    If I had a name that sounded like a Bond villain, I'd probably be really really careful about my conduct...

    Now I know.

    Or is your name supposed to be pronouced like 'acre' but in a West Country 'acreeeer' accent?

    Would make sense then, brand new combine harvester and all that.

    Edit: 'terminates' always sounds a bit sinister

    "Half ah kree", but you can probably imagine I've heard and read all sorts over the years. Once got a letter where they'd somehow managed to triple-barrel it, which I was quite impressed by...

    Now I'm wondering is Half pronounced like '1/2' or 'Half'?

    Would it not be easier to just get you name changed to something simpler like Mainwairing or Cholmondeley?

    edit: No idea why it has linked to Wikipedia

    Or how about Gareth Raspberree. That way you know how to pronounce it AND you know he's heavily involved with Raspberry Pis.

    "Like Intel, Rambus has confirmed it is actively searching for a replacement chief executive"

    Well, it's pretty obvious where they can each find one. Just swap, duh.
