More comms testing before I head South. This update via the 'ether' and some little shiny balls in space. I knew the technology was there, I just didn't know how to use it! (I'm not a great technophile. For example my mobile phone is 8 years old....it's definitely not 'smart' ! )
So now (after some brain hurt) I think I've nailed how to update my new blog diary by satellite email, update Twitter and Facebook automatically at the same time and order a pint of milk......all with one compressed email and 30 seconds of satellite phone time.
This entry is the first trial run from my back garden. Satellites don't care where the signal comes from so if this update works from the cosy streets of a Leicester village, it will work from the wild beaches of South Georgia.
All I need do now is learn how to type with more than one finger!
Next update in a few days and 8000 miles from Leicestershire.
