I will trade your ABQ wireless for almost anything that uses Nomadix's
hotspot product .. the one that has a login page on -
even more broken dns jail, returns if I remember correctly for
random queries till their upstream dns resolver actually decides to go
update its cache.  Probably because I have a v6 aware resolver + some
of the hosts I accessed were dual v4/v6 or something, not sure.

I got a really well filled /etc/hosts file for trips through paris
airport (where the paris airport hilton charges 25 EUR a day for wifi,
and it is 9 EUR a hour at the airport, ugh)
