Sitting in departure lounge 3 at Schiphol airport, waiting for my flight to Manchester. As is natural at times and places like this when you have a spare sixty minutes or so, I connect to the net to pick up email and to see what's going on.
I tell you, Schiphol's wifi pricing is about the most ridiculous I've seen anywhere. Two payment choices - either 6 euro for 30 minutes or 10 euro for 24 hours. Wifi service at this airport is via Attingo, a Netherlands-based company I've not come across before.
Six euro for 30 minutes! Daylight robbery! I thought Heathrow was expensive at 5
euro pounds for one hour via T-Mobile, but this is ridiculous.
Just time to check RSS feeds, maybe email as well, and rant a bit.
Oops, time's up. Jeez.
