Time for an update...
Thanks for dropping by, I'll be writing any (interesting) information you might want to know about me below my links. They're all up here because I'm usuallly too lazy to scroll down looking for them. These are my favourite sections of the site and (if any newbies are reading this) a good starting point for getting involved.
Statistics page :- Because I just have to know
Ask H2G2 :- Or more usually stick my oar in for an answer...
Peer Review Pages For all those entries waiting for scouting, and to keep an eye on any that I might have in the queue
The ACEs Homepage :- They're a useful bunch to know.
Smiley Page Because I can never remember them
The H2G2 Post So I can keep up with what's going on.
GuideML Clinic :- Just in case I think of something else for a guide entry.
I have a nasty habit of disappearing for months and months on end as a consequence of (firstly) not having free internet access when not at university and (secondly) a rather annoying work placement programme that takes me away from said free access almost every year as part of my degree. All is not lost though as these absences have typically been preceded by an increase in Guide Entry writing activity. So if you notice that I'm being more prolific, then it's probably a sure bet that I'll suddenly shut up for a few months.
As you can probably guess from the contents of my nickname, I am one of the ever increasing band of Assistant Community Editors or ACEs. If you've come along specifically looking for help and I'm not about, or on one of those extended breaks I mentioned earlier, all the nice people in the list below will be happy to help.
Wascally Wittle Weasel
An ermine is a small carnivore that can be found throughout Europe and North America well as occasionally further afield. It may also be known as a short tailed weasel, or a stoat. It goes brown in summer but reverts to a white coat during the winter months though keeps the black tip on its tail. They are lively, muscular, agile, curious, and occasionally viscious when trapped. They can sometimes be seen during daylight hours but are more often nocturnal in activity. Their principle diet contains mice, rabbits, hares, porcupines, squirrels, pikas and rats and will eat up to 40% of their body weight in one day which they hunt using a very keen sense of smell. Pretty much me down to a tee, apart from the eating little animals bit.
The Interesting Stuff
First thing's first, and as I mentioned above, I am a student. This knowledge is essential for understanding why I do many things here, from being online for hours at a time to spending all my time in the pub. I am in my third year of a four year business administration course at the University of Bath both of which I have written guide entries about1. When I'm not studying or logged onto h2g2 I have been known to play hockey2 and compete in ballroom dancing for the university. I've also taken up archery for the simple reason that I fancied shooting pointy things at targets3
That should give you a fairly accurate idea of my interests and angle of approach and so give you an idea as to how to start some conversations. If you're still not quite sure what I'm interested in you could always have a look at some of my edited guide entries I'm getting quite a few now, nearly one a month since I've been here, including all those extended absences. Feel free to say something in the discussion forums below or start your own.
1 Though a subeditor did amalgamate them into one piece
2 Field hockey for our North American friends
3 And guns are too loud

All academic exams done... Just my dancing medals to go.
And then I have to find a job ...
A leettle bit repetitive..

I'm top of the most frequent posters list, mostly because I've been welcoming lots and lots of newbies...
I'm not sure I could handle the backlog if they all answered at once though

I think it fitting that I only make these two postings today.
I can say no more.
I hate group work....
May 9, 2001
I just have too much of it. I have been working on group projects constantly since friday with only brief breaks for sleeping. Not even a chance to eat in some cases.
Having the computer system go down hours before a major presentation didn't ease my stress levels. "Lucky for me," I thought, "I printed off all the information I needed last night". So I head off down to reprographics to pick up my work. None there. So I think that maybe it might come through later. No luck. I am highly irritated by this stage. Then the system goes down . Three hours later, when I am halfway through rewriting my speech, badly, the network comes back up again and I print out another copy of the necessary work. Only to find that the work I'd sent through the previous night had alreay gone through . I flatly refused to pay for the second printout. This all left me with 20 minutes to practice a presentation upon which 20% of one module depended... Somehow that presentation actually went well though.
On a related note... Why isn't there ever anything open on a bank holiday? I've had no chance to cook anything in the last two weeks, let alone actually buy the food, and have been stuck with eating out in various eateries and existing on bought-in sandwiches from dodgy looking newsagents. My bank balance is coming out in an even worse state than my diet and far worse than my temper yesterday....
