Introducing Dick

I thought I'd sign on as I was in the middle of "The Salmon of Doubt" and saw the multiple references to

I'm already in trouble because I cannot decide whether to punctuate a sentence that ends with a url.

This is of course nonsense as technically all URLs should end with a full stop as that is the top of the heirarchy - the root servers. smiley - tongueout


I enjoy reading - and thinking (up to a point). I've been a HHGTG fan since the first radio series and I still have a manky set of cassettes of it that I play to the family in the car.

This makes me very sad (of course) because I keep quoting said guide at inappropriate (and appropriate) times.


I write - but only in short paragraphs.


I do not consider myself a WEB designer (you may well agree!) but I have produced a number of WEB sites so this is a sort of "Portfolio that proves I could do better, - and that others could do much better". smiley - winkeye I did them all for free so this brings to mind a saying about paying peanuts...

I work with Radio Worldwide, a Christian charity. We are developing a not for profit, free, audio website at this is my latest effort at the time of writing.

Radio Worldwide have another site at which aims to tell fellow Christians what we do. Hidden away somewhere there are some free bits of software (which I also wrote).

I built a site for a local charity working mostly in Haiti, called Hands of Hope

They sprang out of our local Baptist Church - and surprise surprise - I set up their WEBsite with a friend at

I also set up a community website for my local town, this is temporarily housed on my work website at

I'm part of the Rothwell Entertainments Committee which is most entertaining! And I did help set up their site too! This is being redesigned at


I listen to Pink Floyd, Sting, Dire Straits, and loads of other stuff. I bought myself the Pulse video for my 50th Birthday and the family are fed up with it (I'm not!)


I am a convinced theist unlike one of my favourite authors (DNA) and like one of my other favourites (CSL).


More comments may follow if I get bored or am asked. Meanwhile I'd like to get back to the Rhino.
