    I only realised afterwards that Tigon Man made me sound like a cheap 70's aftershave!
    I've always posted under my forum name and will carry on with it. My real name is Paul, but that's far to boring...
    I have changed my avatar though, to a picture of Tigon films supremo Tony Tenser.
    I thought it was Raymond Baxter, then the old bins aren't up to much these days.

      I'm wondering whether to go with a refreshable avatar, or stick with one for the duration...

                Maybe this is my real name...

                  Are you going to sue Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich for misappropriation of the name?

                    I recently found my brother pronounces Nikon as though it rhymed with "light on". This is annoying to me, as he is a teacher of photography, yet my wife is Japanese and she assures me that Nikon, as a Japanese company, should be pronounced "Ni-KON" (and when she says it, I am reminded of the archaic English word "begone").

                    Got to love the world and its ways.
                    I would pronounce Nikon the same way as your brother does; perhaps in part because I wouldn't dream of pronouncing Nike (the training shoe manufacturer) as "Nick". Then again, I originally rhymed it with Mike (my brother's name) until people laughed at me and said it was "Ny-kee". At least it's not Nicky (my sister in law's name).

                    At a queue in the baker's earlier this week a rather burly builder in high viz vest and hard hat ordered a scone but rhymed it with "phone" and the staff began tittering, before one of them jokily pointed out that scone rhymes with "gone". There then began a debate which engulfed the entire queue and extended to those sat down in the cafeteria. Scone rhyming with gone won by quite a margin, to the workman's mock annoyance.

                    Many years ago I had a Malaysian friend who made a point of correcting my pronunciation of tapir (the Malaysian animal) from "tay-peer" to, as she insisted it ought to be, "tap-ear".

                      That's a surprise to me, Tonch, because during my time spent in England many years go, I only ever heard it pronounced "scoan"! In Australia we pronounce it "scon", however, there is a town called Scone on the New England Highway about 2 hours from my place and it is pronounced "scoan".

                        The scon / scoan debate has been going on for years. I think that it's mainly a north / south divide

                        Nobody should get annoyed at it. There are more worthwhile things to get annoyed by

                          I enjoy a little "difference of opinion" now and again, but as you say, there are other things... like conTROVersy or controVERSy.

                            Mock annoyance is OK.

                              I dropped the number. The problem with using anything but my first name is I forget it.

                                Mine is just a simple kelp, exactly as it was on the old system, just plain old (easy to remember) kelp......Here's hoping that the new site takes off, and becomes well known. I do my best to promote it whenever talk of film comes up. All the best. G.....er.....kelp. Ha-ha.
