In flight WiFi

November 18th, 2009 | 15:18

Just wanted to post this now, because it’s the first time I’ve ever had an internet connection on a flight.

Pretty cool, and way faster than I expected it to be. Feels like a cable connection.

Don’t know why it took them so long to figure this out, it’s very convenient. Too bad there aren’t power outlets though (at least on this plane).

Google released Google Sky today. You can now Google the universe.

Here are some good spots:

Crab Nebula

It’s not quite as cool as the program Celestia, but it’s still pretty cool.

Netflix! (and movie night)

So I called up comcast today to scale down some of my cable, then I realize I’m paying about $17 extra per month for basically one channel. So I got rid of everything except basic cable and HD, and I subscribed to netflix. Which means I will be watching lots of movies now, and having a weekly movie night. I’m not sure what night I’m going to do it on yet, but if you’re interested in coming, leave a suggestion.

Also, Kathleen and I finally watched Amelie the other night. We may be two of the last people to see it… We both liked it of course. However, last night we went with Liz and Matthew to a free screening of Penelope, which wasn’t quite as good.

Then we watched the eclipse. I took a couple pictures, but I don’t think they’re going to come out. I’ll post em if they do.
