My Other Internet

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I use satellite internet ... most of the time. However, this evening, a Saturday night, after getting out of the whale watching cruise, we were really too late to get the campground we had expected. So began a search for ANY available place to spend the night. The highway (PCH) was lovely, next to the ocean, except for the signs every few feet telling us we can't part there through the night. But, a phone call back to Malibu RV disclosed a campsite, which we booked sight unseen.
It's a fine campsite, except for the trees covering the entire southern sky. (You've seen the advert -- "All you need is a clear view of the southern sky.") So, satellite internet was out for tonight.

It was time to rummage for the cell phone cable, the one that connects my Sanyo 4900 to the USB port of my mac.

The Mac OSX comes with all the necessary drivers. All you have to do is select the phone, put in #777 as the phone number, and connect.
