Kirkland's municipal free wifi, and yummy berries
City of Kirkland has installed free public wifi that cover the downtown core and a couple of downtown parks. The connection is good, decently fast. I found an power outlet even!

The only problem was finding shade.

I also discovered that Wednesday's are Kirkland's farmer's market. Berries are in season and are cheap. I bought a half flat of mixed blueberries, blackberries, and rasberries for $10, and then found a sale and bought two full flats of blueberries for $36. Good for smoothes and for freezing.

/me hopes the wifi is straight DHCP and doesn't require any OS-specific funny business?

/me answers my own question: yes. Good. I was afraid somebody from the Collective might do something annoying... they did not.

It's still a captive portal, with a clickthru AUP.

It doesn't do anything like require some ActiveX control, though, does it? (Even NoCat can be set up with a portal page like that...)

Aw, I'm jealous. I just paid $30 Canadian (which isn't that much less than $30 US these days) for a gallon of local wild blueberries to freeze. They were worth it, though. Still, I can't wait to live in a more produce-productive area and try that "100-mile diet" thing...
