    Changing my name

    I've decided that I'm going to change my real-life name.

    I quite like the name "Mark" for a first-name, and "Read" is a not-uncommon surname in these parts.

    In a departure from normal conventions, I've decided that a middle name of "Forums" would be quite distinctive, given the amount of time I spend here.

    People would then be able to address me personally by clicking on my very own personalised menu option Mark Forums Read

    Only if I get to change my name to Open Buddy List. No wait... that name sucks... never mind. Hmmm... maybe Search this Thread? Nah!

    I think "Log Out" would be a very fasionable choice.

    "Hey Log, whats happenin"
    "Excuse me Mr. Out, we'll need you to step inside"

    If I did your homework for you, then you might pass your class without learning how to write a program like this. Then you might graduate and get your degree without learning how to write a program like this. You might become a professional programmer without knowing how to write a program like this. Someday you might work on a project with me without knowing how to write a program like this. Then I would have to do you serious bodily harm. - Jack Klein

    Instead of Read, make it Reid, then you could be Mark "Chopper" Reid
