Re: 2IC's name

We once had a director that decided that to avoid problems with duped usernames, we would use the first 4 letters of the first name, and the last four letters of the last name...

carlhell was one of the permutations... Don't ge me started on asian names which may have only 3 letters in the first and last name.... or worse yet only 2 letters...
