u.m.r. people
Being a list of umr people's web pages, ordered using a complex algorithm involving quality of pages, ontopicness re umr, which is a debate in itself, frequency of posting, phases of the moon, and a weighting factor derived from the logarithms of last night's lottery numbers. In other words, pretty random.

2011 update: After the hosting account that drbob.co.uk lives on was hacked, I had to check through all the pages to make sure they didn't hold anything malicious (hence why most of the site is still missing). So I've been fixing some of the decade of brokenness while I was here, especially as all this Facebook inspired nostalgia has meant some people have actually been looking at this page. I've repointed quite a few links, either to new sites or new homes for the old site; deleted a couple, usually only where someone had more than one link; and put an * in front of dead ones I'll look at later, this being a work in progress. The order algorithm is now heavily weighted towards still existing.

Matt Wilson One of the u.m.r. DJs and promoters submaniac Technically this is Rupert's site, but Matt and Ben's submaniac was one of the best things to come out of the u.m.r. universe (imho) so deserves to be here. Why submaniac? It's an anagram of acubanism, thanks for asking.
Ian Betts Yet another excellent DJ Ian on Soundcloud From u.m.r. regular to Sleepless resident and, 10 years later, still topping the bill. You can tell he's serious about it 'cos he doesn't have a website, just Soundcloud, Facebook and Twitter.

Nick One of the Curious Yellow posse * curious yellow Music, raves, books, & the mysterious Cardinal, living proof that 12th century religious leaders don't understand email.
