warwick is pretty nice (strictly speaking of the indside, Warwick itself is a bit industrial for my taste), but the wifi is a bit spotty. In fact, when i was looking for a place to eat I found that the best wifi connection was 6' off the ground near the front door of the room. Request a page and then hold the laptop up in homage to the wifi God and beg for a successful page load.

I've since discovered that if I sit in the chair near the bathroom door and face sideways I can get respectable signal, but my neck, arms and body are telling me it might not be worth it.
