It's OK. I tried to find something, but I think i kept going in circles and ending up back where I started! I do recall the basic sizes in relation to other objects and such like, so that's not so bad.
Oh yeah, is it just the species I have to add dates and stuff, or for everything? If so then I reckon my paper might be swamped by dates! I've been trawling through classes, families etc.
Completely depends on how you're writing it and what you're writing about. For mine, I used was only looking at one genus so I just talked about the family, then the genus and then onto the species...I had to use the dates for each taxonomic level. If you're just using the scientific name, then I think you can just use the species reference. But could be wrong.
Well I should get it done hpefully by about 1-2pm today, so's I've got a week to correct it. I'm submitting it to a few people here, so I could put it in a new thread for folks to read and see what they think- only thing is it'll be pretty big like!!, or if you want me to send the word doc then I can do that also. If not then I'll have it done by first thing tomorrow. Don't take it on though, if you're realyl busy, as it's gonna be a fair size.
Yep no problem. Totally understand the whole No Time thing!! But I'm nearly done- I should get it done tonight... hopefully! And then I'll send it out to a few people.
I was gonna ask about getting it put up here, well the final draft anyway, so it might be on this site!
Well, just to say that its 10pm and that's the first draft finished! DOne and dusted! I just need to add the thanks and references, which I'll do tomorrow before dishing out the first draft to folks- that'll take all of half an hour!! Of course there's gonna be a few mistakes as my brain and eyes hurt now and i cant do anymore. It's only a first draft anyways! I'll probably look over it tomorrow. I'm tired now, so laters folks... speak to you all tomorrow...
Thanks guys! And thanks too, Phil. Feh, I wish I had time to party! I've got to do a presentation based on my dissertation on Friday. Should be fine, I should know what I need to, only problem would be trying to condense 11k words into 10 minutes!! I'll maybe just fly over some parts, like just mention Cavitation, and leave it for someone to ask about at the end (shows whether people's been listening as well!!!).
You want to have heard the presentation! The slideshow was quite "spectacular" but I was losing my voice that morning,and so couldn't manage over a croak! I was also over by about 2-3 minutes, but then I wasn't warned during the last 2 minutes, so I guess that wasn't really my fault... meh.
