I have a laptop that I take with me everywhere I go. There are two problems 
that I
have run into.

  1. Not all clients will allow you to connect your laptop to their system 
(network, LAN,
      etc.). Depends on their policies.
  2. Ethernet connection to a network is becoming more common, but there are so
      many different ways that you can connect including hardware, wiring, 
network, etc.
      It's nice that CODE/400 resides on the laptop and it runs on Windows 95 
now, but
      their are so many other pieces involved.

I have CODE/400 (beta currently), WinAPPC, NetSoft Router and an Ethernet PCMCIA
card. It seems like there's always one more piece of hardware or software to 
get each
time I go to a new site.
