If you're abroad and don't have data connection or a good roaming plan for voice calls, texting via SMS is often the only way to communicate.

I place things in locations which later elude me.

Ah, indeed. I guess I'm just used to the ubiquity of wi-fi.

Thanks for the advice everyone! We've decided to use wifi where we can and a cheap local phone where we can't. Hooray for keeping all of our arms and legs! Smiley

aren't we supposed to have three tie breaker contests? Or are we spacing those out a day apart also?

- Tie-breakers will go up on 12 October (as soon as group 10 closes), and will close on 14 October.
- The second chance round will go up on 14 October, and close on 18 October.



If the other two tie breakers aren't posted at the same time, then will there be a delay on the start of the second chance round?

I think somewhere it said that only ties for 3rd place (of which there is just one) get a tie breaker.  4th place ties all go to the 2nd chance round.  1st and 2nd ties don't really matter at they go to the next round anyway.  So, the current tie-breaker is it.

I think that's how it works.

Daneyuleb is correct; there will not be tiebreakers for the two rounds where two stories tied for fourth, they'll just be 12 stories in the second chance round.

If you're going to get a cheap phone there, look for one that's on the MTN network... it'll work almost everywhere in South Africa with voice, data, and text. 

You might also check what the local laws are - for example, in Peru you have to apply for a license before you can buy a phone.

OK, thanks for the clarification.

It doesn't - it has a 3-way tie for 5th place.
