Mind you, London Met has had its own particularly idiosyncratic problems to face recently hasn't it.

Well, I don't know where you are, or where you're applying too, but in much of western Europe you'll be lucky to see hide nor hair of a reseacher in situ, as it were duruing Juky / Aug- holidays and reserach trips count that out!

Excellent survey, very interesting, thanks. "4. Attention check. Please select 'strongly disagree'" slightly threw me! So, in the British spirit of 'charity, not change,' I did as I was told and strongly disagreed :)

Well, look at the context. If you were moving to a rival institution just down the road, there might be some ill-feeling- perhaps not professional, but hardly not human. But the US? That's soething she wouldn't / couldn't blame you for at all- in fact, she's either already done that herself or would take a similar oportunity!

Well, chapter actually- does anyone have access to

Pollard, A.J., "The north of England in the age of Richard III"(Stroud 1996)? I was after the chapter 'The Crown and the County Palatine of Durham, 1437-94', pp. 67-87. OCLC 906715275.

Just a load of ole photos will do, thanks very much for any help!

A year on, and I wonder how the glittering academic career *sans PhD* is going :D

I think you should grow up; on the assumption you *do* want to be taken seriously. Your current behaviour is rather bizarre.

I don't see how an intelligent person can make this analogy.

Thank you bewildered: I think that as far as the original post is concerned, that, as they say, is that.

Thanks also for the reminder about dcscience though- it's great reading even for (or perhaps, especially for) non-science types.
