Re: Practising to be a liveaboard

"No man will be a sailor who has contrivance enough to get himself into a jail; for being in a ship is being in a jail, with the chance of being drowned ... A man in a jail has more room, better food, and commonly better company."
-Samuel Johnson

More to the point. Try locking yourself in a small bedroom (or large closet) with a port-a-potty, and enough food and water for a week's stay; don't forget to turn off the heat or AC; and make sure that you have to walk a couple of blocks to take a shower.
Typed on my Underwood Finger-Flight Champion portable typewriter (in triplicate, using carbon paper), sent to my basement laboratory via pneumatic tubes, transcribed by Minions on a Commodore 64 (complete with 5 1/4" single-sided floppy), and uploaded to the Internets via 14.4 kbit/s modem. Ain't modern technology grand?
