Almost a winning WiFi

Costa Coffee in Carlow are now offering free WiFi through bitbuzz. Which is great. If you have an iPhone.

It doesn’t work on Android devices for some reason.

So sorry Costa, it’s back to Café Le Mode for real free WiFi for me.

Teachers on Trial tonight in RTE

Frontline is doing a show on teachers tonight. I hope its focus will be about how resource hours have been cut from the children who need it most. Sadly, I think it’ll be a bunch of people fighting about our pay and holidays.

Good Coffee or Free Wifi?

Carlow Town has a number of cafés but only one offers free wifi and that’s the one I go to.  Even if a place offers great quality coffee, comfy seating, free refills, cheaper prices or anything else but doesn’t provide free wifi, I won’t be there if I want to do some writing.  Right now, I’m sitting in Café Le Monde.  I actually left another café to come here as it didn’t have free wifi. Every time I come here, I spend at least €2 but more often than not, I spend a lot more buying lunch, cakes, etc.  If they didn’t offer free wifi, I would never come here.  I’m never blocking up a table and the maximum time I really spend in about an hour. So Carlow cafés, unlock your broadband and let me in!
