Last evening we spotted a few seals in the sea. When we went out we saw a group of about twenty seals swim by. And we thought we had seen many seals already… We also saw the “Märket mascot”, the bullfrog, in the storage room. Has anyone come up with a name for it?
The nameless mascot.
This morning I called the technical support of the Märket mobile phone operator. I finally got to talk with a guy from technical support. He was able to tell me why sending of MMS-messages was not possible. The new SIM-card was just a slave card for the old one. Sending of MMS-messages is not supported… Hopeful that the SIM-card in the broken phone would still work, we broke it open. Now it is totally demolished!
One sorry looking Nokia.
I later in the day contacted Kai, from my work. He was able to debug and tell me how to configure my phone to get email working! Yes!!
The wind was pressing in on the water boiler so that the wind went in through the chimney and the smoke came out through the hatch. We did some recycling of our pea soup can from yesterday and converted it to a new hood for the chimney.
The wind was blowing too strong for us to continue mounting the window boards. So we spent the morning writing the paper diary. We also did some preparing for continuing the work.
We have noticed an oil leak between the engine room and the storage building. We localized it to a hole in the engine room. Jon explored the lower floor, below the generators. The oil seems to leak from the old pipes coming from the oil tanks. An earlier lighthouse guard has tried to stop the leak with sawdust. It was all oily. The sawdust was replaced and the pipes were lifted a bit in hope of raising them above the level in the tanks. At least one of the tanks had some oil in it.
A bit wiser from previous days we started writing the diary early today. We are sitting in the kitchen and watching the waves crash in from the southeast.
If anyone knows the breed of the bird from yesterday or just want to brighten up our day, please send a text message to +358408499333! We also accept name proposals for the bullfrog!
Märket over and out.
