is it pronounced 'pickle less'? well that's how i say it. i spent a few days asking people what it was. one of my friends confused it with the cat, "mr bigglesworth" in austin powers...

anyway, i think i'll just go by what rk is telling me and believe he's a black box.

Picolas... Picolas...
what first name???  Pic?  Pictor?  Pictionary?  
I always really liked that name.. thought it was a word that I just didn't understand... sounds musical... or fruity.


hmmm...now i'm kind of wishing i had left it a mystery...no real names for you.

I've always pronounced it : Peek-oh-Lus

and I still am... that  is until I hear someone use it out loud, then it will be ruined for me.

It's like Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter books... always thought it was Her-me-own... then I heard from a friend that it was Her-my-oh-knee... had to read all the books over again.

well, Pic (which alone, is still Pick), I'm not going back and reading your posts again... sorry.

Come on... you can give us your first name right?  It's Nicolas isn't it?  I was going the wrong direction.

My first name is Sarge.

My mates reckon I look and act a bit like the Character of the same name from the wonderful British cartoon Danger Mouse. The 0101 came about to make it unique, so I wouldn’t have problems creating accounts for online stuff.

Oh, he’s a hamster if you’re interested!
"There was a fantastic universal sense that whatever we were doing was right, that we were winning. And that, I think, was the handle - that sense of inevitable victory over the forces of Old and Evil. Not in any mean or military sense; we didn’t need that. Our energy would simply prevail. There was no point in fighting - on our side or theirs. We had all the momentum; we were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave.
So now, less than five years later, you can go up on a steep hill in Las Vegas and look West, and with the right kind of eyes you can almost see the high - water mark - that place where the wave finally broke and rolled back." - Hunter S. Thompson.

I loved that show!  They showed it here in the US on Nickelodeon a loooong time ago, when I was a wee lad.  I think some of the British humor flew over my head, though.

I've been using this name for stuff for a long time.  I don't even remember the origin any more.


Didn't it have something to do with you starting a band and your dad mentioning a polka/blues combo? Damn this memory of mine.


Damned if you're not right.  That's scary when other people remember aspects of my life better than I do.   8)

A friend and I were talking about starting up a band, and we were thinking of what genre to play in, and my dad pipes up "Polka/blues?"  And we all had a laugh, and somehow or another it stuck around.  Though the band turned out to be more of an acoustic alternative rock deal.

Thanks, Dirk!
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.
