More Internet Irregularity
30 Aug 2004
I’m still in Qingdao, getting in one last internet session before returning to my crippled Shanghai connection. I’m on an ADSL connection, and I haven’t accessed my webmail and website at this speed in quite a while.
The other night I went online via a friend’s laptop. He had a mobile phone card. The connection was slow, but it was completely wireless and independent of wi-fi “hot spots” (which is good, because there wouldn’t have been any where we were, in a place outside Qingdao called Æ½¶È). He said the service cost him 2000 rmb (about $250 US) per year. Hmmm…
One thing that I find very strange, though, is that my CSS layout is broken when I view it here. The right column acts as if it were not inside its controlling div, but nothing in the layout has changed. I’m using IE 5 here. Explanation?
Qingdao is an awesome city. I’ll have more to say about it in the near future (along with a few pictures).
