Always look on the bright side...

I'm currently working in New Guinea, at Lihir Island, there are no GSM

services for my mobile phone and I don't have my own access to the net.

Yet there is public access available via some shared PCs in the mining

camp. Ii is a bit like a low bandwidth internet cafe I guess, anyway it

works fine for basic email, and does mean that if i carefully resize an

image I can still easily post it to my blog. I have used flickr's email

submission system and the special address they have generated for me

(it is a unique address for each person) When I email to this address

not only is the photo stored in flicker, my email message is used to

create a blog enter in the blog of my choice. If you are reading this it

must have worked.


If you have a flickr account and a blog make sure you set it up. Then

even with the slowest, lowest speed, most basic connection to the net

you will be able to keep photo blogging.


See where this picture was taken. [?]
