Last year I decided not to take a satellite phone on the Usumacinta River raft trip. Luckily the guards at Piedras Negras were generous with theirs when we needed to regroup after the midnight robbery. But it brought home the need for communications in case of another emergency out there.
One phone choice is Iridium, whose data service only works with PCs. But a determined Mac OS X user came up with these instructions for getting online. (via MacSlash)Posted by Dave at October 30, 2004 11:13 AM
