Stupid wifi policies

The coffee shop closest to where I live has switched to one hour internet access. I don't think they require a purchase, but you have to ask for a new login key each time. What a pain. Not a huge deal, as they were probably getting overwhelmed with people camping out with laptops, but more annoyingly is the firewall or proxy that comes with their wifi management solution.

I actually wandered down today to do some work on a web page, and I can't use ssh, nor can I access web control panels (cPanel on 2082, nor plesk on 8443). What a pain. Looks like I'll be heading downtown to check out different coffee shops . . .
