Hello and welcome to my userpage, which has never really been designed, but just grew. Most of the stuff further down is just links or information I might want to refer to, since it's so easy to click my username at the top and find myself here.

About me

  • My mother tongue is British English
  • My interests include music, environmental issues, art, travel
  • I like working on disambiguation and list pages...

Manifesto

Part of a band pass filter
  • no person is boring – boredom is your own fault
  • spread a little happiness, start a chain reaction
  • people treasure appreciation – be generous

Favourite quotations:

  • the greatest success is to help others to succeed; the greatest blessing is to bring blessings on others
  • make sure your words are soft and sweet – you may have to eat them tomorrow
  • The only thing men learn from history is that men learn nothing from history.” (Hegel)
  • The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking out new landscapes but in having new eyes.” (Marcel Proust)
  • Add life to your days – not days to your life

My bookmarks[edit]

Some useful tags

Template:Translation/Ref

In translated articles from other language editions of the Wikipedia, use this template in the External links section of articles to cite the original sources that the article was translated from. Example:

Wikipedia:Authority_control

The Authority control template should be placed after the external links section and navigation templates, right before the Persondata template:

See: Template:Authority_control for the template.

Fill in data from VIAF and encode the LCCN numbers like this:

  • "n 79063767" → "n/79/63767"
  • "nr 79022889" → "nr/79/22889"
