The mongrel Gates has won again.
Being the manager of the group I should keep my member profile up to date.
To do this BG insists that I must change my user name.
I select Turist, sorry says BG, that name is already in use.
I send BG an e-mail explaining that I am the user.
OK says Bill, but you still have to find another name because that one is in use.
I ask who is using MY ID.
You are says Bill.
But I can't continue to use it because it is in use.
The saga continues for some days but the system can not be beaten. Much gnashing of teeth.

So my MSN Bill Gates user name is now the same as my registration plate.
Stupid isn't it.

Microsoft has to be the originator of "Why let logic get in the way of a good piece of software". You've had Turist for so long (as against TUR15T) that you'll take awhile to recognise yourself !! [SchizophrenicSmile] Anthony Explore this Great Land ...Do it Easy ...Tow a Bushtracker

Recognise myself?
That can be a problem at times Tony.
Crawled out of the BT one morning after a particularly heavy night absorbing all sorts of concoctions.
Red eyed, stubble on face, hair dishevelled, your imagination can do the rest.
Picked up a mirror, looked in and said to my fellow party goer, "Who's photo is that, I seem to know the face but not sure?"
Give me a look says he.
Ah! it's me you silly fool, (says he) you must be drunk not to recognise me.
