Technology used on the Canberra trip
While on the trip I write about below, I kept a daily blog primarily to keep parents informed of where we were and what we were doing. You can see the result here.
This was the first time I had tried to do this (actually it was the second time I had tried, but my previous experience two years previously had died on day one due to technology restrictions), and I was really surprised and pleased with the response from parents and grandparents (and an aunty).
To make it all work, I used the following bits and pieces:
- an Acer Extensa laptop computer
- a Sony Cybershot digital camera
- Internet Explorer 8
- Telstra pre-paid mobile broadband
On almost every occasion everything worked perfectly.
I would be interested in hearing about other hardware/software used successfully (or not) by readers when they have been away from home for a similar experience.
