Cody's got a phone call from Antarctica a few days…

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2002 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Cody's got a phone call from Antarctica a few days ago. How cool! A worker at Antarctica Station called us up, looking for a particular blank book. Evidently Antarctica personnel get free phone calls (I'd hope!), but they have to wait something like 45 minutes after placing the call to get a free line (they're last priority to the military switchboard).

What time zone do they use? No easy answer. Wait, there is.
