Hi Steve (from Thailand, right?),

Aníbal is the Spanish form of the English Hannibal, that is, I'm male.

> Maybe I should know but I've never seen that name before.
But maybe you've heard about Hannibal Barca (246-183 B.C.) The General from Carthage (see for instance http://www-scf.usc.edu/~baguirov/hannibal.htm) and/or the infamous Hannibal "The Cannibal" Lecter, right? The first one was originally, in punic, Han-n'e Baal, the one loved by god Baal or also Baal's Grace.

Yes, I recall your posts about it: http://www.ztw3.com/forum/forum_entry.php?id=7483
By the way, I have never heard of a female X/ZTree user in this area, except my students that quickly go back to Explorer as soon as they are not in my subject.

Not counting Christine Beilby (not properly a X/ZTree fan) nor Charlene who never posted driver license photo the only female poster I found (XTree fan) was:
Patricia Lange - Mar 17,2000 at 20:45
But she never posted back again. Guess who scared her out of this Forum for ever? ;-)

> Umm, I think Pat from Oman is a guy, that correct?
Yes, I bet he is.
