No one was offended, Pete. Some just mentioned a close resemblance - with a difference of only one letter - with my (user) name. But since I think it's fine myself, why should anyone else object? Plenty of room on the site for both of us! (People will have to read all of the letters instead of going by just a few, but they'll survive...)

BTW, I take it you do something with engines? (Always interested in terminology and such things, you see. Professional deformation, some would say.)

Are, or were you, a mechanic, Pete? Smile

Perhaps Pete was referring to his brief change of name rather than his original choice Conrad Wink

Indeed no offence taken - it just seemed a tad risque (or is that just a sign of how my mind works) for a username and indeed the system agreed Smile

Oh, ah. Right. Never mind. Was okay with me as well. We're fine, whatever he meant.

Not as such. I was a long distance tanker driver but did small running repairs (a get to the nearest garage or home service)

Quote:Actually, we do provide a facility to change your name (can be done only once so pick wisely). You can access it by going to My Settings > Change Login Details


I tried using that to give myself a big "S" but it wouldn't let me because it's thick and can't differentiate between big and small letters and it thinks that "Spaceman" has already been taken. So I'll be stuck with a little "s" forever. Sad

If you ask the "right people" I'm sure that won't be the case! Wink
