I sent that last message from my desktop for the first time; I was using my
fiance's laptop for all the others (it was more convenient for unimportant
reasons). Anyway, I use Opera Mail on my desktop, which imports all my Gmail
contacts; when I post through Opera, it uses my real name instead of my
fanciful moniker, Phineas Cromwell. I never much dug my last name...how
embarassing (oh well, its on the Players List anyway).

If there was any confusion whatsoever, thats the explanation (albeit an
insignificant one).
