Hello, weary traveller/honored guest/1

..and welcome to the roof. No, I am not THE fiddler2, although I once claimed to be A fiddler. Other names have come and gone, and will no doubt return, but for now, let me be... rooftiler.

Will you help me tile my roof? There is no hidden meaning in such a question, except as I can use it as a semi-real metaphor for life, the universe and everything in my head.

This is the roof so far - gradually getting more tiled. Come on up, (remember to use duck ladders) and help me hammer a few more in...

Construction materials

Robert Heinlein, bass guitar, other musical interests, other sci-fi interests, my online and RL nicknames, my 42isms. I'm sure I'll have some other ideas for tiles but these will do for the moment...

My 42isms... so far:

22 + 8 + 5 + 8 - 0!
2! / 2 + 8 * 5 + 8 ^ 0
(invtan (2 / 2) - 8 + 5) * 8 ^ 0
2) (-2 + 85 + 8 ^ 0) i.e. the bracketed expression divided by 2 (2 'into' x) [awaiting adjudication from Argon0 on whether this is allowed or not]

Who am I... I've wondered this for some time. Elsewhere, and elsewhen, I have been Nodrog, Dave the Rave (definitely a sarky one there), Splot...

'rooftiler' is a nickname from school I have resurrected for use here and here alone (until I decide to use it elsewhere) because Nodrog (my usual online alter ego) was already taken, I think.


...of the Time Travellers' Metronome, and Tiles. With thanks to Archangel Galaxy Babe who definitely has a job on her hands, being Keeper of the Keepers' page.
