I took this shot yesterday to show how in some ways our location in Ventura County is special. But alas, about 5 minutes after this photo a new 'camper' moved in, now my view is more RV billboard than natural.
Our plan is to be at my Dad's by Thanksgiving. We were going to be on our way a few days ago, but our new grandson is taking his time, he was due 10/31. I also ordered an item that has to be replaced, and we are waiting for that package.
On the way to Dad's we are going to swing by Knott's Berry Farm. Every year they let veterans and a guest in for free from the beginning of November through Thanksgiving. Veterans can also purchase up to 6 guest passes for $17 each. We have done this almost every year for the last 14 years.
Thank you Knott's Berry Farm for this salute to those who have served. While we enjoy our day with you, it is this gesture that moves my heart.
Whats easy thether...I have a Sprint Evo 4G and would love to have a wifi connection for my laptop..
My answer: EasyTether is an app that works with most android (and other phone OS) phones that will allow the user to tether (connect) their android via a USB port to a computer. It is not a WiFi connection, but with your EVO you can turn on a built in WiFi that costs ~$30 a month, if you don't use a full month it will be prorated. See: Mobile Hotspot (This is hot! Your personal portable hotspot, connect just like you do with any Wi-Fi device. Optional $29.99/mo. Sprint Mobile Hotspot add-on is required for Hotspot functionality.)
The i386 deb is the one that would load on my laptop, just start EasyTether on the phone, connected the USB cord between my HTC EVO and PC, then opened terminal in Ubuntu and typed easytether connect pressed return, and it worked, for me anyway. BTW, PdaNet doesn't have a driver for Ubuntu.
... do you have problems when you are out in unpopulated areas?
My answer: So far I have not had too much of a problem with connectivity. Sometimes the frame of the motorhome causes interference, but by moving the phone around the motorhome a little bit has taken care of it.
We spent the summer at Lake Oroville, the campers with AT&The or Verizon had half the success of what I had with Sprint.
Well I've finally got my laptop computer up and running with Ubuntu (again), EasyTether, and my android phone.
BTW, with my unlimited data plan I have had internet access everywhere we've traveled while fulltiming in our motorhome, we started 01/03/11.
Until today I was running Windows 7 with PdaNet, but couldn't tether with Ubuntu. I got EasyTether pro from the Amazon appstore, and via RV park WiFi downloaded the EasyTether driver for Ubuntu. And few minutes later I was up and communicating with Ubuntu/EasyTether, now my Ubuntu is upgraded to 11.04.
