    As of today the WiFi is letting me use ssh and imaps, so it looks like the “web only” restrictions have been removed. Speeds are now 2Mbps symmetric per device, not the delightful 16Mbps listed at my time of check-in. (Ran a speed test, but no idea why it hasn’t updated.)

    There’s a computer lab up on the first floor that’s near the kitchen, and almost always has lots of free desk space and power points. I’ve never had any complaints about moving a keyboard aside to squeeze in my laptop.

    There are power points available in the outdoor seating area if you look closely. On a nice day you can grab a coffee from the library cafe and work outside.
