We had no internet for almost 10 days. The repeater was down and people who could repair it could not fly in from McMurdo due to bad weather and other logistic considerations.
It was frustrating to not have internet, but it was also good. People would otherwise move on to their laptops soon after dinner and get busy checking emails, writing blogs, making facebook entries etc. With not internet, there was a lot more talk and a lot more fun and games.
We finally have internet and I will post about the past 10 days slowly.
