Welcome to The Waterhole. This page was designed for the classic, the original, the one and only h2g2 midnight blue background. The Waterhole is my homespace as a researcher for Douglas Adam's brainchild; The Guide to Life, the Universe and Everything, (h2g2 for short). I read here, sometimes talk, write, and keep a note of sites to visit and odds and ends I want to remember.
An h2g2 Bookshelf1:
UnderGuide links: UnderGuide Headquarters. , Official Archive of Underguide Gems, UnderGuide Archives: Chronological , Alternative Writing Workshop.
Mining pitshafts: High risk, Less risky, Probably safe, Ought to be safe.
Other stuff: Peer review, Writers workshop, Latest h2g2 entries, Smilies, GuideML clinic, New h2g2 help, h2g2's magazine;The Post, Colours, Waste bin, Graphics, Update HQ, Ottox's wonderful font colour charts, my list of font colours codes.
- Age: Life has begun again.
- Origin: Scots roots, brought up all over the place, now living in rural Shropshire(UK).
- Temperament: Tendancy to bad temper when low on complex carbohydrates, when harassed & when seeing swallows lined up on telephone lines ready to bail out for the winter. Really good tempered when its sunny.
- Likes: Silver-studded Blue Butterflies, Wombats, Scottish islands, Forvie Sands, Andalucian hills, waders, trilobites . . . . .
- Pro: Environment conservation, biodiversity, FairTrade, influence through 'ethical' consumerism.
- Dislikes: Slugs, tea drinking, King Lear, Trump & vacuuming.(Other people drinking tea is OK).
- I posted to the NSS and got this lous, cough, lovely, T-shirt2:
I'm a Non-Starter
(United Friends of Ben-athon)
(Talking of waders - there goes a red shank and two little ringed plovers.)
