The frustration of "I agree"
One of the most useful reasons for being in port is access to the Internet. Not only is a great time waster but it also is a great source of free marine information. (See the page link on the right to "free internet sources.") Usually I can get access for the entire network of devices on Reboot. But the one I haven't figured out how to beat is "I agree." These are web sites that have a disclaimer page requiring you to agree to the terms and conditions of the site before you are switched to an Internet connection. Of course my web browser can do that easily enough. My phone and game console can't. The end result is that most of the network stays down.
