Ocens vs Xgate

So having decided that I am going to get a email server compression service, I can't tell the difference between OCENS and Xgate. They seem to be the same?

Re: Cost of email at sea services

Ahhh, but the upfront cost of an SSB is zero if the PO installed it =P

I got a trial working of Ocens and am comparing it with Thunderbird.

Nexus Autopilot lurches left?

I have a nexus autopilot. The PO had a messy Nexus/Raymarine set up.

It seems a new fault has developed which is strange. Underway, the nexus systems (reading from the compass I assume) read about...

How about a middle road.

Re: New Father...Advice needed on sailing with kids

The car seat seems a common tip from what I have heard. You can strap it in anywhere.

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

Sorry, it's not a few. We are talking h.u.n.d.r.e.d.s of comments at best personally insulting, at worst, borderline criminal.

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

Actually, I find your statement very very unreasonable.

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

Good grief no. To be able to even pay your mortgage takes 20 hours of blogging a week and 1000 visitors a day. 99.99% of blogs don't come close to that.

Yes, I would agree. I think that few of them are able to gain traction or traffic. Those that do tend to be written by younger people. The concept of a "successful" blog is one that is able to do...
