Happy Saint Tib's Day!
I have had an account on e2 for more than 23 years, which is almost a third of my life. It has come to feel like home to me, I've gained friends here, been informed, educated and entertained, and in turn have done my best to return the favour. During this time I have belched 670 writeups into the, nodegel, ranging from the banal through the stupid, from my opinions to some interesting factuals and (very occasional) fiction. Oh, and some terrible poetry.
Someone recently asked me which of my works are my favourites. I have to cite L. Ron Hubbard as possibly my favourite piece, simply because of how satisfying it was to finish without being murdered by angry Scientologists. Following that, everything I wrote for 2023's Iron Noder Quest, which are listed at wertperch's Iron Nodes 2023. There's nothing there that I am less than 100% proud of.
