Glad to hear that.

Interesting topic!

Well, well, there is no reason not to disclose the origin of my nickname, so here I will tell you why I use rita1075 as a nickname.
I was baptized as a catholic when I was six years old, and my baptismal name is Rita.
And 1075 are just random numbers I chose.
