I think "sort of" is the operative phrase there - the original intention was to create the Earth Edition of the Guide - but we recognised early on that a site where you could "work, rest and play' (an allusion to a particular chocolate bar for Researchers of a certain age,including myself!)was emerging and indeed many of the early tools we created allowed each activity - and I think that balance is one of the reasons we are still here all those years later.

I also hope that the Holes in History stories could be published and make some money. For the writers, of course, and also for the site, though I don't know how that would be arranged.
