Action (Geoff)

Finally some action today (apart from re-loading the SatStat satellite information or gaining a high score in Solitaire, Spider Solitaire, Minesweeper, Freecell and 3D Space Cadet Pinball). Our cargo flight departed for Ridge A. We will be anxious to talk to the pilots this evening to hear about the state of the "runway".

The timelapse of the loading was taken using my GoPro Hero2 in a custom heated box (using hand-warmers). The heated box worked well (considering it was around -30 C outside); the camera took ~2,150 photos and still had an almost full battery.
