Found tons of free wifi networks around charleston!
This one has bandwidth speeds up to 2500mbps!

Seeing how I get 42kbps at the house this is great! :flowers:

Anyways we made it safely on the 4 hour drive or so.

Beach is nice but its 91 now with 57% humidity so its toasty.

I told my dad I will probably have my hard drive full by the time we get back home. He said probably by tonight. :thumbsup:

Yep its fun so far. Went for a walk on the beach saw lots of crabs with the flashlight and they move fast!

High speed here is amazing. Speed is according to the server but I tried to download something from Adobe and I got 6mbps! Might post some pics of various things.

Oh we also went across the new cooper river bridge and with my civics moon roof looking up at the beams is so cool. I will have to get a picture maybe we will walk across it....

6mbps?! Dang that's fast!!! I didn't know transfer speed could be so fast! To me, 500+kbps is insanely fast. I can only imagine 6mbps.
When I'm asking for help, please explain, in detail, every step. Thank you :).
I have nightmares about computer glitches and bugs.

does the wifi extend to the beach ? I'm thinkin that there would be more to look at than a laptop screen though. If you get very lucky you might find a Megladon tooth at the beach, either way, Party On !

I still remember when going on vacation meant that you were away from your computer until you got back...two weeks later.

I feel old...and I'm only 21!!! :thumbsup:

I was prepared to use my 10 hours of netzero dial up but not now....ha ha

I will have to get some pics up tomorrow. We took our blow up(11ft long by 3ft wide?) raft out in the ocean. We might use it to go fishing in tomorrow.

It worked well and did not tip over.

Hey CGM, I was stationed there for 3 years in the 70's. If you get the chance you should see Fort Sumpter, The Old Slave Market, The Battery and maybe even tour the U.S.S. Yorktown. (If it's still there)

Have fun! :thumbsup:
