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.

Software

>

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.

Links

>

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.

ImMDB

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.

How Things Work

>

Almost anyone who grew up in Britain will be familiar with Ladybird books - small, thin hardbacks that went from basic reading ("Dick has a ball. See the ball.") to fact-filled fun for older kids such as their "How Things Work" series ("What's this, grandad?" "It's like HowStuffWorks.com in a book." "What's a book?" etc...). Anyway, someone's gone to the trouble of scanning in the 1971 and 1979 editions of How Things Work... The Computer, and they're great. I particularly like the 1971 idea of "A small digital computer designed for the businessman" (top left).
