Vodaphone has a 3G wireless data service. I believe the PCMCIA card they
use here is the Vodaphone Mobile Connect, which has the same part number
as similar ones in Europe, and I know I found instructions on the 'net
for using one of those in Linux, but have never tried it.

I am supposed to be getting one for emergencies myself, but haven't
organised it yet.

Of course Pacman didn't influence us as kids. If it did,
we'd be running around in darkened rooms, popping pills and
listening to repetitive music.
