    when you find out more info on that macca's thing let us know. Sounds like a great way to do "stuff" on the internet.

    Thats the only infot hey have lol

    it's mainly for guys who have laptops who come in for coffee and stuff.

    But here is the Lowdown

    $3 gets you 40mins (might be 60 i don't remember)

    there is something inbetween i don't remember how much and how many mins

    $10 = 3 hours

    Now the password you get to logon to the network is useable at any Maccas store in australia (as long as they have wifi)

    Now This is a ISDN line through telstra.

    I don't know when the password expires but it says that it is useable anywere.

    Here are the locations which have Wifi spots (be handy in poi)
    QLD Locations

    VIC Locations

    WA Locations

    NSW Locations

    SA Locations

    There is a hotline for the Telstra wifi spots 1300 131 816

    Not sure what you will find out tho besides speed?

    I did ask maccas if they hve any info like a pamflet when i went into the store today and they said no they checked so i don't know how to get more info besides buying 1

    The wifi spots have been there since the start of 2005 might of been since 2004 but i don't know

    But everyone should check it out

    maybe we should move the food from KFC to maccas lol

    Yeah rust is the killer

    I went to maccas and they didn't know how charge for the damn thing so i didnt get to use it

    I rang up the telstra hotline and i got these quotes:

    $5 = 15mins
    $26 = 120mins

    the guy was talking very fast so i didn't catch the rest Grrrr

    But this is different pricing from what I saw on the sign at maccas up neer the NSW Boarder

    He also said i have to buy a Card so it looks like u can to to a telstra mobile shop and get a card then use it at maccas without going inside.

    The lines are ADSL (why i keep saying isdn i have no idea)

    thats the only info i can give u

    if i get time i'll try getting a card tomorrow and try it out but i probably won't

    it's probably based on the new style mobile wireless networks that are popping up.

    Not any maccas only a certain few but cause the meet is in boxhill that boxhill maccas has internet access altho im not sure if the macca's in boxhill is in the mall which would be useless for Carpc's anyway.

    I'm gonna go down today and see if they know how to charge me for a wifi card

    Also another interesting note is www.melbournewireless.org.au

    I should be able to make this meet (my dad is flying over as we speak).
    Unfortunately due to my clumsyness when unscrewing the laptop motherboard my carputer is completely stuffed!
    However will be interested to meet all you guys and find out what systems are installed etc.

    [edit] Due to my birthday being yesterday, I might be able to dig up some funds to get back on track with the carputer![/edit]
