I ate last night at Due South, on Brighton (t d) beach and, in the interests of experiment, to say nothing of impressing people at the other tables with my sophistication and technical know-how, got the PowerBook out to see if i could pick up a wireless (t d) signal from the Pier-to-Pier network. There was a signal, but very weak: a pity. There's a little way to go before we reach the state to be discussed at next week's SCONUL conference as wireless Brighton.
I had an excellent meal though, potted shrimp, venison with red cabbage and spinach and a hazelnut and honey tart.
On a more positive note, the people behind the wireless signal I sometimes pick up on the train have been in touch and ask if I want to be part of a trial.
