Don't Panic

So, who the smiley - bleep is Rupert the Observer Becerikli, then? I'm a bloke, 37, born, raised and residing on the outskirts of modern civilization. Where is that, you might ask. It's Finland, the birthplace of sauna, Sibelius, Finlandia vodka and Nokia. We also have strong opinions about where Santa Claus lives - and that most certainly is not the North Pole. Oh, and not that it should matter, but I'm also gay. We are the winners, of Eurovision, we are we are! The Eurovision Song Contest 2007 will be in Finland, then.

I work with IT related things for a large Finnish municipality. On top of that a year or so ago I (depending when you read this and if I've bothered to update this since 2011) started evening studies on a polytechnic or University of Applied Sciences (there are two competing schools of thought for the correct English translations; you can pick your favourite smiley - smiley).

These are some of the places where I like to smiley - lurk.

Some of my favourite people on h2g2 are my guardian angel Hati, my keeper AGB and my rock-climber smiley - yikesCafram. Then there's the not so flying, but definitely a Dutchman |pheloxi*| and the lovely reptilian (I hope you don't mind me calling you that) Crocodilka. I quite enjoy lurking around Ottox. smiley - smiley There are loads of others too. smiley - biggrin
