I don't think I ever explained why this blog is called "Gendal World".
No... it's not some horrific (and misspelled) "Lord of the Rings" reference. It's actually very simple. Gendal, for reasons that my parents have never satisfactorily explained, is my middle name.
As a child, I was told that Gendal was the name of a Welsh great uncle. When several Welsh people told me they had never heard the word before, my parents said that perhaps it is Cornish.
It has several advantages..... for one, I can almost always get the user id I want on any given system (except for DNS... I used to own www.gendal.com but let it lapse...)
