Welcome to rho.org.uk, a little web site maintained by Rob Hague (see below). There's a variety of stuff here - poke around and see what you find.

Rob Hague


NaNoWriMo As mentioned above, this site is written and maintained by Rob Hague, an expert at talking about himself in the third person. Rob's homepage can be found here.

In 2002, he tried (and succeeded) to write a novel in a month. At some point he'll take the logo off the front page. But not yet.



I occasionally write things that might be of some use to other people (and isn't owned by some huge corporation or other). Some of this can be found here.

Mac OS X Odds & Sods


I've had an Apple iBook for a while now, an have generally been very pleased with it. I've created a virtual dumping ground for my musings about Mac OS X here.



This page is a collection of links to useful/interesting/fun stuff that I've come across.

You may have arrived here by mistake; if you're an opera fan, try roh.org.uk. If you're looking for Reproductive Health Outlook, they're here.


I also collaborate with Ben Chalmers to produce the Imaginary Movie Database, a site dedicated to those films that other sources seem to miss. We've not updated in a while, but we'll start again Real Soon Now. Honest.

I did it! At a little after 6:30 tonight, I passed the 50,00 word mark. I've got a couple of sections left to write, and I want to tidy it up a bit before I submit it to NaNoWriMo and print it out, but, basically, yay!

Going well...

Things are going quite well; I'm ahead of schedule, and it looks like I'll make 50,000 by Saturday (probably on Saturday. Anyway, I have a plan for the remaining 5,614 words, and I plan to try to get about 1,000 words ahead tonight, so should be able to turn up at The Moon On The Water on Sunday brandishing a completed novel. Wiigii!

Now with added validation!

I've rejigged the pages so that they validate as proper XHTML (Transitional only, I'm afraid. I do some murky things with tables in order to get reasonable results for everything back to Netscape 4, and I don't think it's time to give those up just yet.) See the buttons at the bottom of the page...

Head above water

I managed to (finally) get back on track last Saturday, and have managed to stay on the right side of the green line since then. I'm not very far ahead of schedule, but at least I'll be able to hold my head up high at the Cambridge NaNoWriMo meet tonight. (Not many people have responded - I think it got a bit overshadowed by the London event - but, hey, it's an excuse to go to the pub.)

It all started with some comic book character mugs Steven has. Anyway, to cut a long story short, I've spent far too much time this week reading the archives of It's Walky, right back from when it used to be called "Roomies" and everyone had big, big hair. I highly recommend it (it even seemed to actually increase my producutivity; I've no idea how.)

It's a sad day; I've dropped below the green line. Actually, I was expecting this by this point, but it's not too bad; I should be able to catch up at the weekend.

Almost ahead of myself.

Only managed to make it to 8228 words, so (unless I do a couple of hundred at some point today, which I'll probably not get a chance to), I'll slip below the green line. Still, I guess I can catch up tomorrow...

Above the line (just)

Not a bad weekend; I've managed to stick to the 2000-words-a-day target without too much hassle. As tomorrow is Bonfire Night, I'll not be getting anything done, so I'm going to try and get ahead of myself (8500 at least, maybe 9000) tonight.

On Ben's suggestion, I've also added a "Triangle of Delight" to the graph; this involved some disgusting Gnuplot hackery, but it works.

These Words Don't Count

As you can see, I've got off to a flying start, pissing around with this web page instead of getting todays 2000 words in. Still, it's workable now, so I don't really have an excuse to not work on the novel...
