We did a little more driving around then headed back to the hotel to get a Wi-Fi connection. The overseas plan from AT&T just sucked out loud. $70 for 50 Mb of data while in Canada, but we couldn’t even load the map to search for directions. We couldn’t even call AT&T because dialing 611 got Rodgers cell service at $0.89 per minute instead of AT&T.
When we got to the hotel we decided to ask if we would be charged per computer for internet and they said yes, it was charged by IP address so connecting to the Wi-Fi with two computers would result in both having to pay. If this ever happens to you there is a solution. Take one machine and plug it into the network cable to get the internet. Pay for the one computer and make sure the internet is working. Then create a Wi-FI network of your own using that machine and share your internet connection no your network. All internet connections through that network will use the IP of that one machine so you only get charged once.
So we sent some emails off to AT&T and Sandra headed out to hit some shops on Bloor Street two blocks South, while I finished up one more job and tried to get some prints made through the FedEx web site.
I finally gave up on FedEx because the earliest they could have my 15 pages of black and white prints ready was Tomorrow at 4:00 pm but we were going to be in Sudbury, Ontario by then so No Thanks!
About the time I finished, Sandra returned from shopping. Our plan, originally, was to see Niagara Falls today but it is a 2 hour drive and we wouldn’t get there until around 8:00 pm. We still had a few things we wanted to see in Toronto so we decided to skip Niagara Falls. Instead we decided to get showered and find some dinner nearby in one of the many outdoor restaurants.
So I hopped in the shower first, adjusted the water temperature and pulled the knob for the shower. *BLAM* the water pressure from the shower nearly knocked me over! I had just seen Niagara Falls without even leaving the room!
After our showers we talked about how we could work Niagara into tomorrow’s drive, a whole 4 hours extra. In the end we decided to extend our stay in Toronto by a day. My back was still really sore and I wasn’t looking forward to sleeping on the ground, not to mention that Sandra had a few shops she wanted to see if we could squeeze them in.
