Hello, welcome to doofer.org. My own corner of the web. I'm currently constructing this site so some things may be a little unfinished.
doofer.org is the website and domain of Derek Piper. Nothing more, nothing less. Here you will find pages about myself, my family, interests and anything else I feel I want to share.
Although the knee-jerk response is 'why not?', the name does actually have some base in reality. My reality at least. 'doofer' is a phrase that just came to mean (to my friends and I at least) something and anything. It was actually a very good friend of mine who started using the phrase 'doofer'. I was also using it too before very long (strange the way a phrase repeated a few times ends up in your own vocabulary :)) and I have used it many times since when I was stuck for the correct name of something or whatever.
I decided to make my corner of the internet around this amusing phrase and thus doofer.org was born.
