Looking forward to Pompeii, it's been well advertised. (You and) grey I hadn't heard of... sounds like it could be equally interesting Mary!

I'd be looking for a) word separation b) abbreviations - Cappelli?
Who's it for please Mary? The Roman/history nerd or Joe Public?

She went that a'way. OMG!

Whatever they decide to call themselves, that team do an excellent job. The images are fantastic - I'm quite happy to see the detail from those rather than risk deterioration of the originals. Thanks for a great job.
Fascinating. More of the same please. We guess at the detailed work you do, it is good to know just how detailed? How about management / specification of the images? Thanks.
Is this the 'other' side of fame and ?fortune? Bit like any 'news' agency. When slack, pick up on anything, said by anyone with a 'name' and pick on it like a spot to make 'news' of it? Listen to radio 4 on a slack day? How you handle it (IMHO) is more than reasonable. Just how much time can you spare to re-phrase your tweets so they won't get picked on?

Onwards and upwards. I'm terrifically impressed with the progress being made, the alternatives being offered, for which many thanks. My only puzzle? As a newbie to the world of libraries / archives, how about a blog entry on your naming conventions and how to navigate them, comprehend them - for the non librarians amongst us? Pretty please? Dave
I find gardening in ten minute sessions quite manageable and it does the trick if repeated sufficiently often. The other one is to attack weeds when the ground is still 'moist' (wet) in spring, rather then leave them until the ground is rock hard later on. Your 'age' comments rang a bell though :-)

"Are we doing a good job? We hope so -- but please feel free to comment. Most importantly, we want to encourage your research in and enthusiam for our marvellous medieval manuscripts." I thoroughly enjoy your posts, or to be precise, the 'posts' from scribes from hundreds of years ago. I wonder what they would have blogged about? Ink going thick on cold days? I'd love to see a series on script variations through the ages.

Yep. Agree 100% Mike. We swapped a few years ago to a Dyson (different model, but same ideas). It shifts dirt like a vacuum should. One of those cases where you get what you pay for perhaps? Well worth it in this case.
I wonder if conservators in 100 years time will look at this work and frown, as you do at older work? Whichever, please continue to delight us with the results! Best wishes for 2013

Jeff, are you going to leave it like this? For those interested, the community group is open to anyone to join, See I'm disappointed Jeff.
Toggle Commented Oct 31, 2012 on The Future of Markdown at Coding Horror The MarkDown community now exists. With your help its development can start.

fully supportive of this idea. Taking it a tiny bit further, I think this is ideal for the Community group of W3C. Couple of other sponsors (not required to be W3C members) and the work can be done jointly there with the potential of taking it further if needed when the spec is done. if you would like to see it developed this way. HTH

Absolute classic (and humorous) Check everything and still get it wrong... though why is it that there's always someone willing to point it out! CMOS or Oxford, I guess there's no absolute right | wrong. Just progress towards it. Dave
Now I'm intrigued. What was the glue for please? Oh. And it is possible to live 'unwired' :-) Dave

Fantastic development of doodling! Amusing, entertaining, informative. Just wondering where you get a 10' square whiteboard! Dave
