First activity here on the commons... 16:54, 14 June 2005

While I work here quite a bit, my home wiki's are En.WIKIPEDIA and En.Wikibooks ... post here and especially there on Wikibooks if you want the fastest answer, or send an email.

(I go back and forth a lot if I'm working, one way or another— so even if I'm on Wikiversity that day, I'll see the message banner alert fairly soon if I'm online.)
I'm happy to take email at Fabartus-at-gmail-dot-com

  4. Evening, not morning person
  5. Two lovable Dogs, Tropical fish

  11. Built several computers, saw the earliest breeds, programed in 12-14 dialects and languages at one time. Now have trouble with wiki-markup and HTML more often than the ole ego likes. (sigh)
  12. Gave up web crawling in earliest 90's, and then came Wikipedia... By late 2009, my eyes began giving me much trouble, so found Trainz, which has kicked me back into wiki contributions.


  1. History
  2. Reading eclectically
  3. Cabinetry and furniture building (I needed more bookcases, still do!)

If you want more than that, you need to make a serious job offer! <G>
