Welcome to the 7th edition of the Post.

We have a great treat in store for you! Wowbagger begins a wonderful comic strip this week
based upon life in and around the world of h2g2. Any resemblance to researchers past and
present is entirely deliberate and in the best possible taste. We are, of course, still
bringing you his quirky view of events in the weekly cartoon. Do the words taking, full and
advantage figure here?

Monsy continues her popular One to One series with a further interview of Mark Moxon. Mark
also, in A View from the Towers, lets slip a few more hints as to the intentions of the h2g2
hierarchy with regards to the development of the site.

Enough of my ramblings! Just get on and enjoy this issue!


  • 1-2-1

  • Mark Moxon, part two; more on Mark.

  • Take 5

  • The pick of this week's batch of new Guide entries.

  • Agony Aunt

  • h2g2 is not a 'normal' community, it doesn't have 'normal' problems, therefore a 'normal' Agony Aunt would be useless. Ours is far from 'normal'.

  • Wowbagger

  • Here's the first of this week's Wowbagger cartoons.

  • h2g2 Life

  • Wowbagger's brand new cartoon strip.

  • Guinea The Pig

  • h2g2 have been doing some market research. But what did they want to know?.

  • Come to Church

  • The Church of the True Brownie. Bizarre to say the least.

  • My Time in Romania

  • The third installment from the diary of a researcher working in a Romanian orphanage.

  • Film Revue

  • As, due to various reasons, there is no BooK NooK this week as promised, we're giving you another prelude to one of our forthcoming sections. Part of the upcoming entertainment section will be a Film Review. This week one of our researchers compares two films: One from the late 60's, and the re-make in the 90's.

  • The Think Tank

  • A central point to exchange ideas on articles. Whether you're
    writing a future Guide entry and want some help with spelling, grammar
    or content, or you have a few moments to spare and wish to proof read
    for a fellow researcher, this is the place.
