    Thanks Alex8.

    Either Autogoogle your LPSG name or your real name. See what pops up.

    Did you know that Jeff Black is an indie singer/songwriter?:biggrin1:

    To autogoogle, place your name in quotations at Google

    I've autogoogle my LPSG name (and real name) before and, lo and behold, you get me! In all my LPSG glory. :rolleyes:

    Most of the results are me on LPSG (using my LPSG alias), my real name doesnt get me anywhere, as my last name is part of the name of a famous publisher, so i just get lots and lots of books.

    Under my real name, I get me, a politician who isn't me, and a fucking annoying author for whom I have also been mistaken in real life, postally, and via email. :rolleyes:

    Some of the spelling and punctuation in the positive reviews of my work online is frankly abominable, however, and I would almost prefer to receive bad notices.

    I give crappy google. It turns out that a teenage basketball player in Slovakia who shares my name gets more hits than me.

    Under my real name, I looked through the first ten Google result pages, and found my own articles listed in nearly every case.

    I was surprised to find that I have articles on Iranian government websites, several Canadian government websites, and am included in the reference entry on at least one Wikipedia article.

    Funny, half that stuff I forget having written ... and it's only after reading the full first paragraph that the memory is jogged and my feeling of authorship returns.

    But several others shared my name, including:
    -- an apparently much-recognized restorer of historical buildings in Asheville, N.C.
    -- the son of an Alzheimer's sufferer in Memphis, Tenn.
    -- an accomplished varsity lacrosse player in the United States
    -- a young entrepreneur in Prince Edward Island, the province on Canada's east coast from which my paternal grandfather moved to Alberta, my natal province, in 1904.

    Now, for my LPSG name:
    I get lots of LPSG references coming up and, for some strange reason, many references to some kind of diplomat guy whom everyone agrees was a really big prick.
    Can't be me. Can it?
    :redface: :mad: :tongue: :cool: :rolleyes: :biggrin1:

    Under my username you have to go to page 8 to find out that I'm not a character in a John Waters movie.

    Under my real name I find that I might be the nephew of an industrial genius and I was caught trying to sell company secrets to competitors.

    Damn. No wonder I don't have any money.

    In fairness, the tea-bagging scene in that movie was great, which gives it a roundabout LPSG connection. :rolleyes:

    I wasn's shocked by what I found with my usernames (I only have two) but was shocked that my real name is used in a lot of surnames in Frech horor novels, particularly in vampire novels as either the vamp or the warewolf. To think all this time I thought my name was unique.
    :cool:

    Googling my username, I discovered another coljohn and couldn't help wondering if his is a username, too. Googling my real name, I didn't want to wade through the thousands of mentions of a celebrity (with the same name) that would precede mine.

    I googled my real name and found that I'm on the Internet Movie Database, which is hilarious, considering I'm a nobody who was just on a programme about Big Brother a few times.... hardly a bloody movie star hahaha

    You should be so lucky - I've been dead since 1640.

    LPD is used by lots of people - this is my only incarnation.

    There is a stud farm with my real name - ho ho.

    But then our exits are more graceful than your entrances. :eek:
