What I originally wrote
I'd only been here 5 minutes when someone commented that I hadn't moved in, so here is my brief introduction just to say I'm here. Don't expect anything interesting anytime soon.
I've been here two days and there's still nothing interesting, but I have converted my page entry to GuideML and changed my name from 'Mark' to 'manolan'.
I suppose you could consider that converting to GuideML is sort of putting up curtains and slapping a bit of paint on the front door, but why 'manolan'?
Simple answer really. 'manolan' has always been my user account here at work, for as long as I can remember, anyway. It is incredibly non-standard and no one seems to be able to remember exactly what it is... just that it is non-standard. Perfect, in fact. So perfect, that those who can remember it tend to use it as a title.
(Little reminder to myself that I joined h2g2 on 24 Jan 2000.)
