Iron Bark, a 35-foot Wylo II. This boat and its owners spent winters frozen into the ice in both the Arctic and Antarctic.

@minikomi it was awesome to see you two yesterday! Thanks for joining us :)

I'd love to have some of the pictures you took btw

Finished installing elementary OS for a neighbour. He asked for help about some problems they had with the internet connection and ended with a fresh install of a new OS.

When we were talking about the issues they had (a couple of days ago) his mom asked what would it cost to repair the PC. I immediately said that «of course it's for free», and then she immediately offered me some tortillas.

Tomorrow I'm going again to show them their new OS.

I desperately need to finish a project.

Any project.

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

*looking outside, a black helicopter lands right next to our boat, a man walks out, enters his super yacht*

Know that if something happens to us at sea, that we have left this world without regrets, we had had the opportunity of being surrounded with amazing and kind people, that we've had the incredible chance of seeing more than we had ever hoped, and that we wish that our death will not discourage anyone to take on such an adventure for it's not about the length of life but how it is spent.

Before I leave for a big passage I activate a kind of death switch that sends messages to my family and close friends.

Everytime I turn it on, I hope it doesn't have to trigger of course.

I think we'll host a special event on th Merveilles IRC channel before we cast off for 45 days. We'll make an annoucement for that on monday or something.

Pretty much completed all the projects on the sailboat, we're waiting for our satellite phone SIM card, and we're off! Tuesday or Wednesday we'll pack up our bikes and everything on deck and visit the immigration/customs office.
