A big hello from the Deputy Community Editor. Hope you are all well and happy! This is my view of what has been happening on h2g2 over the last week.

Last weekend but one saw not one, but two meet-ups! Scottish Meet-ups were larging it in Edinburgh. At the other end of the country, Researchers based in the South of England met in the lovely Berkshire town of Reading. From what I have heard about both events, a excellent time was had by all. smiley - cheers

My 5 Favourite Edited Entries

Here are my favourite new h2g2 entries from the last week:

  • Dwarf Throwing is a great example of an h2g2 entry. Informative, well written and funny to boot, if you only read one entry this week, make it this one!

  • Should the property market ever dip, I will have to consider Buying a House. As ever, h2g2 will be there to guide me!

  • If I was sent to a desert island and could take only one television programme with me, it would have to be Porridge mainly due to the comic genius of Ronnie Barker. If you haven't come across this gem of British comedy,
    read the article to find out more.

  • My colleague, Ashley, has been fulfilling his ambition to be a Blue Peter presenter with the entry How to make a Pingu from Fimo. Here is one he made earlier!

  • My knowledge of car maintenance is all but non-existent so thank goodness for the entry on How to change an oil filter. At least now I know how to do one thing!

"The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is a wholly remarkable book. It has been compiled and recompiled many times and under many different editorships. It contains contributions from countless numbers of travellers and researchers."
