I'd prefer the the side of the U by the Alumni Building (scooterville side of main campus). I'm pressed for work, attending a conference and might skip out of the presentations that I've seen before to do my real job - OK, that's not cruising the internet : )

Looks like there might be a couple wifi spots very close to the Gateway bldg.
http://www.wififreespot.com/minn.html lists:
Ben & Jerry's, 702 Washington Ave SE
Espresso Royale Cafe, 614 Washington Ave SE

If you don't have a laptop & need a PC too, maybe one of the East Bank campus libraries would be open & have workstations available for public use. This page has locations and hours through May 21.

I also wonder if the Gateway bldg wouldn't also have wifi access?

I get a connection inside Village Wok from somewhere around there - I don't remember where. maybe Big Ten? Anyway, there are plenty of free wifi spots if you look around.

The U's wilreless network is pretty pervasive, but their wirewall does a pretty good job (not perfect though) of blocking unauthenticated access. It used to allow ping and DNS, so I had an IP-over-ICMP gateway running in my basement to allow me to tunnel all my traffic over ping; the same trick worked with DNS. But not any more...

Humm Expresso Royale didn't have a sign on the door. I'll have to try them tomorrow.
