Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-17-05  offramp: I used to go to school in London with a Neil Konopka. I don't think they are related; I suppose Konopka is a fairly common name.
Aug-17-05  WMD: Have you tried
Aug-18-05  offramp: I am banned from all sites like that.

I thought Konopka was a Polish name, but Michal Konopka is a Czech.
