I’m currently on my flight back from Houston and there’s internet on board of the aircraft! I have bought the flatrate access for $26.90 which gives me unlimited access throughout the flight (including all connecting flights within 24 hours). That’s a reasonable price for a lot of fun (at least till the batteries get low, but I have battery power for at least 6 out of 8 hours So that will be sufficient, since I plan to see the movie Walk the Line about the lifes of Johnny Cash and June Carter.
I had barely written the above lines when Tim got in touch with me through Jabber and made me get a Skype account (I had downloaded Skype some time ago without using it) and Gizmo. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get my Skype handle (mahabln) for my Gizmo account, so I’m mahaberlin there. We started to VoIP (which was in itself an interesting experience, if you consider that I was high above Washington, D.C. at that time), and then we produced a podcast in German: Maha im Flugzeug.
Jetzt bin ich über dem Atlantik… 😉
