My authoring system seems to consist mainly of writing geography articles, and then reading other articles and rewriting them from scratch. No-one has gotten mad at me yet for doing this... (yet). This explains the rather random assortment of topics under miscellaneous below. I don't actually regard the Loch Ness Monster, Dianetics, Sharia law or RAID drive systems as being my primary interests. I thought the Internet Humor was a good addition though.

My two best articles are Joshua A. Norton and The senses. If you think they're no good, well the rest are probably worse.

Wikipedia utilities - yes, this rather obvious page was my idea, as was Wikipedia utilities/Page titles to be deleted . It seems to have become a valuable resource now.
