... have any of you tried the "unfortunately" search?

You type "unfortunately *yourname*" into Google and the results can be amusing.

"Unfortunately Penny’s writings have not survived" - maybe I shouldn't have done it all in invisible ink! They would have been best sellers.

"Unfortunately Penny had very little training before arriving here so she is still lacking in some of the basics" - don't most teachers just write "could try harder"?

"Unfortunately, Penny has herself fallen into the trap of stereotyping" - I'm purple! All purple people live in fear of the one-horned, one-eyed, flying purple-people-eater. How is that stereotyping?

"Unfortunately,such a model is difficult, maybe impossible, to pull off."

Let's not go there.

As amusing as this may seem top of the list is SEA SLUGS for me, my wife agrees.

Be interested to know if the FE where to have a username for this forum what it would be and why?

I understand that in his pre-forum editor days FE was known as China.

Unfortunately, Seth's algorithm has cubic time complexity, which makes it useless for anything much bigger than the above example,

think i'll leave it at that ;0

With the "unfortunately", only links to this forum. Without it, add a few E-Bay links and that's about it. So much for fame!

"Unfortunately Roger’s body hasn’t been kind to him and he has been unable to train with the team, or run out a game as he or we would have liked this year. ..."

"Unfortunately I don't have time to write about it now, because my dear queenie is tossing my new favorite toy around, which happens to be the bounciest ball ..."

I tried with my real name and got a few business emails come up from Feb 2003 in the search.
