I'm making up for all those missed years on TORn ;-) [In reply to] Can't Post

I did feel guilty for passing you. It just doesn't feel right. Blush

It wasn't my idea about Twitter - so I'm not entirely sure how it's going to work out. I don't think they realise how limited it is. Unimpressed There's probably enough bandwidth to upload something on to Twitter/Facebook (etc.) if everyone else isn't on the internet. Seems a little optimistic, doesn't it?

well, one thing to consider [In reply to] Can't Post

is that you can compose blog entries off line and then post them at another time. But it depends on what limitations there are. If it's bandwidth, it all comes down to how long it takes to transfer anything.

How long does it take to ship things out (I feel silly saying that) and/or how often does it take? You could compose and ship out entries on a thumb drive and have someone else post it. That way you could also transfer photos. Make it more like a personal diary/log. You might have 10 entries before any get posted.

You should do it for yourself even if it doesn't ever go online. When Starling was posting about her experiences with the earthquake, I suggested she keep all those posts on her harddrive for herself. She'll want them someday. And just writing about events helps you process them in distinct ways. I think that's one thing about relationships online. We write about so much and it's almost a form of a personal diary entry, sometimes.

Congratulations, Daniel! [In reply to] Can't Post

On your immortal status, and also on going to such a fascinating place. I'll look forward to hearing about your adventures.

I'd love to visit one (or more) of New Zealand's sub-Antarctic islands one day, but I'm a very poor sailor on any but the gentlest of seas, so I don't see it happening.

You are full of wisdom Magpie [In reply to] Can't Post

And it certainly sounds like a good idea. Even if I can't regularly post on a blog while I'm out there, they would still make for interesting reads afterwards. It's also more reliable than social networks.

The ship (that leaves from the UK) will take a couple of months to get to and from Antarctica. I have things leaving on ship this month, which will get there just before I arrive in January. As I'm only there for a short amount of time (there are some going for 18 months!), there wouldn't be anyone to pass anything on to.

A bit early for trimming the verge don't you think? [In reply to] Can't Post

9 days early in fact. The prediction I made 2 months ago was what, October 19th? Then all those pesky posters started coming out.... Laugh

Congratulations and thanks for the Mathom. In light of your early arrival, and your pending south seas adventure, we'll have to rework the prediction for catching Gramma. Though I have a feeling she's gonna bring it once the film hits theatres. Cool

I hope I get some great data (and results) [In reply to] Can't Post

Not many studies have been conducted on South Georgia, yet the island is warming at an alarming rate. I hope I can do my research justice.

I didn't fix it ... honestly Wink Had it not been for the new trailer and all those new posters, I think you would have been spot on!

I think gramma will zooooooom once the films are on. I'll be eating her dust!

I wonder how I'll last without TORn for a month?! Shocked

Happy and sad and excited all at once [In reply to] Can't Post

Happy that you reached this milestone and so very happy that you did so with such a kind-hearted and humorous attitude towards all. I've been a bit tip-toe-y and cautious, coming back to the boards after being away for so long, but thank you for being so welcoming to me :-).

And now I'm sad that you will be leaving for a while (dang, just when I was getting to know you a bit!) but SO EXCITED that you are off on such an interesting and incredible adventure!!! Promise us that the day you head off, you take a moment to trot out the door like Bilbo and yell "I'm going on an adventurrrreeee!!" ok?!

And send pictures!!*
