comms test

Dispatch created from email
I'm sitting in a freezing car outside our guesthouse where we can get a clear satellite signal. Nacer and I are doing a final rundown of our Iridium and Yellowbrick comms.

To send my blogs from the Arctic Ocean I first wirelessly send a photo from my camera to my iPhone, pair the iPhone to my Iridium GO modem, rack up an email with photo attachment and coordinates code, fire up the GO then send the email. It goes to the Expenews website which automatically forwards it to Facebook, (which forwards to Twitter) and allows the post to be directed to www.icetrek.com/ice-blog using an Expenews widget. The coordinates code updates the Google map at Expenews while the automatic signals from the Yellowbrick update the
Google map on my blog. While all of this happens I'm likely boiling water, cooking dinner or regaling Nacer with my awesome dad jokes!

Thanks G-Layer for providing all the hardware.

We are delayed by a day due to bad weather at Barneo and will likely fly out tomorrow.

Eric
