ah-HAH!  "ragnar blackhammer" = "ragnar of anglessea" = "chuck kane" 
(mundanely).  do you need to know whether his name has been submitted /
approved yet?  i can easily ask him...

*grin*  d'oh, busted!  i hadn't thought of that, but i can totally
understand where you're coming from - i didn't know he HAD a last name
until i saw it on the letter of intent.

milady, i assumed no intent to slight whatsoever!  and i'm sorry if my
wording led you to believe such.  i was simply distressed that i had been
recognized in that manner while he had not; i assumed that it was an
honest mistake.  my error was in further assuming that the mistake was on
the part of the herald - for which i apologize.

a service for which i am very grateful, and for which i'm sure you don't
receive nearly enough credit.  from the name changes i've seen amongst my
friends, i'd imagine the gordian knot would be simpler to unravel... 
> Looking forward to your assistance in clearing up the "Ragnar hole", I remain

i hope this does serve to clear it up.  i very much appreciate your
patience with my thoughtless assumptions...  i'll try to put this
particular clue somewhere visible, so i can find it next time. *grin*
