Laptop Died...

My stupid laptop died! I am still in NYC and am writing this is the hotel's business center where the computer costs 40 cents a minute! (Can you say rip off?) I wasted 5 minutes just trying to get the computer to connect to my USB drive thingy where I had saved some pictures that I was going to upload. That wouldn't work, so no pictures for now. I'll post more after I get home tomorrow night, so check back.

Doesn't that just figure? 40 cents a minute? Ouch! It's like charging 4 bucks a gallon when you know dang well you are the only gas station for the next 200 miles!

No wonder this is such a short post!

Crankster: Well after saying I would post from NYC I was afraid if I didn't people would think I'd been lost in the big city. ;)

Michael C: In the end I got a bargain of sorts because the charge for Internet access from my hotel room ($10/day) never ended up on my final bill. Shh, don't tell.

CP: Yes, turns out I have a knack for brevity, but only when I have to pay by the minute for whatever I write.

No wonder i go a glassy-eyed argh in your country.

Austere: 1 US dollar to 45 Ruppes? Must make our prices seem like really low numbers!
