HOW TO GET INTERNET ACCESS IN THE GARDEN

3 LIFESAVING TRICKS

The sun is out, so it’s time to get our flat-desk-chair-buns out. The glamorous work from home life is about to switch from the kitchen table to the garden or your local -cool kids- park. Scared your laptop will implode underneath the sun? We’re your go-to when it comes to living that ‘internet access in the garden life. Grease up your TADAAM with sunscreen (but not for real tho); HOT INTERNET SUMMER IS ABOUT TO GO DOWN.

HOW TO STOP SUN GLARE

We all know the ‘enjoying sunny workdays’-stories aren’t that funzies because you can’t see a damn thing on your laptop screen. You’re probably harassing the brightness function or hiding underneath a beach umbrella (so only your toes are getting a tan). What you need to do to stop the sun on the laptop screen? Turn off the auto-brightness and turn on the high contrast mode. If that isn’t sufficient enough for your bougie internet in the garden-life, you need to invest for the best. Buy yourself a sunshade for your laptop (YES, THOSE EXIST!), or channel your inner Bob the Builder and craft your own with the cardboard boxes you didn’t clean up yet. Win-win!

HOW TO COOL OFF YOUR LAPTOP

Does it always sound like your laptop is about to take off in all its glory, helicopter-style? That’s hella concerning, and you know it. Make sure to close all applications you’re not using cause there’s no need to leave a million tabs open you’ve been neglecting for 3 weeks. Deep down, you already know you’ll keep procrastinating those tasks until next week. Also try to charge your laptop inside, so your device doesn’t need to get hot and dangerous outside.

Still too hot to handle? Dive into the power settings of your laptop and check out the energy-saving configurations to cool it down. Need another internet garden booster? Bring out the greater means and download ‘cool down’ software. No need to get all panicky, there are FREE options like Speedfan.

HOW TO WATERPROOF YOUR LAPTOP

If you really think you’re about to read a whole paragraph on protecting your laptop from the pool water, you’re in for a shorter treat: just. don’t. come. near. water. And if you do so, you’re probably doomed, but your last savior will definitely NOT be rice! Just put your laptop upside-down (don’t try to explore it inside out) for three days and pray for the best.

UP TO THE GARDEN!
