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?
