The Prime Minister of Norway arrived yesterday and tomorrow he will be giving a speech at the Pole, as well as hosting a reception for the Norwegians that skied in from the coast. Everyone on station will be having a special dinner and I'm sure toasts will abound. There will also be an attempt to have a live broadcast back to Norway the day after tomorrow in the early AM.
In IT, we've been doing some preparations over the past couple of weeks, including running cables, setting up computers and audio equipment in remote buildings and conducting lots of testing. This is happily not your ordinary job!
