Stick me on 53.739961,-0.330769 which should put me on top of the Tidal Barrier on the River Hull (Hull, UK)


Hi, Kinhull.

Sorry for the late reply, I've been out of the loop a while, as you can see.
You are already in the file, in approximately the location you specified. You must have been in bjango's original, as I have no record of adding you. You can double check the position or, if you would like, I will shuffle it over to the one above.

Cheers!

This update came from the placemark file generated by those who set their location in their Pirates@Home preferences under their account. If your placemark is not here, and you think it should be, it's because it was located either in the middle of the ocean, the middle of the desert, or the middle of nowhere. If you want to be included, leave a message in this thread telling me where you are (a town or city name is sufficient for this). Cheers!

4) Message boards : Pirate Talk : Entrepreneur to launch online-only, tuition-free university (Message 8444)
Posted 4063 days ago by Profile Raven
Great idea in theory, but it doesn't really work for all sorts of things a traditional University teaches in a hands-on manner. Sure, you can get all the theory on chemistry you want from online, but what about the practical experience of working with chemicals and test equipment in a laboratory setting? There are very few subjects so academically focused on lecture and print material that could be effectively done this way so that it would equal the education you'd get at a bricks-and-mortar University.
5) Message boards : Pirate Talk : Passengers falling overboard (Message 8441)
Posted 4064 days ago by Profile Raven
It would have to be something more powerful than an RFID, which only works in close proximity to a reader. It would need to be more along the lines of a portable GPS unit - Not too large, but perhaps annoying enough to passengers if they're literally required to keep it strapped to their person when out on deck. Better monitoring of the deck areas would be more effective and less invasive. Fortunately, it seems passengers falling overboard is relatively rare.

I may be a little rusty on my genetics but aren't the random letters DNA shorthand? T C G and A? What are we looking at at the genetic level here?

My apologies, Scott, I hadn't downloaded the file of placemarks from Pirates lately. I have you now and though I won't be putting your name down as added yet I am putting you up in the file, so all you have to do is download it again.
