Re: [podcasters] Re: Podcasting in Antarctica
- Dear All,
Firstly, a very big thank you very much to Tony Mechin
for offering to make some CDs for those who missed the
postal deadline for the radio station in Antarctica.
Also, I have just now received some good news. A
friend of our has told us that he is going down to
Cape Town this Monday 8 January. He has very kindly
offered to download some MP3s from the internet, burn
a set of CDs and take them to the supply plane in Cape
Town. So if you, or anyone you know, missed the
postal deadline, there is another chance.
He has requested that all files are sent via the
online file delivery service YouSendIt
<http://www.yousendit.com> before Sunday 7 January at
1500 Central European Time (one hour ahead of GMT).

- Once registered, click on the 'Send File' option
- step 1"recipient's email address' type:
- step 2 'select a file" choose your file
- step 3, click send it.
I'm afraid I can not use You Send It on my slightly
elderly Mac, and thus, I can't give you any more
technical advice than this. Give it a go, and if it
doesn't work, well we tried! :-)
If this doesn't work, then upload the file you want to
send to an FTP server, and send me a direct link ASAP
(this will need to be before this Friday at 1000
Central European Time).
All the best
