I have done it.

My real name came back as someone that owns a power company up north.

My company name came back with too many listing to post, but a few was in French...

and finally my other net name, came back as posts referring to medieval news (those who know it, understand why). lol
We are all curious like a cat. We wonder, we ask, we learn.
Please post back when a suggestion works, so that others may learn.

I went from that post directly to google my real name...OMG...9,100 links.

I compiled a word document of the two sentence blurb below each web page of the more interesting ones...and it's been hours (I think)

This could prove interesting...I haven't tried nearly all the ways to do it yet.

I'm not sure I'm ready to try my nickname :thumbsup:

No, not famous, but any excuse for past, present or future schizophrenia onsets is certainly adequately explained. I'd post a partial results list, but at the moment I'm still in traumatic shock. Quick, get me a doctor...and make such it's not a psychiatrist! :thumbsup:
