I'm in a coffeehouse downtown...as close as it's possible to get to inner-city, around here. I came into town about three hours ago to ride the free wifi at The Beanery...our wifi was predicting '40 hours' for a software download [CAD program 3ds Max]. Got ensconced in a window seat at The Beanery and it said 1 hour :) I also took advantage of the fast connection for some file-sharing with a buddy, and sent a video which would have taken HOURS at home....now I'm uploading the same video to Facebook. This really is a blistering fast connection...
I am finding it remarkably easy to concentrate here, despite the continuous hustle and bustle and coffee-shop noises. Good place to hang out. I was even able to study my alloted two chapters per day of biology. And joked about 'wobbling DNA' with a friend. And offered said friend's sister help with video editing [actually I wasn't much help, but my suggestion worked at least :) ]
I just migrated over to a wall plug....laptop battery was getting low. This has the added advantage that my back is to the wall and I can overlook the whole place in a suitably imposing manner.
Love my town :)
