Other people named Tarl
Last update 2003-9-24
A number of people have the first name "Tarl", much to the surprise of
each of us. Many are named after the principal character in a science
fiction series - Tarl Cabot, in the Tarnsman of Gor series by John Norman.
I'm not - I first heard about the series as a teenager and first read them
in college. I've determined that I was named eight years before John Norman
published his first book.
If you know of someone else who shares our name, send
me email - not to firstname.lastname@example.org, which has been spammed to oblivion,
but instead to tarl-spam at the same internet address. Oddly enough,
this account is one which I decided to use for anything that might
generate spam, but has never been targetted. My best guess is that
spammers recognize "-spam" and delete it from their lists, so I have
taken to pronouncing this address as "tarl minus spam".
The current list
of known Tarls is:
- Tarl Neustaedter.
Probably the oldest on
the list, born while Eisenhower was in office. The origin of my name was my
parents (Bill and Joan) wanting to make sure their children had unique names,
and picked mine out of a list of randomly mixed up letters.
I'm a computer and network engineer, have been on the internet since arpanet
days (really, before the name "internet" came into vogue). When the internet
started shifting away from NSF control and individual full-time connections
became feasible, I grabbed this domain name before anyone else got it.
- Tarl Roger Kudrick - Next oldest of the list. Probably born during
the Nixon presidency.
at HUD's office of Policy Development and Research during the
mid '90s, and Ph.D. candidate in Psychology at Howard University. Presumably
is now Dr. Kudrick, but haven't heard a confirmation.
Short Story written
