Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Probably the wrong forum, but it somehow feels so right.

    Well done on the first ARRSE newsletter. A quality publication for your loyal followers. I suspect there may be competition to get the 'Most Posts' mention in issues to come!

    I shall have it printed and framed, and my grandchildren will be able to sell it at auction for a large sum of money when they clear my house after my demise. :D
     
  2. Do they need a proof reader?

  3. "Proofreader" is one word, Tubs. So I guess you've just ruled yourself out.

    However, as a professional translator for some 35 years and being able to proofread monolingual English texts at a rate of something like 100,000 words per day (seriously), I'd be more than happy to take on the task at no charge, were it offered to me.

  4. Poo ! I didn't get one, (and yes my e-mail is up to date) :x

    Anyone selling a copy :?
     
  5. Neither did I, and my email is up to date as well.

    Could I have one please?
    :(
     
  6. Bugger...

    My only defence is that I have been drinking since lunch.

    I did write it as one word first, tried it several times each way and then opted for the safety of splitting it as, surely, someone who reads proof can be described as a proof reader?

    Anyway, I have done this sort of thing before (when sober) and would also offer my services for free. Maybe two sets of eyes could be better than one?

    BTW 100,000 words per day? Nowt! When I were a lad we didn't even have words...

    Is that like, er, lithography?
     
  13. You're actually closer than you think there, Biped. There are three techniques for printing: raised (your average carved potato, but also newspaper print and woodcuts), intaglio (cut in, as in etchings, copper engravings, steel engravings) and flat (lithography - printing from a flat stone (or zinc sheet) based on the principle of oil and water-based elements not mixing).

    Lithography was invented by Aloys Senefelder in Munich in 1796 and is a flat print. Since a Gestetner prints through a waxed sheet perforated by the letters of a typewriter, it's also a flat print.

    Flat prints have the advantage that hardly any pressure is needed to obtain a print, whereas, for instance, etchings and copper and steel engravings need something like 60 kiloponds of pressure psi, which not only concaves the printing plates, it also seriously reduces the number of prints that can be made due to the crushing of the motif-carrier. Although steel engravings (invented by Charles Heath in 1840) are somewhat better in that respect.
