Camp Wireless goes mobile. Wap browsers will find a lightweight mobile version of the directory of campsites at http://wap.camp-wireless.org/ (this link will take you to the normal site in an html capable browser). This solves the chicken-and-egg problem of being somewhere and finding a campsite with wireless Internet, without having Internet. Programming for wap is interesting. There is only one wap-browser for Unix available, wApua but that one does not support forms. And stuff that looks ok in wApua fails horribly on my Nokia with the helpful error for any page it doesn't understand (including wml format errors): 'File format not understood'.
