I've written articles about:
- Staxigoe, a small town on the Scottish coast
- Phare de la Veille, a lighthouse off the coast of Brittany
- Oort constants, used in astronomy
- PayPerPost, an ethically-challenged astroturfing site.
- Herens, a Swiss cattle variety.
- Theodore Deck, a 19th century French potter.
- Cullin-la-Ringo Massacre, a massacre of whites by aboriginals many years
I'm not running out any time soon :)
