Fieldwork Photo: Computers in Camp


My wonderful yapa (sister) in my part of the room/shed/house in camp. We had solar power for about five hours a day during which time I’d jump on the computer and do some typing. After about six months in camp I managed to persuade Telstra to fly out in a helicopter and dig me a telephone landline….and like magic I had dial-up internet. It may have been the slowest most unreliable dial-up internet connection but it was a heaven send. Little things like receiving emails from Mum made a huge difference. Family loved learning how to use the net too. The most popular site was the Bureau of Meteorology so they could check out satellite imagery of the weather in the region.
