I wonder if anyone is keeping these?

I'm Andrew Smith (spell it as it sounds), resident Conlanger from New
Zealand and no authority on anything.  I was born in Invercargill and
live in Dunedin.  Until recently I worked for 12 months in the Archives
of the Presbyterian Church of Aotearoa New Zealand.  Now I find myself
between things again.

My first language is English, with a general-to-cultured New Zealand
Accent.  I am not fluent in any other languages to a conversational
level.  My most active created language is Brithenig, a romance language
like French or Spanish, which has the sound changes of Welsh.  It is
said to originate from a Kingdom of Cambria decidedly different to the
Principality of Wales *here*.

Musical tastes: ummm, just reading off the shelf: Beethoven; Chopin;
ENZSO; Flanders and Swann; Handel's Messiah; Garth Hewit; Hot House
Flowers; Shona Laing; Vaughn Williams; BBC Music magazine CDs;
and The Great Composers Series; plus contemporary odds and ends; Johnny
Clegg, Sheryl Crow, The Cruel Sea, etc.
