Here I am, back in the arms of h2g2, although I still do not have my own computer connected!

Firstly, I must say a huge 'Thankyou' to Monsy, Loony, Greebo, Marv, Pastey and all the other valiant h2g2ers who stepped into the breach for me whilst I was 'in transit'

It feels rather strange being back in the editorial chair, so please forgive me if I am a little rusty! The big news this week was, of course, the sad departure of Peter Jones to, most probably, a far better place than earth.We have a tongue-in-cheek cartoon from Wowbagger on Peter Jones, and also feature the obituary written by DNA. As we are all h2g2ers in here, I can safely say that the casting of Mr. J as 'The Book' was nothing short of inspirational.

On a lighter vein, there is a very funny, although also long, account of the Gospel of Tux. If you don't know what this is, I suggest that you high-tail-it to Here and find out!

Apologies to all for the late publishing time this week... I will have to try and organise myself far better! My excuse? Ummm... I don't think that I can plead jet-lag, so let us just say that I can't even organise a cup of tea at the moment, so doing the Post again is some sort of miracle LOL

On with the Mottely!


  • 1-2-1

  • Guess who we interviewed this week?

    Marv The Grate!

  • 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

  • Our own cartoonist's tribute to Peter Jones.

  • h2g2 Life

  • So that's what Wowbagger was doing last week.

  • The BooK NooK

  • A review of another new book. But, this isn't a story book.

    Oh no indeedy.

  • 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.
