    In 30 mins (10pm EST, 9 CST), Discovery Channel will start a series on the people who do it in real life.

    I'm not sure when or which episodes, but if you keep watching, you may just see a certain UO player! (Me!) :D

    - Is that the show called 'Treasure Quest'?

    So funny, I thought about Sid Meier's Pirates! (*cough* KR's Gamebryo Engine), The Spanish Armada, and the ol' 'treasure huntin'' Dermott, when I read about it last night.
    Cheers!

    (Yeah, I know you aren't a hunter, per se, but I knew you were involved in the process... scientifically, like an alchemist, iirc ;))

    Yep, that's the one.

    And you're right on my involvement. Keep watching as I'll be part of the series probably later on.

    You are now a celebrity!

    Keep mentioning UO whenever you get a chance!

    I think I missed it, but let me see if I can record a rerun :)

    Just listening to the nightly news,
    It looks like the 'Legend' has been revealed:
    HMS Victory w/over 100 cannons & 4 tons of gold :)

    Last week's show was saying this would be the biggest shipwreck discovery of all time, if it was what they thought it could be. So if I heard it right, the same group that found the Titanic has now found the biggest shipwreck to date? Very nice. I think that makes them Legendary Treasure Hunters. Odyssey Marine Exploration looks to be surviving the slumping economy just fine.
    Looking forward to this week's show.
    It just might inspire some more fishers and perhaps even some additional 'sea luv' from the UO Team.

    I'm enjoying the series as well. Unfortunately, I have the same news on the Victory as everyone else at this point. Hopefully things will... change... in which case my workload will get very interesting.

    I was wondering if that was your crew who was involved with that.

    Not yet... I don't work for the company featured on the series, but for a company they work with. We're on land, not out at sea.

    It means nothing if we don't know who to look for. What are you wearing? Is your real name Dermott?

    No, my real name isn't Dermott, as for what to look for, do an image search for "Black Swan" and "shipwreck", you'll see two people surrounded by a LOT of white buckets... I'm the one on the right (unidentified at this point).

    Once they show more on that particular project, I'll be MUCH more involved (or if they find something to bring to us in this project).

    My real name is Matt.
     
  17. Heh... so you are the "unidentified member"? That is soooo Freudian.

    I found the pic...how cool.

    Must be really exciting, just imagining all the tales surrounding the ship and all the treasure that was recovered. :)
