Airplane wifi


I'm on an airplane that supposedly has free wifi, but so far the only website that I've been able to access using the free wifi is dominion strategy dot com. The browser times out trying to reach Google, Facebook, Wikipedia, Twitter... but you guys I can reach. Hello everybody! How's it going?

J Reggie:
It's probably because f.ds doesn't use https. It's actually pretty useful to know! It helped me get into a WiFi network once when the browser didn't want to redirect to the sign-in page from any https site.

Thanks! Also the problem only existed while the plane was over Canada and the Great Lakes; once we were over land in the US, https access was available.
