Hi, Kou. So what does OTT mean? ("Oh Too Twee"?) <G> I have a pseudonym... it's taken from my Grandmother's maiden name ("Caves") and the pet name I was called as a child ("Sally"), a diminutive of "Sarah." Do you derive "Kou" from the "ou" of Douglas and the "K" of Koller? Or is it a name that you picked up in Japan? (You were in Japan, weren't you?) Is something wrong with the list? I got only two messages at noon today. Is it frozen? Sending this message will let me know. OR: is everybody on break? :) *I* am.
