Looks like my laptop has been kicked off the Rio’s hotel internet.

I just keep getting an error that windows cannot renew the IP address.  I went through the hoops with LodgeNet’s Indian call centre, who told me to try all the things I’d already tried and then said they would escalate it and call me back - but they still haven’t.

It was fine when we first got here, so I checked my email and left it downloading the latest episode of 24.  I’d be surprised if this is what they’ve taken offense to as I downloaded Christmas Top of the Pops last time I stayed at the Rio, and several episodes of Big Brother last year from various Harrah’s hotels.  I don’t watch that much TV, but some shows just have to travel with me.

It’s definitely something specific to my machine though, as when we finally gave up and plugged Claire’s laptop directly into the wall it worked just fine.

Sadly, my fingers are much too fat for this tiny keyboard for me to be able to type at anything like full speed, plus I’d be juggling between computers to find photos, so expect some minor blogging delays.
