Here I am sitting on the VIA train, trying to use the Internet. This is failing.

Not because there isn't any wireless access here. Oh no, there's plenty of it, my card reports 90% signal strength. It's just that the signup form for the paid service won't actually let me give them any money.

So it's not working. Man, life used to be better when Internet access on board the train was bundled with the ticket. I can live with physical reality intruding on my life, like bad weather dropping out the satellite link; but not when I'm stymied by arbitrary limitations like a broken authentication system.

Ever tried nstx or OzymanDNS? I haven't gotten either to work so this isn't a recommendation, just wondering :)

I'm going to try nstx on my way back.

OK. I can't get either to work as well. But I now understand the theory so perhaps I can implement a more reliable one.
