Just have to say I like the alliteration of "No Rich Relative." But any short acronymn is likely being used somewhere. Heck, I recall reading somewhere that all two letter and almost all three letter (all but perhaps a dozen) *.com domain names where already taken. Even CIA can refer to Central Intelligence Agency, or Culinary Institute of America. I knew someone once who was trained at the CIA, and he wasn't a spy but a cook. Steven,
