John Hein lives in Edinburgh in a leg-over situation with Stu whose affections he shares with an increasingly large selection of naff hairy and older men. Also shares house with two cats - Lummox (Bruce), Evil (Grace) and The Orange Bastard - and a UAX12 exchange (sadly, just the A, B & C units from Tomdoun - anybody got a spare set of STD equipment?).

Stu likes the cats but not the gorgeous grey Strowger racks taking up a whole room. Stu also dislikes John's taste in motor vehicles - currently a Yamaha Townmate motor cycle(ette), and a 1955 Austin A30.

John Hein likes: Young men with poor eyesight, old technology (esp. anything with relays in it), transport (railways and trams), comesting (especially curry), drinking Real Ale, Cobol, BBC B computers, amateur radio (licensed as GM1YME), Church Music and National Anthems (nice tunes - shame about the words), 80rpm records, properly screwed or soldered connectors.

John Hein dislikes: Dirty dishes, homophobes, poor writers, what is commonly referred to as pop music but is in fact loud and unpleasant noise, restricted licensing hours, British Telecommunications plc (The Corporate Personification of Evil), children of all ages and none, superstitions (and those who hold them), moulded-on plugs.
