Hmmm. Grant's hip swinging does need some work. Good effort though. ;)

Cool.

And they can't miss the links to Zooniverse on the the Penguin Watch site.  Everyone interested in playing in our toy boxes will see that.  :)

It was mad on PW on Sunday - loads of newbies having a happy go. I noticed that a school class has also signed up (yesterday) to help out. Seemed to be quite a number of youngsters giving it a go - great to get them into the citizen scientist mind frame  ;D

This so proves the point that a diligent human eye and brain can still leave computers standing...pah!  ;D  (Oh - did I hear someone mention 'faux historians?  :-\ ::) )
