March I am over at Inverclyde, so I can drop-off the CD with the software etc.
Kip Marina office in a Jiffy-Bag addressed to Ash, or in the cockpit of Mistral?.
Will set-up and configure for the price of a cup of tea.
Sorry for the delay in replying - I've been working away from home (in Dusseldorf) so didn't have access to the internet.
I'm sure that a CD in a poly bag will survive fine in the cockpit. I'll be at the boat fairly often between now and beginning of April.
Has the EEE got a CD reader?
I can use the Sony Viao and a memory stick to get the files onto the netbook.
Probably not, but as these files have been extensively checked, scanned and tested on XP, Vista & 7, Ash can safely transfer them onto USB, external HD or a network without any issue. I will also bring my N45P to have a look at (if req) plus an external for transfer just as long as there is a Tea involved.Mistral
is bereft of supplies at the moment, but will be re - provisioned nearer the launch date. I would hope that I am able to set it up myself, but will keep your kind offer in mind if I get stuck, and will ensure that tea is available.
I don't know this unit myself, but sticking it on to a decent sized (esp. thickness) bit of ferritic material (soft iron for preference, mild steel more available) should significantly reduce external magnetic fields.
The unit is designed to be stuck on the roof of a car - or more likely, an off road ute.
A bit of mild steel, encapsulated in plastic to prevent rust, would be easy to arrange if I find that I have problems.
I still wince at the memory of the effect that the sea-searcher magnet had on the tiller pilot - http://www.bluemoment.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=2497
