The wonders of modern (open source) technology…

I was just thinking that there’s lots of little advances in technology that you don’t really think about but that add up to make a real difference to what you can do.. This time it’s a combo of SSL VPN’s and free broadband Internet in hotels that’s letting me sit here and listen to any […]
