A friend has found me today on a social networking website. One would think that by today everybody who wanted to find everyone else would have done so. However, there was a slight complication: we met at a Tolkienist role playing club and I only know him by his Tolkienist name. And he only knew by first name. So, after a long search involving digging up an old telephone directory and reconstructing my phone number visually (almost exactly in a Holmes way) he found out my surname and found me. Cool!
