Explaining the Silence

There has not been much activity recently on the Focalplane hub and that includes uploading photos to Flickr. There are reasons. First, we have moved house. Second, trips to Europe, Canada and Africa seem to be the norm rather than the exception, and photo opportunities have been rare even though the camera is always to hand.

To compound this, we have no home internet connection at present - not even a telephone line! And when I am in Africa (as now) the connections can be slower than cold treacle. The other day I had to upload a 73 MB file to an ftp site. It took 6 hours!
