Pink Water Taxi Notice
have noticed problems with the mobile phone networks this
Vodafone, in particular, has been refusing to connect.
trying to reach the Water Taxi have reported trying multiple times
before they finally get through and, yes, the Water Taxis are all on
Vodafone (for now).
In all likelihood, two things are conspiring against us.
as part of their $1 billion programme, Vodafone is doing an
extraordinary amount of work on their Cell Sites on the Northern
Beaches, upgrading them to include the new 850MHz 4G network... but
that's not supposed to affect service.
Tuesday (March 6), two powerful X-class eruptions on the Sun (solar
flares) triggered the strongest solar storm in eight years.
recently, two more X-class eruptions on March 10 arrived on Earth
today, March 12, resulting in about a two-hour disruption of
telecommunications. Disruptions due to solar flare activity
forecast to continue until approximately March 16. Why one
phone network would to be more affected than another is almost
certainly technical and boring.
So if at first you don't succeed, hit redial. Still no joy - send a
text. We are there and just as frustrated as you are.

connect in the development of my fleeting moment of contributing to
cinema histories was with a mentor and celebrated Cecil Holmes who came
on as the post-production writer for THE VOYAGE OF BOUNTY'S CHILD. In
the past three years I have produced a re-grade and this resulted in
the E/D Cinema format and my distributor RONIN has also picked up this
titles to be released by April-May 2012 http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0202662
here is another link to a cheery cinema short OUT THEY GO that I made
for when we had cinema shorts which was part of going to the cinema.
Yes, I know this is by-gone-days however I keep telling people retro is
in fashion; I am here and available http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TYmWURmskMM
It’s been rewarding to see these titles find a new audience and somehow
these works have stood the test of time.
