Non-boxy things[edit]

Hello, Hi, Bonjour, Grüße, God Dag (that's Norwegian), Goedendag, Ciao, and Kaixo (which is in Euskara) (that's where I've got user pages) (not sure why in Euskara - never edited there). I've also got a talk page in Latvian - only looked there for refs. Strange. I've also edited once on the Breton and once on the Marathi Wikipedias (adding links).

Been here a bit now. Been there a lot longer. I'm a writer, book editor/producer, musician, and trivia addict inter alia. (Hi, Alia!)

Looking for more of those little boxy things (but not very energetically).

Until I find (or make) the right ones see below:

  • This user now has one computer with Windows 2000Pro, two with XP Pro, and one with Windows 7. (One tower on 2000, and one tower and one laptop on XP, and a laptop on 7.) (The XP Pro and 7 are set to Classic View.)
  • This user is trying Windows 7 one one machine, but finds it trying and has adopted the classic view. He is trying to find a way of getting rid of Libraries without having to go into the registry. He does not want Windows 8 at all, having looked at it.
  • This user is looking for an easy way to remove Outlook Express (which is languishing in chains in a dungeon for making a nuisance of itself). He hasn't found it in Windows 7 yet.
  • This user doesn't have Microsoft Office any more (that machine died), but uses OpenOffice instead (and installs it for other people too).
  • This user (shock, horror...) has not got a working TV (or a licence). Please do not try to give him one. A refusal may (no, will) offend.
  • This user drinks real ale, real cider (in fact most ciders that don't say 'Original' or 'white' on the label) and, when the weather's right (or the food's extra spicy), real lager (i.e. Cain's, Samuel Smith's, and certain Continental ones such as Czech and Polish). He does not of choice drink 'beer' that comes from little fizzy taps (Worthington is just about passable in an emergency situation). He does drink lemon tea and iron brew. (Note: cider is alcoholic and is made from apples. If it's non-alcoholic, it's apple juice. If it's made from pears, it's perry. Real perry is nice. Small bottles with foil tops and little deer on them are not 'real' perry.)
  • This user is not a rapper, which may put him in a minority.
  • This user roasts parsnips. (He also roasts carrots.)
  • This user rejects violence against women, but reserves the right to defend himself.
  • This user does not count the articles he's tagged for speedy deletion or weighed in against on AfD. He prefers to remember (but not count) those he's helped to survive, and is saddened by some of the junk that has to be removed. (A bot of some sort counts the articles he nowadays deletes, but some of them are deleted because the author asked. Most aren't.)
  • This user has been a lexicographer and is a multi-instrumentalist. Both are legal in most countries.
  • This user has been owned by cats, but is now a free human.
  • This user thinks Korpiklaani are absolutely brilliant. He almost got to a Nightwish gig, but got stuck at the wrong end of the M1. He also likes 3 Inches of Blood and Cradle of Filth amongst others. And Trio Mediæval and Wevie Stonder too. There is now an article on Bragod who aren't heavy or metal either, but are like nothin' else you've ever heard, and on the Ensemble Clément Janequin who are too (some kind person has written that one now!). There is an article on 3 Mustaphas 3, so he doesn't have to write one on them. Ergo Phizmiz and People Like Us have just been discovered by this user - why not before? (Don't answer that...) A new one on the collecting list is Sigur Rós.
  • This user has an alternative non-admin account User:Peridon in perilous places for use in, err, perilous places. Or occasionally for test purposes. When used in strange parts, the talk page will be open. Otherwise, it will be redirected to the talk page here.
  • This user is not a medicine, but is an unfortunate coincidence in naming.
  • This user admits a liking for the surreal, but has never been a tiger.
  • Even if you think you know who this user is, he isn't. So there...

Thanks for unmarking my first page contribution to Wikipedia as spam, sometimes bots can find additions to the Wiki to be misleading. DistantQuasar (talk) 19:12, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

I have 5 reasons for this:
  1. You have most humorous userboxes in your userpage according to me (so I copied most of them)
  2. User:Peridon/sandbox :P
  3. The written-not-userboxes in the begaining of your userpage is great.
  4. User:Peridon/Foreign_Parts ;) (I found it funny, dont know if you really know all of those languages)
  5. Your talks, all of them convey the perfect thing that an editor has to know, and the best part; in a polite, nice and at times in funny ways which make the conversation lite and its good for the other editor. Yasht101 :) 03:57, 4 April 2012 (UTC)
