I’ve never been very good from blogging consistently due to travel, work, etc. I have no excuse now, though. We’re driving 70MPH on I57 south, near Matoon in Central Illinois, and I’m on the Internet.
Work picked up a wireless data PCMCIA card for me from Verizon. It needed to be activated in Windows but worked very easily in Linux (Ubuntu Dapper). It looks like I need to rebuild the kernel to apply a patch to usbserial, but it’s at least a solid connection so far. I can IRC. I can IM. I even managed to install drivel and post this.
Once I have a few minutes to put together the notes I followed, I’ll post some configs and instructions.
