Jim's Las Vegas Pages

Tuesday, 5/16


After losing my 24-hour net access at 8:45am and not being able to switch rooms until noon, I looked for an open wifi connection.  Notice the one highlighted and then check the pic below.











This pic is from 1568, my former room, looking at Turnberry Place, a condo project south of the Sahara and east of where the El Rancho Hotel & Casino was, where I stayed in 1990 while playing in the BCA National 8-ball Tournament at The Riviera.

You techies will notice that the Turnberry's signal strength isn't great, but given the city-block+ distance, it's reasonable.  But why is it unsecured???  Also, there's lotsa other unsecured networks around here.  Strange!!!

The Sahara is on the left side and the three towers are the Turnberry Place, which is on the boom's sign.






I changed to a no-smoking room and got a better view plus a few different wifi networks, several unsecured...

Cox-Hospitality is the Sahara's wifi network (Cox Cablevision does the TV channels) which requires a code for access.  I have no clue about the others listed and would never consider one that's named "hotspotzz."  

And now for the better view...

Middle-left is he Riviera with the Wynn behind it. Middle-right is the Stardust and Circus Circus with the pink & white striped canopy. To its right is a condo construction project (minimum $500,000 per unit!) and Hilton Grand Vacations on the far right.
