About the Author

Trapped in a box by a Cockney nutjobDenys the Purple Wyrm is the nome-de-web of a forty-something web designer resident in Perth, Western Australia. Inspired by an early Canadian blogger he began writing whatever drivel popped into his mind on a home rolled blogging system back in 2001 and has bloody-mindedly kept at it (with varying levels of enthusiasm and coherency) ever since.

The name “Denys the Purple Wyrm” dates back to 1992-1993 when Denys needed a pseudonym to take part in the final year of local radio station RTR’s venerable “letter request” program Steregoround (you do not need to actually understand that sentence). It was inspired by one of the monsters in TSR’s ancient and mostly forgotten board game Dungeon!, and L. P. Hartley’s novel The Go Between which Denys was reluctantly trudging through for school. Denys found the juxtapositioning of a hideous monster and the oddly spelt name of a minor character in a dismal and grinding “classic of English Literature” amusing, and has used it ever since.

Unlike many internet poseurs Denys actually does have Aspergers syndrome. But he also has a stupidly high IQ, so that’s all right then. He is violently allergic to cats, rabbits, horses, dustmites, lemon scented Jiff scouring cleanser and effort.

The image above is not him, but is how he would dress if he thought he could possibly get away with it

    Preacher says Rapture now set for October
    CALIFORNIA preacher Howard Camping says his prophecy that the world would end was off by five months because Judgment Day actually will come on October 21.
    The independent Christian radio host said today the apocalypse or the so-called global “Rapture” will come five months after May 21, the original date he predicted.
    Mr Camping says he felt so terrible when his doomsday prediction did not come true on Saturday that he left home and took refuge in a motel with his wife.
    Mr Camping, an 89-year-old retired civil engineer, appeared publically today.
    Rather than give his normal daily broadcast, Mr Camping made a special statement before the press at the Oakland headquarters of the media empire that has broadcast his message.
    Last week he had predicted the global “Rapture” would begin with powerful earthquakes at 6pm local time in each of the world’s regions, after which the good would be taken into Heaven.
