Here is a more "techie" question.
I have never traveled with a laptop, but the idea of taking photos and being able to download and share them on my website with others as the trip progresses is an intriguing idea.
The question is this: When in a hotel, and they say they have internet access, but it is the dial up type, how do you connect up to their service? Will they give you an access number or something to put into your computer to use? I mean, I am only familiar with the idea of downloading some sort of software from a disc and then getting an access phone number to call.
I would imagine with wireless, it is simply automatic, your laptop will pick up on it.
I suppose I should also check first to see if the hotel I have selected as any sort of internet connectivity. Also I know I need to check the price..I have heard some stories of sticker shock when it comes to internet access..like 10 pounds a day!
