Wetherspoon WiFi Problem
Wetherspoon WiFi Problem
Two photos of my EeePC 901 in the Hart & Spool (J D Wetherspoon) in Borehamwood, Herts. The top one shows the "Cloud" log-in screen I was initially taken to. It is the wrong one. The bottom one is the correct log-in screen. I could only get to that one because I have it saved as a Bookmark in Firefox. The correct log-in screen's URL is... hotspot.thecloud.net/cloud-ssg-web/ssg.do I am not sure if this is something which happens on other Wetherspoons pubs. I do know that their free WiFi is very hit & miss and rather annoyingly (for me, at any rate) McDonalds has a much better service, also provided by The Cloud – I haven't yet found a McDog where it didn't work. In Wetherspoons I have found too often that the EeePC can see The Cloud (or, in some cases, the other name they have for the connection from the pub) but ends up just "pending" instead of connecting and letting me log on. At the weekend I found myself online in the Hamilton Hall on a connection called "Addison Lee". I can only assume Addison Lee's cabs have wireless routers in them and one must have been waiting for a customer outside Liverpool Street Station. They don't have an office there (they are based in Euston). UPDATE: The "Cloud" log-in screen does actually work now. When I took the photos above there was a definite problem. You have to be registered with The Cloud (which is free) and once you have signed up the free WiFi in both Wetherspoons and McDog should work fine. In Wetherspoon the above alternative still works The free WiFi in Wetherspoons is a whole lot better these days. I never had a problem with it in McDog. (Oct 2010)

The Linux transition is complete. After discovering that I can transfer pictures from my digital camera to this desktop with little effort I decided to give up Windows entirely. I spent most of the morning wiping my laptop clean and reinstalling Ubuntu Linux. This is my desktop, round 2, with some minor improvements over the last screen shot. So long Windows. I hope the door hits you on the way out.
