Product Description

Product Description

How the web works.

And often, how it doesn't.

And why this drives perfectly normal people to drink.

Hence the Pub context. If you can understand how going to the pub works, you can understand how a web browser works.

It's not the kids who need to understand this stuff, it's the adults. Especially when a small person presents them with an arbitrary Internet-capable device and says "It doesn't work. Waah!" - when the manual's back at home.

Or when the adults are stuck in a hotel room frantically trying to get to work's email server. Or are backstage reinstalling things on a laptop an hour before a gig. Or are halfway round the world in an obscure town miles away from a web cafe. Or in the middle of a field of lunatics.

Compatible with: Drinkers. Dads. Festivals. Travellers. Windows. Mac. And as many Apple/Blackberry/Android devices as the author could get hold of.

More About the Author

Drinking Man is... not there. For whever "there" is.

This particular Drinking Man has been building and repairing chunks of the Internet for nearly 20 years, and trying to avoid questions about fixing networked printers for about 19 of those.

If things are going well, he's invisible, and probably in the pub by now.

If not, he's frantically trying to fix the network before they call last orders at the bar.

"Man Pub Pint" is a summary of all the fast tricks to get a device back online if you hit Internet connection problems in weird environments. Rooftops, cellars, hotels, tents, corporate venues, fields of mud - you name the scenario and Drinking Man's been there with a long network cable and a tight deadline.

There'd be more to this biography, but Drinking Man's phone has just rung, and it's time to tell someone to reboot. Again.

ALWAYS REMEMBER: It's like Going Down The Pub For A Pint. Just much, much weirder.
