Thank you for your warm and friendly welcome.
Perhaps I should have started "nuqneH", but I'm not sure if you are as interested in klingon as your name suggests.
I must admit my first impressions of h2g2 are something like an intimidating-chaotic-idiosyncratic-eclectic-sprawl. Never were the kind words "don't panic" more needed.
I was pointed towards h2g2, by a a work-colleague who saw me browsing Wikipedia. I really like wikipedia, and I am just dipping my toes into h2g2, to see if I can get used to it.
I'm just going to do a little exploring to get some taste for the flavour of the articles, and the material covered.
Ps: JPB1301 is not an easy name to converse with - so you can call me Joe.

Hi Joe, I'm sorry I never came back to your reply - I only found it now when coming to your PS to leave you a message.
I hope you find h2g2 less chaotic now, I see you've dipped more than your toes in, by writing a wonderful entry.
I am the sub-editor for this entry, and you can find the subbed version here:
It's not yet finished, but will hopefully be so soon.
