Spot Hop + The High Sierra Network Utilities


With OnStar, you have the capability to have internet service! Unlimited for 20$, it's how I've been doing business since this disaster for awhile.


Here are some stats from the middle of the wreckage town using OnStar;






All California Servers.

Keep in mind that it usually ends up much better than this when on the road to civilization.

Stats from T-Mobile Hotspot with only my laptop attached;



Not bad! The servers my phone tries to contact are strictly East Coast.

With Restored Internet that hasn't been interrupted for about three days;




Much faster! See again that the servers this is pinging are in Atlanta. Let's Traceroute;



If you didn't know, Mac has a Network Utility application that's a GUI version of all the things we would type into a Microsoft Command Line. The Terminal gives us a smidgen more information.



















Notice in the Terminal window how the asterisks appear; Some router on our journey is having a bit of trouble.

Watch when I run the test again;



Now we're in even faster with the help of Dallas, TX.

Contactless Tech’s Role in the New Guest Experience ft. Intelity and The George

 Contactless hospitality technology is growing. You want to get away, and you'll be damned if a little thing like a deadly virus will stop you! But you still don't want to touch things. Ew. During the chat between INTELITY CEO Robert Stevenson and THE GEORGE Director of Operations Kerrie Hunter, you’ll learn how the historic boutique hotel has adapted a mobile-first guest experience in the wake of COVID-19—and how they see contactless technology affecting the future of hospitality. I don't remember how I found INTELITY (probably hoping to score a position with them), but I liked them enough to stay on the e-mail lists.
