Hey guys,

A couple of questions:

What's the best way to get (legal) internet access around town? 

* Optus Mobile Connect prices seem exorbitant at $10 an hour. 

* I haven't been able to find much current info on the Telstra /
McDonalds wifi network

* I'm not sure what other options there are round.

How do they handle authentication at these places? AFAICT the Optus
stuff seems to be by a web proxy, which should be pretty Linuxable. But
anyone else have experience using these services with Linux?
