No doubt you came here out of idle curiosity from the
Porter Stemming Algorithm page.
Before you hastily return, you are welcome to look at the following.
About meWell, I daren't break the code of English reserve by saying too much.
Dislikes: bright sunshine, disposable drink cans (like the one spinning above), chewing gum (especially when spat onto pavements), malls, musak, unstitched paperbacks, cars, graffiti, mobile phones, intransitive use of the verb ‘to lay’ and misquotations.
Reasons for complacency: Winning the 2000 Tony Kent Strix award. The 1998 award went to Stephen Robertson, and the 1999 award to Donna Harman. The 2001 award went to Peter Willett. (Go to Stephen's home page to get a glimpse of the owl on its plinth.) I need hardly say that I am in the most august company here.
Favourite web page: Is probably Cathy Decker's British Women's Novels, which has influenced my reading a lot over the past few years.
The back garden: A very important place. To see a nice painting of the view into the conservatory from the garden patio, all you have to do (all!) is go to the web site of Frau Inga Dünkelberg-Niemann at www.inga.cx, go Weiter zur Galerie, then choose Stadt-Landschaften, and then England, and click on Die Teekanne (Ruths Garten).
An oil version of this picture now hangs on the dining room wall which is behind the dark inner window you can see in the centre of the image.
Other things: I have joined the Smartlogik Action Group
After several years work, I have completed a new search engine called Grapeshot.
As a bit of fun, I have put together a Sudoku solver.
and a concordance for the Authorised Version of the bible. Say goodbye to Cruden.
