NaNoWriMo progresses a-pace – just passed 66,666 words with an adrenaline-fuelled chase sequence through Cardiff back streets. My heart’s pounding just thinking about it.

Today, I was mired in an audit project for the day job and I came across a fantastic reference guide. I realise that to most people this sounds dull as ditchwater, but it’s actually useful. And, I discovered, pretty entertaining.

I was scrolling through looking for a specific reference when I spotted this e-mail citation:

HornblowerH. (h.hornblower@HMS.Renown.uk) Treaty of Luneville. Email to: Pellew C.(c.pellew@HMS.Justinian.uk) 16 Sep 2005.

Wait, what?

And then there’s these presentations:

Yoda M. Code of Ethics for the Jedi: are they outdated? Presented at the Annual Jedi Conference. Coruscant, 2005.

Solo H. Light speed and prevailing problems. Presented at the School of Aeronautics. London. 2003. http://starwars.org.uk (accessed 20 May 2005).

So, for BMJ-style Vancouver referencing and a bit of a nerdy giggle, I recommend a trip to Coruscant, Southampton.
