How could I miss this thread? Thanks to demerphq for mentioning that in this sig.
stefan k is pretty obvious: first name SPC abbrev last name (kamphausen, as you can pretty well gues from my Location and signature).

Still there is somewhat of a story.

I've been nicked 'kampi' for many years (my memory goes back to my 5th year in school; it must have been invented by whoknows in those days) and I am known by that name to several communities (like e.g. freshmeat, wer-weiss-was.de). It was just a few days before I came across PM that I met some australian person and was told that 'campy' (which is the obvious english pronounciation of kampi) or 'camp' is slang for homosexual or at least behaving that way. Disclaimer: I am not in any way against homosexuals ... it's just that I ain't one ;-)
Then I thought about it and said: well, just pronounce it correctly: cum-pee ... uhm ... yeah ... That wasn't a hit, too ;-)

So I was just in the process of generatin a new nick when I came here first and thus took a simple adaption of my real name. Now I use 'ska' (which takes the real name, too, but makes something better from it) as my username on my home machine but I need one or two more syllables before I got a good nick.

Thanks for listening :)

Regards... Stefan
you begin bashing the string with a +42 regexp of confusion
