Dear Prozies,
My parents are here and we are planning to spend a long weekend (Fri., Sat., Sun. and Mon.) in Amsterdam. Unfortunately, I am going to need to send and very possibly receive files over the Internet during this time period.
I am sure there on thousands of Internet cafés in the city, but it my experience with Internet cafes it is virtually impossible to be able to insert a disc in their computers to uphold and send a file or to download and save a file to disc.
Does anyone out there (in Amsterdam?) know of somewhere in the city where this can be done? I would really, really appreciate any helpful information.
I will have a laptop with me but I am not sure whether I will be able to use the hotel phone connenction for the modem or not.
Thanks,
Rebecca

Here you can internetten, work, bring your own floppy to work with and print whatever you need. You buy time behind a computer that you can use as at home.

It is also open in the evenings.

Why not using a virtual (hard)disk Aug 27, 2003

Having experienced the same kind of problems, I usually store my files at a virtual harddisk, i.e. in my Inbox (webmail). By doing so, I can access the files I need easyly and can also store incoming attachments etc.

Good luck!

Gideon
