Signs of the times...

Things that make you realize just how ubiquitous the Net has become:

My stepbrother Mike Teger is currently climbing Shishapangma, the 14th tallest peak in the world. With his digital camera. Using a satellite uplink to maintain a website describing the trip, complete with photos, as they climb the mountain.

Really quite neat -- Mike's gotten a number of cool pictures from Tibet. My favorite shot, of the base camp at night, is on this page, which currently isn't available from the navigation, due to a link error. (OTOH, I can't really fault them for having a few bugs, given that they're maintaining the page from three miles up...)
