About

What's the deal with your nickname? How did you get it? If your nickname is self-explanatory, then tell everyone when you first started using the internet, and what was the first thing that made you say "wow, this isn't just a place for freaks after all?" Was it a website? Was it an email from a long-lost friend? Go on, spill it.

If you wish to talk about concerns / problems with alcohol I am ready to lend an ear. I have been there and done that as they say - I was a full on Rum, Bum and Baccy Sailor for 15 years.

Vasco (de Gama) was a navigator. So was I, and so I am still.

Just in case you have been wondering ( I know you weren't) about deleted posts and the occasional inability of metafilter to realize that America is not the centre of the universe I offer you this which prompted this.

Datawankery as of January 2010 with many thanks to FishBike and this
thread.
