    to send her son emails.

    [13:53] TheSutrix: I made my entire department's jaw drop
    [13:53] TheSutrix: Someone is travelling to Russia
    [13:53] TheSutrix: and Russia internet is really expensive and totally regulated
    [13:54] subl1meromeo: lmao
    [13:54] subl1meromeo: russia is teh sux
    [13:54] TheSutrix: so they asked me how she can send just emails to her son inthe US
    [13:55] TheSutrix: So I suggested the Cybiko, Russian rooftop network, Microsoft MESH text sender, Plan 9 Inferno on a CF Card and then drew out on the board how to make a radio telescope
    [13:55] TheSutrix: I googled up an old write up on which frequency the international space station monitors for data
    [13:55] TheSutrix: and then told her "ask nicely and the guys at the ISS will forward the email"


    I've sent a few characters to the ISS with a cybiko. I didn't really carry out a conversation, but I got an ACK from them. If I had more time, and if they wanted to see it in action first, I would do it.
