now that you mentioned it, we actually _should_ have a Debian Mirror
in the antarctica. I was just googling for a reference of Debian usage
over there
when I found this job ad where they look for an electro-engineer
to work for two years at the fantastic Neumayer Station III in the deep
antarctic - and they run Linux over there, too. Somehow I thought
to know that this was Debian, I may be wrong, though. As you may guess,
this job is much alike a space ship position and addresses everything
where there is some electrical current possibly inducible.


It is written in German, but good English is required. Give it a shot.
