User:Asa Winstanley

Redirected from AW

Hello I am Asa. I am a Christian youth minister at Wembley church of Christ[?] and I live in London, UK. I discovered Wikipedia when it was listed on Slashdot in July 2001. I then started tinkering with various bits. I continue to do so when I have a bit of time. Recently, I have taken to writing some articles as a way to revise some of the stuff on early church history I have been studying with the minsiter of my church, John Griffiths.

Here on Wikiepedia, I sign myself: aw or AW (both redirect to this page). My user name used to be just Asa, but that was needed for an article (should have thought more before i used that user name really!).

Some articles I have contributed to




History and Politics


Todo - stuff I have (vaugely) lined up to do at some point
Talk - if you want to talk to me, put it on this page

Musings and Projects

  • Early September 2001: searched for "Linux" and modified most references to "Linux" the OS to read "GNU/Linux". Exceptions: personal opinion (Wikipedian's personal pages, /Talk pages and general reporting of opinion), quotes (book and essay names) and titles (e.g Mandrake Linux).
So someone put the Linuxs back annonymously after a bit of a row in the Talk on GNU/Linux. It was certainly an interesting experiment anyway :)

  • 5th Dec. 2001 - Searched for all instances of Papacy and made sure they were linked to the article i started. :) I was seeking distraction, ok?!
