Wapperdude's logo

Wayne,
Have you ever noticed that the reflections on the light bulbs of your logo have all a different direction?
Thought, I make you a more realistic reflection shape.  ;D

Actually, didn't pay that much attention!   :o

Now I need to go back a look at it.   :P

Thanks.

As a non-native speaker, I had to google the meaning of wapper and found a very cool Wapperdude.
I wonder if you know him.

Interesting.  No, never met nor heard of him.  "Wapperdude" is a totally fictitious fabrication.

A work associate of mine used to call me wapper...my initials being WAP.  Guess he liked the sound of it.  Pretty sure it wasn't anymore profound than that.  I added "dude" because around here, "dude" is a common greeting, it's male in gender, and the combo ought to be original, and thus unique.  So, there it is.

I did some geo-caching with my elder son the other day.
There was this question, where one had to recognise a historical coin to solve the puzzle.
I downloaded the image and reloaded it to google-images, where you can find pictures similar to the one you upload.
As those pictures are often used and re-used over the internet, it is very likely that you get offered several links with the informations you need.
Thought, I'd share this technique.

Being part-Italian, I grew up understanding WAP to be a, cough, colorful reference to part of our heritage!

A cough   :'(  ...you're killing me VisioGuy!

...and here I thought it was the sound of a spaghetti noodle whipping back and forth, slapping each side of my face as I sucked it into my mouth.   :o

This is pretty much what pops into mind when I read "wapperdude":

Interesting association.   ???

Of course, I must disavow any explicit or implicit association with royalty whether it is deserved or not.  Likewise, there is no connection to, be it direct or subliminal, to any food product, even though the pronunciation is, coincidentally and vaguely, similar.

Sincerely,
His Majesty, Wapperdude   8)

I didn't know we had a king. I thought we were an anarcho-syndicalist commune!
Ni.

That is exactly why it was never revealed.  The obvious pre-conceptions and stereo-typing.  So, I assumed identity of a normal cup of coffee, uh, you know, a regular Joe.  Participation is strictly voluntary, motivated only by the commitment to Visio, well, the older Visio.  Besides, in the USA, nobility doesn't have the same aura about it, than in, say, England.  Here, we are more awestruck by the shallow, self-serving, illusionary grandeur of superficial Hollywood celebrities.   Hmmm.  Pre-conceived, typical stereo-typing???   :o   ::)

...or, perhaps, it just all make believe...in my mind.  That doesn't make it real...

Ni???

There are more Earls in the USA than in the UK, and just everyone knows the Dukes of Hazzard.
