Default Wifi on a plane

Is sweet. VoIP works as well quite nicely. I'm bored up here and thought I'd share

Back when I actually used AIM, if one of my friends was online and sitting in class, I would bombard them with messages in HUGE font that said, COCK, DICK, PENIS, ASSHOLE, FUCK, SHIT.... so that all the people sitting behind them in lecture would see it.

I was thinking of doing that here in this thread, but I was going to put "YOU HAVE A BOMB WITH YOU???" ..... then I realized that probably wouldn't be very funny.

What is the charge for the wifi? I have a flight to germany this weekend and that would help to pass the time.

Thats not a bad price, I am flying to Hawaii in a few months, might be worth the $8 to stay busy for the whole flight.

The plane wasn't actually marked like they said it would be. Part way through the stewardess came on and said "its come to our attention that this flight will have WIFI"

Its based on MAC addresses though I think. You cannot use more than one device per paid pass. Also, I had to use my BB's regular browser for the first time to sign up and log in, then I was able to use everything else on the phone. (I don't use the normal BB browser)
