Blogging on the rails

Literally. I'm on a Via Rail train bound for Montreal and I wanted to see how easy it is to do an in-transit post. (Very easy.)

For most of the ride, the connection has been smooth, if a bit slow. And I've been able to download emails, and visit websites and blogs. In the past, I've had trouble working on Outlook and I'd get booted off the internet more frequently than not. But that was then (six months ago) and things seem to have improved.

For what it's worth, I think Via is the ideal way to travel from Toronto to Montreal. The time involved is practically the same, it takes you from downtown to downtown, you get fed, watered and you can read, work, listen to music, talk. It's a pleasant reminder of simpler times and virtually stress-free.
