Are there enough free wi-fi points in Whitby to make it worthwhile bringing a laptop for the Folk Week?

I often take my lap-top because of the need to work at the festival. I use a wi-fi usb stick from Orange. Basically, Whitby des have a couple of wi-fi zones but not enough to do the whole roving bit.

I used a 3 mobile stick on the camp site last year without problem.

A "3 mobile stick" means having a mobile phone internet setup, yes? Too expensive for me.

It's no big deal either way, but if most pubs and coffee bars in town had wi-fi we'd bring Marion's slow and clunky old laptop. If not, it's dead weight we can do without.

Personally, if you're relying on wifi I'd leave it behind. Mobile coverage is patchy. If you really can't live without, I think there is (or was) an internet cafe somewhere near ?Skinner Street - the main road with shops on going across below the school where you get tickets/leisure centre/huge car park. Oh, you'll see what I mean!!

If you are a BT Broadband customer you automatically have free access to the FON network of access points. There are other ways of joining as well, for details explore the links on that site.

If you look up Whitby in the "Find WiFi" link on that page you'll see there are oodles of FON points mapped.

Some of the cafes have access available, but I'm afraid I don't know whether they charge. There is also an internet cafe at the Coliseum.

You can also gain internet access at the library, although, you don't need to bring your own laptop for that :)

Library is behind the station.

I used the Library last year. Not only is it near the railway station - it is close the the other Station!

More information about the biological effects of non-ionizing radiation from wireless technology is coming out every day.   Enough is not being done by cities, counties, states and the Federal Government to protect us from the potentially devastating health and environmental effects. Through the 1996 telecommunications act the telecoms are shielded from liability and oversight. Initially cell phones were released with no pre-market safety testing despite the fact the Government and the Military have known for over 50 years that radio frequency is harmful to all biological systems (inthesenewtimes dot com/2009/05/02/6458/.).   Health studies were suppressed and the 4 trillion dollar a year industry was given what amounts to a license to kill.
On it's face, the 1996 telecommunications act is unconstitutional and a cover-up. Within the fine print city governments are not allowed to consider "environmental" effects from cell towers. They should anyway! It is the moral and legal obligation of our government to protect our health and welfare? Or is it? When did this become an obsolete concept? A cell tower is a microwave weapon capable of causing cancer, genetic damage & other biological problems. Bees, bats, humans, plants and trees are all affected by RF & EMF. Communities fight to keep cell towers away from schools yet they allow the school boards to install wi fi in all of our schools thereby irradiating our kids for 6-7 hours each day. Kids go home and the genetic assault continues with DECT portable phones, cell phones, wi fi and Wii's. A tsunami of cancers and early alzheimer's await our kids. Young people under the age of 20 are 420% more at risk of forming brain tumors (Swedish study, Dr. Lennart Hardell) because of their soft skulls, brain size and cell turn over time. Instead of teaching "safer" cell phone use and the dangers of wireless technology our schools mindlessly rush to wireless bending to industry pressure rather than informed decision making. We teach about alcohol, tobacco, drugs and safe sex but not about "safer" cell phone use. We are in a wireless trance, scientists are panicking while young brains, ovaries and sperm burns.

I can see a future in Morris sides wearing tinfoil hats (and presumably tinfoil underwear as well, from that last sentence).

Whitby is a cod area - you'll need to make a special request for Haddock , Wi-Fi or other exotics.

Jack
In addition to the library and Coliseum both of which charge for use of their computer and access to their wireless system a few places have wi-fi access, I do tend not to look for such things as I have access at home and work but Monks Haven cafe on Church Street has it as do the Black Horse and I think the Granby (Skinner Street. Personally I have no intention of going anywhere near a computer during my week off, mobile phone will be turned off,home phone will be off the hook and I may not even answer the door if someone knocks!

Cheers, see you in a few days

Does that mean the codpiece has to be bacofoil as well?

Just as well the sun never shines there, or it'd get a warm trifle!! AND don't go sticking one of those meat thermometers anywhere close . . .
