Dear Bill and everyone,

just a little comment: as far as I know there are two countries where 
the first name and the family name is used in different order, and these 
two countries are Japan and Hungary. I'm Hungarian thus my name often 
get people confused. Since I write from my private address, You can read 
in the From field my name in the Hungarian order: family name, first 
name, but I sign every mail in the English order. Thus my first name is 
Gábor, and my family name is Kövesdán. If You read international mailing 
lists, You should take note of that.
