Getting Connected, Staying Connected

So, I’ve been using a Sprint Mobile Broadband card (it’s actually through a reseller: Millenicom – great deal btw), for awhile now. I use it in the car, by the beach, in my hotel room, and actually quite often in class – because unfortunately CruzNet (the UCSC WiFi network) is definitely not ubiquitous on campus, even in Engineering classrooms and other lecture halls. Now, this might be intentional (to "help" students focus), but frankly I find it quite frustrating… because I’m much less likely to go to class at all if I’m going to be sitting there, fidgeting, trying to force myself to pay attention. It’s not all the time, but I guess you could say I’m addicted.

Anyway, so I’m sitting in this lecture hall right now, and I keep getting disconnected from WiFi, and my Sprint card won’t stay connected either. It’s such a PITA. I can’t wait for WiMax, or whatever. Obviously, I’m not holding my breath, but it feels like I’m treading water, waiting for the WiMax rescue boat.

When’s it gonna happen?
