I'm not really sure if the LQ T's& C's condone plagiarism or identity theft!

But as Q*bert or Q*Bert are a bit of a trial to type, whynot herbert, egbert, hubert, norbert, albert, etc etc

i have often toyed with the idea of using Hugh Jampton - rhyming slang - i.e. Hampton Wick (as read in one of Spike Milligans war memoirs!)

regards

John

They didn't give me a choice - it just happened. I expected the forum to ask "Which is it then?" but instead it just assigns you "guru" until you change it in the "user cp". Ah well. Now all my posts say guru under my old name. Ah well.

Instead of Hugh Jampton, how about Hugh Jarce?

Q*Bert

P.S. I have another incarnation on this forum too - 'cubed'. I stopped using it because an early redhat Linux installer wiped my partitions and I forgot the password. Q*Bert is Cubed and Bert. It's also an 80s arcade game character.

LoL yes I do recall "Qbert" as in the game. See to recall it was "the game to play" for a while in some of the more dubious arcades on the Seafront at Brighton. You know, the ones that now market themselves as family LEISURE establishment.

Though I still can't see the leisure attraction to spending all of the "parental holiday money" like some sort of lab rat!
