Jan 27, 2007: Safe from porn and danger at Dayton International

Last week I was stuck killing a few hours at Dayton International Airport in Ohio, USA. It's a nice place, as airports go. I like the whole Wright brothers theme (they were local boys). The employees don't seem unhappy to work there. And it's hard to complain about free wifi.

Woops. Take that back. I really can't understand why the following error message came up in my web browser:

The wifi provider, WebMarshal, seems to have a problem with Bloglines.

Bloglines?

Is Bloglines a publisher of pornographic material? I was actually hoping to track a package I'd FedExed. And now, my pornographic urges have apparently been recorded on my permanent record...

Well, I had a few more hours to kill (oops, careful; don't use that verb while in a US airport). Inspired by my surroundings, I tried to book some flights for some upcoming trips:

Booking a flight is, apparently, dangerous. Especially while at an airport.

Wow.

And people still see web filters as a good idea?
