    Hi everyone, this is sort of totally not related to any scientific topics:
    could you guys tell me from your perspective what do you think this word before sign "@" is? Yeah, I am trying to decifer someone's e-mail address, but I can't make anything out of it!
    Thanks!

    I'm pretty sure it's seven.

    Why don't you send that person an e-mail and ask?

    Look at the other words in their note that are in context where they use r or n and see which it's more likely to be, or else send an email to both and see which bounces back...then it's the other. My first instinct was "seven" though.

    I'd vote sever.
    It might have been helpful to show a little more of the handwriting sample.

    It may not bounce back. And if some confidential/private matters are to be communicated, then that's not a good idea.

    Well, I wouldn't suggest sending a confidential/private email, just a "Sorry, I couldn't quite read your note, so am checking if I have the right email address," type message. If it doesn't bounce, hopefully you'll get one reply saying, "Yep, this is it," and one either not responding or writing, "Sorry, I have no idea who you are."

    In memorium for selfAdjoint. He was a long-time PF contributor, and we recently learned that he had passed away. There is a thread in the General Discussion forum about it.

    While this thread is an inappropriate place to post such a question, you can find your answer here.

    I vote for seven...I just have a feeling.

    as soon as I get to a scanner, I will post other few words I happen to have from the person.
    But yes, I sent an e-mail at seven@... with "not sure this is correct address"-message and no one replied for several days, that's why I thought maybe I am seeing it wrong. But my first guess was "seven" as well.

    how many PF'ers does it take to send an email? :p

    Seven? Sever? The word is obviously "hasenfeffer".

    I'll go with something original and say "sena".

    My turn, my turn! Sewer. Or sewn. Or pick up the phone and ask. Or walk over to his house and kick him. :smile:

    Maybe seven was taken to they tried sevon? Although it definitely looks like an e. The last one could be an r, some people write their r's like that... sorta.
