Or come with Enterprise Club card :-D

Eh good for you that you have one :) Btw little off-topic, but nice story: my wife's cousin had Enterprise and wanted to be a member of some kind of EP club (I am not sure what kind of club was it). My wife was quite young back to then, and thought that any piece of paper is good to practice drawing. And it was some kind of paper should be filled to join or something like this. According to the "family story" his cousin was never more nervous before when he realized that the paper had been messed up ...

The nickname is not enough, because most people are bad with names.
 I think the best solution would be a hanging namecard holder with the nickname and EP4EVER avatar. Like this, but not landscape orientation, portrait is better.


 An additionally problem can be, people like to use the real name when talking with each other.
Imagine a situation, a forum member with name Kljt243. And then the conversation.
 - Hey Kay-El-J-Tee two-four-three (with hungarian pronaunciation: Kéjeldzsítí-tú-fór-trí), how are you?

:) That's funny enough, indeed. But btw even at my workplace and among friends they call me "LGB" (and for sure LGB is from my name, and not Lesbian-Gay-Bisex as someone suggested, eh) and not "Gabor" so I am more or less OK with that since "some" years :)

Dear Mr. Tanner,
 Is your passport ready? Have you made a flight book already?

Yes passport ok now thanks, haven't yet booked flights but will today or tomorrow. Unfortunately I think I have the choice of a 3 hour drive to London for a direct flight, or more local airport but change flights somewhere :(

Dear Mr. Tanner,

I think flight change is not a problem. You only have to get up earlier. The duty free shops of airports are spectacular, observing can take a lot of time. You can use internet and post some comments here during the waiting as well.

 One option is that you can leave your car on the airport, it cost probably no end of money.
 But there are small companys which take your car for parking, and take you to the airport with another car. So you get a surveillanced parking place cheap far away from the Airport. I don't know how this service called in UK.

Mr. Tanner, it wasn't a good idea to share the name of the hotel where you are going to stay, you will have a crowd (fans) under your window wanting you to make a new IS-BASIC.
 Anyway, have you arranged the hotel yourself? Did they speaking English or you made the booking via online?

At least I already have the odd idea to bring a BASIC cartridge to be signed :)

I arranged online - it was part of a flight+hotel deal. I must admit I assumed most hotels in Budapest would be able to speak enough English for me to get by! :???:
