    A friend told me about this cool trick you can do:

    Go to Google and type in your name and needs so for example I would type Shell needs
    Here is what it came up with :lol: ;)
    * Shell needs to be profitable and grow
    * Shell needs to take responsibility
    for all the health problems that their chemicals may have caused
    * What Shell needs is a sharp fall in the oil price
    * Shell 'needs ten years' to rebuild exploration business
    * Shell needs to seriously reconsider
    this project
    * Your shell needs to catch the signal and pass it on
    * Users and administrators
    turn to secure shell for many reasons
    * Shell Energy Services provides natural gas to homes and businesses

    Wish I had a more common nick.

    I found out that Nakia is not as original as I thought. There were 14, 100 entries for 'Nakia needs'.

    Using another nick I came up with this:
    San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy
    The San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy is located in Cardiff-by-the-Sea, California,
    ... Please remember the needs of future researchers and do not collect ...

    There were 18, 400 entries for 'Elijo'.

    Is there nothing new under the sun? I think kuemper is lucky to have a somewhat unique nick.

    edit: typos

    Oiy, it seems that Felinoid is not that uncommon a nick; I got 16,500 results, including "Diary of a nutcase" :hahaerr: (Considering it's an actual word, I'm not terribly surprised.)

    Heh, I got a bunch of hits but what instantly caught my attention is that #2 and #3 on the list were both from sorcerers.net.

    #1 is a baseball that was sold on e-bay that had JSBB written on one side.

    The very first hit:

    Having said all that 'Apeman' needs to get rid of that stupid wig because he looks like a right knobhead.

    Hmm wonder what this is all about.

    Exactly seven hits. Two for Iron Works, two for Sorcerers Place, and two for a political site.

    I put my real name in and found a West Point graduate, a fire fighter, and some guy with two wives. :D

    "Alavin ... He needs an experienced
    rider. If interested please contact..."

    238 results, and the first two are SP. Most of the results were rubbish, and this was the best from the first page.

    If I google my real name I get the first hit which is actually me (an internet chat room exercise that I participated in back in University (in 1999) was maintained by the University as an example of how chat rooms could be used in teaching).

    Apart from that, apparently there is/was an NBA basketball players with the same last name as me and another whose last name is the same as my given name. I keep hitting articles about the two playing against one another.

    Googling my full name (first, middle, last) came up with 12 hits, none were me.

    I'm digging through the 161,000 hits for my first and last name. Most are writers of some sort and there's even a sandwich! "The <insert name> sandwich includes ham, sliced apple, spinach and mayo..."

    No such results for me. ;) Well, except maybe "whatever your chev needs" or "chev needs nothing" :shake: It looks like there is someone with my first name and first surname but it's practically impossible to find someone with my full name.
