I decided to use up some credit left on a Telecom Wireless Hotspot card, so I headed down to my Nearest Starbucks which is in downtown Hamilton.
I got my coffee and set up my Jasjar on the table, loaded up my card number and password and presto we were connected.
Opened uop PocketIrc and logged into the Geekzone chat channel on IRC.
Ive been using this at home and found it quite useful to keep in touch with my fellow Geek mates here at GZ.

I was also monitoring battery consumption with the wifi being on and the backlight on and using PocketIrc. Probably went down about 10% in the 40 odd minutes I was connected.
I also took a photograph of the inside of starbucks whilst I was there-unfortunately the "Pretty Girls" had moved on before I could take one of them.

Oh no! We want the pretty girl's picture! (Of course she may not want to be in the public eye).

Anyway, good bit of information. I tried installing PocketIRC, but it needs a runtime, so I decided not to run it. Do you know how much memory does the run time use?

I dont recall having to install runtime at all
