Saturday 1st June 2013
Slept in till late then got up to see how the boys in Kingston are going rebuilding our server and raid array. There was not a lot I could do to help them so I spent the day rebuilding the tide gauge transducer assembly. This is a long pole that gets lowered through a hole drilled into the sea ice which has at one end a light, camera and a transformer that has to be placed over the transformer on the tide gauge sitting on the sea bed to down load the past years tidal data. I plan to attempt this next week but it’s going to be a real challenge just to find the damb thing under nearly a meter of ice.
I went for a wander down to the radio shack and had a tune around, but there was a radio black out due to some current solar activity so I gave it a miss and went back to the work shop. I kept looking up at the clock thinking I have plenty of time as it’s only ten past four, then I realised the clock had stopped and it was quarter past six. So I raced back up to the red shed and had a quick shower before dinner. It was a really quiet night and I sat up with Darron, Pepie and Peter C.
