'HMP' (Hybrid Multi Processing)
I vote for 'HMP' so that we can always be confused over whether we're
talking about the DragonFly processor model or Hiten M. Pandya. :)
Dunno ... bad enough the surname *I* carry .
So that really is your name?
For 400+ years of specific marriage and birth records....
Of course, it's not an unheard-of surname... there was a British
minister (later prime minister) on TV in the 1980s. Still, seemed
strange on this list.
AFAIK, that was a fictional character.
A direct ancestor had a rather more lasting 'real world'
relationship with HM government.
Check the last words spoken by Charles I of England.
