A future one is what I'm guessing. From what we know about 'real' people Terry has included in his books, they tend to be named or recognisable: Hodgesarggh, Sandra Battye, Sane Alex, Undecided Adrian, Andy Hancock. Waddy etc.

Should be interesting. :D

Far from it :) i think my knolledge of discworld is well below some of the people on here, but i must admit i dont look into everything in the book if you know what i mean, i read it enjoy it and probably re read it several times just in case i missed some of the humour from before, i suppose my knolledge is in the publications themselves, i can pretty much tell you what was published where etc etc etc I suppose its down to my antiques background, i enjoy research and collecting for my sins and my wifes chargin but hey everyone collects something :) The maddening thing is though, that i know about pretty much all the websites that i can get the information from but at the time i just dont think about following that sort of stuff up, is it because im lazy? probably and i know theres plenty of very helpful people on here who fill in the gaps so that my ezcuse :)
