Don Joseph Toyota in Kent and Their Awesome Free Wifi

I am at Don Joseph Toyota having my Corolla serviced for an ECM recall and an oil change. The nice thing about waiting in their new building is that they provide free WiFi. Ordinarily, free wifi is not luxurious, but it is functional. However, the wifi here provides me a very wide pipe to the Internet, so I am getting a lot of photo work done by quickly uploading to Flickr 15 megapixel images in a snap! In fact, the upload speed rivals the upload speed that I see at Kent State over their campus wifi network. Many thanks to the Don Joseph crew for providing this very useful amenity while I am waiting for my car.

UPDATE: My buddy Ed Carmien reminded me that TANSTAAFL. I did pay handsomely for their full duplex Internet access. Is it wrong to suggest that I have a Pringles can and I’m not afraid to use it?

I am a professor of English at the New York City College of Technology, CUNY whose teaching includes composition and technical communication, and research focuses on 20th/21st-century American culture, science fiction, neuroscience, and digital technology.
