Internet in Edinburgh

I am currently sitting at my gate at Edinburgh airport, waiting for my flight to depart. This airport is pretty nifty in that it provides rather comfortable numbers of electricity outlets, and it is also covered by BT Openzone Wi-Fi access points, which I just discovered I can use for unlimited amounts of time thanks to my BT broadband contract. So I’m now sitting next to the cafe writing blog posts on my laptop. I am so teh geek jet-set.

In other news, I am annoyed at Apple for making it currently impossible to run Java 1.6 on Leopard: Not only did they not release a final version with the new OS version (as many had anticipated), the clunky old beta version of 1.6 doesn’t run on Leopard any more either. This is a total show-stopper for me, and I’ll delay upgrading until they get their act together. (I mean, come on, Java 1.6 has been out for all other major OSs for almost a year now.) I just hope this will be soon, because some of the new features (particularly Time Machine and Spaces) do look pretty sweet, and with the new Finder I will finally be able to get rid of my old version of Yep that has been getting increasingly slow.
