TRiG (Ireland) A dog, so bade in office

I've not noticed any in academic papers, but there are a couple in the Collins encyclopaedic dictionary. I'll look 'em up tomorrow night.

I'd be interested to see those, TriG smiley - smiley

I've just added two I found in the Collins Italian Dictionary - see under 2005.

I've added a patent application for Howard Stapleton's Mosquito device, in which he cites the h2g2 entry A2398845 - Dispersing a Crowd. See under 2006. (I'm colouring patent applications blue, books purple and journals pale yellow).

(I didn't know about this when I wrote the entry A31699146 - The Mosquito - Sonic Teenager Deterrent)

I won't annoy you for them, TRiG. I'll just be very grateful if you find the time.

Oh, I've just stumbled upon a huge pile of theses.

No, academic theses - doctorate submissions and things. I don't know whether these are worth recording too - they're treated as research material, but aren't published in peer-reviewed journals.

"Why Did it Have to be Snakes? From Science to the Supernatural, the Many Mysteries of Indiana Jones", by Lois H. Gresh and Robert Weinberg.

The referenced Entry is Belzoni - Tomb Raider and Archaeologist. It's in 3 parts, A22548503 is Part 1, but I'm not sure which part is cited. It could be all three, really.

(And I just noticed that Gnomon mentioned that in a Conversation under your Referencing h2g2 Post Entry.)
