For the moment I am waiting for the 2nd plane in Hong-Kong, but I will soon be in Antarctica, in Terre Adelie, Dumont d'Urville station. I will be working for Meteo-France (french meteorology service). I will write a blog at:

Heard of computer graphics? CG? Terragen 2, the landscape generating program, also known as TG, a whole cool way to create realistic CG - with TG.

Hi Erwan,

I'm quite jealous :-). I hope you have a great time. I quite often see the US Antarctic planes being loaded at Christchurch airport in NZ and have considered hopping the fence and stowing away!

Regards,

Jo

Hi there,
The adventure has begun!
I have put a first message on my blog. In french since I'm french, but, wait, I will try to translate when I'll have some time.
Internet here is damn slow, 256kbps only!

During my free time I will continue playing with Terragen, but I won't be able to download terrain data...
