Another year passes, and the world is a little colder... As is the way I forgot your birthday, not because you're no longer with us, but because I forget everyone's birthday! Happy Birthday + a few random days Douglas

Never forgotten (well, not by many days)


Happy Birthday, Douglas

Hello Dirk, and a warm welcome to h2g2. We feel sure that your ever so slightly late birthday wish would not cause offence considering the late great Douglas's propensity for missing deadlines himself smiley - ok


Happy Birthday, Douglas

Hang on, it's actually the Eleventh of March AGAIN! and a whole year has passed (nearly), since anyone posted on here. After the Corporation has spent quite a lot of time and money on re-vamping its websites, it seems to me only fitting that I should mark the day, and send Birthday Greetings through the space-time continuum to the original genius behind the the Guide smiley - bubbly

Happy 60th Douglas... I tried to get to your Hammersmith bash but the infinite improbability drive has turned my car into a perfectly formed jar of Branston Pickle (it's no longer the BBC, product placement is fine nowadays....) As I am 42 this year I feel it only right that at some point tonight I will raise a Cheese and Pickle sandwich as I feast on what is probably a little bit of carburettor. A celebration of a life well shared and totally appreciated.
