re: What's My Name? That's pretty funny.

I usually don't bother to say a name on these conference calls, I just hit the pound key. Can't wait for the time when I'm asked to verify that.

Back before earnings calls were on the Web, you had to dial in via phone, and an operator would take your name and company affiliation. I'd get tired of having to spell my last name, and usually my first name too, AND explaining three or four times that "EE Times" was my company (which it was, back then) .... I started just saying "Ed Smith" and a random 3-letter acronym instead. It saved only seconds of my time but did wonders for my temperament.

re: What's My Name? I think the real notable thing about this post is that not only did you read 'The Enchanted April,' (or see the '92 film version), Dan, but you actually remember the characters' names.

What a polymath you are.
