The joys of train travel in germany

My wife convinced me that taking the train instead of the car for my 380 km ride to today’s customer would be a good idea.

Thinking of my Nokia N95, which I’m using as a 3G modem, this sounded good to me, too. For the last 30 minutes, however, I have been continuously swearing.

Dear Deutsche Bahn: if I wanted to ride through tunnels most of the time, I would have taken the subway!

The distance between two tunnels is just not long enough to get a 3G connection before it breaks down again. Have you heard of repeaters?

Sucks. Big time.
