Denver We Have a Problem


Ensuring Internet connectivity is one of the main functions of my job. Probably the majority of people surf the web, so when they can't get to their favorite 'http' site, I get a call. Today I got a few of those calls. Our satellite connection back to the states was fine, the problem was with our Internet connection out of Denver, which I didn't have the access to. This happened around 1 PM our time. Since we're 6 hours ahead of Denver, I had to contact someone after hours. Two hours later the problem was solved.

In other news Sandwich was written up in an article that was picked up all over: "Erebus crash blamed for Antarctica 'ghosts'"
