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.

Yet Another Way To Waste Time


John Gruber's Daring Fireball is one of the few blogs that I read regularly. It's always worth a look, and this morning was no exception; he provides a link Folklore. It's run by Andy Hertzfeld, one of the team who designed the original Mac, and is basically a repository of anecdotes about, for want of a better word, “hacker culture”. At the moment, it's filled with stories from the Mac project, which is a particular treat given it's 20th aniversary (yesterday). It's like the Jargon File, but without the whole ultra right wing neo-conservative gun nut angle.

42, Actually


The BBC have a story about the new, might-actually-happen, Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy movie. They've cast two of the high points of Love, Actually - Martin Freeman (Tim in The Office), and Bill Nighy ("Thankyou, Ant or Dec... Kids, don't buy drugs - become a rock star, and they give them to you for free!") - as Arthur and Slartibartfast respectively. They're also retaining the vocal talents of Stephen Moore, the original Marvin ("God. I'm so depressed."). It's nice to see they're not screwing it up yet, although they still have to cast almost everyone else. Johnny Depp as Zaphod? We can only hope.

Spot The Difference


To celebrate the 20 years of the Macintosh, Apple have released a very slightly different version of everyone's favourite Superbowl commercial.

Small but Useful


Raging Menace has a bunch of little Mac OS X programs by Alex Harper, and very useful they are too. SideTrack is a replacement driver that lets iBook and PowerBook users reconfigure the trackpad to provide scrolling areas, tap-to-right-click and on. MenuMeters provides a set of neat meters for memory, CPU usage and so on, that don't take up much screen real estate; I've found it particularly useful to confirm that it is indeed more memory that I need, not a faster processor (when the paging indicator goes off the scale, that's a hint). I'll probably have a look at SleepTight at some point too. It gives Jaguar the Panther-like functionality to lock the screen when the machine sleeps. Handy when you're carting the machine round, but I'm only using the iBook at home at the moment, so I don't really need it just yet.
