I'm a good pirate and I'll gladly share in the booty, when there's booty to be had.

And if there's none to be had? Why then, I'll sail with ye anyways!

Have yerself some of this fine hot Rum Toddy, Cap'n!

To yer health!

Cheers!

Ahoy! Me Hearties!

And Thankee for this fine prize and bounty of being chosen Pirate of the Day!

AARRR! What an Honor! Thankee all!!!


By way of giving a wee something back, please let me present you all with this fine painting, "Ariel and Taeping". One of the greatest clipper races in the whole China tea trade was between the Taeping and the Ariel, from China to the London docks, 16,000 miles, 99 days at sea. The first shipment in fetched the highest prices, so the stakes were high. Taeping won by 20 minutes but the Ariel crew had her cargo unloaded first. Areil is the clipper in the foreground.

'Twas painted by Montague Dawson, who's best known for his grand "The Battle of Trafalgar".

No matter how far inland I may be, when I glance upon this painting I hear the rush of the wind, the flapping of the sails and the roar of the sea!

To The Pirates! To each and every one of us! Hoorah!

Pepo! Ye olde scurvy Dog!

We have units in hand already! 'Tis what I meant when I said "Belay that post...we be off and running".

We sail quick on my frigate! Hahah!

Aye, I'll be roaming through the posts here. ;)

Have some rum with me, Matey!



"Sixteen Men on a Dead Man's Chest, Yo Ho Ho an' a bottle of rum!"

Belay that last post, me Hearties!

We've trimmed the sails, reset the rudder, caught a good stiff breeze and we be off and running!

Avast! We're off to roam the seven seas, a drinkin', a rollicking, a sailing and a plundering!

Ahoy! Virgin schooner of the starboard mast!

Aye! Let's be catching her! Arr!

Ahoy! me Hearties!

'Tis Beethoven, mates, rarin' to sail!

But no work units!

'Tis but a while ago, I reduced that Templar Seti@home raiding frigate to but 50% allocation, yet still she sails on, while my good pirate ship catches nary a breeze! Not a work unit to be found!

The Project be saying "Scheduler Request Pending". ARRRRGH!!!

What shall I do, me maties?
