Well, ok then :(
I go by the name of Ruurd Roorda, I live in the Netherlands and was born on March 15th 1987 in a town called Burgum.

I'm currently finishing up on school, doing finals in a few weeks, and then I'm off to study philosophy. Sjeez, time flies when you're having fun :apple: :)

Errr... More info...
Yes, well... I've never really been someone for sports, although I do enjoy cycling. It's a bit of a necessity really :P

And well, I'm not lying when I say that my hobbies are few, really :ok:
I enjoy listening to music, and have a reasonably wide taste in such. I like to play guitar. I like to read and learn. I like to play games.

When it comes to playing games I've always preferred pc to console. Favourite genre would be RPG, though I have quite fond memories of sim and RTS games too. It's only in more recent years that I discovered the complete freeform gameplay I love.

I think that about covers it. If there's anything I forgot then feel free to ask me :kosta:

How does one explain that? :ok:

Well, I suspect you know how to pronounce r- and -rd. There's not much to do about the way people pronounce those letters.

But I don't believe this particular uu tone is available as anything close in English, actually :(
Just make the best of it :kosta:

And the Roorda is pronounced a bit like roar-da, actually :)

Actually, Tom made a good guess, but I'm not German ^_^
There's not really a pause in Roorda either. I put the - in for clarity.

Anyway Aristharus, I'd pronounce it Ar-is-taa-rus, or maybe ariestahroes :P

Well, if it's supposed to be latin, you're not far from truth if you read it like you would read Finnish, I suppose. However it just quite doesn't sound latin... :P
...70 years... LOL
