Notes from underground

يارب يسوع المسيح ابن اللّه الحيّ إرحمني أنا الخاطئ

This is the blog of Steve Hayes.

I started it in November 2005 on Blogger, and moved it to its current location in September 2012.

Since moving it, I haven’t been sure what to use it for, to distinguish it from my other WordPress blog, Khanya, so I’ve been looking for help from readers — you can help by voting in the poll.

Another way you can help is by voting for individual posts, if you find any that you like.

Some of my favourite ones are here:

Since moving the blog, I’ve also been trying to clean it up a little, and repairing or removing broken links. That isn’t always easy, though, because some bloggers rather inconsiderately remove their entire blog, which means that links to interesting posts are irretrievably broken. I’ve also been trying to remove Technorati tags on some of the earlier posts, which were once useful, but now no longer work.

If you want to know more about me you can look on the About Me page of my Khanya blog. There’s no point in duplicating that information. And there is also our Family History blog here.

    Hello Steve,

    My name is Mehdi. I am a master’s student in urban studies at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. I am now doing a research for my thesis on individual’s attitudes and belongings around the world. I use blogs for my analysis, and I have found your blog very interesting for my research. I would be very happy if I can do a short interview with you about your attitudes and cultural belongings and the way you have developed them. It just has 4 questions and would not take your time very much. I didn’t find a better way to contact you, so I commented here. Sorry for that, and please delete it after you read it.

    If you would like to participate in my research, and I would be very thankful for that in advance, please email me at
    Also, if you have any other question about my research, you are more than welcome to email me.

    Thank you very much indeed for your attention.

    Best Wishes,
    Mehdi Nejatbakhsh
