Hoo are you?

I'm Hoovooloo. An h, then a v, then an L. Yes, I know it's spelled wrong. To me, it looks and sounds "right". Sue me.

You may from time to time see me referred to here as "Hoo", "HVL", "SoRB", "Smokehammer", "Twiggy" or other names beginning with "Twig". The reasons for this are tedious and are in the main related to my previous "permanent" suspension(s) from use of this site.

Post-BBC, I'm back in my original account, under my original name, and having no intention of being banned from the site again, "permanent"ly or otherwise.

I'm an Englishman, a chartered chemical engineer, a paraglider pilot*, rock climber*, kitesurfer* and fellwalker*. If you're on Xbox Live, I'm "Smokehammer".
