Hello, weary traveller/honored guest/Unknown Visitor1
..and welcome to the roof. No, I am not THE fiddler2, although I once claimed to be A fiddler. Other names have come and gone, and will no doubt return, but for now, let me be... rooftiler.
Will you help me tile my roof? There is no hidden meaning in such a question, except as I can use it as a semi-real metaphor for life, the universe and everything in my head.

/ MuG | My 42isms | Names | Time Traveller \
/ Queen Fan | Keeper | Lurker | \
This is the roof so far - gradually getting more tiled. Come on up, (remember to use duck ladders) and help me hammer a few more in...
Robert Heinlein, bass guitar, other musical interests, other sci-fi interests, my online and RL nicknames, my 42isms. I'm sure I'll have some other ideas for tiles but these will do for the moment...
My 42isms... so far:
22 + 8 + 5 + 8 - 0!
2! / 2 + 8 * 5 + 8 ^ 0
(invtan (2 / 2) - 8 + 5) * 8 ^ 0
2) (-2 + 85 + 8 ^ 0) i.e. the bracketed expression divided by 2 (2 'into' x) [awaiting adjudication from Argon0 on whether this is allowed or not]

Who am I... I've wondered this for some time. Elsewhere, and elsewhen, I have been Nodrog, Dave the Rave (definitely a sarky one there), Splot...
'rooftiler' is a nickname from school I have resurrected for use here and here alone (until I decide to use it elsewhere) because Nodrog (my usual online alter ego) was already taken, I think.
...of the Time Travellers' Metronome, and Tiles.
With thanks to Archangel Galaxy Babe who definitely has a job on her hands, being Keeper of the Keepers' page.

2 Those who have seen or heard of 'Fiddler on the Roof' know what I'm talking about; the rest of you may go back to sleep but it was a musical film starring Topol3
3 Who went on to be in the rather excellent film Flash Gordon4

Why is it that whenever I log on to hootoo (too often at present!) I intend to be highly creative (spruce up my Uspace, add a highly witty journal entry that everyone will read and respond to, edit one of my articles-in-progress (all 1 of them!) or create new articles...
...and then all I do is catch up on a few selected threads, post the odd thing in a new one, bum around a bit and then log off (sometimes the log off bit takes far too long!)
And how do you manage all your conversations? I don't think I've ever unsubscribed from one, but I think I may need to now. There are several threads I've made one posting to (back in '03 for the most part) and have not followed since. Why are they there? If they spring to the top I'll probably see them anyway, since I generally review the top page or so of Ask, and that's where most of them are...

When's me anniversary?
I was ACEd on 23/05/03 but I think I lurked for quite a while before that...
Still, I can't see any older postings by me so I suppose 23rd of May it is.
Unless I decide to celebrate my 300th day... no, I've just checked that was about a week ago. And I haven't exactly been on here every day anyway, more a sort of periodic turning up with occasional posts and the odd contribution or attempt at an entry.
I don't even have anyone listed as a 'friend' - it always seemed a very presumptuous thing to do, decide someone was your official 'friend' and adding them to a list. Plenty of room for offence if someone was either included or excluded! And judging by a couple of recent convos on 'Ask', hootooers don't take kindly to being added as friends if they don't know the person.
Does anyone out there actually visit my Uspace? Post here and let me know! We could have a mutual 'add to friends list' pact if you want.
My word, how pathetic do I sound...?

What was I saying about money management...
Holidays, even when sharing with friends & family, can become expensive...
Anyway, they are also relaxing & fun, especially with sunny weather (which we had in both Cumbria and Wales, shock/horror!) or stressful and uncomfortable (depending on how one gets on with one's friends & one's family...)
But there you go.
Anyone know of 2 weeks' work I can get in Sheffield for the end of July?
What a weekend!!!

A death in the family, a (cancelled) major operation on another family member, participating in a gospel concert, suddenly putting up 3 family members for the night... need I go on? It's no wonder I'm tired.
Really must get going & write some stuff for the Guide... could be fun!
