I'm probably going to have to do some on-call work, and will likely get 
a dongle thing so that I can connect from my laptop to the office VPN 
when I'm out and about. Is this javascript thing something that might 
screw up my chances of a working connection?

I too seriously wonder about the crapness of our internet - I only get 
1.5 megabit download at my house with the wired broadband, and that's 
not likely to change anytime soon. Can I have wimax or whatever now please?
