get one of the "new" (about 6 months old) memory stick style
modems which plug straight into your mac's USB port - they
come with mac drivers on them (rather than the oval ones
with a usb cable where they come on a CD).

As for network, figure out which mobile phone company you'll
go with (or currently use), and it's usually cheaper to use
the same one. Or use a different one so you have different
coverage chances; depending on how far into the middle of
nowhere you'll be.

perl -M 'use HolyWar::Network::Mobile;'


It is unfortunate, considering that enthusiasm moves the world,
that so few enthusiasts can be trusted to speak the truth.
