  1. Here are the choppers. I'm pretty sure I got Dogstar. I won't know until I look at the pictures on my computer. Camera screen is too small.
  2. I realized it wasn't once I saw it better and I edited my post.

  4. You should see how much cocaine the Coast Guard brings in every couple of months.
  5. @Copper10-8 - Your signature broke John.
  6. I figure that as long as there aren't three of them and they're not on our roof, I'm okay.
  7. There were a couple of dark water camo fast patrol boats running in at out today. Every once in a while the fast patrol boats will go out at night, running without lights. Probably to welcome some freelance import/export merchants.
  8. The bridge opens on the half hour, so I don't know what the catamaran was thinking.
  9. Helicopters at the Naval Surface Warefare compound across from the webcam.

    Medallion Events on Board

    I like to refer to it as "bronze-like." It makes me feel better about myself. I liken it to the Olympics. "I'm number 3! Wooo!"

    Mariner perks (and any loyalty program, really) are incentives. The medallions are recognition. We don't wear ours, but I'm not going to begrudge someone who does. When it comes to accessories and jewelry, the wise man either gives a compliment, or shuts the heck up.

    Need to login every day

    In my case, I have to login any time I restart my browser (FireFox & Chrome on the PC.) My mobile browser do the double page load and log me in. It's not the cookie, because the cookie is there. I used to have the same problem on the old version of the boards, so I just consider it a cost of doing business now.
  14. It's probably latency (lag between packet transmission) and packet loss. I don't think the more expensive plan will make a difference, because it's not going to shorten the round trip satellite distance. I can check for sure next week when I'm on a cruise, but I would save the money. (Unless you can get them to provisionally give you the higher plan to test.) Big files are often a problem. Some protocols, like FTP, have the ability to resume transmission. The browser HTTPS upload does not.
  15. I'll try to get you as you pass by. We're in the condos with the blue glass railings as you pass in the channel. I will be on the Zuiderdam when you get back, but I can send you the photo after boxing day. Have a great trip!
