On the subject of alternative access technology does anyone use/know much
about radio?

we use it for a laptop LAN and it's great. We're thinking of using it in our
office and I kno wsomeone who uses it to feed straight form a local ISP -
approx 0.75km line of sight and it works well. Pavilio here in Brighton i
said to be looking at local feedand already feeds the Media Centre - home to
new media businesses

the airport stuff with the new macs is sure to boost it's use but it seems
slow to take off. Price is a problem -- we paid ?1600 for a base unit and
?400 per pcmcia card. The airport is cheaper, and cleverer (we need to use a
server whilst the airport appears to offer shared modem use for up to ten
machines through one line. Not much fun but cheap n cheerful and easy.

And are all radio modems compatible?
