I use Richard O'Shea (think about it for a few minutes), then characters
from the Spenser novels. Generally, reviewers get annoyed at ficticious
users named "Hawk", though. And how do you fit that into a first
initial, last name user ID pattern?
But I'll probably drop the Spenser references because of the copyright
considerations brought up in an earlier message.
