OK chaps and chapesses, the IDG team are now officially on holiday - the office is closed, the chimp's been put in a chimp hotel, last person out just turned off the lights and so on.

Mr Chill and Ms Jen are steering the ship here while we are gone. I'm out-of-communication range for 1 week. Will check back in on Christmas Eve.

Official back on-deck-status for the IDGers isn't till Jan 10 (Me, I'm coming back a bit later). So further enhancements to the forum will not take place till then.

You all play nice now.

because everyone comes to tell everyone else what they got,
everyone comes to tell everyone what they didn't get,
everyone comes to ask for help getting the new toy to work,
everyone else has no life :D

Talk to Growly about uber-powerful illegal wireless equipment.

There's no such thing as "out of communication range" with 1950W wireless power-transponders and ultra-parabolic 35kW dish antennas... and $99/metre high quality cable... and the most advanced packet-recovery software in the world... and loads of 110 Amp repeaters run from 600CCA car batteries in the 500+KM between you and the nearest town.

Well not quite.

Right, I'm going up to the roof to bolt it a few more times now.

If you DO want the thing legally, go here: http://shop.borg.co.nz (am I allowed to post that?). They had a sale on the 25dBi antennas, and the overpowered 802.11b cards...

Then again, why would you do that?

It was snowing. It was snowing in the middle of December. Not down at ground level, but snow on the hills behind Kaikoura. Christchurch, Kaikoura, Picton, Wellignton. Cold cold cold .....
