Today at “The Bra”, I saw someone typing away on his iPhone. So I stopped and asked, “Excuse me, are you paying for the websurfing?”

(You know me, I’m not going to sugar coat my question!)

Anyway, this guy (a pilot, actually) showed me how to fine tune the settings on the phone so that my data tranissions never ride on the local cell phone network here. So if I’m kicked off the wireless here, I won’t get charged for data transmissions on the Q-Tel network.

Since I have my phone with me all the time as my music, this makes it much easier than lugging my laptop to the Bra area everytime I might have a hankering to get on Blogger or Facebook.

In other good news, my laptop batteries arrived today and they seem to be in good working order. They’re charging as we speak. I’m so glad I won’t be tethered to these outlets so much now.

My final note: went to the base theater to see “Nights in Rodanthe”. It’s okay. Sadder than I thought, but definitely not “Marley and Me”. I guess I should read the Nicholas Sparks book (I think that’s who authored it). The scenery (story is set on the NC Outer Banks) is stunning and I started missing the beaches of North Carolina, where our family spent quite a bit of time when Dave was in school. I’ve read a couple of his books and have enjoyed them.

Until next time!
