Watched several episodes of “The Ship” on the History Channel last night. A great, semi-reality mini series where 50 people travel for 6 weeks on an 18th century replica of Captain James Cook’s ship. The course takes them through the Great Barrier Reef and out to sea to Indonesia. It’s unbelievable how people could navigate in the 1700s without 21st century technology. (Note: the History Channel’s site for the The Ship looks like it doesn’t properly sniff for the correct version of Flash on the Mac. Bummer. I can’t even see the site. Bad bad bad.)
