You look at a Faberge egg (http://forum.oldweather.org/index.php?topic=25.msg141301#msg141301) and say to yourself: "Wait a minute. I'm not sure they got the rigging right."
::)
;D ;D ;D ;D

After a fortnight with no internet connection, it finally bursts into life, and you think 'oh good, I can get back to HMS Berwick' ....  :D

Of course! Just like when you return from two weeks of vacation with no Internet!

I am not addicted.

It is not my fault that an island mentioned in a historical mystery I am reading just turned up in Eastwind's log.
Castle Island, Massachusetts

Of course you're not.  ;D

And neither am I just because I know the coordinates for Nome and a whole bunch of other Alaskan stations off by heart (Nome 64.50 -165.41).  ;)

If you were REALLY addicted, you wouldn't have time to read historical mysteries!  ;D ;D ;D
