    If you send me the coordinates or the address, I can put together a map with the locations.

    Here is a demo. I'm not html smart enough to have it click on the map and give you the coordinates or what the name is or to zoom. I also don't have a server to put it on, but with some html help I could improve it. How's this for a start?

    I'm not sure how popular SBC DSL is in Arkansas, but SBC is offering free wi-fi connections through April 2005. After that it will be $1.95/month. It looks like UPS stores, McDonalds, and Barnes and Noble book stores are the popular places.

    Here is the link for the SBC wi-fi spots in Arkansas but the offer is available at all their spots in the US. http://secure1.sbc.com/locations.adp?State=AR

    Thanks RGS. I don't have a WiFi card for my laptop but thinking about it and I can't find (google) this info "free wi-fi connections through April 2005" and the only pricing I found was one mention of $2.95 for a 2hr session at McD's (through Waypoint I think)...../ $19.95 per month membership.../ etc.
    A quote from the link:
    Pricing
    Our FreedomLink service is priced to meet a variety of budgets and connection needs. The following plans may be purchased using a credit card.

    Prepaid Connection: Provides a day of unlimited access at any FreedomLink Hot Spot. Prepaid Connections are available in increments of 3, 8 and 20.
    3 sessions - $25
    8 sessions - $50
    20 sessions - $100
    Membership: Provides unlimited access to any FreedomLink Hot Spot starting at just $19.95 per month. Memberships require a commitment of 12 months.
    Was the $1.95 a month, a typo or is my broken finger (like my broken mind would never be at fault ) just hitting the wrong keys?
    Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, you'll enjoy it a second time.

    Wi-Fi

    Hi folks,
    Another link for Hot Spots: www.jiwire.com/search-hotspot-location.htm This list sorts hot spots by place, time, location, location type, proximity to your location (even phone booths), and wireless types.
    Hope all have a good holiday, off to Colorado.

    BPnJ, I finally found some information on this. Here's the quote I found on WiFi Networking News:

    "SBC officially announces $1.99 per month unlimited hot spot services: If you subscribe to SBC's DSL service at a rate as low as $26.95 per month for their cheapest service, you are entitled to unlimited Wi-Fi hot spot service for $1.99 a month with a one-year commitment -- after receiving free service until April 2005."

    From this article, it appears that you need to sign up for one year in order to get the "free" service. Does anybody else know more about this?
