Can anyone help?
My son works off shore in many different parts of the world, he is planning
on getting a laptop and is wondering how he can get e mail without the cost
of having to use a Mobile phone for the connection which would cost an arm
and a leg.
Does anyone know of a ISP provider that could be accessed from a variety of
phone numbers around the world at one cost?
His actual words were...... "I need a subscription to an ISP that will allow
me to be able to plug into a phone line in the Houston crew flat or the
Aberdeen crew flat or a crew flat in which ever other country I happen to be
in and connect to a local number for my dial up connection. "
All ideas gratefully received
Use AOL and set the service up to do "flashsession", which will automatically,
or when you decide, connect to the ISP, download all incoming email and usenet
posts (if you choose to) and also send any email written while offline and send
any usenet posts, then it disconnects.
No need to be connected to the internet unless you're literally surfing the
What's your son doing that they would fly him to oil platforms all over
the world? I know a lot of folks who work in the oil patch, but the only
one who fills his passport with stamps is a saturation (deep sea) diver.
I'm just curious (er, nosy).
Wow -- sounds like a fun job! Give him a tip 'o the hat from me,
when you talk to him. (I'm sure he already knows that Aberdeen
is hard to beat for a pub crawl, from what I gather from oil field
