Richard Siddaway looks at how Windows PowerShell jobs actually run.
Starting March 7, Eric Larsen and his three-person team of adventurers will start off on an epic journey to traverse the Arctic Ocean from Northern Ellesmere Island in Canada to the geographic North Pole. The goal: break the current expedition speed record that was set in 2006 by a Norwegian team to cover the nearly 500 miles to the North Pole in less than 49 days.
The team will use skis and snowshoes, and have sleds made out of lightweight Kevlar that will also serve as make-shift rafts as needed for large open-water crossings. They have to take everything they need for the trek – including food – with them, writes Brandon LeBlanc. Also going along with Larsen: Nokia Lumia 1020 and Nokia Lumia 1520 Windows Phones, to take photos and share the journey on his website and on Twitter. He has also been using the Nokia Lumia 2520 and Panasonic ToughPad G1 tablets to track and train for the expedition.
