Re: Computers on Ships
Steel, anything is possible IF your employer is willing to accept telecommuting and "at sea" doesn't happen during assignments. Because truly at sea, you'll be using satellite data connections and you can still figure a buck a minute or more which is still really damned cheap considering what was possible ten years ago.
One might ask, if a competent "software engineer" shouldn't be able to figure out the possibilities and costs for internet connections. Unless you're really something special, most employers want solid connectivity while contractors/employees are on any kind of assignment.
