    I typed my first and last name (brian Whipple) into google just out of curiosity and the very first link actually pointed to something about me. Does your name google something about you?

    No, I've been careful, googling my name only turns up a gorgeous stripper.

    My name tells you my minesweeper scores, nanosweeper scores, and also a calculator game I made a loooong time ago, those are the links with my name that are actually me.

    I have 2 alliases, that imo are unique, and one has quite a few google results (2,000+) that are all me. My other allias, mattmns, has 599 results. Hmm, you can find my real name, and other alliases I use from my name here :redface:

    :rofl: Googling my name used to quickly come up with relevant links, but it seems I have clones running around having a lot more fun than I do now. According to Google, I'm a competitor in equestrian events, a painter, own a mansion, and the only relevant link that came up was from a discussion group I belonged to back in 1996! :rofl:

    Some of my links actually pertain to me, like my ex-presidency of some of my university organizations. There's also another chap with the same name running marathons (rather poorly) up in Canada.

    gale17 used to point to pages on pf when i googled it, and google images had the first photo i posted on pf. since i changed it to just Gale though, nothing. and my real name doesn't get anything about me either. it even thinks i spelled it wrong..

    With quotes, 14 out of the 22 results are mine (as are the first 8). Without quotes, the first 7 results are mine, but the rest (which is hundreds) are mostly about a fairly well-known actor with the same last name as me. (He was on M*A*S*H.)

    Mine just shows up conferences, publications, and some websites to which I contributed or was a technical advisor.

    Wow, Evo is actually a male drug kingpin masquerading as a mentor here:


    I've always suspected there was more than a common virus behind her complaints of having the "sniffles".

    my pf name turned up about 847,000,000 hits! But my real name only came up with a few ones about me.

    Well my nick search shows, besides some of my posts here and few other forums, an (obvious) fact that there are really lot of russian people who's name is Igor, and their surname begins with S. :biggrin:

    My real name search shows up one of my seminars I did in physics (prof has put it online), my membership in online rally racing competition, small ball team (which I NEVER played :) and some web pages I created for a guy who still owes me some money. :grumpy:

    Oh yeah... BTW, I appearently own a (french) restaurant in NY :rofl: ... although it's not decorated in my style, it's nice. And I have already donated some food from this restaurant to homeless children. o:) Woohoo ! :smile:

    Now that I have goggled a lot of other guys' googles (many most fascinating), I must confess my own google is not of much interest.

    There are a few people with my same name, and one of them is a wide receiver for a high school football team who made the game-tying touchdown (was followed by a PAT goal to win the game).

    With my real name, you can find out where I live and my phone number and a lot of personal information pertaining to me and a lot of others with the exact same name. With this, you only get my PF posts.
