Don Clark, a DaveNet reader, asks: "Have you figured out if you can use an AirPort at the airport?" It's a good idea. With dynamic TCP address allocation, which is now a standard feature in Windows, not sure about the Mac, you could walk into a special room, open your laptop, check your mail, browse the web, close the laptop and be done without plugging any wires into your machine or doing any configuration thru dialogs.

Technically this is no problem. Ricochet already does this, in fact; the only difference is that Ricochet is slower and uses bigger cells (the age-old tradeoff: bandwidth or range: pick one).

But how do you bill for it?
