    Checked into a motel and thought they has wireless access. Seems they didn't provide that service. I powered up my laptop and they were a couple of default connects available (no security enabled). How safe is it to just jump on and check emails, surf headlines, etc ? I run zone alarm firewall and avg antivirus on the laptop.
