More from the land of the Ibex

Well, following on from my earlier post I've just popped my Vodafone 3G PCMCIA card into my Thinkpad and, quelle surprise, Ubuntu recognised it as a mobile broadband card WITHOUT NEEDING TO INSTALL ANY OTHER SOFTWARE.

This is amazing, considering the fun n' games that I've had in the past with Vodafone drivers on Windows XP. Even under Hardy Heron and Gutsy Gibbon, I had to download and install "special" Vodafone drivers.

Added to this, suspend/resume *appears* to work oob ( after one test thus far ).

Right, in Starbucks for the final coffee of the day, whilst I update Facebook :-)
