Rabosai, the place I'm staying in the U.S doesn't have internet access and I need access to my gmail account to be able to send the parlor meeting invitation out, and to confirm people's attendence. Does anyone have any ideas? Perhaps someone has a blackberry or iPhone or something like that, that has access to the internet that I could borrow for a week while in N.Y?

(Unless it has a strong filter, I will not use it unless my partner is with me in the room. I am makpid on yichud with the internet    ;D)

Please be in touch with me at eyes.guard@gmail.com

Thanks and Tizke Lemitzvos!

P.S. We found someone to video the event.

How about taking your laptop to Starbucks. You don't need an account with them anymore to access their WIFI and there is no yichud with the Internet (every Starbucks has Internet)... I think that Mcdonalds also has free WIFI now (just order a Coke or stand outside).

Many cell phones can be connected to a computer via USB & used as an external modem for the computer's internet access.

for the record next time you can buy a PEEK (getpeek.com or amazon.com or at Target stores throughout the country) It only does email. No browser or anything like that. You pay about $15-20 monthly and an older version of the device costs about $15. It will be handy for all future trips also.

HY, that is JUST the thing I need for the summertime, when I go to the Catskills but need to check email on Friday.
Except, that now they bundle twitter and facebook along with the email! Sigh.
