Hah, funny you bring this up.  I always read your name as KB1N.  I'm used to seeing KB-1 (cyrillic KV-1) with a letter behind it so everytime I see your name it feels more natural.

КБи1

Your third letter is a long "e".  The "n" would look like a little "H".  The KV-1 was a tank, that's why I remember it.  There was a KV-1a, KV-1e, and KV-1s (which is a "c" in cyrillic).  There was no KV-1n but still, I always see it like that!

Is there some sorta of trivia contest where we could pick ten folks to represent the board and participate in.

The amount of worthless knowledge is amazing.

Lol, true enough, but I figure it's a truth in advertising thing. Maybe I can go the hyphen route...   Mr. Asteriktos-[new name]... or spelling it backwards (Sotkiretsa)...   

Nah...

I don't know what you are referring to, perhaps a place (river or park or something), but I know is as loose term to define a group of so-called indigenous people in your neck of the woods I imagine.

When I read your name the first time, I thought of the language.
