    Hey - you know the google Define: thing? If not, go to google and type define: <word> in to the search - it gives you a nice dictionary definition

    It turns out some words are not there! This has to be a big hole in the google engine... For example - try "Define: Gullible".

    Do we get extra points for guessing which Ian Irvine book you took the name Tensor from? (assuming you didn't choose it from the mathematical meaning)

    Funny thing is, many people have thought that they know where I got it from - that its the mathematical thing, the guy in Blake's Seven who built Orac - various things like that.

    They are all wrong - its just my first initial and my name.

    The worst thing is, I started off my university life trying Physics (which proved incompatible with large amounts of alcohol and an unhealthy obsession with the internet). Lecturers and other students used to make fun of my name. I was a living geek joke.
