Why HardDavid?

When I signed up for a Google e-mail (GMail) account, I really wanted to use my real name. Unfortunately, with a common name like mine, all possible permutations and combinations had already been eaten up. Then, the system suggested "HarDavid" (only two Ds). It clearly was deriving the first three characters from my last name. In a fit of foolish frenzy, I decided that "HardDavid" (three Ds) would be, well, more fun ... you get the drift, I have no doubt.

I wanted the Blog to have the same name because I believe Google will soon be integrating GMail with BlogSpot, and using the same name seems like a good idea. So there it is. I'm stuck with it. Could be worse.
