Happy to hear that you designed the hand: when I was on the UNIMA board I
was told that Paul Vincent Davis had done it.

I'm intrigued by your website address. My wife's family has a story about
"basingstoke" as the punchline to a joke that everyone has forgotten. Do you
know the origin of the name, or, possibly, the joke?

Thanks in advance.
