Another quick request from any of you who know. Some of the photo’s are dropping off leaving x’s. Any idea if they are lost for good. For some of them I don’t have ready access to replace them.

[font=Verdana, Geneva, Arial, Sans-serif:ulgwfjhd]The original files if deleted will cause copy paste photos to have an X. The photos you place anywhere on your site should be stored in the document cabinet, photo gallery, or your “My MSN photos” section. [/font:ulgwfjhd]
If you want to use a photo from another place on the Net and not save it to your photo galleries or community documents than you can insert it by using its URL and type it directly into HTML codes with scr scripts. I would not reccomend this because one that is stealing bandspace of the website you are linking the photo directly from and often times their is a copyright on the photo.[/font:ulgwfjhd]
Store your work in your photo galleries.[/font:ulgwfjhd]
If you have than see x marks it is your browser settings or MSN is doing repairs and thier is a malflunction in the system for the time being.[/font:ulgwfjhd]

[font=Verdana, Geneva, Arial, Sans-serif:7tkfn8mj]Mike, a press kit can be as simple as a basic short and long kit. The short is an article basically you write yourself about you and send out to newspapers. Newspapers love that! Their writers either keep it in stock to use when they are low on articles or they run it right away if it is a hot – now kind of piece.[/font:7tkfn8mj]
The long press kit is what corporations, large publishing houses etc… use it takes time to sort through it. Basically you write everything almost yourself and the reporter will sort through it and make an article.[/font:7tkfn8mj]
The Website Review has changed addresses and our population is slowly increasing. The last site we had an average of 20 people joined daily. We want to write more features when thier is a larger audience to come and learn about Antarctic adventures and your coffee house.[/font:7tkfn8mj]
I am so fasignated with this site! I come and read it and you portray it as if the person is actually there. At one point I almost had to go get a blanket because some of the photos gave me chills and I am located in one of the most hellish hot spots on this planet. [/font:7tkfn8mj]
After reading a comment that a school wrote about your website I got off my *** and finished the banner Lac wanted you to have.[/font:7tkfn8mj]
I do have a suggestion for your website – but I will keep it for later. [/font:7tkfn8mj]

Hey who knows maybe you guys will be down here one day. If interested go to http://www.polar.org and apply. Whatever you do they probably hire at least one person. They’ve probably hired most people by now but next year is still open.
Press Pack? Lets see. Lorie and I quit our American Dream lifestyle at the end of 1996. Sold our house, gave all our furniture away and got on a friend’s sailboat with the plan of sailing around the world for 3 years. Didn’t work. We got caught in a storm while anchored in the lagoon at Tahiti. The boat washed ashore with us aboard and we eventually sunk on the beach in the waves. That ended that trip, but we stuck out our thumbs and hitched rides as working crew on a total of 3 more sailboats and went to all those places that people dream about. 10 months after starting we landed in the Bay of Islands, New Zealand where we became volunteers for DOC their ‘National Park Service’. We stayed in a variety of hut’s for over a year and a half clearing trails and boating around to the different islands doing recreation and wildlife work. It was a thrill but eventually the money ran out and we returned to the states.
Before leaving we ran into a fellow returning from ‘the ice’ who told us how to apply for jobs with the United States Antarctic Program. We took a 24 hour bus trip to Denver to attend the job fair and the rest is history. This year is our 3rd time back and our second time wintering over. We are planning to come back again for the winter of 2003. After that who knows. It will be seven years since we lived for more than a couple of months anywhere else and maybe it’s time to settle down, maybe not. We’ll see where the wind blows us.
The webpage gives a good idea of what we do down here. That should fill in the blanks , but feel free to ask anything you like.

Have you used your banner yet? Did you really like it or if not it can be altered. I have recieved A LOT of mail regarding it from other website managers. I hope you do not mind I have it on our website for everyone to see.[/font:r2mc9490]
[font=Verdana, Geneva, Arial, Sans-serif:r2mc9490][/font:r2mc9490]
[font=Verdana, Geneva, Arial, Sans-serif:r2mc9490]I hope you will come from time to time to visit us and tell us anything new thats happening. I of course always love visiting your website and I nominated it to MSN for thier next cool community spotlight. [/font:r2mc9490]July 5, 2002 at 11:29 am #1481
I loved the banner. I just can’t figure how to put it on a custom page anymore.On their last update MSN took away the “Computer” link as a source for custom pages.
No problem here with any links from your site. Mostly this is just a place where people who dream about coming down here can see a little of what life at 30 below is like.
