Do you think that the streams of bubbles will scare him away, or will it be the extra pollutants about to come into the water?

I wonder if the anti-fouling coating in the wet-suits will work?

When I hear of Morpheus, I keep thinking of Forbidden Planet & Walter Pidgeon. It takes a bit of thought to remember that it was Dr Morbius in the film.

Oh dear, I guess I'm a bit of an SF nut!

I find BOINCTasks very easy to use, and very customisable, incluiding the network side of it.

I like the display options and the look and feel.

Highly recommended.

A number of Fire stations in the UK are already involved in a trial of joint working with the ambulance service, where firefighters are trained as paramedics, and if available fire crews can & are sent to medical emergencies in preference to the ambulances. this trial at the moment is seen as a success, both by the firefighters, ambulance and paramedic crews, and their management.

If it is deemed successful after the trial is completed, then the plan is to roll the practice out across England at least.

In addition Emergency Defib machines are being deployed across the country, and there is a smartphone app which will pinpoint the nearest, and can be used to get the password/PIN to open the cabinet, and then talk an untrained member of the public through using it on a patient. I understand that several thousand have already been deployed in public places, as well as those in companies etc.
