Q: I can’t get it to work! Will you help me fix it?

A: We can try, if you give us permission. We’re not computer technicians, so we can’t be held responsible for damage to your device. Don’t give permission unless you’re willing to not hold us responsible for any damage done.

Q: Can I bring in my own laptop?

A: Absolutely. Children under age 18 will need their parents’ permission to bring in their laptop.

A: Yes! See the instructions here.

Q: Can I use File-Sharing programs like BitTorrent, KaZaa or LimeWire to download files on your WiFi?
