Wait a minute. Where's me jumper?


I registered the day after Douglas Adams launched H2G2 on Tomorrow's World's on April 28th 1999. Back then, the only colour was Goo, Peer Review was totally in the hands of the editors, the BBC thing had not yet happened and user numbers (ahem) were still 5 digits..

I managed to get about 32 edited entries completed before I eventually sublimed. Today I am something of a ghost, more an occasional lurker than an active contributor. With the new changes, you might see a bit more of me in the future...

I am more likely to be found blogging these days over at Sunny Spells and Scattered Scattered Showers on Wordpress. I'm also on Twitter, and you can also catch up with me on Facebook. Feel free to drop by and say hi.

Have fun, and watch out for falling whales.

A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.
