HMS Lydia: Ladies! how is everyone doing? Hope 2015 kicked in well for y'all! :D Feb 1, 2015 0:15:55 GMT
HMSCody: It did indeed! How is graduate school treating you? Feb 1, 2015 1:44:40 GMT
HMS Lydia: Eh, laying the groundwork for when I can finally start writing in earnest! but almost there, fingers crossed :D. You? Feb 1, 2015 13:00:27 GMT
HMSCody: I am inflicting education on unsuspecting undergraduates every day, and torturing masters' students on weekends. ;) Feb 3, 2015 20:06:58 GMT
vixie: Cody, what's your field? Feb 6, 2015 17:42:28 GMT
HMSCody: History, specifically United States, American West, Native Americans, class/gender/ethnicity. I also teach world civ, which is why I get to do Royal Navy stuff every now and then. I really hammer them with Bonaparte! Feb 7, 2015 5:20:27 GMT *
vixie: sounds marvellously fun! I'm medieval language and lit - Old French, Middle High German.... lots of material, but very little seafaring as we know and love it! Feb 8, 2015 21:00:11 GMT
Academic Fangirl: No seafaring here either - but I am an electronic engineer - so spend my time getting technical stuff into UG & PG students. Feb 9, 2015 7:58:27 GMT
vixie: more and more I find myself in the position of teaching UGs and PGs what they should have learned in high school - how to find things in the library, basic English grammar, etc - instead of getting down to the interesting stuff! Feb 10, 2015 19:23:56 GMT
HMSCody: It's the same here, too. We have to spend the first two or three semesters getting students up to college level. It's interesting to know it's not just a problem in the U.S. Feb 11, 2015 4:45:54 GMT
Sharpiefan: Link-drops and runs... http://www.britishpathe.com/video/as-it-was-in-nelsons-day Feb 12, 2015 13:11:44 GMT
HMSCody: Oh, that was sweet, Sharpie! Feb 13, 2015 13:36:52 GMT
Sharpiefan: And everything was spot-on correct, apart from the 'left wheel' - though it might've been the 1930 NCO giving that order - it would've been 'right shoulders forward' in the day. Feb 15, 2015 21:50:21 GMT
Sharpiefan: (I think the uniforms were originals, judging by where the jacket fronts finished: Marines were considerably shorter in 1805 than in 1930.) Feb 15, 2015 21:50:32 GMT
brontey: *shuffles in nervously* Feb 23, 2015 19:57:12 GMT
usHHan: No need to "shuffle nervously"...you're among friends here! Welcome, brontey! Feb 23, 2015 21:02:30 GMT
brontey: Well - I know Sharpie so that's something Feb 25, 2015 4:55:54 GMT
brontey: :3 Feb 25, 2015 4:56:00 GMT
QueueMistressMags: Ahoy, brontey! Stow your dunnage for'ard and report to the first lieutenant. :) Feb 25, 2015 20:41:18 GMT
HMSCody: Any friend of Sharpie's is even more welcome! Feb 27, 2015 3:12:34 GMT
