Wireless access at ACT Libraries

By Holditz - 23 September 2010 13

wireless

I saw this when visiting the Civic library a day ago.

There’s nothing on the ACT Libraries website, and the lack of laptops in the library and the sign almost transparent and hard to see makes me think that no one else has noticed it.

I haven’t had a chance to test it, and I don’t know if other libraries are equipped yet?

What’s Your opinion?

I used the Woden Library’s “wireless” while wandering past at lunch, it worked pretty quick for the distance.

Books without wires, what will those boffins think of next.

Maybe the door is wireless and is one of those Star Trek “Shwoosh doors”…does it go Shwoosh?

Shouldn’t that be Wi-Fi?

Nope. Wi-Fi is a trade mark. If they wanted to get technical about it they could use “802.11 wireless” or “Wireless LAN”, but never Wi-Fi.

Does it play Dad’n’Dave? Or what about the Naked Vicar Show?

Ha! Classic. What about ‘The Green Lantern’?

One would hope that they at least pick up the Goonies.

Since when did books require wires?

The National Library in Parkes does. In the building and around the outside as well.

Kingston does, and it’s used by a lot of people.
