Contributions[edit]

I have made minor contributions to numerous articles, mostly about the ZX Spectrum, SAM Coupé and various Computing topics.

My first edits were on April 3, 2005 and 17 June, 2005. I also made anonymous edits to Assignment (computer science) and Assembler, from behind an NTL proxy (82.3.32.73) on August 11, 2005. I'm responsible for edits from De Montfort University's proxy (146.227.11.232) from 11 January, 2006 to 23 January, 2006.

So far, I have only created three (hopefully useful) articles: Astroball, Challenger (video game) and Stop the Express. I created a stub for the Wallsend Metro station, out of two other articles (Wallsend and Tyne and Wear Metro), and I created Category:ZX Spectrum game screenshots and Category:Commodore 64 game screenshots, which required searching through all screenshots in Category:Screenshots of computer and video games.

I have also contributed a number of photographs to Wikimedia Commons.

I seem to have gone insane and have linked to a few Japanese articles, despite being entirely unable to read Japanese.

Recently I've been editing a few football-related articles, including some of the main World Cup articles.

I've created a whole bunch of referencing templates for women's national football teams, which eventually got replaced with {{fbw}} and {{fbw-rt}} — so I then helped to replace the national cricket and rugby team templates. Although AWB does look quite good, I found that I was able to edit quite quickly using WikipediaFS and some simple sed-scripts.

I have produced SVG replacements for the following keyboard layout images:

Pet hates in writing[edit]

  • False (or unnecessary) substitution of "Britain" with "England", "British" with "English", etc.
  • The phrase "most everyone"[1] (see 2.17.49)
  • "Alot", which in 99.9% of cases should be "a lot"

Name[edit]

Stuart means "steward" and Brady means "spirited". I am told that my name in Arabic is استيورت بريدي.
