	You spell your first name differently than .erek. reimnd.

That's a relief!  I sometimes find the process of transliterating directly
from English into lojban just a little too heartbreaking.  In this case, 
I used my French name and didn't have to mangle anything!

	No, I refuse to sit on my computer.  Anyhow, I think his name is
	spelled saimn.

Not the way *I* spell it..which is according to the Greek pronunciation.
(I guess the Hebrew original would be "cimon.".)
