An enthusiastic user of Wikipedia, his first edit was in November 2003, and he then rewrote the page on the computer language Logo. His first new page was Rochester Castle and then he has contributed to pages on Rochester in Kent, places around Manchester, Glossop and Stockport. He rewrote the Naturism, Chimney sweeps, and Sundials pages . However the real obsession is Cotton and thousands of textile mills that bracketed and defined the lives of generations in the North West- and paid for at least two empires, and drove all worthwhile Mech. Eng. advances. A recent concern has been Public housing in the United Kingdom and the dearth of POV free articles on working class life. He has worked with templates, and svg diagrams using Inkscape.
