I used to be able to read that.

Maybe Monger (a member here) can answer that one. If he doesn't show up remind me to send him a message.

Yup, I got yer message ........... ya see the little url on the bottom of the banner (www.blaise.us)?--well that's all it says. "Blaise." (Actually, more like boo-REH-zoo Smile) It's written in Katakana, which is a Japanese alphabet used only for writing foreign words. Why ya interested in this particular bit? Confused

On second thought, he might be trying to say praise. Wink

CI, 'pu' uses a circle above the 'fu' symbol, rather than the 2 lines ('') thingy here.
The banner is the best possible Japanese pronunciation for blaise.

Monger, What you say is true; the double apostrophes makes it a "bu," but with my poor eyesight, I see only one apostrophe, and I just assumed it to be a circle - therefore, the "pu." The second supposed apostrophe extended from the "fu" is questionable to me. Poor writing and my poor eyesight makes for mistakes, but I'll defer to your better eyesight on this one. Wink c.i.

"ブレーズ" (In an html file you can display the characters corresponding to this unicode number sequence with a browser.)
"BLAZE"(?)
"BRAISE(?)"

lmao
sorry for the thread revival, I just did a google search on my site name "blaise.us" and saw this.

The answer is that I got that text from an online translator, and like monger said, it was just the closest I could get to a Japanese pronunciation of my name. Wink
I was trying to learn Katakana..and failed miserably.Embarrassed

but the reason I posted is to clarify that I l do not live in Atlanta, I live in Atlantic City, NJ and have no idea who oristarA is lol

I'm a moderator @ neowin.net so thats where he/she likely saw that signature as its the only place I used it.

kthxbye

- Blaise
