Well, I finally made into this great epic. A good friend of mine has been suggesting for a while that I should join in; despite my cries of 'oh, I don't have time for that sort of thing' they were ultimately persuasive. I then had great trouble picking my username, as my usual one (scrumpy) had already been snaffled. Scrumph was close - it first came to my attention by the Christmas special of BBC Radio 4's I'm sorry I haven't a clue, where a version of the Christmas Carol was played out with Ebenezer Scrumph taking the main character spot.

Anyway, to introduce myself a little more...
I'm a Civil servant in London, UK, working with government websites. My particuar field is website accessibility and usability.

I have already found my way into 'The Orchard' - the H2G2 Mac Users' Group.

  • Favourite music: too varied to define - from Jazz/soul, to classical, folk and some rock/pop.
  • Favourite comedian: Eddie Izzard

Ideas for entries: I am currently hoping to help take over an abandoned entry on Terry Pratchett from the Flea Market. As my first fresh entry possibly the 'life and works of Andy Goldsworthy' - if anyone wants to lend a hand, leave me a message.

Also want to start up a campaign against the smiley icons! I hate them - give us back our text smileys! ; )
