No elaborate background story or deep-cover operative code name here, sorry. It's simply the name of my business. It stands for managing collections, managing billing.

Definitely not!

From Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keyser_S%C3%B6ze, if you dare to believe):

Keyser Söze...is a fictional character in the 1995 film, "The Usual Suspects," written by Christopher McQuarrie and directed by Bryan Singer. According to Roger "Verbal" Kint (Kevin Spacey), Söze is a crime lord whose ruthlessness and influence have acquired a legendary, even mythical, status among police and criminals. The character was named the No. 48 villain in the American Film Institute's "AFI's 100 Years…....100 Heroes and Villains" in June 2003.


As a transplanted Chicagoan, I thought it intriquing that Soze (aka) Roger "Verbal" Kint (played by Kevin Spacey) mused (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0114814/quotes): "Tension is a killer. I used to be in a barbershop quartet in Skokie, Illinois [a Northern Chicago suburb; he wasn't--he saw the name of the suburb advertised on a flyer]...."

Dave Kujan [Chazz Palminteri]: Verbal [Soze aka Spacey], you know we're trying to help you.

Verbal [Soze]: Sure, and I appreciate that. And I wanna help you, Agent Kujan. I like cops. I would've liked to have been a fed myself, but my CP...

Dave Kujan: Verbal, you're not telling us everything. I know you know something.


ksoze, are you a "Usual Suspects" afficianado, a Kevin Spacey fan, or Kevin Spacey, himself, living in Maryland!? It doesn't matter. Incidentally, Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright star in a U.S. TV Series , "House of Cards," based on a British "Telly" series by the same name (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_o....S._TV_series)). The U.S. version takes place in BALTIMORE, MD.


As for my pseudonym, "Bimmerific," I think it is fairly obvious. I wanted to show my love for my first bimmer (535iX -- my wife has the 335iX Coupe), and not necessarily express myself through my career as a Ph.D. social and behavioral scientist, though that's just fine, too. Until my prime, BMW's (Audi's--an A6, which I previously owned, and an A4, which my wife previously owned--Mercs, etc.) were unattainable vehicles for us. In my youth, I absolutely loved the BMW 3.0 CS, CSi, and CSL--which are still gorgeous, and "terrific," as in "Bimmerific."

So, there you have it.

I don't buy it. I'm pretty sure your last name is Underhi, and your first name is Dennis.

Dennis, just imagine...



My name isn't Dennis, but it would be a cool name.

Anyway, the full version is dundunderdunderhi, but I just go by dunderhi for short. It is pronounced dunder-hee', just in case you run into me someday.

Capobranco - literally Leader of the Pack in Italian - reflects my life long fascination for large K-9s especially German shepherd dogs - I have trained protection GSDs as a hobby for many years - why Italian? I went to grad school in Bologna and continue to have partners in Florence. My Italian partners can be at times more challenging than my very indomitable GSD - hence the need to be the Capobranco - someone needs to be the adult sometimes... but fortunately not all the time " come si dice launch control? ".

Some years back I was setting up a wireless network at home and had to assign it an SSID. The mess I had created with the wires for a wireless network led me to pick the name spaghetti for the network, and eventually for my user name.
