I’m at the airport on my way to foo camp at O’Reilly and discovered something really neat- I have an EVDO card that I hacked up the drivers to work on a Powerbook 15″. I turned on my Airport card at the same time, turned on Internet sharing, checked off airport, turned on web sharing and now everyone with me can use my connect as a free Wifi hotspot, which is a better deal than the $10/day deal here. This likely isn’t news to old pros, but news to me. It’s a little like the stomp box in MAKE volume 03. This might also work with XP’s connection sharing, will try that later too. Link. Update: Second life on the parasite PC is doing great! Photo.
