I'm wondering if I need to find a way to become more memorable.

Matt (or Mark or Martin or something)

There's just a lot of M names.

And as far as my confusion, I'm a numbnuts. Just ask my father.

Wasn't me either, Bill! I think 'nonce' is a very funny word, despite its unsavoury etymology. Just the sound of it.

Edit: I always loved the Tull song 'Mother Goose'

Bill: "barking up the wrong tree post deleted"

In a shinning moment of greatness, I bought the domain name It now sits in domain limbo waiting for me to begin to bark. I don't bark much anymore.

Or was it .net? Whatever.
