in reply to Name Space

Ryszard, (ri-sz-ard) actually its polish for richard.

I came across this name while working as a phone operator for a major bank in australia. I was in the market for a new handle, and wuh-lah, someone by the name of Ryszard came across my terminal.

I started using the name Ryszard on the local BBS's, then later on the 'net. Its just stuck ever since. Its now a part of the furniture.
