We have been spending some time now in temporary apartments while ours is going under major rework in the plumbing department. It has meant giving up most of the niceties of own home, including also the comfort of your TV, DVD:s, game consoles and access to television entertainment – sometimes even the ability to connect to broadband internet.
It is safe to say that it has been quite a shock, but at the same time I have learned to cope with mobile broadband and have been positively surprised how good access you can these days get with mobile phone in the Helsink area.
I’ve watched new episodes of mythbusters streamed over the net, watched South Park episodes playing from southparkstudios.fi and been using the net almost like it would be a proper cable connection. Except when it doesn’t work right, which is the subject of next posting.
