SNA really, really sucks

Found the WiFi. It's way overpriced. An hour here costs what a daypass costs in DFW or ORD. It's difficult to locate a good hot zone. And now that I've relocated and paid for it, the damned thing forces a popup ad on me about every 20 page loads in my browser, except the popups aren't Safari-compatible, so my entire Internet connection freezes for about three or four minutes while it tries to force me to view the ad it can't show me.

This airport is the most ridiculous, banana republic operation I have ever had the misfortune to fly into. Whoever wrote their WiFi contract was either an idiot or on the take -- I strenuously object to being forced to pay usurious rates for bandwidth, then have to waste my overpriced time waiting for miscoded intersitials.

ETA The ads are branded 'mikrotik hotspot', and the network name is npwireless.com. I am definitely writing a couple of smoking letters later this week. These people should be avoided at all costs.
