I have a gut feeling it will be July 4th, because Phase III is supposed to have US ships and July 4th is INDEPENDENCE DAY!

A lovely gift, but most of the PTB are British, and unlikely to celebrate the loss of a great colony. And the Americans on the Phase III team most definitely will be celebrating with family instead of working.Plus we still have a baker's dozen ships to complete.
Just remember: He who goes forth with a fifth on the fourth will not go forth on the fifth.
Founded by Alexander Hamilton as the Revenue Cutter Service on 4 August 1790, it is the United States' oldest continuous seagoing service.
From: The Old Weather Community <OLDWEATHERCOMMUNITY@JISCMAIL.AC.UK> on behalf of Old Weather Team <team@OLDWEATHER.ORG>Sent: Tuesday, July 03, 2012 3:52 AMTo: OLDWEATHERCOMMUNITY@JISCMAIL.AC.UKSubject: oldWeather - have your say oldWeather has been a tremendous success: thousands of us have been following hundreds of different ships, and we've recorded not only the story of each ship but also more than 1.6 million new weather observations.We've done so well, in fact, that we're moving on to new logbooks - we've read almost every useful Royal Navy logbook from 1914-1923. So the next batch of logs appearing on the site will be quite different, and there will be some changes to the site to accommodate the different logs. As we make these changes, we are trying hard to keep oldWeather simple and pleasant to use, as well as effective in collecting weather and history records, and we'd like your help with this.Many people love oldWeather, and have devoted lots of time to the project, many others quickly decided it wasn't for them, still others enjoyed it for a while and then moved on. In each case we'd like to know WHY, so we can do better for everyone in future. So whether you loved it, hated it, were bored or indifferent, we need your comments -please give us your thoughts at: bit.ly/oldWeather Thanks for your help with this, and if you're waiting to see what the new logbooks are like, hang on just a little longer - we'll send more about that soon.Philip and the oldWeather team.P.S. The new logbooks will mostly be older than those we are used to, but if you want to see some really old documents, have a look at another Zooniverse project - Ancient Lives (https://www.zooniverse.org/project/ancientlives).----------UNSUBSCRIBE INSTRUCTIONS:You're receiving this newsletter because you signed up to take part in oldWeather.
