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.
For your frankly inspired pep-talk to an otherwise lost young poet and editor, you deserve this. (Not sure if this is the right barnstar, but it's something.) 狐 Déan rolla bairille! 11:59, 23 May 2011 (UTC)
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)
This user has never Instant Messaged using anything and doesn't intend to. He also doesn't tweet, flicker, blog, digg or any similar things. He is considering Facing the Book - but won't be putting a link here if he does.
Beware: This user will nick userboxes from anywhere.
