Lorenzo Climbs Everest

Here’s a blog that you should visit. Lorenzo tends the plants at the Open University’s KMI labs in England. But when he’s not doing that, he’s climbing mountains! and he’s off now to climb Everest to celebrate and commemmorate the 50th anniversary of Everest’s conquest by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay.

The difference is that he’s providing an “audio blog” rather than the low tech one you’re reading now! Here I am extremely happy that I’ve at last set up a web diary, albiet as part of the testing that I’m putting Xaraya to, but still just low tech text. I wonder if I could configure Xaraya to do video blogs! A bit ambitious considering that I’m still struggling with the Helix Basic Server that I used to stream my videos!

Come to think of it, I’ve been really blogging since 1986 when I started one of the first BBS (bulleting board service) in the Arabian Gulf. Called appropriately “Stray Cats BBS”, but that’s another story!

back to work now… just wanted to tell everyone about this guy that I really admire for what he’s doing.
