Let's see. For one database project, I used the secret identities of the
Justice League of America and the Teen Titans (Bruce Wayne, Oliver Queen,
Dick Grayson, etc...) I wish I could say that was my idea, but I had
actually seen it done years earlier on the cover of a Que book about dBase
When we did the South African-localized version of the same product, I used
the names of friends who lived in or spent a lot of time in South Africa.
For their addresses, I used the addresses of a bunch of bars in Cape Town.
