Tip: How to easily keep your Powerbook from trying to connect to internet when on the road and off line.

Go to Network panel in System Prefs, Under the 'Locations' popup, select 'Edit Location'. Duplicate any existing location, and rename it something like 'Off-line'. Now disable each type of network service - and Save. Now you can switch easily at any time from the new 'Apple' menu's location sub-menu.
