Good ping, poor speed

I miss my home wifi. The hotel we’re in has horrible internet. And I’m gonna end up spending a fortune trying to constantly tether.. It’s gotten to the point where I walk the halls looking for wireless access points and repeaters, and start resetting them just to save the front desk time. Hopefully the appartments we’ll be in next week will be better.

Trinity College Long Room

Today I had the opportunity to visit Trinity College, see the Book of Kells exhibit and walk through the Library’s Long Room, which was nothing short of amazing.

The Long Room (amply named) was built in 1713, is 213 feet in length, and has 200,000 of the Library’s oldest books. This was originally a single story building, but became full and had the second floor and vaulted ceilings installed in 1860. Pictures don’t do this place any justice, but I’ll share them anyways.
