Strange names & The Fat Index Guy

Mogens' is pronounced with a silent g, so it becomes 'Moens' which in Danish sounds just like 'Moans'.

'Nørgaard' is impossible, but Nor-gaard is good enough for me. Nogood is shorter, easier and a bit funnier, though.

My middlename 'Langballe' means 'long cheek' in Danish, and so the jokes about are not too far off the mark.

So these days I tend to register myself at conferences as Moans Longballs Nogood. Much easier.

Speaking of strange names, ever heard about Tapio Lahdenmäki? Me neither. He's written a book together with Michael Leach called "Relational Database Index Design and the Optimizers" which is not too bad a book at all, to put it mildly. They cover optimizeres and indexes, and that's about what matters. They are focused on response times, which is what matters. They kill myths. They have ideas. Hence, according to Tuomas, they call Tapio The Fat Index Guy...

This book can seriously focus/simplify your thinking about indexes. More info on

Have you thought of lending this name to a new character in the final Harry Potter book. You would fit in very nicely. You could be a data wizard working for the Ministry of Magic.
