I do, but I have it in the contract that I won't accommodate such requests, nor will I play a CD/DVD/other media that someone brings me during the gig because you never know when it's going to be scratched in just the wrong place, or a copy of a 24kbps flange-a-thon.

I am a DJ who frequently plays gigs in places aptly described as "out in the middle of nowhere". As a reference, the last two gigs both involved a client telling me, "If you need more power, let me know. I'll go get the generator". I sent an SMS to my wife at the start of my most recent gig, and it got to her when I got back in range, an hour an a half after I left. Connectivity is zero. If I need connectivity to play it, I can't play it. I will be happy to tell anyone at the gig why I can't play it.

VNC might be really slow over dialup though, you'd need to use Tight encoding with JPEG quality cranked all the way down to make it usable at all.

I will admit to trying such stupidity and confirm that this is true. Watching a screen refresh, even when using -compresslevel 9 and -bgr233 is very painful over dialup. Try to avoid it if at all possible.

SSH, OTOH, is fairly usable by dialup.

You know, the difference between this company and the Titanic is that the Titanic had paying customers.
