    Definitely won't be using the restroom while I'm here. I will wait until I get to my hotel.

    Best buy kiosk sounds cool, might go check that out.

    Has anyone ever gone to the Connections newsstand? Is it worth the hassle or is it mostly hype?

    Des anyone have any recommendations for stuff to do in Terminal B? I've done most of the typical touristy stuff many times (food court, crocs store, Bose kiosk). Was hoping to check out some of the lesser known stuff where the locals go while they are in Terminal B. Also, I only have 40 minutes.

    Thanks.
    You could always cruise by the magazine racks to see if Denver Airport uses the plastic blinders on the porn magazines. Who knows? You might get lucky and sneak a peek!

    I hear Gate 17 has a nice digital destination sign.

    Damn you DDD. I am in DIA on the free public wifi and what was the first thing I felt compelled to do?




    Based on the results, I have to disagree with your characterization of the wifi however.

    Also, this airport does not have a Sky Club. Fail #2.

    The good news is I got my upgrade to First Class on this flight. The bad news is it is SkyWest so it will likely still be like sitting in a lawn chair.

    My last item of note from DIA? You can't be anywhere in this airport and not know exactly what is going on in the Denver / Pitt game.

    I am currently enjoying the convenience of free WiFi at Delta Gate C42 within the Denver International Airport. With the snow that fell in Denver Friday and early Saturday I was concerned that I might have to spend significant time using the free WiFi at the Denver International Airport, but the skies are now clear, the airport is not buy on this Saturday afternoon, and I expect my flight to leave on time.

    I can confirm that the excellent free wifi coverage extends to Mesa Verde.

    No need to surf for porn on the Denver's lengendary WiFi, you can see the real thing for free.

    I was disappointed to read that she wasn't making a bold statement against TSA but rather was probably mentally ill.

    Seriously? There's a lot of distance between Denver and Mesa Verde. Not to mention multiple mountain ranges. Were you on a plane? Even so, that's impressive.

    The signal is strong at gate A44. I wish I was enjoying the slice of pizza from Chef Jimmy's Bistro as much as I am the free wifi.

    I thought maybe I'd have a chance to use the free wi-fi at the Denver International Airport to report on more naked travelers, but none have appeared yet. I have another hour to enjoy the free wi-fi at the Denver International Airport coming in strong all the way at the end of the C terminal so I guess we'll just wait and see what happens.

    BTW, the sausage,egg, and cheese roll from Villa Pizza looks better than it tastes, but I think we all knew that.

    You forgot something worse than that - you forgot to mention that DIA free wifi is being phased out in favor of Boingo - yes, Boingo still offers a "complimentary" version but it's low-bandwidth b.s.

    And NOW I see how diabolical it is. I connect w ease to the DIA free wifi at gate B44 but only get this message when I open a browser: "DIA is plsd to announce our new wifi partner Boingo. ...to get online follow these simple steps...."

    I follow the simple steps and Boingo will not connect. Which is why Im posting this from my Galaxy Note.

    Doing my duty and checking in. The free Wi-Fi is working fine. on the downside, DIA apparently no longer has a Delta Sky Club. So I am sitting at one of the "used to be a pay phone phone" laptop stations.

    EDIT: On the plus side, Chef Jimmy's Bistro actually has pretty good food. Grilled Chicken parmesan was not bad at all.

    Check the magazine racks. He's probably pretending to look at Car&Driver while he taking surreptitious peeks at the Penthouse cover.

    Speaking of this, I noticed a kiosk in terminal B that sells beef jerky. No big deal except that it is called "Climax Jerky." the slogan is "Reach Your Peak." there is also a sign that says, "You've come this far (DEN), go all the way."

    I saw that a few weeks ago. Actually, I saw pretty much everything DEN had to offer, as I had to spend 24 hour there.

    Consider this my DIA free WiFi "Brooks was here" moment.
