Panbo offshore, sporadic

Offshore gizmos

Actually I may be in Bermuda, and able to get online, for a few days. On the other hand, I might have some difficulties getting the gizmology through security! Then again, maybe I can figure out how to post via Iridium. Let’s just say…sporadic until about July 1. 

6/22: I made it! But, damn, WiFi is tight in Bermuda. $5/hr, $50/day, or $150/wk at the Dinghy Club here in Hamilton, and most everyone has their home and business AP's locked up solid. I know because I've been wandering the streets with that Nokia N800 in the picture. Finally found a good and open connection in a little mall. Am typing this using a ThinkOutside Bluetooth keyboard. Feeling pretty geek except I just tried going native with a marsala omlett with chili peppers in it. May have been a bad decision.

Ben,

I see that you are carrying on of Fred's AIS. What's the antenna setup next to it? It may be exactly what I'm looking for.

Thanks,

Mike

If you dock at the Dingy Club in St Georges they provide free wifi.... Although that was 2005 but owes tech. moves backwards?
