Welcome to 2pb.co.uk
Welcome to the newest website devoted to the Hitchhiker`s Guide to the Galaxy. We are
in the process of getting up and running, but we hope that in the interim we still provide a
fun and interesting experience.
Of course, this would not be possible, and certainly not useful, without Douglas Adams
Hitchhiker`s Guide to the Galaxy. For that, wherever you are Douglas, we thank you.
But we don`t intend to eulogize him formally, because that`s exceedingly boring and
there are loads of other websites that do it enough that he could probably get away with
another four or five deaths before the cup runs dry.
Instead, we will be providing facts (often obscure, only sometimes interesting, and almost
always exceedingly useless) and fun (hopefully a little more of this) for the odd net
surfing fan. So we hope you enjoy (please take what is often called a gander at the article
from Arcturan Trader`s Weekly below) and most of all, HAVE FUN!

Of course, with all that was going on - carnival rides and games, all-farm-animal
musicals and best of all, a special visit from Moscow`s 2005 Miss Catherine the Great -
one could easily overlook the enormous contribution the site is making to the heretofore
entirely insignificant Douglas Adams and Hitchhiker`s Guide sycophant-style web site
community. Said lead writer Jameson Tuck Kirkpatrick, III, "What I think is most
important is that as we create what we hope will be a painfully silly website, our
overarching goals of paying tribute to Monsieur Adams are not lost. For nothing could
possibly be more important than wearing out the proverbial knee pads for him."
This was met with very mixed responses, some downright boorish, but the creators
collective spirit is thus far invulnerable to such verbal assaults - although the beating
received by the senior chief president of marketing and other such rubbish will keep him
in the hospital for at least another fortnight, his doctor was heard to say "I didn`t even
know you could rupture that." Ultimately, as the website brings itself along those
looking for an important addition to the H2G2 web canon will be very pleased with the
