A while ago, I joined this site under my true name, Nick George. I lost my password. I rejoined under my true name, as it is never used: Nicholas George. I lost my password. Finally, I signed up with my middle name, Joseph George. When I realized one could change one's name with relative ease, I considered going to my true name, but ifin a feller wants ta build a name fer hisself, he can't go changin' up on people.

Anyhoo... long story short, the time has come to get this lead weight off my chest. Perhaps I got the nerve to do so by reading a few posts of the Alfred Neumann thread, as directed to by Map's blogg.

Ah! I can hear you now! "But Nick, you forgot to consider that I don't give a damn! Why have you wasted the last 45 seconds of my life with this post?" But you must know, I HAVE considered this fact, but have decided a public confession the only route, regardless of general apathy.

Thank you for your time, and understand it to be my sole wish to contribute and build myself a name, in any small way I can.

I can recognize your signature!

Is this how we recognize each other these days?

I don't think we're that apathetic
And besides, IMHO a poster who contributes under any other name would smell as sweet... (Not that I've been helping out lately... )

Also, you can always email Javaranch to send you your password if you forget it.
