I can't recall if I was ll told this was free, or not told.  When _I_
tired, IIRC, there were many tmobile APs listed.  When I connected to
one, and tried to pull up a web page, it redirected me to the Mall....
er, shopping center website. That page had a link to tmobile.  That link
had 2 links to sign up for tmobile service.  The link I clicked on, for
somethign like "1 day" or "1 month" 1 time service brought up a web
server error.  So, I was never able to get a useful connection.

Cool! Let us know the details, and if you think it would be suitable for
a BAD meeting.  :)  [Open till 9P - necessary. 10P Good.  12P won't be
necessary for everyone, but would be very nice for the stay late crowd.]

I'd welcome your site report from there too.  :)
