    Greetings One and All,

    Actually, signed up a couple days ago and have been exploring a bit since to get a feel for the local ambience. Like the many informative and often witty posts and aspire to join in.
    Incidentally, my user name, 大碌佬, is street Cantonese and translates as 'big log guy', a nickname i somehow picked up in Hong Kong a few years back.
    Look forward to CPCI -- the continued pursuit of common interests
    Cheers!

    I like the "???"s, but if you want your intent to come across, work on another one.

    The neat thing is that the website has had absolutely no problem recognizing my Ch user name, or anything else i type in that language.
    Is that progress away from Anglocentrism, or what?

    Chas. Dickens had nothing to do with it.
    It's the answer to a question about how to input my username.

    Sure, a very clear idea.
    Started out in HK being called 'Daailik' 大力 ('big power'), bcos that's about as close as the Cantonese sound system can get to my Eng first name, 'Derek'. But then, when one of the locals got to know me rather more intimately, he insisted that 'DaaiLIK' was a misnomer -- ('tis true; i'm no gymmed hulk, but a lanky swimmer) -- and should be emended to 'DaaiLUK' ('big log'). We both laughed, but then over the next little while, i was able to consult other intimates, all of whom agreed that the mention of 'log' was far from inappropriate. I still go by 'DaaiLIK' in public space, of course, but this particular site feels like one place my code nickname can be hung out on a signpost, as it were. (The third character in the name simply means 'guy'.)
