Whats the world record for the Highest LAN?

Cos if everything goes well we should have 7 highspec Laptops to take to singapore this coming sunday, and the plane has WiFi broadband.

So im thinking LAN @ 35,000 feet

For anyone intrested in the spec of the laptops we (should) have this friday...

You can, you just don't use the crappy M$ product. You use VNC or something of the kind.
