So I'm away from home for work. Staying at a hotel. It's a generally positive experience.
have a few issues. The internet sucks. Really, really sucks. I've
been using wireless, which is not password protected but requires you to
click agree to their terms of conduct or whatever. For those of you
unfamiliar with the process, after you connect to the network, your OS
will usually tell you that you don't have an active connection to the
internet. No apps or services--Outlook (which I don't use), Dropbox,
uTorrent, Steam--can connect to the internet.
have to open your browser and attempt to visit a web page so the hotel
network can divert you to the aforementioned click-wall. This presents
some issues, because serving a different web page than the one requested
by the user is the foundation of many malware attacks, and Firefox
won't have it (either by itself out of the box, or with help from
NoScript, I'm not sure). It won't let me see the clickwall, because it
knows the internet, and smells MALICIOUS BEHAVIOR.
