Here's a link to the image in my box, in case someone wanting the wallpaper is still having trouble. Shame it's such a hassle through PhotoBucket.

Up close and personal with Cheyd's splendid nav buoy (and as it's now Oolite 1.80, I didn't have to remove the watermark):

Pretty. Hang on, are we suggesting that people will be too busy to bump a bouy? So they'll find it a more productive use of their time to rip your photo?

Folly of the highest order! Live it, don't rip it and claim you were there!

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition:
And gentlemen in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.

At a guess - I would say Shakespears Henry V

I still remember Kenneth Branagh in the movie exhorting his 'so few' in the final battle against the french 'many'.

My goodness, how many years ago was that... ah, I remember, bm - before marriage :)

Can't bit a bit o' bard. I remember watching the Laurence Olivier Henry V as a callow youth. Made the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end!

A very rare sight. An Odonatean, one of the Aliens, en route to the local star.
