Hello all,

Some of you who talk to me on MSN will be aware I'm going camping during the upcoming holidays, those who don't, well now you know!

I leave tomorrow but I don't go camping until Saturday, but my online presence will be reduced. I do have a mobile USB modem but whether it will work at the campsite is something I won't know until I get there. Map coverage shows as non-existent for 3g but 2g is present do dial-up might work.

I'll do my best to upload photos during the week of course, broadband and time permitting. I wish you all a pleasant time while I'm away. No house parties unless its after 9pm ;) And be sure to stop at dawn or the server monkeys will eat you alive! :mrgreen:

Image

I'll update this topic with a link to my photo gallery when I upload the first pictures.

EDIT: Just thought I should add how long I will be away for. I'll be away from 20th (tomorrow) till 31st, as it stands at the moment.

Andy (Admin)

Hope the trip goes well, my friend! Don't worry, I'm sure mrpijey and other mods will keep the house clean while you are gone! I can't say anything about the server monkey, though. You know what he's like... =/ xD

Thanks :)

Here is a satellite view of the camp site.

We'll be in the bottom right corner with any luck. We've been here before so if we go to this one again thats where we'll try to go. Its in a slight dip away from the wind and its got a water hookup :) Useful when there are ~12 people on your plot!

Plus if you only get 2G signal you'll probably get sick of it... GPRS barely gets 1kb/s anyway :/

... unless you're lucky enough for EDGE

I get 210kb/s on my phone using GPRS. Are you sure your facts are right?

Offtopic Comment
Yes, seing as GPRS only gets speeds of 30-50kbps. EDGE is up to 236.8kbps, which is around 30kb/s

Most GPRS seems to run EDGE here, at least all the ones I've encountered so far. HSDPA is so unstable its unbelievable... Just 1m of movement from the stick can go from full HSDPA to GPRS 1 bar... Still, its usable either way so I'm not fussed. I need RDC and e-mail, thats about it, and its for emergencies only mostly.

I fail to see how a 3G stick can put out a fire. Your model may have a special hidden fire extinguisher or something like that though :P

Have fun

Howdy guys! Yep I'm a saddo, I got internet while camping, but what you gonna do? I've seen 2 people doing the same so far!

I got a few pics already, but since I can only get 2G signal that means 53.6Kbps only, so I've uploaded just two pics for now.

All of our tents:

Tunage from my car:

Lovin' it!

So far we have spent £86 on food/drink for the 8 of us (!!!) and thats just for ONE night!!! We'll be going out in an hour or so for more food/drink for tonight. I think we have planned to have curry or something like that, but who knows, ideas come and go and last minute plans usually get used instead!
