Pronounced same as slang term for table tennis.

well, my nickname is ponq, ending on a "Q" (not a G). Originally it was even Ponk, but I changed it to ponq for esthetic reasons.

My firstname however is "Auke".... ;)

ROFL  ;D

It's pronounced like this:

au -> the "o" out Cow.
ke -> the "cu" part of Cunning

So, it's pronounced as a Cunning Cow in Reverse Order....

Solarplexus,

    I used to live in Canterbury NB (Skiff Lake)  from '73-'81, then from '87-'91 in Woodstock, NB.  I remember in High School we made the trip to Grand Falls to play High School Basketball.   I miss NB, but not the "Blackflies" !

Peace!

I'm zero the hero
And my head has floated away in the sky - don't know why
And now this spaceship headin' for me
I thought I was lost in the spaces and now all these faces...
And still I can't tell if it's really a spell
or exactly what's happenin' to me...

Nice to see how many people joined this thread, it's almost impossible to find an internet community with real people with real names.
