Just learned about this. If you have the bandwidth for it, you can get pirate language lessons from YouTube. There is even a whole section devoted just to "Arrr".

Welcome aboard. I rather like this little statistics display. As on a real ship, space here is tight. The size of signatures has been restricted, to keep them from taking up a large part of a thread. But this style would fit in nicely in our cramped quarters, even if expanded to a few lines.
