Bewley's in Ballsbridge now have a 512k leased line shared between the
rooms. As far as I know there is no charge for using it - they just want the
publicity of being the first in Ireland to offer it.

Except when you suddenly need to, e.g., use the Linux on Laptops page
to find the answer to a thorny hardware-support problem (or whether an
answer exists at all).
When I'm going to be at an install event that isn't going to have
Internet access, I make a point of mirroring in advance a bunch of
sites I think might be needed, bring my machine with me, and offering
the mirrors on a local httpd instance.
May those that love us love us; and those that don't love us, may
God turn their hearts; and if he doesn't turn their hearts, may
he turn their ankles so we'll know them by their limping.
