Just passing through

You know when you arrive in a new country, your cell phone will often get a text message from whichever local network your phone has logged onto. I've just been playing with the phone I used last time I was in the States and noticed one of those. What's cool about it, is that it's for a Canadian phone network and says 'Enjoy your stay in Canada'. Well, I didn't visit Canada. I just flew over it for a couple of hours. Bad me for not correctly engaging flight mode on that phone. But it's pretty cool that it logged into a phone network while we were whizzing through the sky.


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
