The magic of technology – pictures and commentary…

June 29, 2012

Hi there! It’s not Randall/Murre it’s the “wife”.

I’m not sure if any of you are aware of the magical technology that allows Randall to post his blog updates on here, but it’s all pretty low tech and high tech all at the same time. Everything you see here is passed through space through a ham radio signal.

This means that posting pictures and videos is virtually impossible. The boat sighting recently noted in a previous post piqued everyone’s interest so we’ve managed to get a photo for you all.

Voila!

How weird is that? Can you imagine what it must have been like to come across this in the middle of basically nothing but ocean. I know my mind is blown almost every day when I read Randall’s posts.

On a separate note – I’d like to refute that yesterday I was shopping for shoes (that’s what he was implying) online when Randall passed 38 degrees latitude and San Francisco. I was, as every good wife should be, looking out to the west and thinking “Wow, Randall’s right out there. So close and yet so far.” And then I ran off to another meeting at the office. This means I can stay employed, get a paycheck, and keep Randall in the lifestyle he’s accustomed.

Ok. Needed to get that out. And I’m totally kidding (for those of you who don’t know me). I do have a shoe shopping problem so his comment was not without some merit. We may be miles apart but my husband knows me.

Well I’m back to work. Thanks for following his journey!

    Thanks for the update Jo! It must have taken forever to transmit the .jpg file.

    Here tell, this photo took 15 minutes of broadcast time at highest power to transmit. So this photo came out of Randall’s (already tight) refrigerator-power budget. For which we are most appropriately thankful.
